Also, I know I said (somewhere) that drugstore brands are ususally too crappy for me, but I spotted this and just had to have it:Yep. Revlon (gasp!) nail enamel in Midnight Affair. I don't have a colour like this, and needed one. I need all the dark colours.
Actually I saw a really great article the other day when I was surfing one of my favorite sites, popsugar.com: http://www.refinery29.com/trend_spotting/2010_nail_color_trends.php. (sorry, I don't remember how to post hyperlinks, I haven't used html in years and I'm too lazy to go look it up). Yes, the top ten runway-inspired nail polish shades for 2010. If you refer to my last article (ahem), it seems I was bang-on about a couple of the trends. Periwinkle, metallic forest green (yay!), peach (ditto! they even show the Chanel shade I want! Along with Particuliere - yes, I changed my mind about that one too. Me wants...), and "uniform" blue (huh? again? will my Essie Mesmerize from last year work?) chunky gold glitter (yaaay! I love glitter! And how BADLY do I want that RBL Look Rich Be Cheap, but its almost as much as a Chanel polish.. Be Cheap my ass...) (Are all RBL Polishes that expen$ive? I may have to search for dupes...), nude polish (duh - got that covered) persimmon (?) (I may sound extremely obtuse here but how does this differ from coral?) (the example they list is OPI Hot N' Spicy, which I just may check out, but would my new NYX polish in Mango Cafe qualify as "persimmon"?), lavender (of course. I need to find one with no shimmer), mint green (still huge) and what they called "Black and Blue". Yeah. Sometimes I know my wallet wishes I didn't read articles like this.
