Hi everyone! Sorry for being a little MIA lately. I've had so much going on between my birthday, my nephew being born and job interviews, I haven't had a chance to just sit down and blog! So tonight, I wanted to show you what I wore on my nails for my birthday!

Now, I'm usually not one for darker colors since I feel like they're a little unforgiving if you mess up and I feel like dark colors kind of just wash out my already pale skin but I really loved Maybelline Color Show Sapphire Siren! It was a lot less stark navy than I thought it would be. And since I had to have sparkle for my birthday, I decided to do an odd combo and layed Lynnderella Glass Houses over it! 

PS. This post is pretty picture heavy!

Maybelline Color Show Sapphire Siren - a navy creme.
Lynnderella Glass Houses - copper and turquoise hexes in a clear base.

Macro of Glass Houses.

Sapphire Siren went on smoothly and opaque in two coats. I added two coats of Glass Houses on top!

I really like this combo! I never expected navy and orange to look so awesome together!

I have no idea why my middle finger looks like it smooshed in. I promise it wasn't!

Where to buy: Lynnderella - eBay - prices vary and Maybelline Color Show Sapphire Siren - Walmart and drugstores - $2.97.

I keep repeating myself but I love this color combo together! Sapphire Siren really picks up on the turquoise glitters hidden in Glass Houses! I know this might be silly, but I'd like to address that I know a lot of people have mixed feelings on Lynnderella's polishes. Personally, I think they're gorgeous and cherish the ones I have but I understand others don't. Alrighty. Back to the polish. What do you think about this color combo?
