Did these last night and they're already chipped as you can see, some bafoon stepped on my toes during salsa class and chipped it. It took ages as well. So they're a mess because I tried to patch them up when I got home.

Ah well, it's Nubar's Hot Fuschia and the purple is a Zoya one but I can't remember the shade name. Stuck the gems on with seche vite and then covered them in that and they're holding pretty well considering my feet got stomped on.

Fingers are Models Own's Lemon Meringue, the green is Top Shop's Green Room. I can't decide if I like the yellow, after 2 coats it's a little streaky still. But I really like the green with the yellow polka dots.

So the Color Club polish I got is still showing nail lines after three coats. I put glitter over it because I wasn't confident that four coats would be enough. And the only glitter I have that matches is a gold, green, and red christmas micro glitter. So my nails look like forking Christmas. Sigh.

Baps - I like your mani and your pedi, shame you got stomped on!

I asked one page back but seeing as we're on a new page, does anyone have a fave Orly top coat? I read some reviews online and they all sounded bad :( I want one while I wait for my Zoya to arrive - ta!

Face Stockholm for J. Crew in Aranciata and Milani 3D Holographic in HD. I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out. Three coats of each made it pretty much opaque. The neon Face Stockholm that I have all dry matte, which is kind of weird to me. I put on a glossy top coat so it gets shiny, but I'm thinking about trying a matte top coat. Something about matte neon seems like a fun contrast.

I LOVE the yellow mani with the polka dots, baps!!!

Kitteh, never used an Orly top coat, sorry!

Does anyone know if Essence brand nail polishes are vegan?

My nails are bare at the moment. In fact, I had to go to the podiatrist yesterday because my left big toenail has been discolored ever since I had an in-office procedure to fix an ingrown toenail, and I wanted to know what's up. Well, the podiatrist informed me that they gave me a nail fungus (?!???!) and then proceeded to cut my toenail back so only half of it is there, the top part is just skin. I'm to apply an antifungal treatment that is quite like nail polish, and the infection should clear up within a few months. I can't wear any nail polish while I'm treating my nail, and it's prime pedicure season! Boo. I could always paint the other nails and cover up my freaky nail with a band-aid, I suppose.

They gave you a nail fungus at the podiatrists?! That's horrible!!

I'm currently wearing BL Trout Pout. I tried to pink it up with a coat of Teddy Girl between coats of Trout Pout, but TP was too opaque for it to matter. It might have lightened it up a bit.

Those Julep colors are fun, missmuffcake. So do you get a monthly order from Julep or something?

Yeah, he was all, "Oh, heh, looks like we gave you a nail fungus." Then he just came at my foot with an electric sander-type instrument, no warning, to sand down my nail as it was quite thick. This is from the podiatrist who decorates his patient exam room with cut-out magazine pictures of hot dogs. I asked him about it last time, and he just responded with, "I like hot dogs." I was wearing my "Vegan" necklace, an Herbivore teeshirt, reading a book about Farm Sanctuary, and had my messenger bag with me, which is covered with vegan pins and buttons. I was going to speak to him about his food choices, but he had sharp instruments and my foot in his hand, so I stayed quiet.

Some of the Essence polishes are vegan and some aren't. They have a PDF of the ingredients for all their products on their website, and the nail polishes are split up depending on their ingredients, it's really confusing though because some of the colors have two separate ingredient lists possible.

Has anyone been able to read the ingredients for the new WnW Megalast polishes? I saw them at Target and tried scanning the ingredients sans glasses and got a headache. They look nice.

I put on Chanel Island last night. I really love this polish and it's my favorite of the Summer colors--kind of funny since its the one I was going to skip.

It looks old fashioned and blah in the bottle, but on the nail, especially in sunlight, it's a glorious conch shell peach to pink golden duochrome. I was admiring it while driving yesterday. It was ok though since stopped on 95 there was nothing else to do.

It's a little sheer though so it needs three coats if nail line annoys you. I think it's actually partly because the duochrome flash looks different at the nail line.

Tl;dr awesome, unexpected color

went for pedis with one of my advisees today and we tried the aveda institute. it was a really great experience all around (and relatively cheap, $25 for a spa pedi, and they don't accept tips) but when i got home i realized she didn't do that fantastic of a job. sad trombone. AND for some reason on one of my nails, the polish wiped right off when i touched my toe! this was like 1.5 hours after the fact--very strange! i found something close-ish to cover it with, but it's a bit of a bummer. oh well, you live and learn i guess.

anyhow, i am once again wearing OPI because it was an aveda place, and this time it's vampsterdam (they didn't have russian navy, ha ha).

i'm going to do my hands tonight to make up for my weird pedi experience, and i think i'm going to do my very first accent nail. (so daring!) i'm not really in the mood to wear zoya mikka or sloane (my two colors that are probably closest to vampsterdam), so i think i will stick with my original plan: a england lady of the lake with an ascalon accent nail.

Last week I bought some Orly polish for Drossie's b'day pressie and I got one for myself while there because it came with a free sample of Top 2 Bottom!

Orly La Playa and Top 2 Bottom for me, and for Drossie: Charged Up and Green with Envy

Sally's is clearancing some of the spring lines, so CG's Electropop and ORLY's Cool Romance (I think that's what it was called) are on sale. I didn't get any ORLY, but the CG's were $3.50.

I buffed my nails & pushed back the cuticles. A few of my nails are pretty scuffed since taking the gel polish off...:/

We were just talking about broken toe nails and now one of mine is broken, again. I took my polish off last week and noticed a line across one of my big toe nails and then realised it's split all the way across and is only just holding on. I stubbed it today and now I think it's going to fall off, ag! It took forever to grow back last time and all my nails are painted except for that one, it looks crapola.

Any way, I found Orly at another store today for the cheapest I've ever seen it here, $4.99! The selection was really limited (about 5-6 colours) so I grabbed 3: Walk Down the Aisle, Sweet Temptation and Take A Chance. WDtA and TaC are super sheer, but they might be good for layering.

I'm wearing 1 coat of Sweet Temptation (I was in a rush and it's so opaque so 1 was enough)

I did these last week but the toes are still going strong! Fingers were a chipped mess after the weekend so I repainted.

Toes - NYX Black and Nubar White Tip. (Another therapist asked me if these were Minx yesterday, I won't like, it gave me secret chufties!!)
Image

Fingers - Nubar Hot Fuschia and Nubar La Femme (french pink) over, with pink gems.
