My First Five Below Haul

When I see all these fab Five Below polishes I get a tad salty since we don't have a Five Below in Colorado. I really didn't even know where they are popular around the country? Back in April, I went to visit one of the bestie's and she had a huge surprise because she knows I'm a lacquer loon!
We took a little drive down an Ohio road right into a Five Below where I carefully picked out my polishes. This is two coats of Fresh Paint Passion Fruit topped with one coat of Funky Fingers Saved by the Glitter. A bright little summer combo.
I'm a fan of the Five Below (let's forget about the random binge of sour smurfs and Japanese cookies I ate all while in her passenger seat). Do you have one of these stores in your spot of the U.S?

Orange You Getting in Lime?

Oh mylanta! I'm just the worst. I think at some point many of us get in a rut and just don't feel like doing something creative or digging through the polish pile sounds overwhelming. By the time I get home, change, make dinner, finish work it's pretty much bedtime and I'm dunzo. This sassy citrus mani has been sitting in the folders for a month or so.
I used two coats each of Abon's holos - Saturn, Starburst and Radiant as the base of this. I wanted colors that could represent the different fruits like limes, oranges and grapefruit. I free handed the colors next to one another and then stamped with Sinful Snow Me White from Bundle Monster 308.
A summer-worthy finished product if I do say so myself. Any tips for getting the nail art mojo back?
