Holy moly, the last week has been horrendous for me. A very drastic emotional rollercoaster. Here's to hoping the next week isnt so bad.
In the midst of the very bad week I had, I did get some good news that someone very close to me is expecting a new baby boy! This is BIG news, the first baby boy in this big very estrogen dominated family. haha so everyone is beyond exciting and I decided to celebrate in my own way, with an "It's a boy!" mani! What better way to do that than with beautiful blues?!
I used Sinful Colors Cinderella. This color has been hugely popular in the nail polish world lately, for good reason. Its a beautiful baby blue with subtle flashes of pink shimmer. Its not your typical light blue at all, its gorgeous and definitely unique. The flashes of pink shimmer set it apart from the rest, plue its perfect for spring! And the name fits it perfectly!
On my ring finger I thought it would be cute to add a little foot print in a darker blue. I used a Color Club blue for that, it doesn't have a name on the bottle but it is gorgeous and will definitely have an upcoming mani featuring it.
Enough blabbering, here are the pictures!

Again in natural light with no flash. I couldn't
quite capture the flashes of pink shimmer
but in this one you can definitely see it has
some kind of shimmery goodness!
This is an indoor picture with a flash, not a
very good representation of Cinderelle but it
shows the foot print better so I included it.
All in all, the application way great, although I did use 3 coats. It was oppaque for me in 2 but the third just finished it off perfectly. I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite top coat. I can't wait until these nasty ridges grow out! Any tips?
What has been your staple polish for Spring?
I hope you all have a great weekend and week to come.
