Winter 2010

So it seems a blizzard it upon us here on the East Coast!   I have a couple of inches of accumulation already.  Just need to hunker down & stay warm while I work from home.

If you are being hit by this blizzard as well please be safe & stay warm!!  It is not worth going out unless it is extremely necessary!!

Yves Saint Laurent [ YSL ] Orange Flamboyant

So last week I ordered a few YSL La Laque Long-Lasting Nail Lacquer.  First one up is Orange Flamboyant.  The color totally reminds me of a 60's shade of orange.  In the daylight it lives up to it's name...flamboyant!  It is a gorgeous color!  May look red in the pictured but believe me it is orange. 

However, it chips easily!  I put on three coats but it is still not fully opaque. You can see the nail line and it is a little streaky.  Next time I would use a base color like white or nude to make it more opaque.  I love this color so much I will deal with the chip maintenance. long-lasting this polish is not.  :(

The pictures below were taken in the sunlight.
