Cool Off Colors

I don't know about everyone else, but where I live it is hot! I know I shouldn't expect any less since I live in Florida, but I hate the heat! It's not so much the heat as it is the humidity. Blech.

Today I wanted to show some cooler colors that I think will be great for spring/summer!

Orly La Playa

This is part of the Orly Viva Summer 2010 Collection. It is a dark navy blue creme that applies like a dream (cheesy rhyme). I am in love with this color. This is my first experience with dark blue cremes. I never thought they'd look good on me, but I am pleasantly surprised. I think it's launched a new love for me. I'm now on the hunt for more med-dark blue and med-dark purple cremes!

Petites Figi

On the bottle this says Figi, but I'm not sure if they meant Fiji? Can you spell it both ways? Anyways, this is a shimmery turquoise color. It looks like crushed up pearls put into a polish. It's very pretty and I can't get enough turquoise!

China Glaze Watermelon Rind

Watermelon Rind is a green-blue color with silver and green glass fleck. This color is very unique and very beautiful. It reminds me a lot of the color of tiles you see in some mosaics.

Sally's Girl Surf's Up (812047)

Surf's Up is a sky blue with a hint of aqua creme. The color reminds me a lot of the color of water you see in the tropics. The reason I put a number beside the name is because the last trip I took to Sally's Beauty supply these polishes no longer had names on them just numbers? The only downside to these is that they are very small bottles but if you like a color enough it's only $1 so you can get multiples.

China Glaze Coconut Kiss

Coconut Kiss is a shimmery violet purple. It's a beautiful purple that looks better on the nails than in the bottle I think.

That's it for today. I can tell you right now I'm really into cremes right now! What are colors or finishes are you into this season?



  1. I love La Playa on you!

    And this summer, I want to wear lots of glitters, holos, and neons. But that depends on where I end up working.

  2. love figi! i'm going to have to pick that up.

  3. Choas=Thanks so much! I like being surprised by colors like that. I've been wearing it since Friday and I usually change my polish every other day.

    Kaitlyn- Figi is really pretty they had some other summery shades you might like too in the Petites brand.

  4. I'm loving Watermelon Rind, I can't remember if I own that or not but if not, I need it. I almost wore Coconut Kiss for my first day of work today. lol but Grape Juice won out.

  5. Looks like I'm going to have to make a Sally's run. :)

  6. i found your blog! yay! i think you have got me sold on that orly!

  7. Surf's up looks like a great blue! hopefully my Sally has it!

  8. Yay! I'm glad you found it jbrobeck! :) That Orly is amazing!
