Beauty Secret

While in New York this past week I received several compliments on my grey-brown hued nail varnish (at top).  Rarely one to stray from light pinks or red, I had gone out on a limb and snatched up a bottle of “mouse” from American Apparel.  The best part?  A week has past and still hasn’t chipped!  Now that it’s received the neo-trad stamp of approval I can’t wait to invest in more colors.

What nail varnishes are your favorites?  I’m always looking for new brands/hues!

    Love all three of those colors, but I’ve never tried American Apparel nail polish…will have to!;)
    OPI is my personal favorite because they last soooo long, and there’s about every color imaginable!

    Anjela — I loooove OPI’s Kennebunkport. My best friend introduced me back in high school and it’s been my go-to shade ever since : )

    Giselle — Essie is wonderful too! I haven’t tried any of these colors though?! Must track them down!

    I only wear very light colors on my hands due to both chipping and the fact that I find it distracting – but I LOVE color on my toes. My current favorites for fall/winter are both Essie – Jazz and Mink Muffs. They are both in the taupe family, the second being darker.Get tons of compliments in shoe departments – only place people see my toes now!

    I love OPI “over the taupe” and “you don’t know jacque” but just bought Essie “chinchilly” looking for the perfect grey…like a grey cashmere sweater. I was hoping you’d post your color!!! Thanks for sharing!!

    I just painted mine American Apparel Factory Gray and it is GORGEOUS!! The mouse looks a little funny with my Italian/Portuguese skin tone….but the Factory Gray looks great :)

    I think I might check out the Chanel Steel. Sounds very pretty.
