What nail polish do you have on at the moment?

As awful as the name and description of that polish is, I love the color!

I gave it a shot. I had no silver strips to put on my nails, so I had to paint the silver lines. I used four shades of purple. From the bottom left, clockwise: Pom Pom, by Cina Glaze; Fowl Play, by Orly; Not Your Mama's Mauve, by Orly; and Lucky Lucky Lavender, by OPI.

They're starting to make gel nail kits with LED instead of UV lamps now! There's a brand called Sensationail that's sold at places like CVS for 50 or 60 bucks. If I actually start painting my nails and get into it enough to justify the expense, this actually makes it so I'd consider trying the gel nail thing out.

OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I took off the polish I did last night because I didn't like the silver lines. This is Trophy Wife, by Essie (I hate the name):



I kind of wish I only put the lines on my ring finger, but I like the blue/green color so I think I'll leave it until it chips.

I like those ones that Ajidahk posted.

Bretty, how did you do the lines? I like both the blue and the purple.

I want that one partly for the name and the political hilarity. I can make a political statement without anyone knowing. But, I have no curious young children at home to worry about.

Then I went on to tell him about the nail polish and I loved the look on his face.

This blog is hosting a giveaway of some ManGlaze, Santorum included. That blue one looks interesting.

RCC, thanks for that link!

I was reading it out loud to DH and when I got to this line "Savage created a web site to promote this definition, which became a prominent search result for Santorum's name on several web search engines." I could NOT control my laughter.

Oh, the things you learn online.

Thanks for the link RCC, that's what I was thinking.

So, I was reading a nail blog last night about the new China Glaze Capital Hunger Games color Mahogany Magic and someone made mention of another China Glaze color and an Urban Decay color and it made me think of that ManGlaze color picture with the shiny top coat. Not a true dupe but very close to it.
