Hello Lovely Ladies,
I went to my monthly book club meeting this past Wednesday and we discussed “State of Wonder” by Ann Patchett. If any of you are avid readers, I truly recommend this book (you can read my review of this novel, via Goodreads here). But I know you didn’t tune in to read about what I read 😉
Today I have two more lovely White Owl Lacquers to show you: Dwelling on Dreams and Pumpkin Pasties

Dwelling on Dreams:
Mara says: “We don’t have to forget to live… but our dreams are also a beautiful place to be…”
Dwelling on Dreams is described as a: Teal, aqua and gold glitter in a milky white jelly base. Can be used alone for a softer look or layered over white. A mix of matte and metallic, hexagonal and square.
(one coat over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls)
This mixture combines some of my favorite things into one fun and flirty polish (I think this shade also proves that Mara and I are, in fact, nail polish twins 😉 ): an off white/grey base with the perfect amount of GOLD and turquoise and baby blue sprinkled within.
If you love white nail polish you will LOVE the extra sparkle… if you do not like white nail polish, the sparkle might just be enough to convince you to give white a whirl 😉 This dreamy mixture does dry a little matte so you may want to add a layer of topcoat 😀
I played around with this polish just a little bit more and added OPI Golden Eye (one of my prizes from www.NailPolishCanada.com) to the pinky, and essence Let’s Get Lost to my ring and pointer finger. A few gold BornPretty Store studs complete this look.

Pumpkin Pasties is described by Mara as: “Sweet and spicy, with a touch of Fall and adventures to come!
Red, orange, yellow and brown glitter in a milky orange/peachy jelly base.“
(one coat of Pumpkin Pasties over two coats of OPI Malaysian Mist)
If you follow my blog long enough, you will surely know of my weakness for pastel peach shades, therefore it should come as no surprise that I absolutely LOVE this mixture of warm-toned glitters and a jelly pastel-peach base.
I didn’t want to take too much away from Pumpkin Pasties by covering it with stamping etc., so I decided on an accent nail. For this one I applied two coats of Barry M Peach Melba (please note just how close in color Peach Melba is with Pumpkin Pasties). I stamped using white and Mash-39. I then stamped the floral design with Konad m21 and Revlon Espresso. I covered the entire nail with one thin coat of the peach-jelly OPI Malaysian Mist, and added a BornPretty Store rhinestone.
