Sound of Drums - Franken, Cute Blog Award and Hooked! PostThursday, January 19, 2012
Good afternoon, dear readers!
Sorry that I haven't been doing much on here for the past little while; I have been pretty busy and reaaally tired lately.
For today's post I wanted to show you a swatch of Sound of Drums, a beautiful franken made by my sister. This franken was part of the first set my sister and I made (here is the link to that post).
This is a lovely sandy/bronzey polish with the most beautiful tiny green shimmer specks in it. Unfortunately, my camera would NOT pick up the green, no matter which way I posed my nails. :(
I really love this colour!!! :D
I will be swatching a lot more frankens when I return home. These photos were taken earlier in the week, and as you can see my skin is pretty grumpy at me!
I also wanted to send out a huge thanks to Kia from NailsN'cupcakes for giving me the Cute Blog Award!!! :D (I love this award, it is sooo adorable!! XD)
Thank you so much, Kia!!! :D XD
I have received this award before (but I love receiving more!! :D!), and here is the post where I linked some absolutely wonderful blogs. I really suggest checking out Kia's wonderful blog, and the others on my list! :D
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! ^_^ :D
Now for one more thing! Yesterday hollysagemini from Hooked! made a post on the upcoming 2012 nail polish trends, and asked several of us bloggers if we would like to contribute to the post! I was very lucky to be able to make a manicure on the 'pastel' trend, and you can see the article here! These are some gorgeous manicures by some very lovely people, and I heartily suggest checking them out! :D
Here is my submission to the post (I made this manicure before I left home):
For this manicure I used Orly Snowcone, China Glaze For Audrey, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow and Mini Sally Girl polishes in Simple and TTFN.
I hope you like these swatches, and that each and every one of you have a wonderful day! :D
