Wheel W1: Light Blue Shimmers

This week's Nail Wheel Wednesday got delayed because I got distracted by many things, including putting together new Helmers, which I do not intend to use for long term polish storage but rather as a more attractive and accessible temporary home for the bottles I'm weeding out than the cardboard boxes they've been in. When I've got my stash back to a more reasonable (to me) size, I'm sure I'll find something else to do with the excess Helmers.

I skipped ahead in the order of wheels because looking at these blues was a nice stress reliever, and I needed that.
