Revlon Brilliant Bordeaux

Hey y'all!  TGIF!!!  So glad this week is O-V-E-R Over!!!  I'm starting my weekend off by wearing one of the polishes my sweet hubby got me for Christmas.  Revlon Brilliant Bordeaux. 

This actually a really interesting polish.  It wasn't quite what I thought it was from just looking at it in the bottle.  It's got a black tinted jelly base with black and fuchsia micro glitter and fuchsia and silver holo bar glitter.   The black glitter is what surprised me.  It surprised me in a good way, I like it a lot. 

On the Index and ring is Essie No Place Like Chrome, middle is Pure Ice Touch Me Softly and pinky is Wet and Wild Black Creme. 

I'm kind of loving the super macro option on my new camera. :)  

I'm still getting used to the new camera.  I am having a hard time getting my lighting and colors right.  I'm in serious need of a new lamp.  As soon as I can I think I'm going to upgrade to an Ott Lite.  I've heard amazing things about them. 

It sucks to have this awesome camera in my hands and really not know what I'm doing with it. One of my friends just gave me a "Photography for Dummies" book though so I should be good lol.  I've also been doing a lot of googling and this weekend I'm going to my Mom and Dad's and I'm going to let him give me some photography lessons.  He teaches a high school photography class so hopefully he can teach me a thing or two.

I'm just so used to my Kodak point and shoot.  It does everything for me.  With this new Fujifilm, I have all these settings with big words I don't know lol.  Everything has to be JUST right and the stars have to align.  But let me tell you, when they align, boy do they. Check out this picture of the moon I took a couple of weekends ago. I'm still in shock over it. I had taken about 100 others that look basically like a big white glowing ball.  But as I played with the settings, the zoom, the shutter speed and aperture (see, big words)  the stars aligned and it happened. 

I'm obsessed with taking pictures of the moon now.  I was out at about 2 am a couple of nights ago and got this shot as the moon started rising.  It was so orange, I thought it was awesome. 

Yeah, I'm showing off a little lol.  What's frustrating is that I can take these bad ass pictures of the MOON but I can't seem to figure out how to get good consistent photos of my hand 5 inches in front of me.  Not that I think my pictures are bad, I just want them to be perfect.  Is that too much to ask?  ;) 

Okay, I'm getting all rambly and have probably already lost most of my readers by now.  Have a great weekend everybody.  XOXO
