Avon Luxe Lavender

The whale watch was terrible.  It was windy, cold and the seas were super rough.  We only saw a few whales and most were from a distance.  I will include one small pic at the end.  The best shot I got, which is pathetic.  The boat was so rocky, most of the ship was throwing up into brown paper bags (they supply), including my boyfriend.  He said guys don't take Bonine (apparently it is more cool to throw up in public).

I have my ipad here but I can't do any picture stuff with that so I also brought my old netbook which is so slow.  Picture editing is going to be a project and I don't want to spend a ton of time on that.  I have two nail challenges coming up and I really want to get some designs done before I leave here.  Thankfully, I downloaded some stuff I had already done before I came. 

A friend of mine sells Avon.  I used to buy their polish but then branched out to a variety of different brands.  Recently I purchased some from their newest collection.  Most of you know, I love experimenting with different brands but I am driven mainly by color.  All of my polish is sorted by color.  And that makes it easier to see what colors I am drawn to......green.  Weird.  I never new I cared for it.  But most tend to lean towards teal, turquoise, etc.  Today, I have for you....purple.  Avon Luxe Lavender that is, with white daisies and a little bling!!!


Have not used Avon in years but I love how it applied.  Smooth, even and great coverage in two coats.  Also.....inexpensive. it will be great for various nail designs. 

So, today it is POURING rain outside.  Not much to do.  We are renting the same house for the third time.  If anyone is looking to go to Cape Cod, I can recommend it.  Three bedrooms and, most importantly, a big fenced in yard for my dogs.  They do take pets. :)

Yes, it is a whale.  In the center.  If you squint, you can see it.

  6. My recent winter whale watching experience was exactly the same. The ocean was very rough and was much like a roller coaster ride. We saw few gray whales but hardly could make out their shapes in that water. I came back with zero pics which is very disappointing for me. My husband and me were the only ones on the boat who dint throw up but we were very sick and I had terrible headache.

    On to nail polish, this color is very pretty. I have never tried Avon before, but this polish looks quite smooth.

  7. I don't think I've used anything Avon since I was like 9 and my mom used Skin So Soft as bug repellent haha. That is a really nice springy color though and those little rhinestones are so perfect! Sorry whale watching wasn't awesome, I've never been so I have no puke stories to share lol.
