Nail Polish – Finishes and Colors

I’ve been taking better care of my nails lately, and have been keeping up my polish a lot better. There are so many different finishes on polishes, and my favorite has always been a nice creamy, shiny finish with no shimmer or sparkle. My favorite color in general is OPI Nantucket Mist (below), but OPI Bubble Bath gets an honorable mention as one of the most wearable bridal pink colors available (in my opinion).

But I’m also loving the more recent minty greens, taupes (think Chanel Particuli√®re), and nudes. I have yet to try a matte polish, but they don’t really appeal to me.
Shimmer I do on occasion, but I almost never wear a sparkley polish; it just isn’t my style.
What are your favorite colors and finishes?

Returning from the Holidays and LOTD Fail

Hello! I’m back from my hectic holiday season, and ready to start blogging again! Only when I had the flash of inspiration for a lip of the day, took my time applying it well, and spent some time photographing it, I found out that my camera is kaput. Boo.

So I wish I could show you, but you’ll have to just imagine…Dior Addict Lipstick in Brilliant Fuschia (discontinued, I believe) with MAC So This Season lipglass. Perfect plummy purple! The Dior lipstick is one of my favorite colors of lipstick I’ve ever owned, but I’d never paired it with a gloss before. MAC So This Season deepens the color and gives it a nice shine.

*sigh* Whenever I find a replacement I’ll be back in the game…I just started blogging and already camera failure. I will have to do without personal images for now, or images I have stored, which is do-able for a bit at least.

The MAC lipglass was purchased by me, and the Dior lipstick was a gift with purchase.
