We're making a new thread so color choices don't get lost in the regular nail polish thread.

We're just going to pick a random color each week and then that's what we use. The idea is born out of the fact that a lot of us have a lot of polish already, so unless you have so little polish that you have none in this color, use something already in your collection! Since it's Saturday I guess we'll go Sunday-Saturday?

I thought it only seemed fitting that for our first week we pour out some polish for calx. I don't know what her exact favorite color is, but I know she really loved Zoya's Charla (mermaid scales, she said) and one of the BL bluey-greens, so week one color is:

Teal/blue-green

This is good timing because I just took my toe polish off. I can't do that very often because it absolutely kills my back. I'm doing Nouvelle Vague.

For fingers, I'm doing Azure or Dior Waterlily (mint green) with a top coat of Chanel Azure (clear glitter/holographic blue top coat). I'm on the fence because Waterlily smells like roses. It really, really smells like roses. I don't know what technology Dior uses to keep the scent lasting and lasting and lasting, but the stupid rose scent outlasts the polish! Some of my students liked it though. A table of girls asked what the smell was when I was helping them because they liked it. They were tickled that it was my nail polish. I had a whole lab table of girls wanting to smell my hands. Hilarious or awkward, I'm not sure.

Here is the color she loved! I believe this one was a China Glaze Four Leaf Clover.

For Audrey is similar too, I think. Not as green maybe, but more people have it.

forkin A! Charla is the best and it totally looks like mermaids. I'm unpacking now, but I'll make sure to find my polishes quickly.

Holy shiitake! I painted my nails Charla this morning and always think "mermaid scales" when I look at it since Calcy dubbed it so.

I really like this idea, mbm.

I am really glad you guys want to do the nail challenge and the colour choice for Calcy. When Isa first posted the photo on Instagram last night I was shocked, even though I only know Calcy from the forum, specifically the polish thread and her love of mermaid-coloured polish, and I think she'd like this. I also like that MBM specified teal plus blue/green because I am pretty sure I remember Calcy mentioning that people have different opinions on what teal is when everyone was painting their nails for the teal cat website and people were using pale greens/blues and other random shades and calling them teal - ha <3

I'm about to have a go at removing my gel mani and then I am off to the craft store to get stuff to do a mani for this challenge!

I also went through the polish thread and found some posts by Calcy where she mentioned liking specific polish shades and I'm listing them in case anyone wants to use ones that she really liked:
A photo of her nails with Novelle Vague and Galahad
A post mentioning Sephora/O.P.I Who Let the Dorks Out, O.P.I Mermaid Tears, and Sinful Colors Happy Endings.
A post that mentions China Glaze Atlantis
A post where she said DL Glitter in the Air blew her mind! And her first posts were about buying DL polishes and loving Across the Universe

I will try waterlily + Henley Regatta for glitter on top. if that doesn't turn out mermaid-y enough I will go with azure.

Thank you mbm, this is a lovely idea.

I used 2 coats of Sinful Colors Gorgeous followed by 3 coats of BL Henley Regatta. On the accent nails I added a layer of top coat and then covered the nails in aqua hex glitter

I'm in! This is just what I needed to motivate me to take off the old, chipping polish that has been on my toes since, well, I don't really remember when. It's been awhile.

I'm doing Sinful Colors Aquamarine on my toes and Happy Ending(thanks to Kitteh's post) on my fingers. I'll try to post pics later, if I can.

Kitteh, gorgeous nails as always.
PP, what a beautiful color!

Two coats Charla over one coat China Glaze Shower Together. Mermaid-y enough for me : )

That's stunning Kitteh.

I have teal hair stripes and teal glasses so am more than up for this.

(My holo mani lasted really well, over 10 days but its just starting to chip now.)

I ended up doing Sephora OPI's "Who let the dorks out" as per kitteh's links above in which Calcy liked my post about it before.

Image

It remains one of my favourites!

I found out that the polish that I thought was Henley Regatta was actually Thames, so I went with Chanel Azure. My picture doesn't do it justice - it shines blue, green, purple depending on the light and angle. It's a bit more ocean-y than mermaid-y.

Image

Edited so hopefully it's not huge like it was before! My big ole feet were taking over the thread!

Aw, thanks! I wish all the different colors would show up in the pic. And yes, Thames is pretty but I wanted glitter! I know the point of the thread is to use what you already have, but I sure do want Henley Regatta now that I know I don't have it!
