Iridescent or Duo chrome?

Not Like the Movies by OPI. This is picture heavy post. My daughter gifted this polish to me awhile ago. I am not sure if this is a Duo or an iridescent or even what the exact difference is. I am thinking Duo chrome. I can't seem to stop playing my hands in different lights. These pictures do not capture all the different ways this polish can look. Also note that this is a sheer polish with glitter. I think that is why I am confused. These are all the same hand with the same polish on in each picture.

right hand

Rare look at my right hand. I am right handed so my nails on this hand rarely look good but I liked them today. The thing I like about crackle is for me it hides imperfections and I can never seem to apply polish to my right hand as well as I can to my left. This is China Glaze Latticed Lilac over Wet n Wild Jade. And yes these nails need to see a file, yadda , yadda but it is an on going battle I have with this hand. The last picture is my left thumb I added this for myself because it displays the bottle the best for my own reference.

Okay, I made this back around the 4th of July. I got this recipe from Kitschy Suburbia  .  Love her site she has some lovely nail art and frequently posts easy recipes to whip up. Megan has a great sense of humor and I encourage you if you have not visited her site to do so. Here are some pics of the yummy Nutella Mug Cake I made using the recipe posted on Kitschy Suburbia . Megan's title for her post is, "Silence That Sweet Tooth" and date of the post June 21, 2011. This is a perfect dessert for me because the serving is not very large. It is just my hubby and I now and he can't have desserts so this satisfies my need for something sweet and doesn't leave something tempting around the house for very long. This was so good!

Cracked Medallion

So I shared a facebook post with my hubby that Colette had posted about the China Glaze Crackle and the next day when I went to sit at my pc there were 3 new polishes for me. Love my Hubby! He bought me China Glaze Cracked Medallion, Latticed Lilac and Platinum Pieces. The following pictures are OPI Thank You Very Muchness with Cracked Medallion on top. This is so sparkly and metallic two of  my favorite things. Tossed up a picture of Bailey also.

More froggie pictures

I posted the previous pictures at night these are pictures I took during the day. At first I wasn't really liking this mani but I must say it is growing on me. Hubby likes it also. I added pictures of the polish I used also. This was easy to do using polish and dotting tools. I posted so many pictures to remember this because I think I might do this again sometime.

Woodland Park Zoo

My son in law took a picture of a frog at the zoo and I love the colors of this frog. Deadly frog btw.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Inspirational Quote just because I felt like one today:

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

Sinful Marble for 4rth

I did a marble last year for 4rth and decided to do it again. This year I used all Sinful Colors. I picked up 3 bottles for buy two get one free @ 1.99 each. Ruby Ruby, Snow me White and Hot Spot. Why the blue is called Hot Spot is beyond me. For myself I am making a note to drop my bullseye white, red, white, blue. Didn't do the pinkie that way but did rest in that order. Have a Happy Fourth of July!
