OH SHREK!! (Pt 2 of 2)

HELLO FELLOW FOLLOWERS!!

WELL, I KNOW I HAVE BEEN USING TUESDAY'S AS MY FAT TUESDAY - BUT I WANTED TO FINISH WITH THIS COLLECTION - SO NEXT WEEK WE SHALL BE BACK TO OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED POSTING!!  :-)  SO STAY TUNED!!

ON WITH THE SHOW!!

UP FIRST...
AS I STATED YESTERDAY, I HAVE SEEN THE SHREK MOVIES AND, UH, I DON'T REMEMBER THE CAT BEING BLUE!  DOESN'T BLUE SIGNIFY SADNESS?? 
THAT LITTLE PUSS AND BOOT'S WAS ANYTHING BUT SAD!!  NOW CATTITUDE HE HAD PLENTY OF, BUT, BLUE???  WHAT AM I MISSING HERE?
REGARDLESS OF WHERE SUZY OF OPI THOUGHT THAT THIS COLOR BLUE WOULD BE REMINISCENT OF A CAT OR ATTITUDE IS BEYOND ME, BUT I WILL SAY I DO LIKE THIS COLOR. 
 IM PRETTY SURE THERE ARE OTHER BABY BLUE'S THAT WERE CLOSE TO THIS AND IT'SS PROBABLY DUPEABLE, BUT I DID NOT HAVE ANY IN MY STASH SO I COULD NOT SHOW ANY COMPS. 
BUT I WILL SAY SUZY GOT IT RIGHT ON THIS SHADE - AT LEAST FOR ME ANYWAY!!  I WAS NOT ONE FOR WEARING BABY BLUES, BUT THIS ONE WORKS FOR ME.  IT WAS THIN LIKE THE OTHERS BUT IT WAS A PRETTY COLOR AND I ENJOYED IT!! (HENCE SO MANY PICS OF THIS ONE!!)
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO ENJOYED THESE MOVIES AND SAW PURPLE FOR THE DONKEY AND SAID 'WHAT????' OUT LOUD TO THEMSELVES???
PURPLE AND DONKEY'S KIND OF MAKES ME THINK OF BEING DRUNK AND SEEING GREEN ELEPHANTS!!
DONKEY, IN MY OPINION, SHOULD HAVE BEEN A GREIGE - BUT THEN AGAIN, SUZY DIDN'T CALL ME AND ASK WHAT COLOR SHE SHOULD HAVE MADE DONKEY - BUT I SURE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THAT FOCUS GROUP WAS THINKING WHEN THEY THOUGHT PURPLE WOULD WORK FOR DONKEY!!
COLORFUL, DONKEY WAS, BUT PURPLE HE WAS NOT!!
THAT BEING SAID, I DID ENJOY THE COLOR AND LIKE THE OTHERS THE POLISH WAS RATHER THIN - BUT WORKABLE.
REALLY?  WHAT PART OF YELLOW SCREAMS FIERCE TO YOU??  I MEAN REALLY!!
YELLOW IS NOT A VERY LARGE COLOR GROUP IN MY STASH - JUST BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS A COLOR THAT WOULD TURN ME INTO LOBSTER FINGERS - BUT THIS ONE DID NOT. 
I'VE ALWAYS HEARD THAT YELLOW WAS A HARD COLOR TO WORK WITH - AND AGAIN, THIS ONE WAS NOT.  EXCEPT FOR BEING LIKE ALL THE OTHERS IN THIS COLLECTION, IT WAS THIN, BUT WORKABLE. 
 I ENJOYED THIS COLOR BETTER THAN I THOUGHT I WOULD.  MAYBE FIONA SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE COLOR IN THIS COLLECTION THAT SUZY SHOULD HAVE HAD AS RED OR EVEN PINK - BUT YELLOW DOES NOT SCREAM FIERCE TO ME AND AS WE ALL KNOW - FIONA WAS VERY FIERCE WHEN DEFENDING HER LOVE AND ADMIRATION FOR HER MAN - SHREK!!

WELL, THAT DOES IT FOR ME TODAY!  OH, ALL OF THESE COLORS REQUIRED 4 COATS SINCE THEY WERE SO THIN AND EVERYTIME I TRIED TO EVEN IT OUT I ENDED UP WITH BALD SPOTS - BUT BY THE FOURTH COAT IT WAS OPAQUE.

SO, DID YOU GET ANY OF THESE?  WHERE THEY THIN FOR YOU TOO?  DID YOU ENJOY THEIR COLORS?

UNTIL NEXT TIME....HAPPY POLISHING!!
XOXOXOXO

DONT BE A GHOST....LEAVE ME A POST!!

    @RMC - Thanks!! It could have just my batch that was runny - so yours may be better. But even with 4 coats - still wasn't too bad.
