Essie Turquoise & Caicos/SH Hidden Treasure. AND TALL SHIPS!

Hey everyone. I hope your Saturday is off to a better start then mine! Last night I was the last person to leave the yacht club. I left at 10:30 when the bartender closed it. I don't know why I stayed so late.. nobody I knew was there. I really didn't want to go home though. And I'm really going to miss that place when I move. I guess I just felt like being there. Anyways, when I went to leave my car wouldn't start. Battery needs replaced. Luckily I was able to get ahold of a friend to pick me up. It was the friend whose family I just spent the last week house/dog/cat/ferret sitting for. Her stepdad is going to help me with my car tonight so yay. Hopefully it gets fixed tonight. Who knows. Ew, and tonight I work at 9pm until 5:30 tomorrow morning. YUCK. Done ranting now!

Today I have a fabulous layering combo to share with you all. Or at least I think it is fabulous. Last Friday I didn't feel like being at home, so I took some nail polish and headed down to the harbor. I decided to do my nails on my family's boat. It was very nice and the polish combo made me think of mermaids so it fit! HAH.

Am I the only one who thinks of mermaids when looking at this? Well, I know I'm not since my mom said the same thing.. but anybody else agree??

First I used Essie Turquoise & Caicos. I believe I used 2 coats. I might be wrong. Maybe it was 3. Who knows. Then I added 1 coat of Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure over that. I absolutely loved it and was really sad when it started chipping. I'll probably end up wearing this combo again soon because I absolutely love it.

OH! Just remembered I wanted to share a couple other pictures with you all. Right now the tall ships the Lady Washington and the Hawaiian Chieftain are in Bellingham. They've been here for a couple weeks and are leaving in a day or so. They've come out the last couple Wednesday nights when we were finishing races and I got a few pictures.

Here is the Lady Washington. Did you know that Lady Washington was in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie as the Interceptor? Yeah.

And this is the Hawaiian Chieftain.

I have more pictures but I won't spam you all. I just get so excited each summer when the tall ships come. I love seeing them.

This is one of my favorite combos! T&C is one of my alltime favorite summer polishes! I might actually put this combo on my nails tonight :) I didn't like SH HT when I first got it, but then I discovered how good it looked over pastels and now I love it! I recently put it over Essie Marshmallow and it looked SO pretty, but I ended up denting it all up and took it off right away :/ haha
