What Are You Wearing on Your Nails Today?

Published in: Just For Fun, Nails

TGIF, rockstars! Congrats on making it to the weekend, *raises teacup.* Just a quick polish check in — I’m wearing China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy ($6.50) on my fingers and toes, ’cause I want to pretend it’s summer. How about you?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.S. Speaking of nail polish, Illamasqua’s hosting a contest to create their next hot Nail Varnish colors.

    I was wearing “Trance” by Ginger & Liz (got it painted while at a NYFW lounge) but I forgot to grab it (ugh!!) so I just had OPI “My Private Jet” done yesterday and it’s pretty close.

  4. Niki says:

    Well, since it was swatch city yesterday, a whole rainbow of colors: one of the new Color Club polishes, Take Me To Your Chateau, a couple of the Essence polishes that are now at ULTA – have you heard of these yet? They’re a (I believe) German brand, the polishes are super cute and bright, and only .99 ! I bought six and tried out Pool Party and Check Me Out, and then I also have Rimmel Pulsating on my thumbs! Well. I’ve been a bit busy!

    I’m wearing Sinful’s Mint Apple and I luv luv luv this shade of green that goes with my skin tone. All the other mint green polishes out there look too chalky on me.

  8. Kylah says:

    I’m wearing “Do you lilac it?” by OPI.
    Its really subtle and sort of pastel-ish. It’s a nice alternative because I always wear light pinks :)

  9. Steph B says:

    I’m wearing OPI Moon Over Mumbai. Love this shimmery light grey.

  10. Stephanie says:

    I’m wearing Zoya-Zara on my nails today. :)

    I painted my nails last night – Essie Mademoiselle – sheer and simple. Was going to paint them NARS – Orgasm but it’s too orangey-pink. I think I’ll wait till Summer and keep it for a pedicure shade.

    I love that color on you!

  12. Carey says:

    Orly – Mirror Mirror. Can gray be fun? Oh yes it can, I’m loving it.

  13. Katie says:

    Chanel’s “Vendetta”…it felt like a purple day!

  14. Emily says:

    I went simple as well, Essie Rock Candy. There’s just something about it, maybe it’s the shine. Happy weekend, everyone!

  15. Didi says:

    I’m wearing Illmasqua DWS because it’s cloudy n grey outside and made me think of this polish :)

  16. Tekoa says:

    I’m wearing Suzi Says Feng Shui by OPI. Its a good transition colour for winter-hoping-for-spring .

  17. kirsty says:

    Asos Paint ‘Mary-Kate’. I dislike the celebrity name theme that goes along with these polishes :/

  18. Karen B says:

    A layer of OPI’s Melon of Troy covered by a layer of OPI’s MOD-ern girl. It’s a pretty combo :)

    I’m wearing MAC Imperial Splendour from the Spring Colour 3 Forecast. I hate how it took 4 coats to get an even color, but other than that, it’s pretty awesome.

  24. Marina says:

  25. Um yeah… can I have permission to just sleep through the next couple months til summer?!? Cause I am DONE with the cold and the sweaters! The idea of new fall sweaters is always fun at first… Now, I miss the tank tops and strappy heels! That deliciously summery color looks really great on your skin, Karen!

  44. pinksoysauce says:

    Essie’s Status Symbol, from the 2009 spring collection, I believe. I’m just like you, wearing an inappropriate-for-winter color! I live in Colorado, where we hardly have a spring, so my nails are probably the closest we’ll have to spring until summer finally hits lol.

  45. Rebecca says:

    Sally Hansen – I think it’s called Lightning. It’s a banana yellow and it makes me happy :D Especially when everything is so dull and grey outside.
    Thanks for letting us know about the Illamasqua competition! I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve seen a color and thought “I wish they made a nail polish like that.” So this is right up my alley ^_^

    On my left thumb I have OPI Absolutely Alice (showing it to the girls on my swim team, since blue and gold are our school colors, and I’m trying to start a pre-meet toenail painting tradition).

    On my toes I have chipping OPI Mad as a Hatter (it’s held up GREAT for 2 weeks, today it finally started to chip a bit).

    So, both will change within the next few hours. I’m thinking Orly Snowcone for my toes (with a shimmer over it) and Cotton Candy for my tips.

  47. Keerthi says:

    I can’t wait to buy that one when it comes out! I’m currently wearing OPI La Boheme and unfortunately, I’m not really feeling it.
