Um...it's December.I haven't been on here in a minute. My apologies. Rather than blabbing on about all the reasons I haven't been blogging, I'll get started on this post and hopefully make up for all the time I've been away. As you know, I am a nail polish purchasing fiend. It's a disgusting habit that I have no intention of kicking any time soon or ever. With that said, I'm back with some new favorite nail colors I want to share with you! I have one absolute favorite, so keep scrolling to see which one of these little gems holds the top spot in my nail polish collection.
L to R:
Orly "Nite Owl",
Orly "You're Blushing",
O.P.I. "Dutch Tulips",
and Essie "After School Boy Blazer."
I painted the left nails with one coat and the right nails with two coats
so you could get a better idea of what the opacity looks like.
"Nite Owl" is a taupe shade with golden shimmer throughout it.
What can I say? I like my old lady nail colors.
The shimmer jazzes it it up.
"Halo" is so beautiful.
It's opacity is pretty decent, so you get a lot of glitter with just two coats.
It's made many appearances on my Instagram account. ;)
Also, I can't help hearing this song in my head right now.
Moving right along...
"You're Blushing" is the most lovely nail color I've found in a long time.
I used to wear Essie "Lady Like" for a feminine nail, but this one wins.
It's slightly purple, but not lavender.
It's my favorite shade of taupe, you could say.
I have received many compliments while wearing this color.
"Dutch Tulips" is a bright, in your face kind of red.
It's probably the best bright red shade I have found for my skin tone.
I also receive a lot of compliments about this color.
And nothing says "Christmas" quite like bright red nails.
Now, I beg you to disregard how messy my nails look in this photo.
This little baby is "After School Boy Blazer".
It appears black to the untrained eye, but upon a closer look,
it is quite obviously a deep, vampy navy.
I bought the small bottle of this at Target to give it a try,
but I think I will need to purchase the full size bottle sometime soon.
And the winner is...
After School Boy Blazer
Because I can't help but love my dark, vampy nails.
Also, ignore whatever face I'm making in this picture.
Until next time,
