*throws neon confetti to celebrate the end of the work week*
This is my weekend off of work, and I am excited to be going to a Blue Jays Game tomorrow!!! Peter and I will be meeting up with his best friend in Toronto; we are taking all three kids for their VERY FIRST baseball game!
But enough about me …
Today we will be showing you Edie.
There, the scream of frustration out of the way, I can try to calmly tell you how challenging it was to get this polish to photograph accurately… and I will forewarn you that the shade is still not color accurate (best-of-my-ability accurate, but not 100% color accurate)
Edie is a neon turquoise-green. This is three coats, without a white base. For a neon-ish shade (I say “ish” because this polish is bright enough to be in the neon family but not searing-at-your-retinas bright) this applied quite nicely and dried semi-matte. The above swatch is with topcoat.
SIDE NOTE: Not too sure why this shade is called “Edie” either! If you do, please let me know! PLEASE! (I’m curious; Color Club doesn’t seem to just give ‘simple’ names to their shades).
(probably my closest to real life shade photo)
I used Mash-47 and Wet n’ Wild Black Creme for the hounds-tooth stamp. The accent nail is one coat of Cult Nails Nevermore (a PURRRRRFECT one coat creamy black).
The color at the base of my nails would be closest to IRL coloring of Edie. But I tell you, this shade was not only camera shy, but was outright mischievous!
I encourage you to check out Carmela’s blog… maybe she, and Hammie, found a better way to speak through to Edie… get him/her to pose better for the camera

Do you have any fun weekend plans you’d like to share with me?
Do you have any clue why this shade would be called “Edie” (to put my guessing game to an end)?
Any mantras you might have for me to use why photographing stubborn neon shades?
