Ich bin krank.

I'm pretty sure that's German for "I am sick." Which is very true. You know you're really sick when you don't even feel like painting your nails for over a week. (Scary thought, ain't it?) I'm getting better, but it's slow going. This Color Club polish is 904 Revealed. Dumb name. Again.

It's orangey-peach. Bit of pink too.

If you look at the bottle when I am holding it, there's some pink shimmer going on. However, on my nails, there was nothing. (And I looked real hard too.) I really like this color, especially in sunlight. Problem: application was Nasty with a capital N. Freaking thing took four coats because it kept streaking on me. And it dried lumpy/chalky, like an eggshell or something. Whatever, all I know is that I did not like applying this polish. Boo on you.

Anyway, because I was sick, I didn't do a design for three days. Then I finally cranked this out:

Pretty simple. Scotch tape made it a snap. I got this design from two bloggers that I follow:

Choe's Nails
Forever The Ugly Duckling

(Can you tell I have no original ideas? Always stealing from others; what a shame. . .) But hey, they have nice ideas! Why not copy them? I thank the kind ladies for giving me the design aid.

Hm, this Alter Ego set has one more polish to go. Well. . .two, but one of them is a "Milky White Basecoat," so I'm going to ignore it.


  1. You're right with the german phrase ;) And I know the feeling when you are so sick you don't wanna pain your nails.. It's very scary!

    I really like this mani :) GREAT combo of colors and nice and simple but yet very sophisticated!

    Get well soon!

  2. hope you're feeling better! :( i kinda like this color, i think i have a thing for nudes now. :)
