All about the color.....

I decided to try out a new brand of nail polish.  I usually use OPI but have a few other brands that I use every once in awhile.  I was in the store the other day and saw that Revlon had this top speed (dries in 60 seconds) nail polish with pretty bright and fun colors.  I decided to give them a try.

The nails on my hands don't grow much; they get to a certain length and chip and peal.  I've tried everything and nothing I can do, short of getting fake nails will help them grow.  I gave up on fake nails years ago.  So with my nails being so short I usually will give myself a french manicure, which I've gotten pretty good at doing, or wear clear polish.  The colors I bought were so cute and after I polished my toes I decided to do my fingernails also.  They didn't turn out so bad.  Because the color dries so quick I'll be changing the color all week.  With that being said here are the fun colors I chose:

1. Mondays Color Cherries in the Snow

2. Tuesdays Color Stormy

3. Wednesdays Color Orchid

4. Thursdays Color Orchid

5. Fridays Color Craving Coral
6. Saturdays Color Electric

7. Sundays Color Black Star
8. All the Colors

So this was my experiment with color.  I think I may start painting the nails on my hands on a regular basis now since I love most of these colors.  Now I'm wanting to go on a polish shopping rampage.  Lol  My favorites were pics 1, 2, 5, and 7.  I realize I don't really care for the pale colors so much, it doesn't go well with my skin tone and for some reason they just look a little dull to me.  The Black Star had a bit of a silver tint to it that I really loved.  I'll probably be wearing this one for the remainder of the week.  The Yellow I want to just toss in the trash and I doubt I'll ever wear it again.  It actually looked cute on my girlies hands so I'll probably just give it to her since she's decided that she now likes her nails done.  YEAY!!  Maybe she's turning the corner from tom boyishness.  Lol. 

Alright, that's it for me people. Wishing you all a happy Monday and a great week. Lol

I like 1 & 5 the best! You're right... that yellow is scary. The purple-grey one is a good dupe for OPI's Planks A Lot. Stace LOVES that color. I've learned more about nail polish and makeup in the last week than in the last 3 years! It's quite amazing!

@ Jameil, I think 1 is probably my favorite. I re-painted them that color yesterday. I LOVE it.

I'm not a big make up person. I'm pretty sure with your up coming wedding you're quite the make-up artist now. Lol

FYI...There is a vegan nail polish line called SpaRitual, it is pricey, but I though you would be interested in the fact that it is vegan!

We use it at the spa I work at.
