Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Due to some technical glitches with the original Show Me Your Nails Thread, I am starting a new thread with @vegchililover78's blessing (She says "hello," by the way!).


Please share your nail looks, nail art and manicures!





...And don't forget to check out @Beadshopgirl's Nail Stamping Thread for stamping inspiration! ❤️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

For anyone that needs more polish (so...not me, and maybe not @itsfi either 🤣)@@, PPU has a running list of BF deals coming up from dozens of indie brands ❣️ Just go to polishpickup dot com, and click on "Indie Black Friday Sales" on the menu!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

😂🤣😂 @RGbrown! PPU is so organized! There's so many indie brands listed!! Tagging @PrettyPaint @SAlyFitz  @keana1 @ather (though not sure about shipping to Canada) @Samtian @tjffc @CookieGirl1 @eshoe  @sonnydee (because why wouldn't I tag you?!! lol 🛍)

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi I saw that! Definitely helpful (and dangerous, lol). I came precariously close to making a purchase on the Nailed It! site last night because they're doing an early Black Friday sale.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi Haha thank you for the tag, I better not look though! I just went through mine and my mom's drawer of them and tossed a bunch out. She's going to stick with Colorstreet now and I only get to wear it on my toes haha. Gotta use these babies up first!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Yay! @itsfi Thanks for the tag. I should not look - but I will 😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Ooooh ok I will check it out @itsfi! My love for indie polishes is only beginning 🤩


eta: If you have tried any of the Alchemy Lacquers, I would love a recommendation. They are all gorgeous @RGbrown 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Ooooo thanks for the tag! I’ll be checking this out now!!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Another swatch fest, this time in the darker range of burgundy/wine 💜❤️



From thumb to pinky: OPI The One That Got Away, Morgan Taylor Wanna Share A Tent?, Candied Apple Polish Burnt Raspberry, Sally Hansen Miracle Gel V-Amplified, OPI Bastille My Heart



From pinky to thumb: OPI Rich & Brazilian, Bliss Polish Cabin Fever, Julep Jeanette, Picture Polish Monroe, Pipe Dream Polish Sparkle & Smile

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown Ooh that second set!!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Thanks so much! I agree that is a spectacular set! 💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Gaaaahhhh! Burgundy and wine polishes!!! My weakness! Well, technically, there are multiple colors that are my weakness when it comes to polishes, but I do love me some pretty burgundy / wine shades. These are gorgeous!! Your swatch fests are extraordinary @RGbrown😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Thanks so much! The only one that gave me trouble was the Sally's more of a jelly formula, and while I don't hate jellies overall, it was a bit streaky and took 4 coats and a little work to get it even. The rest were all easy peasy, 2-3 coats. I'd imagine at least some of the indies are discontinued now, but I'd heartily recommend any of them if you come across 'em!


I'm quickly falling in love with Morgan Taylor lately. Not everyone will like the brush, but I adore's huge! And perfectly rounded for my nails beds; I can get most nails done with only two swipes. And the formula is fantastic as well; rarely do I need a third coat with these (and for many, just one coat would do). ❣️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed when I look at my unused polishes lately. Somehow the stash keeps growing instead of shrinking (which is surely not my fault 😂), so I planned out a little swatch blitz. Today, 10 pinks! 



From thumb to pinky: CoverGirl Parisian Pink, Morgan Taylor Live Out Loud, Julep Marina, China Glaze The More The Berrier, Formula X Spectacle



From thumb to pinky: ILNP Paige, OPI All Your Dreams In Vending Machines, Julep Lainey, Bliss Polish Pulsing Hearts, Orly Acceptance Speech

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

"Somehow the stash keeps growing..." Of course it's not your fault @RGbrown! Why would it be your fault?!!! No one here would think it's your fault. 🤣 These are gorgeous pinks!!! ♥️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


I mean...I would have been fine if my sister hadn't shoved a massive box of polishes in my face and told me she didn't want them anymore. What was I supposed to do...just leave them? 😂


(Because that 40ish is my only problem, clearly 🤣)


Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, you couldn't refuse your sister! How sisterly would that have been?!!! No reason to be rude. You did the right thing by taking one for the team. It really is for the greater good! 🤣

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I'm behind on BIC and posting here. ☹️ This week's nails are courtesy of NAILS INC. Coco For Real Nail Polish Duo. The deep brown shade is 100% Hot Chocolate (two coats) and the shimmery caramel-y brown shade is I'm Fondue You (one coat). I can pick up a subtle chocolate scent every now and again from these polishes.

Last week's nails - Music City Beauty "Raspberry Beret" with Revlon "Molten Magic" for stamping. Base coat is OPI; top coat is Glisten & Glow.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Both of those are lovely! Chocolate scented? Neat! I've only had one scented polish before, and it smelled like baby powder; I hate baby powder, so it got tossed out immediately lol, and I've been wary every since 😂

Particularly loving that raspberry shade ❣️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, I'm with ya - a baby powder scented polish should be tossed. No one needs that scent wafting in the air every time you wave or move your hands. I'm so pleased with this raspberry polish - the Prince song ended up being stuck in my head and I found myself humming it whenever I looked at my nails. 😆

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Don't mind me...I'll just be hanging out here, talking to myself 😂😂😂


Moody blues this time, a mix of dusty teals and grey. I might stamp over this later, but I always get annoyed with myself when I forget to photograph the base colors alone; part of my purpose is eventually working up a catalog of swatches of the bulk of my collection.


From pinky to thumb:

Inglot 891, Butter London Victoriana, Sephora OPI Go My Own Way, Sinful Colors Winter Wonder, Pipe Dream Polish Smouldering



indirect natural light; this is pulling all 4 blues just a tad greener than they really are, and the Butter on my ring finger is a bit more muted IRL as well. 



flash to show off some of the sparkle! Butter looks closer to correct here too


ETA: yup, added a little stamping with Zoya Aspen 💙
