Bluey Bluey Blue

My Orly “Sweet Peacock” and Deborah Lippmann “Across the Universe” arrived yesterday. Ohmygod. I love blue so much. I would buy all of the blues if I could.

Sweet Peacock is as pretty as I hoped it would be. I nearly wept with joy when I finally saw it in person. The foil formula covered almost perfectly in one coat, but I did a second coat to make up for the “almost.”

Across the Universe was a darker jelly than I anticipated. I feel like my results are very dark, possibly because I layered it over the sweet Peacock. It may not need a base at all, but I just assumed it did.

The Hot Wheels is called “I don’t carry Hot Wheels cars in my laptop bag because I’m not a crazy person, although I did briefly consider it.”

I crochet. I crochet a lot. My speciality is amigurumi dolls based on pop culture entertainment, such as LOST, Star Trek, Mad Men and Firefly. I also crochet beanie hats with food items on them such as pancakes, sushi, burgers, spaghetti, or whatever sounds hat-worthy. Visit me at or
