Nail Files - More Fun Holiday Polishes

As a Thanksgiving treat, I have for you some fun holiday polishes that I have sampled lately. (Just a little something to think about as you are licking your fingers clean after a yummy turkey dinner.)

First up, Dior Silver Purple. Great name - it's a silver toned purple color. (Don't get me started again on that Lemon Balm...I still don't get that name, loved the color, but the name was ridiculous.) Available at Sephora for $20. I was very mixed on this color. I alternately really liked it and then really didn't. If this color works for you, it could be a 12-season color, because I think this would be really fun in summer. It definitely works as a holiday color now. Interestingly enough, it reminds me a lot of a "jeans" color.

Next, Absinthe Makes the Heart by Sephora by OPI ($9). Fun holiday color. Somewhat similar to some other colors I have, but nothing matches it exactly. Per the website, "smoky dark gray with green and iridescent glitter." Similar to the 212-Sephora shade, but definitely different. I think this would be a great metallic to go with just about anything.
Last, an fave from last fall - Barielle Misbehavin' Mistress ($8). Metallic taupe. Yep, that's it. I actually wore this a number of times as a summer pedi shade. In the photo, it looks rather brown, but IRL, it's less brown. That must be the metallic effect. I love this shade. And that's why I'm still using it, I suppose. A great neutral that's not quite black.

Very Happy Turkey Day back to all of you!!!

Katherine - so happy to serve! (hehe, that's my pun...since it was Thanksgiving and all...I know - lame)

Bella - yep - they have a whole separate line just for just for Sephora (50 cents more). Honestly, I have more application issues with the OPI Sephora line (don't even get me started on Run With It, my OPI-Seph problem child) - formula isn't alwasys great and it doesn't have that same fab wide brush - But, that being said, they do have some amazing colors.

Jenni - thanks! I loved that Lucy was just totally blocking the shot, so I kept that one. Every so often there is a little swish of puppy tail in an outfit pic, but that one took the cake!

OneFashionistaDiva - they are some fun colors.

Sweet Tea - oooh, haven't tried that one yet.
