NOTW: Gray is the New Black

This is another gray nail polish.  As a matter of fact it’s a new purchase thanks to a GC from my good friend, Karima! I decided to do gray again not only because it’s the transitional color to the fall season, but, I just love how it looks.

This one is a little darker than the last one I used, which was Chinchilly by Essie.  I just used one coat. Can you believe it?

I have one more gray polish that’s by Essie. You’ll see it very soon in a NOTW.

Have you been into gray polishes lately?

Trend Alert: Gray nails (NOTW)

Yesterday’s Who What Wear Email suggested that Heather Gray nails are in right now as the perfect transitional color from summer to fall. They mentioned colors like OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques, Chanel’s Particuliere, Top Shop’s Makeup nails in Big Smoke, amongst a few others. 


Last night, while at the AOL’s Blogger Event, which was great; Janique and I had a lot of fun (review & pictures to follow), free manicures were given using Essie nail polish.  I ended up getting my nails done since I haven’t had them done in weeks (I’ve been going bare).  I chose Chinchilli, a taupe/gray.  This is a color that I already have in my stash.  I love it.

What do you think of Gray as a transitional nail color?

Do you own any gray polishes? If so, what colors?

NOTW: OPI Ogre The Top Blue

I’m going to the Diva Lounge tonight, and I was in great need of a nail polish change.  I polished my nails this bright blue from OPI’s Shrek Collection – Ogre The Top Blue.

How do you like it?

NOTW – Gala & Resort

My nails and toes don’t match.  Sometimes I don’t match either of the two just for fun. Sometimes certain colors don’t look as good on my finger nails as they would on my toes…

I took the time to do a french nail – myself.  It came out pretty decently.  I actually wore this color without the french all of last week.  I thought it would look cool/nice as french.

This (Essie Lapis of Luxury)  is what I have on my toes. I like this much better than the Tarte Deco.  Plus, blue is one of my favorite colors!
