Swatch: Catch the Bouquet

Hello, fabulous readers! I was in the library today sitting at one of the community computers finishing some work that has to be done before tomorrow and I leave for the Bon Jovi concert (PS. any ideas for Bon Jovi-esque nails fitting for a concert? I have absolutely none and it's tomorrow!) and the girl sitting at the computer next to me must have been working on a group project with her 5 friends. Well, all the sudden I hear a comment "Put your ring away" and her hand retract from the screen. She responded "I didn't even mean to do that..." and I looked closer at her hand....yes, I'm sure you guessed it....an engagement ring was proudly displayed on her left hand. Of course, with my being a girl and all I clocked the ring sneakily a couple times. It was so shiny. Then I was looking through the polishes I haven't swatched for you guys yet and I noticed Orly Catch the Bouquet. Fitting after such a story, no?

It was super annoying to catch with my camera (partially because my camera is horrendous and partially because I am horrendous at photography) but all in all I think you can get an idea of the color. As part of the Orly Classic collection this polish is exactly what I would expect...classic. A light pink shimmer with almost a hint of purple iridescent-ness going on. It is really pretty and makes me feel like watching the movie Pretty In Pink. Anyone else know of a polish they own that makes them want to watch a movie? I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Ok, time to go. I have to teach a Spanish class at the local public library tonight. And when I say "teach" I mean awkwardly stand in the corner hoping no one asks me a question. My Spanish isn't so good. I've only been studying it for 2 years. Wish me luck fellow polishers!

And, on a quick side note, wahooooooo 25 followers!! Wow! I thought I would never break 15 but....20?! WOW! Thank you thank you thank you!
