Blue Polish week! For Audrey

Happy Monday all!  It's back to work and school after the much-too-fast break, although thankfully only work started back up today - I still have three more weeks until I start my last :( semester of grad school.

I'm a member of the Purse Forum.  In a polish thread, we determined that this week would be blue polish week after I noted that I always think of January as a 'blue' kind of month.  I guess a lot of us associate colors or shades with months - reds and pinks for February, sunny yellows for August, orange for October, etc.  So this week, I will be doing five blue manis, beginning with my favorite blue of all: For Audrey!


China Glaze For Audrey, with Konad plate m51 in Zoya Tallulah
I used two coats of For Audrey, which dried very fast.  This is my favorite blue ever - followed by Tallulah, my second favorite :)  For the design, I tried to place it in different directions on my nail to make it more interesting.


See any peanut butter cookie crumbs?  I've been munching on them all day!  I participated in a cookie exchange yesterday, so I have all kinds of goodies to completely destroy my New Year's resolution of getting back to being healthy.  Although J's parents gave us Dance, Dance Revolution, which has been SO MUCH FUN and a great workout.  I am obsessed!

I'll have some more January blue tomorrow.  Have a great evening all!

Necro!! Good to see you here! I love the inspiration I get from tPF :D

Trincess - I love For Audrey too!! I need to check out Illamasqua Rampage, thanks for the recommendation.

Thanks Rija - I agree, For Audrey is SO HARD to photograph. I can never seem to accurately capture the color.

Thanks Gildedangel and Thess!!

Another beautiful blue manicure. I think Febuary should be when we start our diets. After all we still have cookies!
