Twinsie Tuesday: Best Deal

24 Jul

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today is a state holiday where I live, so we’re celebrating with a family BBQ and fireworks.  I’m hoping we won’t get rained on like we did last year, but the forecast isn’t very promising.  Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Today’s theme is our best deal (excluding gifts, swaps and giveaway winnings).  I had a hard time coming up with a polish for this one.  I’m not one to go deal shopping for anything.  If I want it, I’m generally willing to pay the asking price.  I really had to rack my brain.  Then I remembered that several months back, I paid 1¢ for two polishes.  Julep was having one of their 1¢ introductory Maven Box deals.  How can you pass up a deal like that.  It really was 1¢.  No extra surprise charges.

I’ve already shown you both of the polishes I got in that box, so I had to do something fun with one of them.  Julep Selena is a fantastic sort of chartreuse/olive green creme.  I love it!

Here, I’ve paired it with Nicole by OPI Overwhelmed.  This is a raisin colored purple shimmer.  I’ve had this polish for eons!  Really.  I think I may have stolen it from my sister when we were teenagers.  Now, I’m not that old, but I will say that I’ve been out of high school for more than a decade.

Because Overwhelmed is so old, it was a bit thick and sticky and difficult to work with.  I didn’t bother adding any thinner to it, but probably should have.  You can see it bubbled a bit.  A gorgeous color, nonetheless.

I thought these two colors complimented each other really well, so I decided to do some color blocking.  My ring finger is my favorite.
