More manicures

19 Jul

I have decided to stop numbering these manicures because I always lose track. Here are some fairly recent ones:

Sinful ColorsSeaweed:

This went on very smooth in two coats, and guess what? It’s a dupe for OPI Stranger Tides!

OPICome to Poppy:

This is from OPI’s Nice Stems collection. I wanted this mostly for the name, but I absolutely love this color. It does look a bit frosty with the flash, but it is a very nice summer color. This is two coats.

EssieMeat Balls

This is a “black label” Essie that I have been wanting for a while. It was hard to find because it is certainly mislabeled a lot! Some websites list it as Meet Balls while others have it as Meat Balls. Well I found it on eBay and the official name is Meat Balls! This is a beautiful mauve colored nail polish with some gold flecks in it. This I think, is 3 coats.

Wet N WildMagic Trident

This is from WnW’s Mermaid’s Cove collection. Magic Trident is a bright, frosty orange but it is beautiful! I think it is such a fun color and definitely a good pedicure color as well. This is two coats.

And finally,

EssieChubby Cheeks

I have this on my toes and hands right now, but I don’t have an actual manicure picture. I found Chubby Cheeks at Ulta. Looking at Essie.com, it doesn’t seem like it is a part of their permanent line. (It says it is unavailable) You can certianly find it for cheap at Amazon.com, but I happened to be at Ulta and I needed a few more dollars to make a coupon work. This color is a dusty coral and according to Essie.com it is a creamy bright red-orange sunet. Okay, I am not sure if it looks like that on my nails though. I want to do a comparison one day of Color Club‘s Love Links and this color. A friend of mine bought China Glaze‘s Life Preserver and she says it is very similar to this color. (She has this Essie too). I don’t have that color, but I will see if I can borrow it.

Now I don’t know what color to paint my nails tomorrow! I have been very annoyed with my nails lately. Chipping starts the same day now! My nails are just splitting once again and I don’t think Nail Envy is helping anymore!
