(oxblood red shade, glossy finish)
Wicked was Essie's color of the month for October, so I fished this one out of the archives (see, it's so old, the logo isn't even white!). It looks brown-ish in this picture, but it's a deep shade of red, kind of like dried blood. Perfect for Halloween, no?

Shades: On a Silver Platter & No More Film
(silvery gold shade, blue and iridescent glitter with metallic finish & deep navy blue color, glossy finish
Did you know that today's a holiday? It's 10/10, the Perfect 10 Manicure Day! In honor, I'm posting one that combines all my favorite things: navy polish, something sparkly, and an accent nail.

Shade: Fashion's Finest
(teal green color, glossy gel finish)
I do love this shade for fall, but I have to say it doesn't have the staying power of a gel polish, even the at-home variety. It chipped after one day. Expensive and doesn't last? No bueno. Not worth it.

(deep purple color, with reddish/orange iridescent finish)
Ok, here's the truth: I don't actually know that Chanel nail polish is worth the money, but I will say it's fun to buy because it makes you feel fancy. And since my birthday is today, it's as good an excuse as any to splurge!

(soft gold color, metallic sheer finish)
I love gold polish in the summer. It's the perfect shade for July. I put 3 coats on here to get a more opaque finish, but you can still see my nail underneath if you look hard enough. That was a hassle. But I still love gold. And Sally.

Zoya Professional Lacquer
(red coral color, glossy finish)
I think Zoya only names their polishes after famous girls because somehow there's an LC but not a Jennifer. Really? Lawrence, Aniston, Garner, Lopez... Love-Hewitt... get on that!
Next Shade: Revlon in Pink Pineapple

Brand: MAC Nail Lacquer
(carnation pink color, glossy finish)
This is a very girly shade. It took 3 coats to get coverage that was mostly opaque. I guess it's nice, but it's not really me.
Next Shade: Zoya in LC

Nicole by OPI
Shade: A Phil's Paradise
(charcoal gray color, metallic finish)
If it wasn't obvious, this is from the Modern Family Collection. Phil Dunphy done good with this shade -- it's as edgy as he is nerdy. Who knew?
Next Shade: MAC in Snob

Essie Nail Lacquer
Shade: Armed & Ready
(brownish-army green color, iridescent finish)
This shade that looks different from every angle. A cool effect with a badass name.
Next Shade: Nicole by OPI in A Phil's Paradise
