Monday Blues: High on Hope

Hey Everyone!!! Ok, I am back. We had a long week last week and I didn't get to use the computer at all to edit pictures and post. T finished his project though there was drama with it at the end. At least it is done and things are calmer on the school front. We went out of town for my cousin's baby shower for the weekend so that was crazy. A dear family friend passed away this past weekend so we have that going on too now. It is a bit crazy and things haven't exactly gone as planned. I do have today's Monday Blues post though. I also have a super exciting three day posting of Oopsie Daisies Sanderson Sisters Halloween Trio. I was going to start that today but things just didn't work out. My ear and throat also are hurting right now so I am hoping I am not getting sick. We will see. This post is going to have a ton of pictures.


Today's Monday Blues polish is Orly High Hopes from the 2013 Spring Hope and Freedom collection.

This is three coats of High Hopes. 

I would describe High Hopes as a perfect denim blue with pink/purple shimmer. 

This baby looks awesome. 

I thought I was having problems getting the shimmer on camera but when I looked at my pictures on the computer it showed up quite well.

I love this polish! The shimmer is so pretty and I love the shade of blue.

That's all for now :)


  1. Sorry I haven't commented in ages. I really love what you did with your nail shape! It's so original. I recently realized that most bloggers out there have square nails. It's not that I don't like them, it's just that I wanna see something different every once in a while. And I love this blue too! It's perfect for fall. I need more Orly in my life cause I don't have that many but love the ones I have!

    1. HI!!!! Yeah I have been super crazy and slacking on commenting too. I am lucky if I have time to post. I do always look though :)

      Thank you :) my nails were breaking so much when I had them squared off they sort of forced me to take this shape or make them nubs lol I wasn't sure about it but I am glad to see you like it :) I am hoping I can get the damage grown out without them breaking so much like this. We will see.

      Oh I tend to over look Orly a lot but they do make some great polishes!

  2. Oh yeah,that's definitely a perfect denim blue!


Wow, it has taken me a year to figure out how to write this here! I love comments! I read them all and try to respond as quickly as I can. Thank you for reading and commenting!
