China Glaze Cowgirl Up

I know that it has been some time since the Rodeo Diva collection came out, but I just recently got this polish.  I really like it. 

No, I am not that going to go out with my nails looking like this!  I do usually take my pics before doing any cleanup. LOL

Wet n Wild Color Icon Trio: I Got Good Jeans


This is the combo that I am wearing this morning.  It really looks pretty in the palette and scared me so much when I put it on.  But, if you know me, you know that I have an aversion to blues.  Swatch, look and review after the break!
