And it's time to gather 'round again and enjoy a delicious cocktail and a stunning nail polish!! Today's cocktail of the day is Romeo and Juliet, inspired by OPI "Romeo & Joliet"!
I'm such a dumbass and I didn't take pictures of this polish before I stamped it... sorry!!!! I hope you can still see how beautiful it is through the design though!
Romeo & Joliet is a one-coater!! It's a brown base with red undertones filled with rusty/brownish shimmer. Perfect formula!!! What a great polish for the fall!!
I stamped it with two designs from the same plate: BM-316 and using Orly "Luxe".
Romeo & Joliet was originally released in OPI's Route 66 Fall/Winter collection in 1997. It is available for purchase from Amazon or eBay.
The jewelry you see in my hand is my new earrings and necklace that I got as a surprise gift from my hubby!! The beads the jewelry is made of are Huayruro beads that grow in South and Central America and are believed to bring prosperity and good luck. The whole set was made by an artist who was my neighbor at my latest art show. I've been eyeing this set all day on Friday and Saturday and was going to buy it on Sunday if nobody else hasn't. So you can imagine my disappointment when the artist told me on Saturday evening that someone already bought it!! I was trying to choose something else to get but nothing was as beautiful as these. But as you can guess by now, it was my husband who got this for me! I was sooo surprised and happy when he gave it to me on Saturday night!! What an awesome guy =))
Anyway... so how about that drink you say? =)
Romeo and Juliet cocktail
1 1/2 oz. Patron Silver tequila
1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
1/4 oz. cherry or Chambord raspberry liquor
2 oz. chilled peach juice
3 maraschino cherries, garnish
Orange spiral, garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice; add tequila (or Absolut Peach), Grand Marnier, cherry liquor and peach juice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds and pour into a chilled fluted glass or large martini glass.
Place orange spiral on the lip of the glass so it drapes down the side. Skewer three cherries on a swizzle stick and lay across the lip.
This sounds really good with an exception of tequila (trouble!!!!) so I'd personally go with the Absolut Peach. Does it sound appetizing to you?
How do you guys like today's polish? What is your favorite brown/rusty color for autumn?
Have a wonderful day and I leave you with this famous quote!:
"Good Night, Good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow."
