Twinsie Tuesday: Food and Drink

So yeah, I kinda disappeared this week, didn't I? With being sick and breaking nails and that cut on my finger and a great, big pile of general malaise ("General Malaise...") I just wasn't feeling it these last few days..."it" being anything much of anything. Time to kick myself back into the swing, though, because it's Tuesday!

This week's theme is food and drink, and dang, did I wanna do something really, really cute. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get my hands on the OPI Coca-Cola polishes yet, and my nail art efforts ended in failure and recriminations. But! Just before the breakage, I swatched Barielle Banana Drop, and hey, banana is food!

Barielle Banana Drop swatch

This is three coats of Barielle Banana Drop, from the same Sweet Treats collection as Orange Parfait. I did need all three to get things all even and smooth, but that's pretty much par for the course with yellows, isn't it? I definitely like the colour! It's light and fluffy, like a baby chick (or possibly, like a banana), bright but soft and all kinds of lemony cream.

Really a cute yellow, and even if it's a bit of a cheat for this week's theme, I'm gonna count it. Did some non-food nail art on top after I took these pics, which I'll probably have up tomorrow. This week doesn't look to be much better than last (not really sick anymore, but the malaise is all malaisier), but I do have some pics in my folder to post. Hopefully I can get those up these next few days and start feeling in the swing of things again. In the meantime, I'm really happy to welcome our newest Twinsie, Lisa!
