What nail polish do you have on at the moment?

My husband came home with this stash of nail polish and treatments for me.

sariroo, I literally gasped at that picture, that is amazing!

(I guess nail polish now has the power to disturb my breathing pattern.)

painting my nails is major stress relief. I usually do it sunday nights, after I finish homework, while catching up on tv.
I am no nail artist. My only artistic ability has ever been being able to paint a good straight line for a French manicure. Tonight, when I looked in my nail box to choose colors, Zoya Trixie and Finger Paints Where Art Renoir called to me. I painted on the Trixie, not knowing what to do with the Where Art Renoir. I just knew I really wanted to use it. I just bought it last week and it's a beautiful black with tiny hints of glitter. So I originally planned to just do French with them. But when I picked up the black, I was hit with a sudden inspiration. I blame it all on all of you.



It came out WAY better than I thought it would! Appropriate, considering the events of this week, I think.

Did you have a list of all those colors, or did he choose some too? What a haul!

This is the other Zoya nail polish I got in the free-with-shipping deal. This is Ivanka and it is lovely.
(I know, I know, it's messy)
I wish I had the patience to grow out long nails, but they irritate me.

So I finally got to polish my nails...changed my mind and used Revlon Regal Wine. It's a nice red (discontinued color).

Nallia that looks great!

Decided to paint my nails Sephora by OPI in the color Read My Palm

Later on I painted little roses in acrylic. Painted my baby sisters nails as well

nallia did you use any sort of guides or is the curvy line free had? i looks really good!
a dreamy pisces
please recycle, it matters...
i change lives...through fitness
i'm more relaxed being natural
I painted it freehand. I didn't think I would be able to do it, but it really wasn't any harder than painting a line for a French mani.

Essie lady like. A nice pinky mauve color depending on the light.

I really want to get the above Essie shade now. For some reason I've been imagining a really specific light coral shade and wanting to find a color like it. So I did an 'Essie coral' image search, and this is pretty much it:



Haute as Hello. A Summer 2010 color still available through Amazon fortunately.

Carousel Coral is a beautiful deeper version of this color.
