Sorry for my small leave of absence...it's now Sunday afternoon and my last post without scheduling was Wednesday night.
I went on vacation this weekend. Not far, just down the shore, and I had expected to do some posts when I got there, but there was no internet in my hotel. NO INTERNET!!! It's 2010 people; we should be getting internet on every street corner by now! Blasphemy. I was really disappointed that I couldn't post or read all of your new posts.
I had scheduled my Jade is the New Black post to go up Thursday night, so at least you got to see that. I'm still wearing that color, and I got compliments from strangers while I was away =] It lasted from Wednesday til today pretty well. It's weird though, because I have very little tipwear, but many of my nails have small chips...not really sure how that works.
So maybe this will make up for me being MIA (I'm making a huge deal out of being gone for 3 days, lol). I only have two bottles of Orly polish, Royal Navy, which I bought after seeing gorgeous swatches on blogs, and one called Terracotta, which I bought years ago, before I'd even heard of the brand, because it was pretty =]
Here is glorious Royal Navy:
I believe this was 3 coats? The base is kinda jelly-ish. This is a darker royal blue (not quite navy) color, with some teal shimmer in it. Look at those flash pictures! So pretty.
And here's Terracotta:
Definitely no cleanup going on here...>.<
2 coats, cream finish.
Yeah, I know...you're all looking at that last picture going, JANNA, YOU MESSED UP THE SWATCHES. THAT'S NOT THE SAME COLOR. But alas, it is. I'm not sure why the no flash vs. flash pictures turned out sooooo different. My advice for that last picture is, at least for my laptop, to lower (not tilt) your head so that you're looking up at the picture; it looks way more red that way, more true to the actual color. For some reason my camera picked up a TON of pink. Sorry.
Here's a good picture of what I think this color looks like, since the first pictures are too orange to be accurate.
My favorite flower =]
It's hard for me to describe...it's red, but kinda orange, leans a little pink....warm, but soft...
If you have any suggestions on how to describe this let me know. =p
There you have it! Until next time,
PS. Thank you to all my new (and old =]) followers!
