What Are You Wearing on Your Nails?

Published in: Just For Fun, MAC Makeup, Nails

Not that it was hot here today, but I felt like something warm on my nails, so I went with Scorcher. It’s the orangey red from the MAC To The Beach collection (the other color in the collection is the avocado-like In the Buff). I wore Scorcher on my tips and Chanel Jade on my toes.


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

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I think I’m calling it a night — rather, I think I’ll step away from the computer and go grab a bite to eat with El Hub. Whatever you do, have a great night. Treat yourself to something for desert! πŸ™‚ Tabs says hi. I know he wants to go to dinner with us… Sorry, tabby.

    Have fun spending time with your hubby and tell Tabs I said “hi”!

    I am wearing Essie’s Anniversary Gala on my fingernails. I like sheer polishes best, because I stink at doing my own nails. This way, if I mess up, it’s less noticeable!

    My toes are naked right now – I think a pedicure is in my future this weekend!

    Since it’s 11:30 p.m. here on the East Coast, I’ll say “goodnight”! I am now off to get some sleep!

  2. SB_Sweetie says:

    OPI’s “Brights Power” Sunny & happy orange.

  3. Angela says:

    OPI Who the Shrek Are You? I’m actually loving it. Of course I have a passion for all things green and chartreuse…

  4. Ashley says:

    OPI fiercely fiona. with OPI flashbulb fuchsia stars over it. :o)

  5. Orly Poison Apple from their last year “Once Upon a Time” Collection from last fall! An old fave πŸ™‚

  6. Glosslizard says:

    I’m wearing a hot coral shade, an old L’Oreal called “Mango-Get-Em”! Amusingly enough, when I went to my MAC store today, the color looked identical to Scorcher in the bottle! I must’ve been subconsciously influenced or something…..

  7. Julbra says:

    BCBGeneration’s “No Diving”; it’s a light blue, I thought it would be a nice dupe for the new Chanel color. I found it at some dinky cosmetic outlet store–it’s pretty!

    I can’t wait to pick up Scorcher! I’m wearing OPI Girls Just Want to Play right now. πŸ™‚

  9. Jen says:

    Sephora by OPI’s Mermaid to Order on my fingernails, and Lippmann’s Purple Rain on my toes. I know, super BRIGHT colors that don’t match each other… or anything else, for that matter. It’s okay, it’s very summery (and it’s been humid here lately!).

    When I thought of Tabs having dinner with you guys, I thought of that Garfield comic where he stows away in the car when Jon and Liz have dinner at a fancy restaurant. Garfield ordered lasagna. πŸ˜€

  10. Maria says:

    I had a bad day (guy issues) so I treated myself to a mani today, and got IDK from the China Glaze OMG collection – I LOVE the holographic look!

    • Sylvie says:

      I love the entire OMG collection! About 4 weeks ago, I went on a China Glaze holo purchasing spree and so I have most of the OMG and Kaleidoscope collection. IDK was my last purchase. I haven’t received it yet (because the seller was sooooo slow to ship) but I’m excited about it. High five for holos!

  11. Jeni says:

    Essie Lapis Of Luxury – it’s a pretty Periwinkle color.

  12. Aparnaa says:

    I’m wearing Vanity Fairest – super sheer pink – on my fingernails…trying to be vaguely professional for office. The real party is on my toes – Bachelorette Bash – bright nuclear pink! I love it!

  13. Krystal says:

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! (Pure Ice, NYX, and Petites.) There are little eyeballs staring up at me from each fingernail (except the thumbs; Shredder is glaring at me)! πŸ˜€

  14. Katrina says:

    I’m wearing OPI Strawberry Margarita on my tips and deciding what color to commit to on my toes for my Florida vacation. I’ve got a lot of pink, red, and coral clothes packed, any suggestions on polish?

  15. Rita says:

    I’m still wearing Essie Turquoise & Caicos I put on on Monday. What a staying power (on me)! Karen, how is Scorcher compared to CG High Hopes and Flip Flop Fantacy? My MAC did not get To the Beach polishes and some other items πŸ™ (yet?).

  16. Nina says:

    Naked tips from the wedding weekend but still have the frenchies on my toes.

    I hope you had a good night. Ours was quiet – got home and the hubs made some tandoori chicken. We nommed, watched Fringe and crashed. πŸ™‚

  17. YJ says:

    Ooooo I love that color! (I’m totally lusting after this new collection of MAC’s!)

    I’m wearing Mod About You by OPI… it’s an opaque light pink… Love it in the summer especially because it makes me look deeeeliciously tan!

  18. Scientific Housewife says:

    I am wearing Zoya Midori but I’m changing it tomorrow πŸ™‚

  19. kirsty says:

    I’m currently debating what to paint my nails. I fancy something green, either Barry M’s Racing Green or Spring Green

    What do you think? πŸ™‚

  20. Baby Girl says:

    I painted my nails with Zoya’s Richelle. Bronzy-gold. It will shine in the sun this weekend.

  21. Val says:

    Hawaiian Orchid by OPI. It’s a really cute light pink with a tint of purple

  22. Indi says:

    China Glaze’s Fifth Avenue on my hands, and OPI Charmed by a Snake on my Toes.

  23. Rosie says:

    tonight is my daughter’s senior prom so we had a manicure party last night. some of the girls used the Sally Hansen HD polishes i won in your giveaway (thanks Karen!!!!!) and some of the others used Sally Hansen’s hard as nails extreme wear in gunmetal and red carpet. They are good, cheap, and last long enough. I’m wearing Black out. why not?

  24. Suji says:

    I’m wearing Sally Hansen Mint Sprint.

    I change my nail color often because it chips so easily (on my tips), even though I wear both a base and top coat!

  25. lexi says:

    Yuck I need a manicure badly! I slapped on OPI – Pearl shade from Hong Kong collection. It’s an easy color to wear and fortunately for my lazy butt it’s not very noticeable when it chips – I mean when it HELLA chips hahahaha

  26. Lisa says:

    DWS by Illamasqua


  27. Sonja says:

    OPI Koala berry on hands and Chanel Dragon, my fav red, on toes!!

    Have a great night Karen!

  28. Michelle says:

    I dropped by Sally’s beauty supply and the lady told me the Finger Paints polishes they have are made for them by OPI. They were 3 for $12 — so I scooped some up!! I am wearing a gorgeous rosy coral shade called “Coral Compliment” — LOVE! I can’t stop looking at my toes πŸ™‚

  29. Sylvie says:

    MAC Originality nail polish (the gold one from PrΓƒΒͺt-à-Papier). I thought of wearing Scorcher yesterday because I had just purchased yet (the collection was launched in France yesterday) but I was more in a gold-mood than a red mood. I’m quite liking Originality.

    I’ve got nothing on my toes since it’s freaking winter again in the middle of May so there’s no point wearing nail polish on my feet since nobody but me’s going to see it.

  30. kind of still in love with OPI You Don’t Know Jacques …that color is lovely though, for Summer!!!

  31. Nicole says:

    Im wearing Swagger, by GINGER+LIZ…super sparkly rose gold color. Love it!!

  32. Casey says:

    OPI Princesses Rule – I had to do a quick mani last night, and this polish is forgiving when it comes to application!

  33. Trude says:

    Oooo I’m so going to have to get that color! πŸ™‚ I’m wearing Sally Hansen Hard as Nails polish in Fuchsia Bling Bling with a quick dry topcoat. It’s been over a week and only minimal chipping! Gotta love it. πŸ™‚

  34. Zoe says:

    No Room for the Blues by OPI πŸ™‚

  35. Katy M says:

    I think the entire To the Beach collex is HOT! I’m wanting both nail colors- even the dirty avacado one!

    Right now I have China Glaze’s Grape Pop on my nails (from the Up In the Air collex). I totally love this purple. It’s just perfect…not too red, not too blue and the perfect cream.

    I’m dying for Sally Hansen’s Hidden Treasure right now but cannot find it here in San Diego to save my life! Ugh!

    Happy Friday, gals!

  40. Trisha says:

    I’ve got on some dark purple nail polish I picked up in the clearance section at Hot Topic. The color doesn’t even have a name, but I like it anyway. It’s turned out to be a lot more durable than some other, more famous nail polish brands.

    What is your favourite orange nail polish? I’m in love with all the ones you’ve posted so far and am desperate to get one for myself, but I can’t choose which one I think looks the best! I’m loving the summery vibe this one gives, but I also love how the YSL one resembles a tic tac..

  52. Aleeya says:

    Hey Karen! I am wearing Sally Hansen HD polish in Spectrum which is a blue based polish with duochrome purple and green fine glitter. I got it from Target for $2.50 on clearance! On my toes I have Wet n Wild Wonder Yellow on my toes which is a yellow/gold shimmer polish. I am keepin it funky and fresh this week lol.
