Winter Nails

Peachy Keen Blog: Four Fall Nail Polish Colors for Your Collection
Hello, hello.

A snippet of the colors I will be cycling through this winter. They are all fabulous. If I could send all of you a package with these four beauties, I would.  Here are the deets: 

Essie's No More Film: This dark blue sometimes looks violet. In my book, that's the best kind of blue there is. Also, cheers for a one-coat polish. A+ in opaqueness. 

Essie's Wicked: My husband picked this out and allowed me to jump on the vampy nails bandwagon. Unlike No More Film, it's a two-coater. But it lasts for days and you'll be right on trend.

Revlon's Copper Penny: The color is a happy, happy marriage of rose goldy-coppery beauty. But beware. As many metallic polishes go, the texture is a little rough without a topcoat. But Revlon also makes an awesome topcoat, so you can pick them up in the same aisle.

Sally Hansen's Insta-Dry in Expresso: This post could also be title "AN ODE TO SALLY HANSEN INSTA-DRY". The brush is enormous. It dries fast. It lasts for a long time. Usually they take one coat. And it's cheap. This color in particular hints at the 90's comeback that's been all the rage these days.

Now, my hunt for a winning base coat still continues. Throw suggestions at me. 


  1. I LOVE Sally Hansen's Insta-Dry. I only have 2 colors, but they are my favorite because they go on so smoothly. Let me know when you find the best base coat. I've never used one, but if it helps the manicure last longer then I'm all about that.

    p.s. I'm obsessed with the copper color. Good choice!

  2. i love essie! and i love that blue color! you're so cute :)
