Happy Sunday! How’s everyone’s weekend going? Any fun events! I’ve been hanging around the apartment all weekend, cleaning, re-organizing, and de-cluttering. Two rooms done so far, and it feels like success! I also did some nail polish hauling yesterday for some international friends, and bought myself a polish or two (but not too many – as I said, I’m trying to de-clutter! ha).
One of the polishes I picked up yesterday was China Glaze Ride the Waves, a somewhat neon blue from the new neon collection for summer 2012. Ride the Waves isn’t exactly neon, but it’s definitely vibrant, a bright, squishy jelly-like true blue polish. I saw this in the bottle and immediately thought MUST. HAVE. The photos below have 2 coats of Ride the Waves. As you can see, there’s still a little visible nail line; for my next mani it will definitely be 3 coats and I also need to wrap the tips, so the color doesn’t pull back at the tip as it does here.
Because it’s Sunday Funday, I also added a coat of Nubar White Polka Dots to jazz things up. All in all, I love the combination!

A great bright blue for summer, right? I am in love with Ride the Waves, and will probably be using this as a pedi color very soon. White Polka Dots was a little difficult to work with – the larger glitters had all settled to the bottom of my bottle, so were a little tricky to get on the nail – but I still love it, and can’t wait to play more with this simple yet pretty glitter soon!
