Hoo hoo hoo. I am super stressed out right now, but that does not mean that I have not had time to do my nails. This may be not always be a good thing, as sometimes I come up with some terrible, terrible ideas. This was not so bad, but it was preceded by, well. You’ll see, safely under a cut.

HITS no Olimpo Hermes and Rimmel Night Life — lovely golden linear holo and fascinating brown-taupe-that-looks-purplish-in-certain-lights with a rather gorgeous copper-gold-red shimmer.

I like the way they look together. Observe the shimmer on the bottle. It’s a bit more subtle on the nail, but not that much.

Rrrrrainbow!  Also, Night Life displaying a bit more gold. That’s three coats of Hermes and two of Night Life. Next time I wear Hermes, I might consider using a base, as it goes quick. The bottle’s not huge, and if you mung up your mani three times as I did, well, you may draw an unlovely picture from there. The Rimmel was streaky in one coat and good in two.

I’m still really enjoying the double-accent manicure look. I’ll get ’round to something else sooner or later, but there are a lot of things that are currently popular that I just don’t particularly groove on, or, alternately, haven’t got the supplies to attempt.

Please note that I will never attempt ‘caviar nails’, because I think they are terrible. Flocked nails, likewise. I give such things sideways glowers.

Mind you, this does not prevent me from some hilarious things — see beneath the cut for a painfully bad one-hand mani.

Hermes was bought at Llarowe. The Rimmel was another present from the fantabulous U. ;D


What a brave attempt at I don’t even know. This was Hermes, Essence Gleam In Blue, and Ulta Chocolate Kiss, squished together for no good reason. I wanted to do something with blue and brown and gold, and this was not it. We all make strange mistakes. I have to admit, though, I really like all three of these colors separately. ;D

Both the Essence and the Ulta polish were, in fact, bought at Ulta.
