NOTD

As many of you may know, I am nail polish obsessed and have no less (though probably far more) than seventy-five different polishes in rotation at this very moment; thus, seeing as how it is one of my favorite Twitter days (#ManicureMonday), I thought it would be fun to share with all of you some of my latest lacquer looks!

1) This was created using one of my favorite polishes on the planet – Wet ‘n’ Wild’s Buffy the Violet Slayer. This is three coats, with one coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat. Ring via Forever 21.
2) This look was created using Nicole by OPI’s One Big Happy Fame-ily, which is a color from the Spring 2012 Kardashian Kollection – available exclusively at CVS. This is four coats, with one coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat for added shine. Rhinestone Heart Ring in Peach / Gold via Forever 21.
3) This was created using another one of my all-time favorites…Essie’s Mint Candy Apple. I used three coats of Mint Candy Apple on all fingers except for the ring finger – there I used three coats of Wet ‘n’ Wild’s Kaleidoscope for a splash of sparkle. One coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat was used on all fingers. Arrow Connector Ring via Forever 21.
4) This lacquer look was created using three coats of Sinful Colors Professional Nail Enamel in Pink Forever on all nails, except for the ring finger – there I used three coats of Sinful Colors Pink Glass – again, for extra sparkle. One coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat was used on all fingers. Ring via Forever 21.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?


Fashionably yours!

Style with Benefits said...

So fab! Love them all but my fav is the violet color. Do you have a fav polish that stays on longer than most? I'm terrible with applying top coats so my polish usually begins to chip shortly thereafter. I mostly use Sally Hansen, Essie and sometimes OPI. LMK! :)

Love the Manicure Monday title!

Love them all! (I have far more polishes than I really need but I too love them all!)
I just did my toes in Sinful's Boom Boom, a fun bright pink.

Alexa said...

I am adoring the bright colors for nails these days! Need to paint mine!

Natasha Hollerup said...

I keep my nails bare for the most part, but a look I really liked wearing was one similar to Britney Spears' mani in her "I Wanna Go" video.

Dancing Branflake said...

I know this is about nails, but can I just say what beautiful hands you have? Gorgeous!

bridechic said...

I'm just getting used to blue nail polish--it would go with great so many silver/pewter pieces of jewelry . . .

Pretty nails Erika! I love how much you enjoy polish! Today I am wearing our new 4FREE Floating Lotus--the exact bright carnation color that was in the new Jil Sander collection!

i am so bad at painting nails- I always let them chip so I rarely have mine painted. But that doesn't stop me from appreciating how great they look!

Like I always tell you like a broken record.. i love your polish/ring combos so much.

Tights Lover said...

Your nails look fantastic. I really like all of the looks, but I'm between either 1 or 2 as to which is my very favorite!

meg said...

I adore #1 & #4. I just got me some new color from Wet and Wild a very cool pink. I hope I like it.

Sherin said...

I love nail colours as well. I dread to think how many I have. Loving all these colours, and in particular love every single ring you're wearing.

Unknown said...

I like to paint my nails but hate, hate, hate taking off nail polish. Which generally means that I don't paint my nails very often. Do you have a favorite polish remover? Any secrets for making the removal process easier?

SG Angela said...

Well done nails makes a gal look more polished overall.

Toni-Yvonne said...

Number 3!!! So gorgeous, I am having a real love affair at the moment with blues and turquoises :)

Cheryl van den Berg said...
