I did nail wraps as I'd just put plain gel on my nails and wanted something quick for a party on Saturday.

They were brighter in real life but I took the photo the day after I put them on so they were already a bit worse for wear. They didn't last very well.

Baps, that mani is adorable! It's sad they didn't last though!

Cute, baps!

I put on what I remembered to be a bright, but dark, pink...and now it's red (?). Challenge fail.

Do you have a light pink you could try layering over it?

Ok, taking monkeytoes' advice here, and I think it worked out pretty well! Layered ELF Light Pink over ELF Smokin' Hot. Since the pink is sheer, it lets a bit of the darkness of the (accidental) red show through, with a shimmery finish. Pink!

Also, cat.

Oh, due to the stash pics up thread, I realized that I had a glitter pink too: candy shop. So now I'm glitter on fingers and hot pink on toes.

i have zero hot pinks, and only one polish that could even halfway be considered a pink (zoya pandora)... so that's what i used. it worked out perfectly because it coordinates nicely with the pasha that's still on my toes, but i feel like i'm cheating because it's the nudest pink in the entire universe.

OPI Strawberry Margarita, with Pompeii Purple (which you really can't see) and Ate Berries in the Canaries on the accent nail.

I went with Wet n Wild's Tropicalia, with an accent nail using one of the NCLA nail wraps I got in my Vegan Cuts beauty box. Side note, having small and short nails means that I can get at least 2 nails out of each sticker, which rules because it means if I wanted to I could probably get 7 or 8 full manis out of the pack. I never thought I'd actually buy nail wraps, but looking at it like that, I totally would.

Tropicalia is a nice pink, it reminds me of candy.

I had an OPI Blushy Pink color (I think it was called pink cheeks or something) but I thought it was boring so I threw some Shatter over that shiitake last night! A silver color.

It's still kind of a subtle pink, but I like it. I do have a super hot pink from China Glaze I got recently, but that stuff chips like crazy. Very annoying. I should try it with Shatter over it, that stuff is like steel.

And yes, Shatter is sooooo last year, but I like it a lot. and you can find it super cheap at TJ Maxx and stuff

I used the only pink I brought to the city-OCC Anime. Not my picture-my nails are raggedy from doing dishes and cleaning without gloves on.

It's a lot brighter than the picture looks.

Ooh thanks! I was staring at my raggedy nails and wondering. I almost felt orange, but now I'm not sure.

It's like a nod to the end of summer AND the beginning of fall. My toes are Zoya indigo.

Tomorrow! (Monday) Mine are Flower Beauty Eye of the Tiger Lilly right now (very true orange, nice and bright without being neon), and I think I'm going to put another coat on and then top it with some gold glitter.

I don't know what my deal is, but recently orange has been my favorite color in general. I was always a green girl before! (Not for nails, but in all other things.)

Any idea what next week will be? I need to chop my nails off tomorrow or Friday so I can get into my wetsuit without jabbing a hole in it and I might as well repaint at the same time.
