2 – OPI Breathe Life [thanks to hollycoffeebean for this one]

3 – OPI Maliblue [has just a tad more yellowgreen color shift than Breathe Life, but maybe it’s an old and yellowed mislabeled Breathe Life.  It arrived to me unlabeled and with a China Glaze skinny brush!]

Best $0.99 ever spent… these are discontinued and went on clearance some time ago.

Without a doubt, the best $2.80 ever spent!

I had to sit on my hands not to edit out those magenta specks…

Lots of ladies complained re the lollipop bottles, but I thought them very Japanese [though made in China] and therefore cool, since I’d seen these bottles on Japanese blogs long ago, filled with other brands’ varnishes… the Bejeweled collection, right, has a giant brush and very thick formula in comparison to Toppings, left.

H&M Norwegian Sky was a shocker once applied to the nail wheel… opaque minty greenblue, in one coat!  In the bottle, it is a whited out sky blue with turquoise to pink color shifting shimmer.

Here we are at fall equinox and I’ve just gotten round to revisiting the multichrome comparison libraries, my initial raison d’etre for inaugurating blueberry milk tea. 😉

I’ve been sitting on this light blue volume for more than a year, as I was waiting on Misa Decadent Drifter, Misslyn Dragonfly, Orly Angel Rain and SpaRitual It’s Raining Men.  Although each of those varnishes fell through for different reasons, I unwittingly ended up acquiring others in their places.

This color family is dedicated to my son BB, who learned to surf this past summer and still can’t get used to the idea that another school year has begun.  For you, mi’jo, this and the ensuing farewell-to-last-season series of posts I shall deem “Endless Summer” (since I’m so tardy to the party, always).
