Nude and gray.

Jukebox: Late Night Alumni- What if I say please?

Is it bad that the first thing I noticed on my interviewer's hand is her nailpolish. And that I knew the color... and brand?

"Over the Taupe- Opi"

I've been into nudes for a while, but with the descending winter weather... my inclinations  are towards the gray toned ones. These two will be on my next buy list:
Metro Chic from Sephora by OPI
Channelesque from China Glaze

... actually in juxtaposition, these look somewhat identical. haha

I also really like Pelican Gray from China Glaze, but I don't think it will look good people with tones around or darker then NC40... aka me.  I don't know about others, but some milky-light varnishes end up looking extremely "flourescent-y" on my hands since my skin is tanner.

So back to nude talk. In my quest to appear less conspicuous in terms of nail color, the one I'm sporting at the moment is Cafe Vienna #475A by Wet n Wild (Crystalic Line).  Despite the drug-store-y brand, it is a gorgeous color. A beigy-nude color, a bit milky, and then there is microflecks of gold shimmer in it. The sheen is very subtle though, so it still looks somewhat creamy. The only thing I would complain about it is that it get's a bit streaky if applied in a rush. That, and I believe it's discontinued.... (and this part is sort of embarrassing) but I'm pretty sure I've had it since high school.

A check on makeup alley confirms my suspicions.

"Cafe Vienna" #475A. Amazing reviews, yet all dated from 2002-2003 -___-. It's hard to believe that babies born after the time I obtained this nailpolish can add, subtract, and comprehend this blog entry. omga.

Ok! that's my nail rant today =)
