We are back to the grind of the work week! I have a blue manicure for you today to fight those Monday Blues 😉
I am starting this week with high spirits, but a few days back I had the manicure-blahs and was left without inspiration/idea on what to paint my nails. Stephanie from Sincerely Stephanie came to the rescue with her suggestion: “why don’t you search Pinterest for some inspiration”… and so I did. It was moments into my search that I stumbled up THIS look and I knew I needed to recreate it 😉
I started out with two coats of a ‘mystery’ Color Club polish (I bought a set of Color Club shades at a local Winners a while back and the set and bottles are not labelled). My limited swatch googling makes me think that this is Take Me to Your Chateau and for the time being (unless you can better help me) I shall refer to it as such 😉
This Color Club is a pale blue cream polish with a little bit of ‘life’ in it so as to make it a tad brighter than the average pastel baby-blue polish.
I stamped using Konad Plate S6 and Essie Bobbing for Baubles (a shade that I just can’t put down)… that is part of the reason I added a solid accent finger. I won Bobbing for Baubles in a giveway over at Gosia’s blog and I absolutely love this blue! I do!
I hope the only Monday Blues that you are having are those on your nails! 😉
If you do have a case of the Monday Blues… I hope this little home video (taken this weekend) will help put a smile on your face.
This is 19 month old Jackson trying out some moves… maybe with too much gusto 😉
(Caution, when attempting this at home… a helmet should be worn at all times)
If you are wearing blue today, I invite you to tweet out your manicure with the hashtag #MondayNailBlues. I think this would be a neat way to sport some blue and have a fun way to connect with other nail polish enthusiasts. Spread the word, the more the merrier 😀
PS. Do you know what this Color Club shade could be?
