What Are You Wearing on Your Nails?

Published in: Just For Fun, Nails, Nicole By OPI

I’ve got Nicole by OPI Mer-Maid For Each Other ($7) on my paws.

It’s a new shade for fall; I painted it on late last night when I otherwise should have been sleeping…

(That’s one of the things insomnia is good for — late-night at-home manicures.)

So I’m really diggin’ this duo-chrome effect. One minute it’s teal, and the next it looks green!

Pretty cool. :)

I really wanted to show you what it looks like underwater, like when I’m washing my hands or doing the dishes, because I think it looks neat! — like a mermaid’s tail — but it was logistically challenging (holding the camera with one hand while the other was underwater)…

If the color is striking your amphibious fancy, you can grab it now at target.com.

How about you? What are you wearing on your nails?

Fam and noms

Me and the cousins…and as usual, I’m the shortest one in the pic, haha!

It was smooth sailing back from Napa this afternoon because I just managed to miss the traffic. There’s basically only a single major highway in Marin County (101), and it runs from the Napa area in the north down to the Golden Gate Bridge in the south. And every weekday afternoon around 3, it turns into a parking lot. You’re lucky if you’re moving 5 miles an hour, so you want to try to get wherever you’re going by then…

We had a nice lunch. It was funny — at the restaurant, right when the food came out, everyone busted out their cameras and started taking pics (like we were food paparazzi)!

I guess it runs in the family. :)

Some shots of the noms…

It was good to see my cousins. I hadn’t seen them in years. They’re just here on vacation, visiting friends and family all over the place. From here they head to Boston.

How’d things go this afternoon? Are you stoked about Friday?

Um…I am. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

  4. Heidi says:

    The food looks amazing! I’ll have to try that restaurant sometime.

    I’m wearing Sally Hansen Lustreshine in Lava on my nails. The color is really awesome… it looks like, well, lava! Copper with flashes of orange, gold an even some fuschia in different light. So perfect for fall.

    I’m just hanging out this evening, sipping on some hazelnut chai tea and watching the Project Runway finale.

    I love both Essie and OPI polishes, but right now I am obsessed with Spoiled brand of polish in the color- “I Don’t Drink Cheap Wine” which I get in CVS. Such a great color for the holidays.

    Max Factor Odyssey Blue with Barry M Jewel Britannia, an amazing blue-red-white and small holo glitter on top. ♥ I also love duochromes. :)

    Toe nails- OPI Pompeii Purple

  18. Tennyoceres says:

    On my nails? China Glaze Golden Meringue with a matte topcoat. (It goes from golden yellow Las Vegas ‘day look’ polish to a subtle mineral yellow that only flashes in the light.) On my ring fingers are China Glaze Deviantly Daring. It’s a teal to green duochrome that I’m swooning over. I do have Mer-Maid on my wishlist.

  19. I’m wearing Essie’s new Where’s My Chauffer from the Winter 2012 collection right now with Essie’s Stroke of Brilliance over on accent nails. I totally feel you about the late-night manis when you SHOULD be sleeping. I did this last night/this morning at 3:30AM :P It’s when I get all my best work done haha
