Dragonfly Necklace

One of my favorite things about summer is getting to see the dragonflies. This is the perfect time of the year as they are everywhere in my part of the world. I got this necklace for my birthday from my mom and dad as they know how much I love dragonflies. This murano glass inspired pendant is from the J Francis collection and is a bit over an inch high and wide. It is a fun piece of jewelry to wear as animal/insect pieces so often are. I may have to wear this in the end of winter when I have spring fever and need a bit of fun. :)

Mossy Britches

This is Mossy Britches by Nina Ultra Pro. I saw this polish on another blog and couldn't decide if it was really for me or not. I loved the color but would I like it on me? Would anybody else? My mom happened to pick this up not knowing I was debating it. I saw it on her and jumped all over it. Who, what, when, where, why, LOL? So I immediatley borrowed and swatched it. I LOVE it and so did others. Big Smiles there. She picked it up at Sally Beauty and I think I will too.

This is two coats with no top coat. I think I should have used a top coat, not because it chips or anything like that but the gold in it would come out better. I have had it on for about a week and I have only suffered a bit of tip wear, not bad at all. I will say that the formula left me a bit skeptical. I can't say why really it just didn't feel right, but when it was dry all the septiscism was all but gone.
