The Art of Making Your Nails Prance

(Here’s the beginning credits….my giveaway for a muscle massager closes on 12/30/10, 8 PM EST)

Wet ‘N Wild kicked some serious boo-tee with their limited Holiday collection.  Most stores were out of it before Thanksgiving.

I found this polish from the Holiday collection behind a display at the cash wrap in Walgreens this week.  So much for cosmetics department understanding sales.  That’s why there is a merchandising industry.  Companies cannot rely on the associates at the store level to display their products properly.  And, as long as that is true, I’ll always have clients to work for.

I found ‘Prancer’.  I knew it was going to be a top coat.  And I didn’t want to use stark white as a base.  So I chose an old Avon polish called ‘Salma’s Hope.’  The collection was to raise money for breast cancer awareness.  This was a super pale pink…

I’m not fond of this polish at all.  It makes my nails look terribly yellow.  And they are not.  But that thumb nail is gross.

Regardless, I only used this color, in hopes that, it would highlight ‘Prancer.’

Large, chunky red glitter with some micro glitter spun throughout.

Sunny window hides nothing.  There’s a cat hair on my pinky and my cuticles, sigh, well, I’m not biting them, hardly picking at them but nonetheless, it’s all gross.  Blech.

Here with outdoor light on a cloudy day, I think ‘Salma’s Hope’ makes my nails look dirty.  And the combination would best be suited for St. Valentine’s Day.  I haven’t removed this mani yet.  I bet it gives me one more thing to complain about.

Did you get a chance to grab some of the Holiday collection from Wet ‘N Wild?  What other color could I put on for a base coat for ‘Prancer’?  Have you ever Pranced????

  • Maybe Prancer would look nice over a dark base coat? I've never worn a RED glitter top-coat so I'm not speaking from experience here, just suggesting! 😛

  • Cute glitter! Not so fond of the white polish, the red bling on top though makes it all christmas-like, yay!

  • try it over navy blue or a near black polish! 😀 😀 pretty pretty lacquer and i agree w u on off-whites :/
