Wheel J14: Greenish Yellow and Yellowish Green Shimmers

Spring is on its way here. It was warm enough one day last week that I was able to open the windows and air out my studio. That inspired me to pull out my green shimmers box and pull a set of colors that cluster around the green/yellow line on the color wheel, shades that remind me of those first shoots that plants put out in spring. Of course, this being north Idaho, a few days later we had six inches of snow overnight, so true spring will be a while yet.

A closer look at the FAWN polish, which I am guessing I got at a beauty supply place but when and wehre I'm not sure.


  1. I know that many would consider these polishes "ugly", but I love them. They are so different, and I am a bit envious of the variety you have.

  2. These look nice, I like the bolder ones :-D


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
