Aargh...I'm Not Feeling Any Of These

It's Monday and I can't get happy with my polish! First I want to show you a polish lots of people LOVE. OPI Skinny Dip'n In Lake Michigan.

This is three coats. It has a clear shimmer in it.

I think people who are in a fascist nail polish state at work like it because it's a neutral, but there's that little bit of shimmer that makes you feel like you're getting away with something.

On me it's a NO. I think it matches my skin tone too closely, or not closely enough. I just can't do this one.

Next is Milani Totally Cool which a very wonderful man (who I live with) bought for me at Target. I thought I was going to Totally Dig this, but I didn't.

This is one of those "gorgeous in the bottle" ones that doesn't quite translate to the nail.

It's really pretty, but the bottle has a hot pink and gold duochrome-like effect and the nail looks like when I layered glitter over navy blue.

The polish does not show up with any dimension. It's a pretty purple though. Sometimes I'm not in the mood for all the glitter.

I ended up here, and I have to leave it here because I have to go to work.

One of my Orlys where the label fell off. Anyone?

This is the most rabid, metallic, glittery pearl I've ever seen.

Brush-stroke heaven.

You can see the glitter in the extreme close-up.

It's just not what I was hoping to find this morning.

Okay, enough whining! This just means I try something else later on.


  1. I know the feeling! Some days none of the colors I choose make me happy. I think the Milani looks really nice on you though. The Orly might be Orly Platinum. It's very pretty, whatever it is :)

  2. I like the Milani. I'm not feeling the OPI either. The Orly is also okay. Not your day in polish land. There's always tons more colors to choose from. Thank God for polish remover.

  3. I'm sorry you're not liking any of these. I quite like the purple and the Orly. I know what you mean about that first one, though.

  4. Thanks for the commiseration! When a polish doesn't work you can really tell! I got a compliment on my Orly Platinum though... and yeah, I just bought a new bottle of remover yesterday. Amazing how quickly I go through a bottle of that.

  5. Hey cute blog! I love your nails. very chiccc ;)
