Warhol’s Poptastic Nail Art

It’s Wednesday. On Wednesday’s We Wear Pink. Pink it is…

It’s a hot and very bright pink from Color Club’s Poptastic collection. They named this one ‘Warhol.’

I have had more comments and compliments from strangers while I have been wearing the colors from the Poptastic collection. These colors are truly attention-getters.

It does look like a smudge on my index finger, but it’s just a reflection.

Do I dare try to make ‘Warhol’ POP (art) even more?

I got this Icing polish called ‘Glamourous’ many months back. It is one of the best holo glitters I own. I wish my car was this color instead of the run-of-the-mill silver.

This reminds me of the disco ball at a restaurant/club in my home town. After 10 PM, they moved the tables off the dance floor and we BOOGIED!!!

Here’s the sad part, even in real life ‘Warhol’ stole the limelight right out of ‘Glamourous.’ ‘Warhol’ is just spectacular and doesn’t need any help.

But in real life, Warhol really wasn’t attractive. His face was taunt before we even started making fun of Joan Rivers…

He’s Got Kenny Rogers’ Eyyyyyyes’ (sung to the song ‘She’s Got Betty Davis’ Eyes‘).

I dig the art, though. 😀

Wednesday’s Pink Cheeky Monkey

On Wednesday’s, me and a group of other nail bloggers, wear pink polish. Check them out too.

This gem of a pink has been sitting on my desk long enough. It’s time to share it with you.

With Cheeky Monkey polishes, you do not have to look on the back or the bottom of the bottle to see what the name is. It is written all around the bottle in all different fonts.

So, class…this one is named???? That’s correct: it’s ‘Man Chaser.’

 

It’s a pink with a fuchsia shimmer. Not too unusual but if you would like a pretty pink, this one is such.

I layered ‘Man Chaser’ with this glitter called ‘Dancing Queen.’ Here you see the little black tag that is attached to every bottle of Cheeky Monkey. They are all different. Seriously, I’m not too gaga over this quip.

Dancing Queen is a milky base with iridescent glitter with large hex iridescent glitter.

Do notice, that most of the glitter settles down toward the bottom of the bottle.

So, I’m going to layer it over ‘Man Chaser’ for a bit of pep…

The hex glitter wants to stick only to the top half of my nails. I worked on dabbing some of it down towards the cuticle.

It’s cute; I’m just not gushy over it. I have on 3 coats of ‘Man Chaser‘ and 2 coats of ‘Dancing Queen.’

Some chit chat: I linked Man Chaser to the Hall & Oates song ‘Maneater.’ Want to see the epiphany of ’80’s hair and fashion statements? Check out this video. Also, notice the sax player. Doesn’t he look like the sax player on the Muppets?

Who hasn’t heard any songs by Abba? I linked a video of ‘Dancing Queen’ and, I have a question. How the hell did we get our hair that straight without flat irons? And, what are those little kids doing, dancing in front of the stage? I thought it was supposed to be a disco?

I bug the shit out of my friends because I ask so many questions. I just want to know a lot of things. So, do my questions bug you? ;P

Wednesday’s Pink Has Me Prodigious

On Wednesdays, I wear pink. So do some other nail bloggers. And I highly recommend that you add each one to your follower list.

Today’s pink is all around feminine!

‘Get A Clue’ is from Color Club’s Alter Ego collection. I have deemed ‘Get A Clue’ as my go-to new, pale pink polish.

Who can be offended by this color…

I have 2 coats on. Now, I think that 3 would have done it better justice. One reason is that I can almost see visible nail line on my index finger. And it is user error on the thumb for the streaky-ness. Yet, as a soft, creme polish, it is a GO.

Wanna see how it jazzes up?

Let’s take Sally Hansen’s new crackle, ‘Fuchsia Shock’. And let’s also work with Kleancolor’s ‘Aurora.’

Who’s your baby, now??? Yea…BABY!

I doubt there are many polish-wearers that would create this look and actually wear it. But if you are; Hello, kindred spirit!!!

I have one coat of ‘Fuchsia Shock’ and ‘Aurora’ on. Now, what I wish I would have done is try ‘Aurora’ over the crackle. That just might be a pink mani for a ‘fuchsia’ Wednesday. ;p

These are the polishes used for this look…

Is there any doubt I wear pink on Wednesday?

OPI’s Rally Pretty Pink Takes the Court with Red Shatter

It was time to have some fun with Pink…

Did you pick up the OPI duo from the Serena Williams collection, ‘Rally Pretty Pink’ with ‘Red Shatter’?

So, it IS a different sort of pink…

However, I. am. loving. it.

Purply-pinky glittery stuff.

I could have stopped right there too. But I was way curious to see what the ‘Red Shatter’ would do…

Gee, whiz!!!

Frankly, I am surprised at how well these complimented each other. Or, maybe I should say, they complimented each other better than I expected. I never question OPI’s collections not working together, however. So I was delightfully surprised that I liked this VERY much.

 Me, along with a host of other wonderful nail bloggers are part of On Wednesdays We Wear Pink group. Click here to find others that have some pink-lovin’.

If you have ‘Red Shatter,’ are you thinking about what else you can combine it with? Do you think ‘Rally Pretty Pink’ is just fine alone, too?

I Eat Popcorn When I Watch Drama

It’s Pink already! Actually, I thought it was Thursday today. I asked hubs why he didn’t pick up the trash last night for garbage collection. He told me he’d do it Thursday night and not Tuesday night. Whoa, I was off!! Lucky for me, I got my pink on anyway! So do these loveliest of lovely bloggers. Go see for yourself.

Listen. Do you hear that noise? Seriously, it’s me munching on popcorn…

Popcorn is half the reason I go to the movies. The other half, of course, seeing the movie.

One thing I do not like in my world is drama. Give me my popcorn and just let me sit and watch it, but I don’t want to be in it.

Just ‘Sparrow Me The Drama’…

 From OPI’s Pirates of the Caribbean collection, that’s the name of this cutey, dusty pink. It’s looking a bit too dark in this shade photo. Check out the ones below for a more accurate color.

Here is shows its pretty pink self. For a polish that has the word ‘drama’ in it, there’s not a bit of drama in working with this one. I have 3 coats and no top coat. It doesn’t have a high shine by itself, yet that just adds to the demure look of this pink. In the thumb photo, it has got a streaky point. But, I think another coat would have smoothed it right out.

No denying that this is the color of pink I love. Not like baby-doll lips but a grown-up woman’s pink.  And you KNOW, there are women out there that should really sit down and play with their dolls because out in the real world they will stir up nothing but drama.

Munch, munch, munch!!

OK, that’s corny…..

Are you a popcorn muncher or are you the star of your own drama?

Just Who Do You Pink I Am?

Are you wearing PINK? Well, are you?!!

I am because on Wednesdays We Wear Pink.

This is a very, very serious pink…

By the company that gives you Color Club, here is Cosmetic Arts’ no name pink. I’ll name it ‘Who Do You Pink I Am?

On my toes it goes! This super neon pink is what summer pink is all about. I have on 2 coats and a top coat of Sally Hensen’s ‘Teflon Tuff.’

Don’t hide that pink, wear sandals…

My Mom gave me these sandals; I think they are just darling. I have several summer dresses that these shoes, and this polish, will make pretty.

I haven’t any idea where Mom got these. I think she tried them for herself and found out that she isn’t a ‘heel person’ no matter what the height.

That was nice of her to hand them down to me!

And this summer flower would match perfectly. I think I’ll wear it in my hair to top off the look.

Don’t you think this neon pink is perfect for sandal-wearing?

Go Ahead; Show Us Your Pink

Time to wear pink!! It’s Wednesday….yeeeaaaaaa!

Ulta has some of the cutest mini collections. This one is called ‘Under The Sea.’  And from that collection is ‘Mermaid In Heaven’.

A very vivid fuchsia pink with a gob of gold micro-glitter in it.

Here I have on 2 coats and used Nailene’s ‘Miracle Maker’ as a top coat.  This is the shade I love to wear in the summer. It’s brighter than a pastel, more vivacious and a lot more spunky than just a regular pink polish.

I have several blouses this color because it gives my skin a healthy, pink glow. There’s a feeling of femininity without being a little girl.

There are other nail bloggers that have fun with pink on Wednesdays. Check out my blogger friends here and see what pink they are wearing today.

Wear Pink On Wednesdays And Be Nice

D’oh…I’m off in ‘dramaland’ and not paying attention to the good stuff!  It’s Wednesday and I Wear Pink!!!

So do a bunch of other swell nail bloggers.  Check them out here.

This one is gorgeous…

I, originally, saw the L’oreal display of these at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I posted about it in an ‘I Spy’ segment here.  I ‘had’ to get them. These are the summer-y colors that I adore.

‘Pink Shells’ is beautiful! Sort of a jelly type that has fuchsia shimmers-deluxe. The photos remove some of the blueness of the tone and it is coming out a bit too much like coral. But, trust me, this is not coral!

I have on 3 coats of polish. However, as some other nail bloggers mention about swatches, 2 would have done the trick. 🙂 I’m just so used to doing 3, if I have the time. And I didn’t even bother with a top coat with ‘Pink Shells’. She’s just shiny all by herself.

Here is a close up of the thumb to show that there isn’t any smudges on the nails; that’s all sunlight being caught with the shine.  Here we see a bet truer, fuchsia in the shimmer. Striking, isn’t it?

I guess I show my true non-Floridian self; I don’t wear flip flops and rarely, wear sandals. I think I’ll break out the sandals because ‘Pink Shells’ is MADE for bare toes too.

Do you wear flip flops? Do you have a ‘go-to’ bare toes polish?

That’s Cherry Blossom Pink Cute

Hello, dear readers!  I’ve been away working on family business however, here’s a pink polish for Wednesday.

Boy, did I wait long enough for Wet ‘N Wild’s Bloom collection to show up.  I was eavesdropping reading a  discussion on this collection, on Twitter, and it was stated that someone saw them at Winn Dixie.  The second store I went to, I found them…

I didn’t get the entire collection, but I did get a couple.  Here’s one that I chose…

This is named ‘Cherry Blossom.’  A soft, demure creme pink.  Cute name, lovely color.

This is 3 coats and it couldn’t be more ‘XOXO’ pink.  I’d wear this for an interview, wedding, work presentation, etc.  There should be no one that would be offended by this color.  I think Duchess Kate wore this color for her wedding!!  😉

That is not tip wear that you see; it’s some shrinkage and some lack of wrapping.  I used China Glaze’s ‘Fast Forward’ top coat to build up a shine.

If you cannot get enough pink (and, who can? I mean, I do have ‘PINK’ in my name) jump over to here and check out the many other nail bloggers that On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

Do you like a soft, creme pink?  I think it should be a staple in all nail polish wardrobes, do you?

What Do We Wear on Wednesdays? PINK!

Being a part of ‘On Wednesdays We Wear Pink‘ will be pretty easy for me.  Does it not tie-in with my blog’s theme, or what!  Check out the other awesome nail bloggers that are part of this clutch here.  Be ready to be impressed.

Naturally, I’m going to push the envelope.  Now, I am wearing pink; I just embellished it…

Don’t think for a minute that pink is timid and little girl-like.  This mani is ultra hot and sexy.  I wore Sinful Color’s ‘What’s Your Name’ alone for a day.  It’s a shade that is black with flecks of teal micro-glitter.  It’s a deep color that, on its own, is vampy…

I have on 3 coats here.  So, how can you take a color like this and get a pink mani out of it?  How about China Glaze’s crackle in ‘Broken Hearted’?

You only need one coat of the crackle to get the distressed look.  It dries super fast and to a matte finish.  You’ll need some serious shiny top coat to get it to shine; ‘Broken Hearted’ and all its counterparts from the collection ‘eat topcoat.’  That is, it takes more than just one, or even two coats, to get it to shine.  But when it does, it gets attention…

What do you think about these colors?  If you have the crackles, I bet you are having as much fun with them as I am.
