Yom, have you looked at Essie Limo-scene? It's very neutral, it might fit the bill as a nude for you. There are others, I'm sure. I stick with Ballet Slippers, as my subtle/neutral favorite, but it has more of a pink tone to it.

The first pic is Sally Hansen Pacific Blue. It is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I like it. Next I added Pure Ice Heartbreaker over the top. It is a shear blue/green with green microglitter. I liked my mani much better this way, probably because it is more inside my comfort zone. My pic didn't capture it at all. The 3rd pic is Wet 'n Wild Megalast Candylicious stamped with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and the Salon Express (as seen on TV) stamping kit. Candylicious is a great color if you don't have a Barbie pink. I'll get a big bottle when I kill this mini. I should have made a 3 stamp/nail rule. I tried to stick to three hearts, but sometimes my brain made me do one more. Next time 3/nail max.

Sister and I took off work today and had a spa day at the local cosmetology school. So cheap and the students are all so fun. Manicure is still nearly perfect so I had a pedicure (couldn't stand the naked toes anymore).
China Glaze in Foxy.

Thanks, I'll check them out. They both look pretty online but I have to see them in real life

I think I'm going to do this on Monday. I'll do v-day colors as a base and trying to decide between Essie Sexy Divide & Zoya Casey for top, maybe both. We'll see. I don't think Sexy Divide will be as dark as I want it but I don't think I have a dark purple. Casey is more of a red-purple to me.

I'm taking Sam off tonight or tomorrow morning and moisturizing my nails/cuticles all weekend. It actually didn't chip until yesterday! So 5-6 days.

I'll post pics of both. I took them of Sam but haven't even looked at them yet.

I love getting packages in the mail. Today it was a nice lot of Milani polish. They are all different, tho some look the same in the pic. The light colors and pastels will go to my sisters. The brights and darks will go to me! : )

Bought them on ebay. I had a couple bottles of Milani brand and they wore so well I wanted some more.

How and where does everyone store their polishes?

I usually do Ulta clearance, they have loads on loads on loads of nail polish on clearance.

For Milani Jeepy, Always check CVS too, they will have sales of like 75% off milani stuff sometimes, so I usually go during that time. I have some holographic nail polish by Milani it was 75% only like a 1. and some change to buy.


I used to have a sally's card and I'd buy the china glaze on sale there. I don't have one anymore because I spent way too much money.


I rarely by nail polish for the original price.. OMG after christmas at ulta....sooo much for like 1.99.

I keep mine in this basket under the sink of the downstairs bathroom (since I do my nails in the kitchen). If it gets too full I toss out or give away some old polish to make room for new. I refuse to go any bigger than this. I've upped the size of my storage basket twice in the last couple years thanks to this darn thread. : )
