Nail of the ...

... Day? Week? However long my nail polish will last for a given period of time before it starts to chip or I feel like wiping it off?
Hello dear readers, I'm back once again. You know my last post? Well, today I have a full manicure, as it were, to show you. Here it is:
Holo Taco One Coat Black with Blue Flakie Holo Taco over Solar Unicorn Skin
And the thumb shot if you want it:

I love the look of Blue Flakie Holo Taco over Solar Unicorn Skin. I was going for a simultaneously fire and ice look and this didn't disappoint me at all. Seeing the picture of the polish on my nails versus seeing the polish live on my nails really doesn't do this one justice: you've got to see it live and in person!
Well, that's it for today, dear reader. Until the next time, hugs and kisses.

Update, July 28, 2020: This manicure I posted about on Friday. Well, it lasted three full days from Friday through Monday until I took a shower Monday evening. While in the shower, the polish on three of t…

A Tale of Three

Image
Hello dear readers it's me again! This time I have a trio of polishes I want to show you. Here they are, Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow. (All of these are two quick and dirty coats)
Version 1 This was the one I needed flash for. It's a frosty limon. 
Version 2 This one looks to me like a pastel yellow. Okay, not particularly pastel since pastel implies softness and gray. No, this looks more like a slightly whiter based yellow to me.
Version 3 The one I'm wearing right now. This is the egg-yolk yellow color I've been looking for since for some reason, someone (not sure who) said that egg-yolk yellow looks great on Deep Autumn people. Whoever said that isn't wrong because I like the way this color looks live on my nails.
I always like to compare three different nail polishes, all with the same name but in different tones of the same color. This week was Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow. I might update this post, including this titl…

Nail Polish Spam Fest Part 2

Image
Hello everyone I'm back with part 2 of my Nail Polish Spam Fest.
Note:  The first polish pictured was taken on July 8, 2020. The rest were taken on July 9, 2020.
China Glaze Pleather Weather A light gray matte. This was the sole picture taken on July 8. From the Fall 2018 Ready to Wear collection.
OPI Push and Shove A bright silver chrome. This came from Gwen Stefani's January 2014 collection.
China Glaze Recycle A medium neutral gray creme. This came from the Spring 2008 E-Collection.
China Glaze OMG A silver with holographic shimmer (or, as many call it, a linear holographic). The original came out in Spring (or perhaps summer) of 2008. This is from the Flashback collection in 2018.
OPI Tell Me About It Stud A classic true red creme. This picture makes the polish look pinker than it is in real life. From the Summer 2018 Grease (40th Anniversary) collection.
Color Club Black Magic A deep charcoal with chunky holographic shimmer. I bought this off the shelf at Walmart back in May. 
Zoya Cin…
