Mystery Monday - What color is this??

HELLO FELLOW FOLLOWERS!!

I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GREAT FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND.  WE SURE DID AT OUR HOUSE.
ALL 3 OF OUR CHILDREN ARE GROWN AND ON THEIR OWN.  AS MANY OF YOU HAVE READ, OUR OLDEST IS IN THE AIR FORCE SERVING OUR COUNTRY PROUDLY OVERSEAS, OUR YOUNGEST JUST GRADUATED FROM GEORGIA SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY, FROM STATESBORO GEORGIA (DUH - HENCE THE NAME GEORGIA SOUTHERN!!!) AND OUR DAUGHTER - WELL, SHE IS WORKING......OUR LAST NERVE!! :-)

SO , SINCE WE HAD NO CHILDREN AT HOME TO MAKE A BIG TO DO AT OUR HOUSE - WE JUST WENT TO BREAKFAST, THEN ON TO CHURCH, WE CAME BACK HOME - ORDERED TAKE OUT AND WERE BUMS THE REST OF THE DAY.  HUBBY DID GET A MANI/PEDI FROM ME, HE REALLY ENJOYED THAT.  HE SAID I DID A BETTER JOB THAN THE TECHNICIAN AT THE NAIL SALON!!  WA-HOO!!  THAT WAS THE GREATEST COMPLIMENT.  NO, I DIDN'T TAKE PICTURES - IT DIDN'T EVEN DAWN ON ME TO DO SO.  *SLAPS HANDS - BAD BLOGGER!!  BAD BLOGGER!!*

SO, HERE ARE MY PICS OF MY MYSTERY POLISH OF THE DAY.
I RECEIVED THIS AS A FREEBIE (I GET A LOT OF FREEBIES FROM SWAPPING AND CP'S) AND I THOUGHT IT WAS RATHER UNIQUE.  I REALLY DIDN'T AND STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK OF IT.
THAT CAP READS GREEN, BUT I COULDN'T CAPTURE IF IT WAS BLUE, GREEN, IRIDESCENT AND/OR DUO CHROME.  SO I JUST CALLED IT MY MYSTERY POLISH!!
SEE, IT FLASHES IRIDESCENT.  IT'S ALSO A FROSTY POLISH WITH FLASHES OF PURPLE, PINK, BLUE AND GREEN.  OR IS TI JUST ME SEEING ALL THOSE COLORS.  (MAY STILL BE SUFFERING FROM TOO MANY MIMOSAS!!)  
THIS POLISH HAD SO MUCH GOING ON WITH IT, I COULDN'T CAPTURE THEM ALL. 
MY WONKY FINGERNAIL BROKE THIS WEEKEND!!  IT BROKE DOWN TO THE WHITE MEAT!!  I DARE NOT SHOW THE EERIE FINGER, AND YOU WON'T BE SEEING PICTURES OF MY RIGHT HAND FOR A WHILE.  THERE WAS NO BLOOD, BUT A LOT OF PAIN!!  HOW DID I BREAK IT YOU ASK - SHOE SHOPPING!! YES, SHOE SHOPPING!!  I SAW A PAIR OF TO DIE FOR SANDALS THAT I JUST HAD TO HAVE, I KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO IS A SHOE FANATIC!!  ANYWHO - WHEN I REACHED FOR THEM AT THE TOP OF THE RACK, I LOST MY BALANCE, REACHED FOR THE RACK TO CATCH MY BALANCE, MY HAND MISSED, BUT MY NAILS SNAGGED THE RAIL AND I YELPED LIKE A PUPPY THAT HAD JUST BEEN STEPPED ON!! 
(I GUESS YOU FIGURED OUT BY NOW - I WAS IN THE CLEARANCE SECTION OF THE STORE AND NOT THE FRONT, WHERE THEY HAVE SALE ASSOCIATES WHO GO GET YOUR SHOES FOR YOU!!)
THEN MY THUMBNAIL BROKE - ON THE SAME HAND - ON THE SAME DAY, REACHING FOR THE HANDLE OF THE DOOR TO LEAVE THE MALL AND SNAPED IT!! (I REALLY NEED TO LAY OFF THE MIMOSAS - THAT'S MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT!!)  MY THUMB NAIL DIDN'T BREAK DOWN AS FAR AS THE RING FINGER, SO I WAS ABLE TO FILE IT DOWN AND IT LOOKS BETTER, BUT NOW IT'S REALLY, REALLY SHORT.
OH YEAH, BACK TO THIS MYSTERY POLISH - I BLURRED THIS ONE ON PURPOSE TRYING TO CATCH SOME OF ALL THE COLORS THAT IT HAD GOING ON WITH IT.  IT REALLY WAS PRETTY.  IT WAS SHEER, SO IT DID REQUIRE AN OPAQUE NUDE POLISH UNDERNEATH AND THIS WAS THREE COATS - SO THAT LET'S YOU KNOW HOW SHEER IT IS, PRETTY, BUT SHEER.

SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
DO YOU HAVE ANY POLISHES THAT MAKE YOU GO, HMMM?  DO I LIKE IT OR NOT?  IT'S NOT UGLY, JUST DIFFERENT.

WELL, THAT DOES IT FOR ME TODAY.

UNTIL NEXT TIME...HAPPY POLISHING!!

P.S.  I DIDN'T EVEN GET THE DARN SANDALS AFTER ALL THE PAIN AND SUFFERING I WENT THROUGH TO TRY THEM ON!! :-(

DON'T BE A GHOST - LEAVE ME A POST!!

  2. Thanks for band-aids for my boo-boo!! I had not heard of this polish either until I saw it in my package. Between L'Oreal and Sally Hansen I don't know who has had more changes and bottle modiications.

  3. Looks like the color name on the cap is Green Tourmaline. I have a Sally Hansen one similar to this (Lime Lights) and I use it as a top layer over greens or blues to add something extra because it's so sheer. I hope your fingers heal quickly!

  4. OHH!! That's a great idea!! Thanks for the suggestion!! I'll be sure to take heed to it next time I wear a blue or green (looks through own stash and contemplates my next mani)

  5. I agree with desertnails8 Very pretty but these type polishes are great for layering over other colors. Sometimes Opaque Nudes doesn't work the best for sheers.

    Love the shimmer in it :)

    Becareful those shoes aren't going anywhere take your time. LOL!!
