Sunday Nails

I bought this polish the other day and used it today for the first time. I kind of love it! It's called Elephant Walk. To me it reminds me of the color of a chalkboard. Kind of a greenish grey. It's funny because before I grew out my fingernails I only ever used to paint my toenails and I love reds and pinks for my toes. When I started painting my fingernails I tried reds and pinks and I don't really like it at all. I'm much more drawn to blues and greens and darker colors for my fingers. I actually painted my fingernails pink this afternoon and took it all off and started over with this green color. It feels more like me.

Just for fun I sponged some gold sparkle onto the tips. I like doing that, as you can probably tell. Solid color nails are boring. I like something unexpected to brighten them up a bit.

I tried to take pictures and had a hard time accurately capturing the color and the sparkle. Taking pictures of your fingernails is super tricky. I'm left handed so generally my right hand turns out slightly better because I have more control when I paint with my left hand. So I prefer to take a picture of my right hand, but usually my right hand is the one that controls that camera when I'm taking pictures and but you can't operate the camera and take a picture of your hand at the same time. I have to contort on all sorts of weird ways to take them with my left hand. I could just take a picture of my left hand I suppose, but where's the fun in that? :)

Anyway, here are the photos. The first picture was technically a better photo but didn't capture the sparkle very well. The second one isn't so great but you can see the sparkly tips. You get the idea.
