OPI So Many Clowns...So Little Time


I re-nubbed my nails. I always grow them out to about 2-3 mm then the nails start to really look yellow, flake, and peel. I get fed up and chop it all off. Then I'm like, "Well why didn't I do this before? This looks much better anyway!" Every. Time.





(2 coats - Bottom two, sunlight/shade photos are most color accurate)

This is basically the nail polish color I have been looking for my whole life.... I don't want to overstate things or anything.

Before I was ~into~ nail polish, I was into nudes and I was forever looking for a sheer polish that was lighter than your regular nude but not just an off-white. Most were too pink, too peach, too white, too streaky, too opaque, or some combination of the above.

This polish is the right color and it does what it needs to do: it's extremely work appropriate, it just opaque enough to hide staining (believe me), it dries nicely, and it applies reasonably well given that it is a milky sheer.

I'm down with this Clown.

I love nubbins and that looks great on you. Very chic.

Grace said...

This is the perfect nude for your skin tone! Funny, because it's the one I *didn't* buy from that collection, since the pinker toned one suited me better, but the beige one is absolutely lovely one you!

i wasn't sure how i would feel about the whole femme de cirque collection, but they're slowly and surely growing on me!

Your nubbins are too cute! My nail beds are different lengths, so it's impossible for me to get such nubs :(

love the color of this polish but the name kind of terrifies me! lol. Clowns are totally freaky!

Piff said...

Laura - They're great basics!

Cilucia - Mine are TOTALLY different lengths! Look at the photo! It doesn't matter. Do you.

Foxy - My mind takes on a deeply sexual connotation with this name. I really really don't know why. I don't particularly dislike clowns (they're not my fav) but I don't like them either. It's weird idk.

That is a perfect polish for you. I should do the chopping with my nails. They finally are getting long again. Long for me anyway. My thumb nails are still short and my middle fingers. Crazy annoying. My nails are stained like crazy. I wore Mermaid Tears and my nails were really left with yellow on them. I also have peeling so it will be soon when I do the chop.
