NOTD : Retro Chic

I wanted to try something different....

As I've said before, I am terribly obsessed with grey nail polish. I was about to re-paint them my current favorite, Pure Ice Kiss Me Here, but at the same time I wanted to try out another one of my new polishes from L.A. Girl. Who says I can't do both at once?



For a splash of color, I painted my index + ring fingers L.A Girl Vinyl Record. No surprise here why I bought this one (The name! The name!!!). This is from their current Disco Brites collection, where the polish is supposed to glow under blacklight/UV lighting. I'm not 12 anymore, so I don't own a blacklight. I'll just take their word for it. This is a wonderful shade, it's a shame I couldn't capture it's true color on camera. It shows up very blue in the photo, but it has much more green in it- more like a bright teal. The formula was a breeze to work with. It was totally opaque with one coat, but just out of habit, I did two. I picked mine up from Cherry Culture, but you can also order right from L.A. Girl's website.

The shades together remind me of something retro. When I was younger, I actually wanted to paint my room these exact colors. This is the palette I wanted to go off of:

(I made this over at ColourLovers,
if you've never been to this site before, check it out- it's so much fun!!!)

I hope you all are having a fabulous week so far!! I had to make a trip to the eye doctor today to test out my peepers and get my eyes dilated (Not fun!!!). The good/bad news is, I need glasses. I pick them up on Friday. But never fear! For I have picked out some stellar looking glasses (Some cute, simple Coach frames)!! I don't know about you, but glasses are pretty sexy (Especially on guys, I have a thing for 'em). Any of you wonderful readers wear specs?

I totally understand what you mean about the eyes being dilated, I just went through the 'joy' of that last week, it was so hard to drive home!

And I absolutely love these colors! Good choices : )
