What Are You Wearing on Your Nails?

Published in: Just For Fun, Nails

I rarely like a color so much that I’ll commit to wearing it on both my peeties and paws at the same time, but I’m doing exactly that with Blue Streak.


It’s Sally Hansen’s $4.95 Insta-Dri in Blue Streak, and I can’t tell you how many girls asked about it at the conference last weekend.

The wide brush covers a large swath of the nail with every pass, which cuts down on the brush strokes, and it dries fast for a polish packing this much pigment. I’m wearing two coats here, and each one dries in less than five minutes.

It’s available now at Ulta stores, among other places that carry Sally Hansen polishes, and also online.

Stuff seems pretty sturdy, too. The mani I gave myself on Friday is still going strong. No chips whatsoever (note: I also applied a base and top coat). And I love the way I feel when I see it on my nails. 🙂

What are you wearing on your nails today?

    Blue gradient on my toes – Zoya’s Ibiza (blackened blue) mixed with white, dark to light on my right foot, light to dark on the left. Nothing but Seche Rebuild (the Bombdizz!!) on my fingers because I couldn’t decide what colors to wear on them, lol.

  21. Jenna says:

    I’m wearing Shellac’s Wildfire. I really love Shellac., it lasts so damn long and stays shiny and looking great sooooo much longer than a regular manicure. Since I can’t do my own nails (my left hand just doesn’t know what it’s doing!) and I have to go to a spa each time, it makes sense to get Shellac.

  22. ana says:

    OPI’s Big Apple Red on my fingers and China Glaze Seashell on my toes:).

  23. Harshleen says:

    I am wearing Zoya Yara from the Smoke and Mirrors collection. Love it!

    Essie.. bobbing for baubles. I was wondering what your thoughts were on the different color nail trend??

    • Karen says:

      Hi Stephanie!

      Are you referring to different shades on each finger? If that’s the case, I really like it, and I do it all the time. I try to make sure that the colors are related, though, otherwise it’s just too random for me.

  28. Nina says:

    nothing. my nails are cut pretty short — the aftermath of a weekend of house cleaning and cooking!

    I am wearing OPI Sand in My Suit… I usually don’t wear such drab colors but I am going back to work tomorrow after a two week vacation and I have to wear faily nude colors…. If I can get away with polish at all… Normally I wear Tickle my Francy, which is also a drab color, but I like it! It’s on my toes now! I really don’t want to go back to work tomorrow!!!!

    CND’s Asphalt Shellac, just had it put on last night – so far I really like it.

  34. Amanda M says:

    Right now I have China Glaze Urban-Night on my toes, but I am in desperate need of a pedicure…this one is a month old and the worse for wear!

    On my fingernails, I’m wearing Mabelline’s Fall LE Cool Couture. Love this! I usually don’t look twice at Maybelline, but this is such a pretty color for fall.

  35. Vonvon says:

    That’s a very pretty shade!

    Currently I am letting my nails rest.

    Butter London in Wallis. I was excited to find it for BOGO at Ulta. It’s such a fall ready shade of golden olive shimmer!

  38. Julia says:

    China Glaze Westside Warrior, an amazing dark olive creme with a fab formula. I highly recommend that anyone who isn’t already to get on the China Glaze bandwagon; I have over 40 polishes from them alone and way over 90% of them are totally awesome in unique ways.

  39. izzie says:

    I’m wearing House of Parliament magnetic polish by Nails Inc., with China Glaze Skyscraper on my accent fingers and one my toes I have China Glaze Phat Santa. =0)

    Tootsies – Essie Sexy Divide (love this shade)

  44. Melissa says:

    OPI Vodka & Caviar. I usually get good wear with this polish but it’s already chipped on 3 nails and I just did it last night! I hope the touch up I just did holds out till the weekend and I can redo them.

  45. Delina says:

    Rimmel Rags to Riches which is a shimmery olive green and put a coat of Wed n Wild Party of Five on top and really liked it. Not only that, it lasted about 5 days before it started to chip and then even after a week it was very minimal. I was so impressed for trying this out for the 1st time!

  46. peach_ says:

    Blue Streak looks great on you! I love those kind of colors where you just can’t help but take a glance at your nails throughout the day.

    It’s Dior Purple Mix for me today.

    Essie My Place or Yours. I think it’s more suitable for 20’s girls (my undergrad students always ask what I’m wearing when I use it), but I was in the mood this week.

  48. I really like this blue on you! Very fresh-looking.

    Today I have on some freehand vampire nail art I did.

    Essence’s You Belong to Me. The name’s a little creepy, but it is a stunning robin’s egg blue. It’s a quick drying 2 coater, only cost 99 cents, and the color makes me smile every time I see my nails 🙂

  50. weny says:

    Zoya Demi … I love it : )

  51. Chris25 says:

    OPI Affair in Red Square!

  52. Priscilla says:

    I’m wearing a ton of different nail colors. On the hands, it’s the four fingers of OPI’s I Brake for Manicures and one ring finger of Parlez-Vous OPI. On the toes, a simple coat of Mermaid’s Tears from OPI.

    😉 Can you tell I’m an OPI fan?

  53. Beverly says:

    OPI–Shim Merry Chic—it is one of my favorite, since my hair is RED HOT RED!!!!

  54. Lisa Marie says:

    I really adore the new Sally Hansen wide nail brush. I am hooked on the insta-dri and complete salon manicure polishes. WHO is this Sally Hansen person and why do I keep giving her all my money??!!?? SH always makes the prettiest blues and greens, as well as nudes, in my opinion. I like the insta-dri for my “fun” colors since I am unable to wear those at work. (Hate our dress code in that fashion) They apply quickly, have a good price point and are a “sturdy” polish.

    Today have my cheap Pure Ice Taupe Drawer on. I always feel a bit elegant in this color.

  55. Rita says:

    Paul & Joe’s Hallelujah!

  56. Yadda says:

    “Black Diamond” by China Glaze, with “Rainbow Connection” by OPI on top. :]
