NOTD: Monday March 23 2009

These pix don't really do this justice. If Strawberry Shortcake** wore nail polish, it would look like this. I applied two coats of Sally Hansen Sheer Strawberry and one coat of Sinful Colors White Diamond.

These pix make it look a lot more sheer than it was. The flash really bring that out. It was sheer, but not as sheer. It looked like pink shimmery icing or something. That's what made me think of Strawberry Shortcake, but it's a very princessy color, too.

Also, let me know what you think of the watermarks. I'm still trying to work out what I like. Do you think it covers up the colors too much?

**BTW, that is the new, revamped Strawberry Shortcake, up there. She's got a makeover last year. And it's not just looks:
Strawberry Shortcake was having an identity crisis. The “it” doll and cartoon star of the 1980s was just not connecting with modern girls. Too candy-obsessed. Too ditzy. Too fond of wearing bloomers.So her owner, American Greetings Properties, worked for a year on what it calls a “fruit-forward” makeover. Strawberry Shortcake, part of a line of scented dolls, now prefers fresh fruit to gumdrops, appears to wear just a dab of lipstick (but no rouge), and spends her time chatting on a cellphone instead of brushing her calico cat, Custard.

Next thing you know she'll be teaming up with a high-end cosmetics company. (See the MAC Hello Kitty Collection, Two-Faced Smurfette Collection, and Barbie. Wooo, Barbie is a makeup slut. But, no surprises there. Nor complaints. Just sayin'.) They are also revamping the CareBears to give them longer lashes and less belly fat. WTF. See Fictional Stars Get 21st Century Facelift.

I think the watermark could be improved. try a white watermark that's very sheer with no outline.

I agree with Tiffany (above).
