Monday Blues : Baby Blue and Polka Dots

Hey mMonday gals!

Today I present the sad story of a cute manicure in less than flattering lighting...

It was an autumn day, quite sunny in general but oh so short. It was around sunset that I realized the daylight was being lost. As much as I tried, time seemed against me and as it so happened, artificial light was all that remained. The horror! The pain!

I never liked artificial light and I never liked using the flash. That's why I didn't. But as much as I tried to make it work, it didn't live up to its cute potential. I can assure you they're so cuddly in person!

So here we go, baby blue with an accent polka dot ring finger in... *dum dum duuuum* Lightbulb Light!
I can hear you covering your mouth. Yes...I said lightbulb!

 You can see the difference in lighting from one room to another, because yes, I tried 'em all.



























The true color is, as usual, somewhere in the middle.
I'm thinking about redoing this post in daylight, maybe just for the sake of comparison and a very long discussion about how I like my light. ( Actually that's a short discussion: from the sun )

But there are some other lovely ladies who went all blue today, and here they are:

Gosia from Life in Color!
Mihaela from Lacquerbuzz
Marisa from Polish Obsession
