NOTD: 14 November 2011

Okay, so I actually wore this for Homecoming back on October 22nd, but I'm just a bit behind in my personal queue of postings.  I'm attempting to catch up with at least 2 posts a day and (hopefully) no more than 1 press release per day.  I know it takes me a lot longer to review collections since I only post one color per blog posting, but this way I appreciate and review each color individually.  My organizational brain won't let me do it any other way.

So I am a graduate of Texas A&M University - Kingsville, a sister school of the big Texas A&M University in College Station.  Our colors are blue and gold and I've tried to find the right combination to wear for football games but always seem to fall short.

Imagine my excitement when I realized that the CND 2011 The Look had the perfect blue and gold for my own manicure!

On the left is CND colour in Midnight Sapphire and on the right is CND effects in 24 K Sparkle.  I used a base coat of CND Stickey, 1 coat of Midnight Sapphire, 2 coats of 24 K Sparkle and a top of CND Air Dry.

The sun picture doesn't really convince me that this manicure was the best because the sun hits the effect too strongly.

In the shade however, I'm automatically in love.

Another shade, this time holding CND effects in 24 K Sparkle.  Lovely color!

Indoors with the flash and you can see again that big bling of the effects, but it's really a beautiful combination. I can't wait to wear it all next year for the football games (I'm from a football family), and other campus events that I may attend in the future.

CND is available for $9 per colour, and $11 per effect and you can find locations to buy here.

TransDesign and Head2ToeBeauty has the colours for $4.50 and effects for $5.50.
