Traveling Turtle

Hey loves!  I had this really interesting brown/green polish from OPI that I wanted to work with today and that color doesn't always lean towards desirable imagery, especially when the name of the polish is Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window from the Touring America collection.  I like interesting and intriguing shades of polish that ride the line between pretty/ugly and awkward/fashionable.  I decided to take on the challenge with this one.  I did think it would be the perfect backdrop for a little baby turtle.  Here's what I came up with:

I wanted to feature the shell pattern and then place the little guy across two nails.  I thought this turned out really fun and playful- and totally transformed my original judgement of this shade of polish.  Here is Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window at two coats on its own:

What do you think- would you rock this polish? Or pass it up?  Glad you stopped by today and I'll see you back tomorrow!

Over and out.


  1. WOW! That is freaking adorable!!

  2. What is color call that the turtle is??? btw I LOVE this!

    1. Thanks ladies! Actually all the paints are acrylics except for the base polish that I mentioned. If you want to pick up the acrylic it is the color "lime green" from the brand Ceramcoat and I think I found it at Walmart for under 50 cents. But if you're looking for a polish that shade, I'd suggest China Glaze Entourage, Sinful Shine In the Limelight, or Pure Ice Starry Night.
