We are entering into February and with it brings BLUE, to which we will refer to as the “Blue Period,” previously made famous by Picasso, who painted with such blue-green colors between the years of 1901-1904.

And, not that I am feeling anything like Picasso, or profess to have any talent resembling his.  And not that I am somber or sad either.

But just because I love blue and am feeling a bit monochromatic at the moment.

I mean, just check out all these blues I have collected over the past few months….

(Thank you, Gloss, for adding two more blue lacquers to my collection and solidifying my Blue Period.)

So, without further ado, I begin my blue period with Essie’s Lapiz of Luxury (who’s title I also have a special affinity for, as Lapis Lazuli is the exotic stone of ancient Egypt, but I digress).

Essie’s Lapiz of Luxury is my new favorite blue!  Bright and, on a clear day, the color of the sky….

(It has been 80 degrees all weekend in LA!….not a cloud in the sky, as you can see directly behind my hand) 

Ok, so Lapiz of Luxury is not exactly the color of Lapis Lazuli, which is a much deeper blue that is famous for detailing Tutankhamun’s Sarcophagus.  I would say Essie’s Lapiz of Luxury is more of a cobalt blue.  And I just love it!
