Bling-tastic Tuesday…or Wednesday Vol. 4


Do I have your attention yet? Ok, well, if not, here’s a giant photo of the 2nd most delicious cheesecake I’ve ever had:

Not forgiven for being MIA? 😦

Sorry for completely going missing the past week. The work induced crazy-busyness has completely ramped up within the last week or so, and when I haven’t been slammed w/ work responsibilities, I’ve been completely booked w/ previous personal plans. Gahhhhh! How do you fellow working bloggers even keep up? I clearly need to plan better…

Anywhosits, I didn’t want to miss a bling-tastic Tuesday…or Wednesday, so here is a new post for your viewing enjoyment! This week I am featuring a polish I found whilst on a search for a brick and mortar retailer that sold butter LONDON nail polish. This was mainly b/c I was experiencing a momentary, lust-induced mania to acquire a few of their fall 2010 colors (swatches: Vampy Varnish). So yeah, I totally didn’t find any of the new colors, but I did find this oldie, but goodie! (Ok, “oldie” may be relative since it was from last year, but it’s not from a new, shiny collection for this fall.)

This little gem is called Henley Regatta and I’d describe it as blue/green glitter in a sheer, teal jelly base. This application took about three coats (maybe four, but I really can’t remember now) and has a coat of Seche Vite on top. I think it would look gorgeous layered over something else, maybe over butter LONDON’s Thames?

The thing that I really liked about this specific glitter is just how alive it looked on the bottle and on the nail. In person, this was just so glittery and shiny and eye-catching!

Well, sadly, that’s all I have for now, but I’ve actually got half of the Fall 2010 China Glaze Vintage Vixen collection (that’s still six polishes) swatched for your future enjoyment once i have time to sit down and edit the photos. Oh, and the Orly Cosmic FX collection too, but I think I’m going to have to redo those b/c I took them indoors w/ flash and I just wasn’t able to capture the duochrome-y goodness. So those I’ll redo outdoors.

And please, please stay w/ me for the nail tutorial. I think I may have made this in to more of a project than I originally intended. I had this grand plan to basically provide a work instruction complete w/ photos (I did warn you that it could get ugly!), and have already started executing this plan. I’ve got most of the text written, but I still need to take and edit corresponding photos.

Ok, lovelies, I’m off to bed (but I’m scheduling this to post at 9AM so I’ll be awake again when you read this, LOL) so I can be in top form for a cross-functional meeting I’m holding tomorrow. Wish me luck and have a Bling-tastic Wednesday! 🙂

  1. I am so hungry and that picture of cheesecake isn’t helping!! It looks amazing!!

    Henley Regatta is also an amazing color. I wish I could find a Butter London retailer in my state.

    • Hi Lynn!

      Heehee! Sorry about not helping w/ the hunger, but I just had to share! Henley Regatta really grabbed my attention while I was in the store and I’m glad you enjoyed it. What state are you in, if you don’t mind me asking? I was pretty shocked to find a brick and mortar retailer in the metro-Detroit area in general…

      • I live in Jacksonville, FL. We have about 11 Sally Beautys, 1 Sephora, and 1 Ulta. Nothing out of the ordinary, unfortunately.

  2. This may very well be the loveliest that I have seen you wear to date.

  3. love reading your blog once a week. now i want cheesecake and flowers and from another post, i love the vixan colors. cool stuff.
