Winter Nails
« on: November 06, 2013, 11:12:39 AM »
Yes, I jumped into Winter.  I was at Rite-Aid and found a nail polish brand called Pop.  They a teal with a corresponding glitter polish, too.  The nights and mornings are cold now so I couldn't help but think of winter.

Sorry, the picture is too small. But, you get the design idea.   :nail:

Do you have any holiday designs brewing in your head? :popcorn:

Oh, Susie, I wish I was brave and imaginative like you. You inspire me to do something about my nails. I think it is high time that I tried living a bit more dangerously!

When I clicked on the picture it showed up much larger.  Now I am so envious of your skills.  My goal for winter nails is the same as my summer one...not to offend anyone with how bad my nails usually look. :-[

Aww...thank you ladies.  The ladies at work are wondering when I will open up my own nail salon.  I don't think I'll make enough to support my makeup addiction! :lol:

I bought Chanel Rouge Rubis. Well I don't buy  nail polishes during the year, I just buy the Christmas edition of Chanel. This is a very beautiful red, and it does look like it would suit any complexion because it is neither too orangey nor  too blue (how do they do it?); it is exactly the kind of red that I wish I could wear on my lips. The only trouble with strong colours, imo, you need a steady hand and good eyesight to apply it and I am not that good at it. (I'm ok). Tomorrow I am going to take it the nail parlour and get them to do my nails, just shape and paint.

At 6:20am, going to the nail parlour after work does not seem like a possibility. I just want to get home and back to bed. I think I'll just apply the polish  myself...

I tried it on just now. The texture is great, more like a gel. This just one coat and no top coat.

That really is a gorgeous red!  One more coat and you will have perfection.  I'm thinking from your description it must be a jelly-type polish.

my photo is not very good but you can have a better idea if you follow this link

my nails are not very nice and one of them is quite ridged, but the polish covers the ridges very well. DH thinks the colour is 'garish' but he is just being is usual self!

I'm sure he meant to say 'festive' instead!  I am impressed that the polish covers ridges...I have a nail like that, too.

I love that color and it does appear to be a universal red. I wonder if I can find it less expensively somewhere...I know that I would only use it around the winter holidays.

OPI has such a wide range of colours, I am sure I could find something very similar. I have got this 'thing' about Chanel, but once I retire, it's goodbye little luxuries (or perhaps I'll put them in my birthday/ Christmas list!)
