Rainbow Favorites Challenge - Blue!

Today is "Blue" day for the Rainbow Favorites Challenge.  Again, I love LOTS of blues - but I knew right away that I would have to choose Butter London Lady Muck as my all time favorite.  This challenge is awesome because I have an excuse to use colors that I have already swatched on my blog.  I did come up with "Friday Favorites with a Flair" just for that reason.  I found myself choosing colors I didn't already have on my blog and I missed wearing my favorites.
This polish may not be an exciting electric blue or a sparkly blue glitter - but the reason this is my favorite is because it's a blue without being BLUE.  I feel okay being 35 and wearing this.  I will wear any color, but at times I feel a tad self conscious when I see certain people looking at my nails.  I wonder if they are thinking "how old are you again??"  But this blue is more of a greyish blue and the even awesomer (word??) part is the itsy bitsy silvery shimmer.  The application is a dream and it doesn't hurt that it's a "cool" brand:)  There is something about wearing a high end brand that makes me feel a bit more special.  

I enjoyed watching everyone else post their favorite blue...take a look!

  2. Yes!!! Seeing a BL bottle makes me happy. :D Again, lovely color on you. :) I have the and feelings regarding my age and what I put on my nails. It's why I have an aversion to art on my own hands. If I didn't enjoy blogging so much I'd be on a steady diet of OPI Ballet , red, and black. My friends and coworkers still think I'm out there in my color choices. If they only knew. ;)

    1. So do your friends and co-workers know you have a blog? Mine don't. The only people that know are my husband and kids and I'd like to keep it that way. I'm waiting for someone I know to stumble upon my blog...not sure what I'll say. I have a friend at work that is starting to get into nail polish and sometimes I bring up google images to show her swatches and when I am logged in, it says "you" under some of mine....I quickly scroll down so she doesn't notice!

    2. They all know! I post my links to my facebook. Nobody's into it like I am, but they at worst don't care and at best are curious and ask me questions about nail care, or compliment my color of the day. The whole thing is totally silly and inane, but it's a hobby, and it's my hobby, and the people in my life seem to respect that. ;) My friends are few but good and my coworkers are cool, so it's all good. I'm unapologetically odd, I suppose. ;)
