NOTW: Living in Lilac


The polish that I've been wearing on and off recently is called "Lilac" and I can honestly say that I'm loving it--and living in it.

The first color that I featured in my free set of ELF nail polishes was called "Innocent" and I gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars. You can see it here. I believe most of you really liked it.

As with the previous ELF polish Lilac is also a bit on the light side--must be a recurring theme. But it is a strong enough color to still stand out even when it's light and airy.

(And thanks for the wonderful comments on my Modeling Skirts post. That was Part 1 of 4 in the Model Pose series. Part 2 to come shortly)

With and without flash

2 full coats and a Sally Hansen shiny top coat.

I think 2 coats looks very nice with this color, but a 3rd coat wouldn't hurt.
Overall, I give this 4.5 out of 5 stars. I'll probably end up repeating it because I love it.

Oh, and I recently won a giveaway! Can you believe it? It was Keisha's fab sunglasses giveaway hosted by Sunglass Warehouse.

And I just got a new camera! yay! Now I can finally do a makeup/fotd post. The other camera (aka the camera from my phone) just wasn't cutting it.
