Holiday 2010 manicures

Happy almost-Thanksgiving! What is everyone doing this year? I'll be frying two turkeys... no, scratch that. Husband will be frying two turkeys. I'm pretty excited. But there are pressing matters before all this jazz.

Holiday nail polish.

I've never been one for beauty products, but when it comes to nail polishes, I'm a bit of a freak. I never get professional manicures because after a few days, I'm ready to try something else. This holiday season, I'm trying to find the perfect sparkly manicure that doesn't look like I just stepped out of a stripper bar. So, I could take a few opinions. Here are my sparkly, holiday options:

Left to right: ULTA Twilight (shimmery without specks of glitter); Sephora by OPI Looks Like Rain Dear (shimmer and glitter specks); Essie Hot Coco (opaque brown/taupe color); and Sephora by OPI Already Famous (taupey, shimmery goodness)

Of course, to get the perfect manicure, I layered. Below are the outcomes... which do you like best? (Granted, they look quite similar... but they are all different.)

1: Looks Like Rain Dear, by itself
2. Hot Coco layered under Looks Like Rain Dear
3. Twilight with one layer of Already Famous
4. Twilight with one layer of Looks Like Rain Dear

Personally, I think #3 is best because it's shimmery without being too overwhelming. Opinions? Suggestions? Thoughts that I've gone mad because clearly these are all basically the same thing? Hmmmm...

  1. Well, I trust your judgement, because you've seen them in person, but I'm a fan of #2, personally (and #4 is second for me). But they're all real pretty-like. :P

  7. #3 is my favorite, but #1 is a bit more festive. Perfect for a party this season.
