Wheel W14: Orange Red Cremes

Okay, so this wasn't my best summer for blogging. My most recent absence was due to a long cross country road trip that seemed like a better idea when we planned it than when the time came to do it, thanks to the Delta variant running rampant through many states. Still, we went, adjusting our plans to see fewer people and do fewer things (long restaurant meals catching up with friends were out, long meals outside with vaccinated friends getting bit up by mosquitos in Michigan were in). Given how poorly Idaho is doing with COVID-19, it's quite possible we were safer on the road than at home, at least when we were in states with fewer Trump cultists in them by volume. I didn't stop in as many stores as I would have pre-pandemic, but will have a display post up later this month with polishes I did see. I'm back today with a wheel I painted before I left, full of orange cremes that mostly lean red (or maybe red cremes that lean orange? it's hard to say sometimes). A few have non-shiny finishes, but that's okay; if I tried to be that picky about matching finishes on wheels, I'd never complete this project. Even trying to not be too picky, I sometimes wonder if I will ever get through all the cremes I still need to get on wheels (much less the shimmers and glitters and other finishes). I know it would go faster if I'd go on a no buy, but that's super hard for me.
