ARTDECO 236 Deep Aqua

It is FRIDAY!!! Don't you love how I always state the obvious? I am only mildly excited because I know that I will probably spend much of the weekend in discomfort or pain. Pirates of the Caribbean is out though and I realllllly want to see it but I am doubting I will get that chance. I have an exciting idea for my nail art for Pirates though. I will not divulge too much info yet because I am not sure if I will be able to pull it off. I can't wait to show you though if it does work. Yes, cart is before the horse right now. lol.

I don't have much scheduled for the weekend that I know of yet. Tonight I am attempting to make some pumpkin cookies with a recipe one of the girls at MUA gave me. I never liked pumpkin before but tasted pumpkin bread that one of the volunteers brought to the kennel a couple weeks ago and it was DARN GOOD so now I want to try these cookies. Hopefully I can get my hands on that bread recipe too lol. Depending on my mouth I will probably volunteer at the kennel and I have tons of cleaning to do. FUN STUFF. Hopefully I will have time to update my spreadsheet too because I know it is only about 85% done. I of course filled my helmer already and now have to go through each drawer because I don't remember what was listed and what wasn't. Did I also mention that my helmer is full? I just got it and already need another one. I am not sure if that is good or bad.

So today's polish is ArtDeco # 236 Deep Aqua. ArtDeco is a German brand I believe. I saw this one on another blog as well but unfortunately didn't know what it said because it was written in German. The polish was so pretty though lol

Deep Aqua is on the right.

Now I have to tell you I did this mani in my car on the way to the dentist. I was stuck for a VERY LONG train and decided I had enough time to do my nails. It was that or do them in the parking lot before I went into the dentist office lol. I should have done them the night before but didn't have time. SO cleanup wasn't really great and I was in a car so application was interesting as well.

I used two coats for this mani but should have used three. I was worried about how long the train was going to go and I didn't want to run out of time so I stuck with two.

I wasn't really fond of the brush. The first coat was really uneven and the polish was on the thin side which made the brush more annoying. I like the color and the polish though.

It is really shiny and very pretty. If I had used thicker coats two might have been enough. I was trying to make as little a mess as possible and wasn't quite sure about the brush.

I am so happy with this polish though and saw a couple more that look intriguing from this brand.

That's all for now :)


  1. zomg, i want to see it layered with the loreal baby on the left!!

  2. lol that is exactly what I had planned at first. The one on the left is actually a Golden Rose. The print on the bottle is so light I can barely read it but I think it is #13, I have to check again though. Tomorrow I have Deep Aqua with gold crackle but I will get some pictures of the Golden Rose over it for you :)
