What Are You Wearing on Your Nails?

Published in: Just For Fun, Nails

Bohemian Republik Mystic Ruin

Mystic Ruin, by Bohemian Republik ($12)

I’ve got two coats of Bohemian Republik’s $12 Mystic Ruin on my paws.

It’s a navy blue with tiny flecks of gold micro-glitter and larger bits of pink foil.


Pretty, yeah? And different. It reminds me of a Flintstones dinosaur…

I don’t think I have anything else like it in my stash.

Now it’s your turn. What are you wearing on your nails?

    This is a really pretty shade. I am currently wearing Essie Warm&Toasty Turtleneck from the winter collection with a coat of Sephora X Formula topcoat in Chaotic and I love the combination although one of my nails chipped so tomorrow it’s time for a new mani.

    Happy weekend!

    • Karen says:

      Nice! Have you thought about what you’re going to paint your nails tomorrow?

      I forgot to mention my toes…I’m wearing OPI Sleigh Ride For Two from the Mariah holiday collection. πŸ™‚

      • Agata says:

        I think I will paint them with Zoya Pepper which is a beautiful brownish-orange-rusty kinda shade, perfect for fall. And I need to pain my toes!

  2. Lauren says:

    On my toenails i’m wearing OPI’s ‘Off With Her Red’ nail polish from their Alice in Wonderland collection from a while back πŸ™‚ Such a lovely bright red! I love to play around with painting my toenails since my job doesn’t allow nail polish on our hands πŸ™

    I’m wearing Deborah Lippmann Lara’s Theme. It’s such a great pumpkin-y orange. I figured a plain orange creme was as thematic as I could get for Halloween while still being somewhat work-appropriate.:-)

  5. Aylin says:

    I am wearing OPI’s “over the taupe” right now. Aaand thats it! No glitter nothing! I just like this color the way it is πŸ™‚ perfect cute brown, good for a classic fall day :)) But I loved your shade! Gonna try

  6. Trisha says:

    I love your polish!

    Right now, I have the remnants of my Halloween manicure, but it’s SUPER chipped. I really need to remove it and do something else…

    Quite a unique color! I don’t think I’ve even heard of this brand. Will have to check them out.

    I painted them this morning with Dior’s Diorific Vernis in Marilyn. Love it!

  9. Noon says:

    Essie Parka Perfect topped with Essie Gold As It Gets. I also put a little half-pearl nail decoration in the middle of each of my middle fingers haha, I feel so chic!

  12. I am wearing Butter London nail foundation, in an attempt to fool my boss into thinking my nails are bare. Stupid no-nail polish policy πŸ™

  13. Abbie says:

    I still have my unoriginal halloween paint dripping nails because I cannot build up the effort at the moment to take them off. Will have to by monday though (stupid no nail polish school rules)

  14. Lorraine says:

    I just had a nail playdate with my BFF, so I have skittles! Greys on one hand, burgundies on the other. So much fun- we get our collections together to swatch and compare, then we cherry pick out what we want to borrow from each other’s stashes until next time. Like Lacquerous, only this comes with coffee and conversation. Great way to try new brands and colors or quell a lemming! or start a new one. πŸ™‚

  15. Amber says:

    I’m wearing Nailtini’s MaiTai…a festive orange shade!

  16. Sarah S. says:

    How perfect! I keep a single nail polish color per month, and November’s color just happens to be Orly Fowl Play (which looks like a dupe of Mystic Ruin) πŸ˜€

  17. Michelle says:

    Essie’s “Smokin’ Hot”…a perfect purply-brown for Fall!

  18. Chelsea says:

    That is super gorgeous! My nails are extraordinarily short right now πŸ™ They’re breaking, probably from walking in cold weather without gloves, bad Chelsea!

  19. Majick says:

    A very chipped on the edge, Piggy Polish called Fires Burn and Cauldrons Bubble. It’s my new favorite glitter polich of all time. It’s a perfect grey with orange sparkles. YEA!

  20. Nati says:

    Hi Karen, what a unique shade you have! I’m wearing nail art using the latest Essence collection Superheroes.
    Have a great weekend! πŸ™‚

  21. Vespers says:

    Right now I’m wearing OPI’s Deutsche You Want Me Baby on my nails. Pretty and orange. Was my festive Halloween manicure!

  22. Arlette says:

    I am wearing a Zoya nailpolish in Mason that came with one of my ipsy bags recently. It’s such a pretty color because it is a duotone color and it almost seems like it has flecks of orange-gold glitter but it doesn’t!

  23. Trude says:

    Such a pretty subtle glitter, I like! I’m wearing China Glaze’s Urban-Night, and nice deep pure purple. It’s out of a huge stash my most recent portrait client gifted me, as she works for them – score! (See the crazy generous stash here: http://instagram.com/p/f1X1mEzfSg/ ) πŸ™‚

    I am wearing Essie Sole Mate on my fingers, the perfect dark burgundy and nothing on my toes (no sandals = no need for polish). Haha, I’m lazy like that.

    I just did my nails today with Cult Nails Bitten. I’ve had it almost a year now and it’s the first time I’ve worn it. Totally gorgeous and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t use it sooner.
    OPI’s Suzi’s Hungary Again is on my toes.

  26. My nails are feeling so poor.. not wearing anything.. planning to get a bright Red on them with some Gold tips.. πŸ™‚

  27. Brittnee says:

    Zoya in Mason but I like yours better!

  28. Mardi says:

    My fingers are wearing Butter London sprog, a purple/blue/grey dusty creme that I bought yesterday. Toes have an Inglot peachy pink nudish creme – they don’t have names and I can’t remember the number. No art or glitter I’m old fashioned that way πŸ™‚ Love it on others though!

    Both polishes cruelty free FTW!

  29. StrayCat says:

    I’m still wearing my Halloween nails…..”Morbid” by Wet -N- Wild. It’s a deep luster forest green color. Love it and it cost like 99 cents back in the day! On my toes I have an ancient YSL color #86…a medium tone rusty orange color. A mani is on the weekend schedule!

  30. Felis says:

    On my nails is a multichrome glitter, Color-Changing Garnet by Ninja Polish. On my toes is a combination of four different purple and blue glitter polishes – Milani, Jessica, Zoya, Blackheart – and I don’t remember all the names. I just kept slapping on different ones until my toes were sufficiently blingy.

  31. Melissa says:

    Chanel Peridot. One of my favorites. I know they are probably overpriced but I just love the depth and how easy it applies.
