Hello Lovely Ladies!

I don’t know what it is, but I just adore bright blue pastels and I don’t know if I will ever tire of adding new ones to my collection.  This fascination with this particular hue of polish is rather odd to me; had you asked me a few years back (when all I wore was milky-sheer and nude shades) if I would ever dare to wear blue I probably would have giggled and answered: “pffft, me? No way!”.  Perhaps I can blame the likes of Pinterest for this little blue fetish of mine, the ‘pins’ making these blues look ever-chic!  Winter or spring I love me some vivid pale blue shades; the perfect match for a cozy sweater OR flip flops.  The most recent blue addition to my stash is essie Blossom Dandy from the Spring 2015 collection.
