Almost There

Wanna know what I've been doing for the last 2 days? I was going though nail polish photos on the net, trying to clear up my wishlist. Yeah, right!
I looked through these entire blogs: Scrangie, Nailphile, Lacquer Laine, Body & Soul and right now I'm in the Steph's Closet photo gallery. My wishlist got even longer. Go figure! =)

Anyway. I found old white Essence nail polish and added few drops of black polish in it. Trying to re-create Sally Hansen's Wet Cement ... It's way off, but I like the color anyway. The opacity, on the other hand, sucks. I thought of Donkey (from Shrek) while frankening and his famous line: ''Are we there yet?'' It sounded familiar so I googled it and guess what: there already IS a polish named Are we there yet. Crivens!

Nihrida Frankly, Almost There, 4 coats



Thanks for looking!

  3. It looks great!
    I spent some time the other day working on a line of spring pastels that I have wanted for years and just cant find! I've done 5 and have 1 to go.

  4. The colours looks cute but i can see that you had a hard time with the coats (omg i hate spending hours layering my nail polishes, 2 coats is the limit). I think i'm gonna try this because i've always wanted gray nail polish (too lazy to look for one) but now i remember i have a white polish i don't like somewhere... if it's only some drops of black i guess i could sacrifice my beloved sally hansen nail polish.

  7. I agree. But my limit is higher - 3 coats. =) If the white is opaque enough on it's own, than try it! For this shade, it's just a couple of drops of black. =)

  10. Pretty shade of grey. I saw the new collection of greys by Nubar. I love Knights Armour, all that pretty glitter. The rest I can skip since I do have lots of greys. I have such a big list of polishes I want that I'd need to be a millionaire and have a whole room to keep them in. I even stopped writing some down. I'm trying not to buy so much. I need polish to be really different or special or I won't buy it. Hope I won't anyway.
