#paamanimonday Primary Colors



Hey everyone! I haven’t decided if I like a M-W-F posting schedule, or a Tu-Th-Sa posting schedule, so I’m trialing both! Last week was M-W-F, this week will be Tu-Th-Sa. Hopefully by next week I’ll know which I like better.

Anyway, onto today’s post, which was done for Polish-aholics Anonymous on Facebook. Each week on Mondays they have a theme that members can submit manis for. Totally optional, and totally fun! This week was the first Monday I actually thought to participate, and the theme was primary colors. (I did actually have the mani done last night)

Rainbows: Red



This is the start of a series I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but I’ve been missing a few polishes to make it work perfectly. Now that I have everything I need, I can start the series.

I have a bit of a fascination with rainbows, even if I haven’t shown it off on the blog. And I noticed in my process of collecting I was, obviously, collecting rainbows of polish. But not just one rainbow, I was building a variety of them. I was working on a standard rainbow, a pastel rainbow, a dark rainbow, etc.

I’m debating if I’m going to include other finishes, but to start this series is going to encompass the six colors associated with “colors of the rainbow” (yes, ignoring indigo), and for now just creme finish polishes. I’m gonna pick one polish from my stash to represent each shade of the color: a dark/vampy shade, a bright shade, and a pastel shade.

And we’re starting with red.

September (and October) Haul



Hello! Taking a quick break from my novel to put up my September and October haul post. It’s a double haul because like I’d mentioned in an earlier post, September’s haul was so small that it didn’t warrant its own post, so I decided to combine it with October’s haul.

So, here we go!
