Today’s Plunder, Part One

Posted by manicuremania on December 5, 2009

From Ross:

Nothing much interesting at Ross last night, but I did pick up this Elf Jewel Tones set.

  • Dark Navy
  • Royal Purple
  • an irritatingly unnamed polish: Well it looks stupid anyway, grrrr! Maybe the sticker fell off.

From Sallys:

  • Fingerpaints Decked WIth Dazzle
  • Orly Iron Butterfly
  • Orly Solid Gold
  • Orly Glam Rock

I was going to only get Decked With Dazzle, but when I plopped my stuff down on the counter to check out, I noticed the display of the new Orly matte metals next to the register, and my hand just swooped out and grabbed them all at once! I hadn’t realized this collection was out yet, it looks verrrrrry interesting to me.


  • Irene
  • Veruschka: gorgeous, I can’t wait to try this one
  • Kate: Pretty!
  • Suvi
  • Sunny: odd color…sort of a shimmery orangy pink
  • Midori: My only Green Friday dupe

Zoyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaa! This is my Green Friday order. I was sooo wiped out from all the other online shopping I’d been doing for the past couple of days that I pretty much just picked three random polishes to get my free greens. The other two greens are backordered.

Fingerpaints – Pink Dawn

Posted by manicuremania on September 16, 2009

Here’s another that I am just not enjoying – Finger Paints Pink Dawn. I also used this one for my failed tire tracks Konad, and it works ok when there’s something else on top of it to distract me – it’s a pretty color. But It was streaky and draggy, and actually I just don’t think the color works very well on me. I only bought this because it was on clearance at Sally’s, actually.

French Week – Tire Tracks Konad

Posted by manicuremania on August 30, 2009

french week
I did this one a while ago and thought I’d drag it out for French Week! I love the combination of pink and black – it seems so vintage and it reminds me of poodle skirts and sock hops. The Konad pattern I used also looked nice, but not in black – I kept getting people exclaiming over my nails and then asking me if I’m into Nascar, or mentioning that it looks like tire treads. Not quite the effect I was going for.

I think I’ll try another variation of the pink and black this week without the tires.

This was Finger Paints Pink Dawn Konaded with black Special Polish and plate 44.

Finger Paints – Turquoise Tile

Posted by manicuremania on August 7, 2009

Not really a favorite, too bright. Plus I couldn’t find a single other color that looked good with it for Konading. And I can’t decide whether it’s blue or green, it’s an odd color.

Man, that one nail looks unaturally long. I’m trying really hard to get them all at the same length. It’s difficult cause my nails are extremely weak and thin and peely. And my middle fingernails keep breaking. 😦
