Blue Monday

Today is known as blue monday, it is apparently the most depressing day of the year
I'm not feeling at all blue, I got a letter from college for an interview about a nails extension course starting next month and I started my blog but I thought in honour of blue monday, I'd franken a blue polish :)
Its my first attempt so its not perfect, I think I added a little too much pigment. I used a few shades of blue mac pigments I had laying around with some blue, silver and holographic glitters I got with a nail kit.
Edit: I re-swatched, re-photographed and added some holographic hexagons to it :)

Here it is without the added hexagons:

And with the hexagons (excuse the claw hand):

And with a flash, on my dog :) (old camera phone pic)

I'm happy with my first attempt :) Its just right for a blue monday, a silver-grey-blue with rainbows when the sun comes out.

First Blog Post...Eek

Well this is my first blog and first blog post, I'm not really sure where to begin so I'll just jump straight in there;

This is 2 of my favourite Illamasqua nail varnishes, the one that appears purple is actually a really pretty pink called Obsess, I'm not sure why I cant get this to be true to colour, camera issues maybe but it is more fuchsia in real life with a purple undertone, and the green is Radium which has a glowing yellow shimmer to it.

I added a little pink skull to my ring finger to help tie in the two. One final thing to mention about Illamasqua varnish, I have 5 or 6 of them and they are great, colour wise, formula wise, almost one coaters and they last for ages so if you have the chance to buy some go for it :)

And... that's my first post, I'm going to go "franken" my first polish to celebrate, I have an OPI called I Juggle Men that I think will be a great base.
