Sally Hansen gunmetal. It's a pretty color and I'll definitely use it on my toes.

i'm so bummed. my nails are at a pretty length but they are peeling so badly that i need to cut them. a day or two in my nail polish cracks along the peels. i'm going to go heavy on the orly nailtrition and hopefully baby my nails back to health. my acupuncturist says that peels in the nails indicate digestive issues which i know i've had. urgh...bummer!

Looks great!

Gunmetal is one of my favorites. I need to use it again this season.

I like both of those.

The first is even better since you say it shows purple.

I'd love to have a green/blue/purple multichrome.

I'd really like to do one nail orange with the gunmetal on the rest to celebrate Halloween for the month. I need to go shopping and find some orange!

I know one thing for sure, I gotta cut these nails because they're making me crazy.

This thread is interesting since I can track growth.

Sep 6th trim.


Oct 1st mani.


I just trimmed tonight which made me think of it. I want last week's length for Halloween, so I figured I'd trim tonight.

I have a bunch of oranges. Too bad you aren't local to me, lol. You could use my leathery grey-black too.

Definitely too bad because no way I'll ever use a whole bottle of orange! That combo would be great, too!

I did an ombre with 5 grey creams. I'll list and describe them later when it's daylight and I can get day pics instead of lamp pics.

Here are lamp pics, though.

Thanks! It was fun to do! I didn't want to wait a whole month to go through testing a bunch of new cremes, so, I figured I'd wear them all at once!

Here's a web pic of the lunar eclipse that shows the purple a bit better. I think it's red micro glitter that combines with the blue to give a purple impression rather than straight up purple.

This time of year you can usually find little mini bottles of orange polish at the drug stores. I just got an OPI mini at CVS. I'm doing orange with black crackle for halloween too!!

You're welcome! They are sometimes with the halloween stuff instead of with nail polish.
