NOTD: Copper Coast

20120731-140446.jpg I’m going out of town soon, and I won’t be back until the end of August, so I was looking for a single nail polish color that I would be happy to have on my nails for an entire month, as I only wanted to travel with one nail polish. I found this coppery gold color that is perfect to finish off summer and take me straight into fall. It’s beautiful with tanned skin – it’s fairly neutral, but adds a nice shimmer to your nails. Another bonus is that the color changes from a gold to a copper to (a personal favorite) rose gold. Keep Reading for full details and pictures…. Continue reading

NOTD: Sally Hansen Rose Wine

20120708-092058.jpgToday I have a quick nail of the day! I’m out of town this week (no worries, posts will be up!), and I decided to give myself a fresh manicure last night. Of course, by time I got up this morning one nail had been chipped out of an otherwise perfect manicure. I decided to go with a simple pink color that would go with anything. The one I picked is from Sally Hansen’s Hard As Nails line, which I absolutely adore! The colors are really pretty, and the nail polish dries pretty fast which provides for minimal damage. The coats are not that thick, so for a lasting mani I suggest coating about 3 times. The color I used is Rose Wine. It’s a really pretty, simple pink, but it tends to change color in different lights which I love. For more pictures and other pink polishes keep reading… Continue reading
