SH Garnet Lapis Prism, worthy of a weeks wear

Hi Kids! Long time no post...10 days to be exact- with good reason(s). I'll get into that after nail polish stuff.
My NOTW has been 2 coats of Sally Hansen Garnet Lapis Prism over 1 coat Pure Ice All Night Long.
Prepare yourself for lots of pictures...Garnet Lapis is a gorgeous, multi-chrome chameleon.
There is so much more I want to say about this polish, but am unable to because Valium is making my normally inarticulate mind even more confounded where words are concerned. Not even sure if that last sentence makes any sense.
I can, however, post my pictures without fear of sounding stupid....
Garnet Lapis has many facets. You can check it closer by clicking the pictures to make em bigger...
Most pictures taken after a week of wear;






















So, that's it- Garnet Lapis, a great polish to wear and be mesmerized by while sitting in the dentists chair for 7 out of 10 days.
It's also been a great "pick-me-up" after my chest X-ray confirmed my suspicion that I have Emphysema...one of my rewards from smoking...Which, by the way- for those of you who smoke- IS NOT REVERSIBLE.
I'm not writing this for pity- I knew what the risks were.  That said, please do not comment with "I'm sorry"-that will offend me greatly.

WOW! I love how you managed to get both of the colors on the same photo (last one). My nails are too flat for this kind of polish. They just don't look duochrome-y.

Sally Hansen needs to re-release this ASAP!

OMG this is gorgeous. Love it on you. What kind of dental work did you have done? I hate the dentist. My face feels like crap since I had a tooth extracted. At least I didnt look like a potato this time LOL

Hiya! The two first pictures resemble a lot the limited edition Chameleon colour of Seat Alhambra, Volkswagen Sharan and Ford Galaxy. As I was thrilled with this colour in on the cars, the more thrilled I am with in on the nails ;) Great job!

That is gorgeous! I don't know how severe emphysema is, but I hope it's something that can be dealt with (though I know it can't be "cured").

This polish looks beautiful on you.  I forsee a huge surge of ebay searches on this.  I hope the dentist was able to help you :/ xoxoxo

This is a great color!!  I picked up one from this line at the Dollar Tree this weekend. :)

amazing color :)  For smoking, I stopped for 6 years but when I smoked, I told myself "I know maybe one day I'll be ill but it's so good ........."

I hope there are some meds for the Emphysema, lungproblems suck big time!

<span>Crap! Everyone does something stupid in their lives.  My friends Mother smoked for about 40 years+ and also has emphysema.  She's been doing really well.  She does take medication and has an inhaler to use.  She does get out of breath when walking.  She's an old stubborn women who won't use the inhaler.  She coughs and has to sit while she catches her breath.  Thank God I never smoked.  My Dad smoked from when he was 9 years old.  Thankfully his lungs were fine.  Take care.  (((hugs)))</span>

I can see why it's called Garnet Lapis! The duochrome effect is very evident!

Definitely sucks about the COPD.  That being said, the treatment options are more effective and advanced today than ever before, and stopping smoking now is the best thing you could've done for yourself!  My dad has lived a relatively normal life with COPD for the last 22 years. 
You've given me yet another LEMMING!  It's dangerous reading your blog :D 

Be well, and take care of yourself!
