Orly Royal Navy

The theme this week on the nail board is Forgotten Loves, polishes that we love but haven't worn in a few months. The first one that popped to mind for me was Orly Royal Navy.

Royal Navy is a royal blue jelly that is packed with aqua shimmer. It tends to settle to the bottom of the bottle, so when I know I'm going to be wearing it, I turn it upside down for a couple of hours to let the shimmer mix back into the polish.

I've mentioned before that my husband has a mutant power where he can pick out the polishes that I should get, even when I'm not that excited about them at first. This is the first polish he ever did that with.

I picked it up and put it back in the rack and he basically went, "ARE YOU CRAZY?" and pulled it back out of the rack. ^_^ I love my husband for many reasons, but my heart just soared that day.

Interesting aside, you'll probably notice that my pictures look dramatically different with this post. I added some more lights about a week ago, and I realized that instead of making my pictures look better, the new lights made them look worse. o.O

I asked for some advice on the nail board today, and some lovely ladies helped me out. (Shout out of thanks to Love8Brain, rachtotheizzo, JabberwockJess, steffels, ch3ryl89, shellly - as well as KtB for moral support!). They taught me how to use my camera (duh) and now I am actually happy with the photos on this blog. 

It never ceases to amaze me how helpful and generous and just plain awesome this community can be. Thank you, ladies. You saved my sanity today! =)

And, as always, thanks for stopping by!
