What Are You Wearing on Your Nails?

Published in: Just For Fun, Nails

Rise and shine, morning glory. πŸ™‚ TGIF! After feeling like I caught up on sleep last night, I felt like wearing something bright on my nails today and picked Milani’s Neon Nail Lacquer in Awesome Orange ($5), one of the eight colors in their Neon Nail Lacquer collection that came out a couple months ago.

LOVE the texture… It’s so thin and easy to apply but still produces an even pigmentation. That’s me wearing three coats in the picture up there (I kinda rushed through ’em). Nice solid opacity.


How about you? What are you sporting on your fingers and/or toes?

    Hypnotic by Hard Candy on my toes. It’s a pretty peachy pink sparkly color

  2. Diana says:

    OPI DS Coronation, its one of their new Designer series colors and its a silver shimmery shade with a dust of glitter. I love it cause the glitter in it is so fine that it just gives off a pretty sparkle without the preteen chunky glitter look! LOL

  3. Kasey says:

    I’m currently rocking CalGel πŸ™‚ in an almost bridal design…..

    Essie’s Playa del Platinum from the Resort Collection. It’s so cute and khaki/gray…it looks like melted sand.

  7. SallyMonstrosity says:

    Fingers: Black Cherry Chutney underneath a light (very glittery) layer of Holiday Glow
    Tootsies: french tips…boooooring

    • Karen says:

      You’re so lucky you can get away with french tips on your toes! I have very long toes and when I do french tips on ’em they look like monkey feet, oy!

  8. Alison says:

    At this very moment nothing, I’m about to do a mani. i’m not sure what to put on yet. I’m thinking of wearing Chanel Lilac Sky. I wish my new Chanels or Essies had arrived today, I’m waiting on Chanel Illusion d’Or, Gold Lame & Black Velvet and Essie Turquoise & Caicos, Splash of Grenadine and Lapis of Luxury. Plus I can’t wait to order Chanel Nouvelle Vague and Riviera in the next couple of days when they are finally released here in the UK!

    As you can see I have small nail polish hoarding problem!

  13. YJ says:

    YES! I have a similar Milani shade, and its such a fun color! =) I’m wearing OPI’s My Daddy’s the King on my nails, which I lurrrvvv… it’s a nude-ish pink with a slight shimmer. And OPI’s Have a Tempura Tan-Trum on my toes! Hope you have a rad weekend, Karen!

    • Karen says:

      OPI has the best names. I kinda wish I thought up Tempura Tan-Trum, ha ha ha!

      You have a great weekend, too! Got any exciting plans?

      • YJ says:

        Haha! My friend made fun of me because I looked at every name under the bottle in the salon before picking a color… =P

        Just some family coming to town, which should be crazy with all the kids running around! You?

          Names are a big thing for me. If the name isn’t right I won’t even attempt to go there. πŸ™‚

          Tomorrow I’m going into SF for something called WordCamp (a seminar for WordPress bloggers), which should be fun. On Sunday I’ll probably just chill at home and do errands… kinda boring, but honestly, I don’t mind. I like having the downtime!

          • YJ says:

            Yes! I agree! And OPI definitely takes the cake for best names =)

            Ooooo, that sounds interesting! I hope you learn lots of stuff at the seminar! And I (most of the time) prefer boring weekends to catch up on some rest and relax too. So I hope you have an uber relaxing, uber fun and informative weekend!!! =D

    Im wearing Yellow Kitty by Sally Hansen..which I want to love, but don’t! I put it on last night and it took 4 coats, because it was so watery! I’ve used Sally before, so I was unpleasantly surprised! And it’s already icky looking today, so I will be taking it off. I am however rocking Urban Decay Apocalypse on my toes and loving it!

  15. Tessa says:

    I’m wearing orange too! Today is a national holiday in the Netherlands and orange is the Dutch symbol, so everything is orange today!

  16. Rica says:

    Revlon Minted, how I love this colour, I’ve been wearing this a lot. I guess I need a backup since it’s limited edition. But I’m feeling a bit bored about it, so I’m planning to get some new OPI or ZOYA nail polishes =D.

    The neon orange is so stunning! Too bad I don’t have the courage to rock neon colours.

  17. Jordyn says:

    I have Essie A-List (my fave red shade) on my fingers and OPI’s Lucky Lucky Lavender on my toes. I don’t match at all!

  18. Jula says:

    OPI Jade is the New Black–I’m thinking of changing them today because they’re all chipped, but I love the color!

  19. Ambrrr says:

    Essie’s BBF Bestboy Friend on fingers, and Chinchilly on mah toes. BBF gives my fingers a nice, fresh feel without just putting a top coat or something on.

    I’m wearing MAC’s Black Enough on my fingers and Sephora for OPI’s What’s a Tire Jack? on my thumbs with shiny tips on the matte nails and matte tips on the shiny thumbs. And I’ve got Orly foil fx in Shine (the silver one) on my toes.

  21. Trisha says:

    Fingernails: A white Sally Hanson nail polish with an opalescent Luzier nail polish on top. It’s bright and light. I like it. ‘Twas an experiment.

    Toenails: A sparkly reddish-pink from an unknown generic brand.

    Nope, I don’t match.

    On toes, it’s Suzy Says Feng Shui from OPI’s Hong Kong Collection. It’s three weeks in and has held up very well!

    That orange is HOT!

    Unfortunately I’m giving my nails a break from the rainbow game. But something I’ve really been liking is my Healthy Hoof cream. That stuff is bomb! I wear slippers a lot and I hate it when your toe nails ain’t did and they look kinda ashy and dead. Putting on the cream before I head out of the door makes my toes look nice and fresh, like just got out of the shower fresh. Love it!

  38. Tiera says:

    MAC’s Vintage Vamp, nothin’ on the toes πŸ™‚ TGIF!

  39. Marina says:

    OPI Light My Sapphire, a sophisticated bluish anthracite with fine shimmer. I love such colours – almost black, so people around think i just wear black most of the time πŸ˜€ Colour-blind fools, they’re all different! πŸ˜€

  40. lexi says:

    both essie!
    hands – splash of grenadine – LOVE
    toes – swept of my feet

    both colors have put me in a total Spring mood!!

  41. Beth says:

    Waters Edge by L’Oreal, i think that is the name anyway. It is my wedding color πŸ™‚

  42. Kristine says:

    Essie “Status Symbol” on my toes – a bright pink, and a dark bluish slate grey polish by the Scandinavian brand Depend on my fingers. It feels refreshing to wear dark colours in spring πŸ˜€

  43. chibu74 says:

    spiced latte by maybelline πŸ™‚ love it

  44. Rachael says:

    Chipped Chick Flick Cherry by OPI. Which reminds me I need to take the polish of my fingers. And also chipped Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not also by OPI on my toes. Too bad I can’t spring for a mani/pedi πŸ™ yay for being a broke college student.

  45. Amy says:

    Nails: OPI Chapel of love + China Glaze Preppy pink (which has glitters)
    – I feel like they compliment each other really well as i am into glitters lately.. hahaha!

    Toes: Orly Super natural

    although my favorite nail polishes are essie…. but chapel of love is really really pretty its my current fave!

  46. Lindsey says:

    On nail and toes, Chanel’s Particuliere. I finally got it and I love it πŸ™‚

    Hey there! New here…I’ve been reading for a few weeks now. I love your blog! I’m wearing Essie’s “Chubby Cheeks.” Feeling the coral/orange thing at the moment…

  48. Kiran says:

    On my toes I have OPI charged up cherry but my fingers are bare (shocking!)

  49. Anna says:

    Russian Roulette by Essie on my fingers and toes! LOVE THIS COLOR! It’s the perfect red!

  50. Andrea says:

    I’m just wearing For Audrey on my toes… Hehe I tend to start painting my nails really late at night so didn’t get to my fingers. (Plus it’s a strategy to do my toes first, because I don’t want to ruin my painted nails by clipping/filing toe-nails after :P)

  51. Heather says:

    illamasqua Muse.

  52. Sharon says:

    Right now I’ve got on Nicole by OPI’s Global Beauty… a medium blueish green with shimmer (although it looks less shimmery than what the bottle would indicate). It’s my first time trying the brand, so hopefully it will last a while without chipping and/or tip wear.

    That orange looks gorgeous on you. Love warm colours, but unfortunately they don’t look very good on me!

  53. I’m wearing SpaRitual “crystal eyes” – a creamy ocean blue color. I love it!


    It’s from the new The SpaRitual Kaleidoscope collection that launches on May 1st 2010.

  54. Toni says:

    On my fingers – nothing at the moment, but I plan to polish them this weekend with an OPI polish called I Pink I Love You. Got a pedicure last week and I think it’s called Por Amour (or something like that), and it’s an OPI polish.

  55. Carrie says:

    On my nails, I’m wearing Orly Teeny Bikini. It’s more corally than I expected, but I really like it. I have OPI’s Dress to Empress on my toes.

  56. Kat says:

    OPI Jade is the new black. I love green! Feel like I’m wearing spring

  57. Lauren says:

    For Audrey by China Glaze on my fingers and toes! It’s a Tiffany/robin’s egg blue that feels very spring-y πŸ™‚

    I was wearing For Fun, by MAC, but I was so bored I picked it all off. 😑

  61. Zeni says:

    China Glazes LOL for my nails. It’s a gorgeous purple holo.

    Sally Hansens Fire Opal for my toes. It’s a nice pale shade that doesn’t distract, but still makes my toes look like I put a little effort into them.

  62. Liza says:

    OPI’s Rumple’s Wiggin’. As far as I can see it hasn’t been released yet(at least on the OPI website) so I was happily surprised that my salon had it in.
