What Are You Wearing On Your Nails?

Tom Ford Beauty Vapor Nail Lacquer

Tom Ford Beauty Vapor Nail Lacquer, $30

I’m wearing two coats of Tom’s new semi-opaque shimmery white Vapor Nail Lacquer ($30) from the summer 2013 collection.

The color, I feel just so-so about, but I love the brush, which just lays down the color so smoothly, and the sleek formula.


Not bad wear time, either. I’m on my fourth day so far, and I’m just beginning to notice a couple of tiny cracks forming around the edges, and that’s without a base or top coat.

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

    That looks very pretty. I am wearing Essie Bottle Service from the Neon 2013 collection with a coat of OPI Polka.com glittery top coat.

    • Karen says:

      Your mani sounds pretty Agata!

      Did you guys ever get to watch The Great Gastby this weekend? I still haven’t gotten the chance.

      • Agata says:

        Thanks, I just posted a pic of my mani on FB πŸ™‚ No, I haven’t seen it yet cause my husband is lame. I am hoping to see it tomorrow with my friend. If not, I am going to see it by myself on Friday πŸ™‚

        • Karen says:

          Haha, so is mine. I think he’s purposefully trying to avoid watching it. I was thinking of doing the same thing (watching it by myself) on Friday, how funny! I wish you lived closer, then we could go.

  2. MJ says:

    That color is something my mom would really love. πŸ™‚ As for me, I’m wearing Pretty Serious’ BSOD. It’s this gorgeous blue jelly that’s packed full of blue glitter. πŸ˜€

    • Karen says:

      Hi MJ,

      Oh how fun! I love jelly polishes…the finish is so carefree and relaxed.

      Hope you had a nice weekend. What did you do?

      • MJ says:

        I spent my weekend studying for finals~ although I got to spend Mother’s Day with the family as well as my bf’s family. Hooray family bonding! πŸ˜€

        How was your weekend? πŸ™‚

    I finally found my perfect red, Deborah Lippmann “Single Ladies” :).

  5. Sunny says:

    Chanel Taboo! It FINALLY became available last Friday and I had put it down on my schedule LOL That’s how excited I was/am!

  6. Heather says:

    Horrifyingly enough, I’ve got no nail polish on my nails! I wore Zoya’s Sookie (bright! cheerful! summer red!) for a week and a half, refusing to change colors until I finished painting our den (little flicks of the wall paint kept getting on my nails anyhow – so why bother?). Yesterday, I couldn’t take it anymore and took the polish off, but had no time to repaint my nails. Tonight I’ll have time – I think I’ll go with China Glaze’s First Mate color this time.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heather,

      What color did you paint the den? I’m getting the itch to paint my bedroom. πŸ™‚

      • Heather says:

        2 colors by Benjamin Moore paints: granite and hawthorne yellow. I wouldn’t go with the granite for my bedroom, but the hawthorne yellow would be very pretty for a bedroom – maybe with a nice cream color for the window sills.

  7. Eva says:

    That’s a lovely color on you! πŸ™‚

    Right now, I’m wearing Essie’s French Affair from one of their past spring collections. It’s lasted for about 8 days already with only slight chipping at the edges. I found that if you paint a top coat every 2 days, it really helps keep your manicure for longer.

  8. GB says:

    I’m wearing China Glaze’s For Audrey — one of my favorites. It works well with my very fair skin, and I always get compliments on it.

  9. I am not wearing anything right now (well, not on my nails, that is, before you get the wrong impression). I took off my nail polish this afternoon. I was wearing Revlon’s new Gray Suede nail enamel, a pretty beige nude.

    I’m wearing OPI Gel in Cajun Shrimp. It’s a bright red with a bit of orange in it. I hardly ever wear anything other than gel because regular polish just doesn’t last long enough on me for it to be worth it. I have to go to salons for my manicures because I’m so bad at painting my right hand with my left. πŸ™ This means more often than not, my nails are bare. But my graduation from law school was a special occasion I thought deserved a manicure even if it cost me $30!

  11. Ellen says:

    Guerlain in Champs-Elysees! Love the shiny finish, staying-power, and color! It will be in my fingers more often than not this summer πŸ™‚

  12. Trisha says:

    That’s a pretty shade, Karen!

    I’ve got on Pixi nail polish in Mother of Pearl, but it’s incredibly chipped. I should have given myself a manicure days ago…

    Shh, don’t tell anyone! πŸ˜‰

  13. Stacie says:

    I am wearing Essie Buy me a cameo on my fingernails. I normally only get a few days wear out of any brand but I found this stuff at WalMart the other day called Nail-Aid 3 minute artificials and I used it as a base and top coat,my nails look really good,going on 6 days now.

  14. GKitty says:

    I almost never wear polish on my fingers any more–I’m just too rough on them (boo). My toes are another story, though… I feel as naked if my toes aren’t painted as I would without makeup, LOL. All last month (and with only ONE touch-up, Holy Cow!) I rocked Essie’s Play Date (a *gorgeous* medium lavender, and the only lavender shade that’s EVER looked good on my cool, uber-pale skin), and right now they’re sporting Essie’s Mojito Madness (a cool-toned jade green).

  15. Dominique says:

    On toes : Essie Tour de Finance, one of my fav. Essie polishes, it’s so bright !
    on my hands : nothing at all

  16. Kim says:

    That’s great wear time for no base or top coat (for fingernails, at least). I have naked nails today, as usual. πŸ™‚

  17. Monique says:

    between polishes today, tonight I will likely be putting on Orly Rage… love that rose gold!

  18. Stephanie Smith says:

    I’m wearing China Glaze’s Gothic Lolita, a nice shimmery purple. I had given my nails a break for a month because my cuticles were being torn up with nail polish remover. But I love having my nails painted!

  19. Jennifer says:

    I alternated Essie’s Bikini So Teeny and Avenue Maintain, with Emily by DIFFERENT Dimension on my ring fingers. I LOVE Emily!!
    I have Morning Glory by Cult Nails on my toes.

  20. Beverly Johnson says:

    OPIÒ€¦.Purple-Opous (NL G03)…

  21. Jennifer says:

    Those White mani’s are in!

  22. Monica P says:

    Oh, I didn’t know tom ford had nail polish! Nice color, I love light colors on my finger nails.

    I just took off Essie’s In The Cab-Ana and I really liked it- now I’m sporting some CND solar oil on my cuticles before I decide to repaint!

    I am wearing Chanel’s Azure and I love it! Reminds of the Caribbean Ocean…

  26. Megan says:

    Not wearing any now, but I loved the polish I wore this weekend so much I think I’ll mention it. Zoya Piaf! It was the best shimmery yellow for my dark skin πŸ™‚

  27. I’m wearing Essie’s Where’s My Chauffeur with a stripe of Aruba Blue and a stripe of the chartreuse shade from Revlon’s Monet Monet Nail Art Expressionist duo πŸ™‚

  28. I’m wearing one of the new Clinique lacquers, color Happy! Not so easy to apply, but what a beautiful color.

  29. Heidi says:

    This week I’m wearing Nicole by OPI’s Nothing Kim-pares to Blue, a beautiful dusty faded denim type color. While it horrifies me that it’s a part of the Kardashian collection, I just think of the name and how it relates to the Sinead O’Connor song, which was written by Prince, and then I feel much better, and cooler!

  30. Jenn S. says:

    I am wearing CoverGirl Outlast nail polish (first time trying this line- liking it so far!) in Mint Mojito on my fingers. It is sooo not a green like the name implies, but a great turquoise. Looks good on my fair skin and blue nails make me happy. I have absolutely no real idea what’s on my toes. It’s an orangey-coral and I think maybe it’s a Sonia Kashuk polish?? I am embarrassed by how many polishes I have and probably 10-12 of them are corals! It’s a fave of mine for spring and summer. Changing to a bright summery pink tomorrow (toes) πŸ™‚

  31. Felis says:

    I have on China Glaze Smoke and Ashes, a dark green glass-fleck shimmer, with a coat of green and blue color shift flakies by Sinful Colors in Green Ocean over the top for some flash. I hope it holds up for another few days as I’m going on a two-week solo road trip tomorrow and I won’t have the chance to change it until Monday!

  32. Michelle Teixeira says:

    This seriously reminds me of OPI Kyoto Pearl which I own. I guess if I am going to dish out TF money I expect more. I layer Kyoto Pearl over dark creamy shades to give some contrast and some odd version of depth.

  33. Cristy says:

    I’m wearing Zoya Faye! It’s a lovely Purple pink with Rose gold shimmer!! I like so much Zoya, last week I was wearing Happi another Beautiful color! I must say I never thought of buying a 8dlls nail polish! In my opinion lately the beauty industry has raised prices a lot! Because of the masive demand! But this brand worths every cent! Non Toxic it’s the best! πŸ˜‰

  34. Lorraine says:

    Hmmm…. this Tom Ford polish has been getting sort of poor reviews. Too bad since a white nail is very on-trend for summer. I really want to try a Tom Ford polish- I should have paid attention when Burnt Topaz LE came out last spring- that color is so me. Viper looks nice, too.

    Today I practiced chevron moon free-hand – skills are getting better- with Rescue Beauty Lounge Bruised on top of a base of Sally Hansen Complete in Soy Latte- gorgeous camel color. Pretty happy with result. Time to topcoat!
