It was Sunday Mother’s Day morning when I thought of this idea.. if I was going to work tomorrow what would I wear on my nails? So off I went hunting to see what I had that I could swatch with the idea that; I what would I wear to work if I was going to work for someone else?
So here we go..
Coney Island Queen by Palhish Polish
A beautiful nude with a gold shimmer and a flakies.. I checked with Palhish to see if she thought this was a wear to work color, she agreed and that is why its the first one on my list of colors. I figured I would show off colors that even if you do not have the brand, you could find the color.
A color that can be work by just about anyone, and it even works with someone as pale as me.
Juliet by BB Couture
Juliet is a rose creme that is great for everyday work color. Its not too bright and works with just about anyone’s skin tone.
Wicca Willow by Daily Lacquer
Here is another view of the same color:
Now if that seems a bit too bright, then I decided to matte it. Got to love g’day matte by Picture Polish!
Took the shine away and left it looking a really pretty brown with a bit of green shimmer. It looks even better in person!
Santa Monica Sands by BB Couture
This is a great color! It is a beige tan with shimmer and glitter. Not too much, so its doesn’t take away from the fact this is for work not for play.
Next color I think it fits the go to work colors, but it doesn’t really have a real name.. It was a gift from Ruby White Tips and its called Kym Customs Collection What you can’t tell in the photos its there is just a hint of rose to it.
Or here is another view of it:
The reason why it fits the go to work idea is, its a creme rose with just a touch of holo to it. Just enough to add a little character but not lets go crazy holo (that one is coming)
Now if you enjoy wearing pink polish, and even I will wear this next one.. why? Because it has this amazing blue flash that just jumps at you in the sunlight!
Raspberry Cosmo by BB Couture
I was showing off this swatch to a friend of mine who is a barbie pink fan.. (she drooled over the swatch!) and made me promise to ship her a few bottles! To see it in the sunlight?? I was like I could totally see myself wearing this one!
This is a basic brown that has a bit of frost to it:
Caramel Carma by BB Couture
It really is a pretty brown, and if you don’t care for the frost, hit is with matte top coat or glitter
Now I kinda of saved the best for last.. For those of us who work for ourselves! Woot!
Custom Color by Ruby White Tips (yes another one, also called Custom Kim’s)
Now believe me, working as your own boss can be really tough at times, you want to pull your hair out or you have a super bad bad day and then you get nail mail..
True story too. I was having a pisser of a day and I got nail mail from Ruby White Tips. I had ordered a few colors and she send me this one along as a surprise.. HELLO HOLO!!
(My cell took the best photo to show off the purple in it)
This is my kind of go to work color.. holo, silver with a bit of purple.. or its purple with a ton of silver in it.. don’t care love it!
Here is another one cause she just too pretty.. one of those colors that every time you wander into sunlight you spend the next 10 minutes just looking at your nails.. I DOUBLE DARE YOU to tell me you haven’t done that.. I dare ya!
In the shade its beautiful!! I will be doing a review for this one later on
