Thundering Waters

So I know it's been a while.  I went on vacation a few weeks ago and so for now I'm going to show you my nails I did for my trip to Niagara Falls.  I got several compliments from the locals which is always a treat. 

I basically used the "grunge" technique with less grunge-y colors.  I wanted it to look like the rushing water going over the falls so I used several shades of blue and some white.  I absolutely love the effect!  

What do you guys think?

Bohemian Luster Chrome!

Last weekend I got a couple of polishes from the new China Glaze Bohemian Luster Chrome line.  As most of my fellow lacquer addicts I have been lusting after most of this collection since I first heard about it.  I was very fortunate that the ladies working at Sally's are enablers and brought out the fall collections for me to preview when I went in there last weekend.  so of course I had to get some.  I picked up Deviantly Daring and Unpredictable.  

Deviantly Daring is a lovely blue green duochrome.  The color flash isn't as strong on this one as it is with some of the others in the collection, but there is a definite color shift from blue to green.  It's just not as obvious as some of the other duochromes on the market.  

Unpredictable is green with a blue shift around the edges. The also flashes blue in lower light. Out of the 2 this one is definitely my favorite.  I wouldn't say green is my favorite but I always gravitate towards greens and this beauty is no exception.  I'm sure I will be picking up the rest of this collection eventually.  I just can't resist!  What do you guys think?
