Nail of the Day 10/29/11: Essie Buy Me A Cameo
I filmed a Halloween tutorial yesterday and needed a subtle, natural looking nail polish. I could’ve gone with a standard nude, but decided to go with something slightly different. Buy Me A Cameo is described as a “frosted satin mocha” on Essie’s site, but I consider it to be a pearly champagne color. Think of it as the perfect “au natural” polish...
Nail of the Day 10/26/11: Orly Rage
I haven’t posted on here in a while because I’ve been wearing this polish the entire time. Gasp! Ingrid wearing one color for over a week straight?! Yep. There aren’t many lacquers that can induce such loyalty, but Orly Rage is one of them. It’s a beautiful rose gold color that looks absolutely stunning on everyone, and I consider it to be one of my all-time favorite nail...
Nail of the Day 10/17/11: Revlon Copper Penny
I blame Allison for making me want this nail polish. I’ve had my eye on Copper Penny ever since I saw her blog post on it back in January. After months of unsuccessful searches, I can happily say that my quest is finally over. Revlon is one of the few drugstore brands that makes fantastic nail polish. They have a wide selection of colors and the quality is comparable to a lot of higher...
Nail of the Day 10/13/11: Essie Lady Like
I think the name of this polish is spot on because it’s just that - lady like. I wore it to an interview I had yesterday, and it was the perfect complement to my outfit. Essie definitely hit a home run with this mauve-y nude varnish. In the bottle it comes across as a soft mauve, but on the nails it transforms into a lovely nude color. Nude is a tough color to nail because it can...
Nail of the Day 10/11/11: China Glaze Frostbite
I (reluctantly) just removed this color from my nails. Why? Well, I have a big job interview tomorrow afternoon and bright cobalt blue on my nails probably wouldn’t be the most appropriate choice. Luckily, this photo I took earlier allows me to treasure Frostbite even when I’m not wearing it. I’ve been on the hunt for a color like this for months. It’s surprisingly...
Nail of the Day 10/03/11: Essie Angora Cardi
This is the first time I have actually worn Angora Cardi outside of a test swatch. I purchased it at Ulta back in spring and decided to save the little guy (or girl, I guess?) until fall. Angora Cardi is a rich, deep mauve color from Essie’s Fall 2009 collection. It’s not quite mauve, but it’s not quite a wine color either, making it unique in a very subtle way. In terms of...
