My Dreamdate

24 Jan

Actually this post is about nail polish – sorry for the let down!

As many of you know, I am always on the lookout for great polish that I can wear to work that is both fun and “appropriate.” Enter Confetti’s Dreamdate.

It is a sheer pink sparkly polish with enough glitter to catch the light but not too much to distract. I love it because not only is the polish fast drying, but you can reapply coats without it showing up so it is perfect for someone like me who is awesome at chipping her nails!

 

What nail colors do you like to wear for work?

New Year’s Reverse Dip

30 Dec

I wanted to add some color to my last manicure, but I didn’t want to cover up the polish. Instead I opted for a reverse glitter dip! Here I’ve combined Sinful in Let’s Talk and Milani Disco Lights.

While I’m not sold on this color combo or application (I feel I did it too thick) I like the reverse glitter dip and want to experiment with it more.

 

What is your New Year’s Eve manicure going to look like? Going for glitter?

Let’s Talk

28 Dec

Let’s Talk about Sinful‘s deep electric purple Let’s Talk! I instantly fell in love with the color when I saw it. At first I thought it was perfect only for toes (a little bold on the nails for me) but I love it for vacation! It applies evenly and the color is so rich! While it is beautiful on it’s own, it looks like you have a galaxy on your nails when coupled with iridescent glitter!

What’s your favorite fun polish color? Is there one you’ve always wanted to try but have been too afraid to do so?

Candy Cane Nails

26 Dec

Today’s nails are one of my favorite combos of tomato red and iridescent glitter! I’m wearing Color Mates in Romance and Wet n’ Wild in Hallucinate.

And don’t judge on the Color Mates… I bought it when I was in a bind: without polish at my boyfriend’s parent’s house for a week and my pedicure was flaking like no other (too brittle of a top coat). I literally took my morning jog to the drug store and this was the only polish they had. Turned out to be a great match!

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 24

24 Dec

We’re almost here! Second to last day!!

24. Pedicure Gift Card. After all of that running, your feet take quite a lot of wear and stop looking as cute as they once did before you took on this amazing though sometimes crazy hobby. An amazing gift to give a runner is a gift certificate for a pedicure. An hour spent rubbing, buffing, massaging and painting those tired feet will make the runner in your life so happy!

Holiday Nails 2011

28 Nov

At my local Walgreens I picked up the most (in my view) intriguing color from Wet ‘n Wild’s Holiday Collection: Back Alley Deals.

This is a gorgeous purple glitter with bright magenta large circular glitter throughout. In the bottle I loved it, but applying it was a different story.

While I usually LOVE Wet ‘n Wild’s glitters, this one was streaky and didn’t apply evenly. I think this is a polish that will either require a dark base coat or more than 2 coats on it’s own. You decide:

Overall I love the color but wish it applied better. On the plus side, it dries super fast & really hard!

What are your holiday nails going to be this season? I’d love to hear!
