Beauty product reviews, makeup tips & news from your friendly neighborhood beauty addict
Published in: Just For Fun, Nails
An affair to remember… That’s how I’m looking at my nails this morning. I’m wearing MAC Light Affair on my fingers ($12, from the Love Lace collection) and Chanel Jade on my toes.
How ’bout you?

Hi Karen! Right now I’m wearing a peachy bright coral shade. Don’t ask me the brand cause I don’t know it. My best friend gave it to me a couple of days ago just to try it. She said it has a long-lasting power considering it’s a no-name brand and it’s price was around 2 $. I will make a review about it soon, cause I’ve never seen such a cheap product to be so cool
I like the color of your MAC Light Affair nail polish, but it’s more like a pasty texture or I’m wrong?

gorgeous! I am wearing Illamasqua – Milf today. **LOVE***
.-= Elaine’s last blog post… Ride The Khrome Wave =-.
I’m wearing Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Pronto Purple with small white and pink Migi Nail Art Pen flowers across the tips like a French.
My toes are naked! Very unusual for me but I felt they need a break.
I am strangely nail polish free today. Was swatching last night and then didn’t have the energy to re-paint my nails, lol! Light affair looks great on you!

I’m not sure how i feel about this color. Now, I’ve seen the Chanel Jade and I love that.
Sometimes I look at colors like this and just yearn for a bit more depth. That being said, I’d have to see it in person before I could make real assessment.
Oh and usually I have my toes painted at all times. But I also felt like they
needed a break and have left them polish free. I’ll be doing them in in OPI
Absinthe Makes the Heart grow Fonder”, sometime this week.
I LOVE Light Affair. I’m wearing it myself right now. This was my first MAC nailpolish buy and I think I need to go purchase a backup since it’s LE. I’ve heard how in general their nailpolishes are difficult to apply and can get streaky (??) but I had no trouble with applying this at all. In fact I found it the easiest to apply between some of the light Essie and OPI colors I have.
Something by elf cosmetics. I so badly want to wear Light Affair but can’t seem to get it to work on me! It’s either too thin and streaky or too thick and blobby… Help me, Karen!
I just got a new nail polish I’ve never heard of and I totally love it! The colour reminds me of Chanel Particuliere

I’ve got China Glaze DV8 on mah toes, and NARS Orgasm on my fingertips.
Essie Mint Candy Apple
No polish on my fingers! I almost never get manicures. I am also not wearing any polish on toes, but I am probably getting a pedicure in the next week or two. It has just been so cold, it seemed pointless!
I always wear a french manicure. Always classic, never out of fashion…
Im wearing Sephora by OPI in Access 24/7. Its a juicy pink!
Like Elaine, I too am wearing Illamasqua’s Milf. So pretty!
Wardrobe Change by OPI for Sephora. A friend passed it on since someone gave it to her and she had something very similar.
OPI Tickle My France-y on my tips (my mannequin hands shade) and SH Insta-Dri in Pronto Purple on my toes.
Zoya Astra over China Glaze Don’t Touch My Tiara on my toes. Lippmann Collection Happy Birthday on my hands. I’m going to do my nails in MAC Coconut Ice later today though
.-= Christy’s last blog post… MAC Lightful Skincare Review =-.
I just removed my nail polish, but I was wearing Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City . I can’t stop staring at it – it’s like silver foil. I can’t find it on their website, but it’s a perfect duplicate of Trixie by Zoya. And it only costed 2 bucks .
essie lollipop on my fingers (*love*) and nothing on my toes… i don’t bother painting them when they’re stuffed into socks and boots all winter long. it’s a waste of pretty!
Nothing today, but I have been wearing OPI (for Sephora) On Stage.
I’m wearing a Nicole by OPI pink… I don’t know what its actually called, but I call it barbie doll pink. Its super chipped and worn off though… I think my hands look like about grade 7 today, although in grade 7 it would have been black, not pink.
On my toes I still have christmas colors, Nicole by OPI again, their seasonal red and green.
I love that MAC Light Affair, cool color!
.-= Briana’s last blog post… DePhoMo 2009 catchup! =-.
Rimmel Underground Play Fast in Camouflage, although at this point it is super chipped and sad-looking.
Still doing the OPI holiday thing, with “Glove you so much” on tips and toes… thinking about a bright purple or pink for this evening’s manicure at home, though.
I’m wearing China Glaze’s Emerald Sparkle. It’s the first time I’m wearing a true green polish (there’s MAC’s Whirlwind which doesn’t really count) and I’m liking it.
i’m wearing light affair too! i’ve been wondering for the past week exactly what color it is haha
I have french tip acrylics on my hands and Baby Goth Girl from MAC on my toes
How’s your day coming along?
.-= Vanessa H’s last blog post… Parakeet Eyes =-.
Ocean Love Potion by OPI for Sephora. It’s the perfect color and quality.
Wearing China Glaze’s For Audrey on my fingers (even the the formula for this polish is the devil and I hate CG’s polish brush, the colour is to die for) and OPI’s Berry Rosy on my toes, which is a ridiculously shimmery hot pink
I just applied China Glaze’s For Audrey on my fingers this morning. Loves the Tiffany Blue!!!
I did my nails last night, in Orly Sand Castle……I do need to get myself a good top coat…any recommendations?
My toes…..don’t even get me started…..I am in the MAJOR NEED for a pedicure, but I don’t budget for those until spring…..it’s too cold here to show my feets, so they just get covered with socks until warmer weather hits…..
I’ve got Essie – Chinchilly on mah fingers and OPI – OPI Ink on my toes!
I have Pixie Dust by Orly on my fingers and some no name beauty supply polish on my toes. It was a really pretty bluish-purple color and I had nothing like it in my collection. I don’t even remember the name of the shade and I broke the bottle:( Hopefully I will be able to find a replacement.
I love Chanel Jade it’s such a perfect green on me but at the moment I am wearing Chanel Ballerina on my tips and Chanel English rose on my toes. As you know I am Chanel Fiend and can’t wait till Particuliere is released here in the UK.
i’m wearing revlon’s midnight affair. it’s so pretty! it’s dark blue w/ blue glitter if you stare closely. i think from far away it looks kinda black. i got it 75% off from cvs so it was only $1.25
I’m wearing China Glaze’s Frostbite on my fingers, bright deep blue, LOVE!!! I like color on my fingers, but I don’t have a dress code being a Stay at home Mom. I’m wearing something by OPI for Sephora on my toes, it’s silver glitter. Love it too!
I am really digging the soft white nail polish your sporting.
I’m wearing Golden Wine by Avon and I’m in LOVE! it is so pretty and shimmery.
I’m jealous you have Jade – I wish I’d grabbed it when it came out. But today I have Color Club Pure Energy on my toes and Sephora by OPI Domestic Goddess on the tips.
Ohh, I like that MAC Light Affair!
This may sound bad, especially for another beauty blogger, but I haven’t worn nail polish in quite a while. I keep meaning to give myself a French manicure, but just haven’t.
Thanks for the reminder! I really need to get on that.

I have China Glaze Golden Meringue on my fingers.
OPI for Sephora – I’m With Brad – but honestly, it’s wearing terribly – I am sticking with China Glaze from now on – I can get at least 7 to 10 days before it chips.
I’m wearing Essie’s Tomboy No More (my perfect red) on my tips, and Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Black Russian on the toes. But your almost-white is inspiring me – I may have a change of heart!
Dorothy Who? on tips, Louvre Me Louvre Me Not on toes.
Currently I still have OPI Senorita Rose-alita on my tips AND toes… but I’m definitely overdue for a change-up. I wasn’t feeling very well last weekend so I didn’t get to do my weekly manicure… maybe tonight or tomorrow though.

Sally Hansen HD in Gigabyte. Gorgeous shimmery peach but I’m thinking it is a better spring shade.
China Glaze Naked on my fingers and nothing on my toes. The horror!
Silver Purple by Dior, I ADORE it!! Such a perfect colour, reminds me of the storm…
Kisses to my sweet Tabs!
And I’m wearing….
Essie Sugar Daddy on my nails and OPI Dulce de Leche on my toes! Clean and pretty!
Just had my nails done this afternoon with Light Affair!! I LOVE IT!
BTW-Love your blog!!
My current favorite OPI shade:
Over the Taupe
taking a break from my usual dark blues/emerald green polishes!
oh and I got Zoya “Quinn” on my toes – a very pretty dark pink almost similar to OPI’s Manicurist of Seville
I’ve got RBL Mismas on my toes, and I just put RBL Grunge on my fingers.
I am wearing OPI’s Do You Know Jacques!!! It’s a gorgeous neutral shade with a hint of purple. Love love love!!!
Sinful Colors in Bali Mist… It’s the closest I’ve ever found shade-wise to a weird knock-off brand (georgia peach I think?) color that I had when I was about sixteen, called Acid Burn. BEST COLOR OF MY LIFE. Kind of a purpleish pink, with gold and blue undertones in shimmer.
Bright orange – some Sally Beauty supply brand polish, with 2 stripes of black near the tip of the nail.
I am wearing Urban Ouffiters Matte Green 7.

Chanel Black Satin, still adore it! I plan on getting Particulière as soon as possible!
MAC light affair on my fingernails and a layer of purple over a layer of blue (both from korean budget brand skin food) that, together, are a perfect dupe for chanel vendetta on my toes ^^
OPI Done Out in Deco (warm weather color wishful thinking) OPI Siberian Nights on toes.
I’m wearing Nubar Jewel on my left hand and Nubar Prize on the right! LOL, I’m reviewing them for my blog right now, but later I’ll just be wearing Jewel.
OPI Princesses Rule! on my hands and OPI Russian Navy on my toes. It’s time for a polish change. Think I’m going all red tonight.
As of the moment, on my fingers (and thumb : P ) I’m wearing an OPI basecoat and Essie’s Chinchilli. On my toes I’m rockin’ the OPI basecoat (love that stuff) and OPI Russian Navy.
