Hobby Polish Bloggers - Summer Love



Ah, summer lovin'.  I remember one summer I spent in Mexico with my extended family.  I was in High School, and I met a boy that would become my first real boyfriend.

He was so sweet, just like this Sinful Colors Genteel, a pretty pink with a little shimmer.

At first, I was swept off my feet - so happy that I no longer needed to eat because I was no longer hungry; so giddy that I no longer needed to sleep.

It was hard to leave him and go home, but between the distance and the two-week intervals between our letters (real letters! No e-mail then.) our romance quickly cooled, and then ended.

So, I decided to do a French tip in an ombre, starting with a red hot holo, and cooling to heartbroken black.

Then I used a dotting tool to make hearts in the corresponding colors.

He was only my first boyfriend, and even though it was sad, I did *sniff* learn to love again.

In order of red hot to heartbroken, the bottle shot:  Sinful Colors Genteel (base color) Hits Ares, Bondi Fuschia-istic, Zoya Pepper, Zoya Paris, and OPI Black Onyx.
