Sonia Kashuk Knockout Beauty Collection nail polish – Roll With The Punches 

So…sweet and true, sometimes my hubby brings me nail polishes as a token of his affection and because he understands my love of color and all things beauty.  (You can all roll your eyes and go “oh, gross!” now.  LOL, I know.). This week, he brought me a bottle from the Sonia Kashuk “Knockout Beauty Collection” because the artwork looked “badass” and “look at this freaking color.”  Well, I have to agree! 

  
Look at that freaking color! No retouching here (honestly, I never retouch swatch photos).  This color’s BRIGHT, y’all.  And it’s completely overcast today!  

This lovely polish is available at Target now for $5.00. 

I’m wearing this with Barielle protein treatment and I did 3 coats of the Sonia Kashuk laquer to get the most saturated color, but I could have gotten by with 2.  I topped it off with Poshè top coat for a super glossy 3-free manicure.

Zoya FREE 4 YOU

Girls and boys, it’s that time.  Zoya is doing their yearly free nail polish thingy.  This year instead of 3 bottles for $12 shipping, it’s 4 bottles for $15 shipping.  That turns out to be around $3.75 per bottle, which is damned good for 5-free, healthy polish (normally $9/bottle).  I do realize I sound like an ad, but whatever.  People paint!

What’s on your nails?  Zoya Posh Matte Velvet Laquer

Quick nail post!  I love this Zoya matte polish in “Posh,” because it’s not totally flat – it has this interesting velvety finish.  I did a terrible job around my cuticles because I was painting my nails in the dark by this sad little lamp while my husband was asleep, LOL!

What’s on your nails? – Essie Carry On

Tonight is our town’s local goth-industrial dance night!  I usually wear brights or reds in the summer, but for tonight, I felt like getting my goth on, so I got out this great black-plum-red color, Essie’s “Carry On.” I think this may still be in stores, but I bought it last fall.  It is definitely still sold on their website and many other sites.  This is reminiscent of Chanel’s Vamp/Rouge Noir, only more on the plum side than the burgundy side of black.  I hate to hear they re-released Rouge Noir last year and I wasn’t paying attention, because they now go for $150.00 on eBay.  Thanks, Uma Thurmond.

Ok, so I did a quick and sloppy job, but I got it done, finally – a quickie mani pedi with Sinful Colors “Bleeding Heart,” my holy grail red for at least 10 years.  I believe this is my 3rd bottle.  I use thinners so I can use bottles up, too!

What’s on your nails? Essie For The Twill Of It

So, I’ve been under the weather, so no posts in a couple of days, but last night I managed a home mani-pedi!  I used Nailtiques #2, Essie’s For The Twill Of It, and topped it with Poshe fast drying top coat.  This nail polish is an amazing multi-chrome with hints of teal, magenta, and silver-brown.  In some lights, it appears gunmetal.  It came out 2 years ago, but if you can’t find it, supposedly Peace & Love & OPI by OPI is nearly exactly the same.

  
I really wish I could capture all the colors in this amazing polish better!
