What Are You Wearing on Your Nails?

Published in: Just For Fun

Messy reverse french braid

I’m wearing Julep Nail Color in Bette ($14), a bright, creamy purple.


I was kinda hoping it would turn out to be a slightly darker, slightler more red dupe for Tom Ford African Violet, my numero uno purple polish love, but alas… Not quite.

Almost, though. I still like it.

How about poo, bear? What are you wearing on your nails right meow?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Guess who’s workin’ in the dark ages today? Yep, mah Internets are down! I have Comcast out here, and it went offline early this morning, so I’m using my iPhone and a little side keyboard to type.

I’m also realizing that this might be a good opportunity to finish the tabby command center.

Actually…it’s done! 🙂 His royal highness has even completed his initial walkthrough, and we’ve passed all of the official government inspections, so things are looking good.

    Hi Karen,

    Tabs command center looks fabulous! Now he can chirp at birds and get some sun and fresh air. That is too cute. He is lucky to have such a great assistant. LOL



  2. Agata says:

    Wow, the little Tabs’ house looks great, he seems to like it!

    On my nails I am wearing Essie Blanc with Essie Summit of Style on my ring fingers. Trying to decide what color to paint my nails for Vegas!

    That cat thing is pretty cute! I’m wearing nothing. I split me thumbnail super low into the nail bed so I had to remove and trim everything 🙁

    I love the tabby fortress! I’m wanting to build QB a little bunny plaza.

    Nothing on my nails, but I have an update on Le Volume de Chanel waterproof! I do need an oil based remover for the most efficient removal, but it will come off with Bioderma if I put time into it. But with oil, it comes off easy peasy.

    Tabs’ cat condo looks amazing! I should probably build something similar for my Jack.

    I’m not wearing anything on my nails right now, but I was wearing NARS Orgasm (and then I ruined them by trying to open a travel mirror while they were still damp). I might try butter London’s Thames next!

    On my lips, however, I’m wearing Lavender Jade, from MAC’s Bao Bao Wan collection. I woke up early to go get it, and thank heavens I did because they only carried a few! They were sold out of the Cinderella ones, though (they’d opened an hour early for a launch party and I got there 45 minutes after they’d opened), and there were a lot of annoyed people who were coming in during opening hours to find everything gone.

  6. Ruchita says:

    That’s a pretty, purple nail color. My nails are in bad shape right now, no color. I’m thinking of splurging on a gel manicure because they last so long!

    Tabs looks so cute in his enclosure! I bet he loves sitting out there. I have a mesh, pop-up tent for Mingus and in the warmer weather he enjoys having his dinner out on the deck. Spoiled, much? 🙂

  7. Aeris says:

    Tabs really looks like a King in his castle! 😉

    I’m wearing the limited Edition “Lady” from the Spring Dior collection. It’s really a beautiful nude with a hint of lavander that makes it really different!

  8. Elle says:

    It would entertain Tabs greatly if you put a bird feeder where he can see it from there. I had a cat that would spend hours looking at the birds from a window.

    • Karen says:

      Good idea, Elle! There’s one for hummingbirds just above the command center, just barely out of these pics, but none of them have stopped by yet while Tabs has been monitoring things.

      He still kacks at every other kind of bird, though. We get a lot of finches and crows around here, but the crows kind of scare Tabs. Those birds get big!

    I’m not wearing anything on my nails, but I have been wanting to paint them pink.

    Unfortunately, I went through a phase where I gathered quite a few nail polish colors (thankfully all the colors can be contained in a normal short boot box) but the dry time was always way too long. My definition of long being upwards of 4 hours for the polish to completely set. I tried a couple of different drying drops and fast drying top coats but nothing really helped shorten the time past 2 hours. Do you have any recommendations?

    The tabby control center looks wicked though! I have three cats at home and all of them want to explore the outdoors but the area where we live has quite a few coyotes in the nearby park. Out of curiosity, was the control center ordered or made at home because either way it looks great!

    • Jen C says:

      Not Karen, but have you tried Poshe or Seche Vite? Both dry pretty fast on me – or at least harden the surface of the polish so I can do my daily chores- in an hour or less.

  11. Stacey says:

    Tabs command center looks great! What I’m currently wearing on my nails is actually Behr interior paint in Castle Path and Swiss Coffee. Been working on redecorating and just haven’t taken the time to get all of the paint off my nails. Still have a little more painting to do tomorrow anyways.

  12. Jane says:

    Spa Rituals Primitive, OPI Casino Royale may be more red and dark?

  13. Jen C says:

    I think Zoya Margo maybe the one you’re looking for! I love the formula n brushes of Zoya polishes in general, so worth a try? Won’t break the bank too!

  14. snoopysteph says:

    Aww, even kitties need to get some fresh air regularly! Seems like Tabs is enjoying his kitty condo.

    I’m wearing Chanel Tenderly on my nails today!

    If my internet went down it would be NO BUENO for me! I’m right in the thick of tax season and I would be like a mad woman on the phone with Comcast.

  15. Rachel R. says:

    Love Tabs’ cat habitat. 🙂

    I’m wearing Kiara Sky nail lacquer in Fireball on my nails.

  16. My nails are bare, as I didn’t take any polish with me to NZ. Saving some time and Space, you know…
    But as I am flying back home today, my paws will be polished again by Caturday!

    Tabs Outdoor mansion looks great. I can picture him gazing at the hills, reflecting upon life, the universe and gravy.

    Wish I could post a picture of my nails since they look fabulous! Went to Birchbox SoHo to use a gilt city voucher for a service and to build two boxes. Got something different on each nail and only used three colors – RGB Haze, RGB Steel, and Jin Soon Obsidian Galaxy. It looks gorgeous and I can’t stop staring. If you want to see, it’s posted on my Instagram (divinemissem11).

  18. That’s puuuurty! I’m wearing Venus Red from the MAC Toledo collection.

    Awwww! Look at Tabs’ happy face! He has settled right in to the command center. That’s awesome! It’s always nice to see when your hard work is appreciated. Congrats! 🙂

  20. Trude says:

    I’m wearing CND’s Vinylux in Rouge Red…again. I can’t stop! The formula is fantastic and the wear time, while it’s not as long as gel, is usually a solid 6 days minimum (and it removes like regular polish). I do find that it dulls much more than regular polish for some reason, so I reapply top coat (Essie’s quick-dry) after 3 days or so.

    Tabs looks so happy out there! 🙂

  21. Majick says:

    That’s a really nice command post Tabs! It is good to be the king.

    I have nothing on my nails right now. I did have NARS Shiap on there but they didn’t last as long as my OPI manis. I’m due for a pedi too and I’m just not sure WHAT color I’m feeling these days. Do they make a color called UGH? lol
