NOTD: Finger Paints Warm He-art-ed

I am in love with this polish!  It is so nice and inviting looking.  It’s definitely going to be a staple this fall.  A great purchase for my first Finger Paint (got it at Sally’s).

Its a dusty brown with red/orange shimmer, reminds me of a cozy fire. Awesome!

I topped it with Nubar 2010, since the flakies are pretty much the same as the shimmer colors. It kind of overpowered the shimmer though; I think I liked it better plain.

Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Black Holo Glitter

This is the last of the posts for the UnTried Polish Theme Week.  It was a great success for me, 15 polishes checked off!  This mani is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear In the Spotlight and Wet ‘n’ Wild Kaliedoscope (not untried) over China Glaze Cosmic, with a base of WnW Black Creme. Accent Nail is WnW Silvivor with the two glitters on top. Cosmic wasn’t as glittery as I was hoping from the bottle, the base was too thick to let the colors come through. So I had to bling it up…maaaybe too much, lol.

Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Blue

This is Last Friday Night by OPI, from the Katy Perry Collection. I layered it over Sally Hansen HD in Blu.  On reflection, I would do white under everything to get rid of the VNL, as these are both pretty sheer.  I do like how it came out bottle color for the OPI though.  The colors worked really nice together.

I like it in the shade better, you can see all the colors in the glitter that way, instead of just a reflection.

Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Orange Glass-Fleck

Woohoo! Two more untries down. I loooove anything nautical, so I bought the entire Anchors Away collection. Tried Lighthouse, White Cap, and Hey Sailor earlier this week and enjoyed them all.

My mani is China Glaze Life Preserver with Wet n’ Wild 9.0.2.1.Orange on the accent. This is two coats of Life Preserver, I would have done three for no visible nail line (VNL) but it was sooo late and I wanted to sleep.

This polish is a bit darker than it photographs, its a teesy bit more red-orange than yellow-orange…think old school life preserver color that you see on ferries and stuff. I wasn’t sure how it would look with my skin tone, but it is playing nice.

Only one coat of the WnW on my ring fingers.
Topped with Seche Vite.

Please excuse the tip wear…I type violently and I was too lazy to tip wrap, lol.

Theme Week: Untried Polish – Essie Shimmer

This was my first time wearing Essie ever! I thought they were a little streaky on the first coat, but evened out nicely. And this is four untried polishes for me, yeah stash bashing!

Essie Merino Cool (brown/taupe creme)
Essie Pretty Edgy (kelly green creme)
Konad Special Polish in White
China Glaze White Cap (gold shimmer/glitter?) 1 coat on accent nails

Looking at it today, I would only do Konad on the accent nails and skip the glitter in the future. But it was great stamping practice (so hard to get the image straight)!
