Tropical Storm NOTD!

I survived Tropical Storm Irene very well, I know you were all thinking of me and other East Coast bloggers! My house had no damage, just a lot of tree branches down in my yard and loads of debris to clean up. I spent a lot of yesterday cleaning up and still have loads to do. I know you're all dying to know what mani I sported during the tropical storm, so here it is!! I wore Essie Turquoise and Caicos, with Nubar 2010 on top.

This is three coats of Essie Turquoise and Caicos. It still has some VNL, this polish is not quite as opaque as I would like. It is a very beautiful pale watery blue-green though. I love the color! I did two coats of Nubar 2010 on top to add some zing!

This mani was beautiful in person. It looks nice in the photos, but it was much prettier in person. I needed something pretty to get me through Irene, I was really worried about trees coming down on our house.

I'll leave you with a picture I took of a street near my house. This street is right on the water and has flooded before. Yes, those are two guys kayaking in the street. There was quite a lot of street kayaking going on. The non-amusing part is that many of the houses on the left side of this picture were completely destroyed and have to be knocked down. Very sad for the people that live here.

I survived Hurricane Irene as well here in Delaware!

Love Turquoise & Caicos by Essie. Got it in March and have worn is several times since, which is rare since I always am buying new polish. Love the nubar on top too :)

Thank you Carolina! Thanks for stopping by!

Cristina- I agree, Turquoise and Caicos is really nice, I'll be wearing it again soon!

Thanks Lisa! Flakies would look great on any pale blue-green creme!

Nailderella- definitely give it a try! It's even prettier in person!

Kaydi- Nubar 2010 is a fav of mine as well, and Turquoise and Caicos might be getting there too!

Peace, Love & Polish- I'm glad you made it through Irene! Did it hit Delaware badly?
