I was torn between two shades for this week’s Mani Monday and the winner was Strangebeautiful’s Color Connector Nail Polish duo in Cinder and Oscar Wilde. I’ve wanted to try a Strangebeautiful polish ever since Michelle at All Lacquered Up featured them but didn’t want to shell out almost $80 for a whole set. When these duos came out at Anthropologie (a store I wish I could go crazy in for my new apartment), I snapped up a few and didn’t have a chance to use one of them until now.
Now please excuse my nails, cuticles and the application… I’m not done unpacking since my move last week and I’m planning to get a manicure when I’m all done. Until then, I am cuticles and all!
The shades are all up my alley because I absolutely adore cremes. I think I may have said that before. The shade on my nails is Cinder. This ash gray goes on smoothly and 2 coats gave me creamy gray perfection. In some lighting it appears to have a slight green tint to it so maybe it will help me keep up with the military chic trend for fall.
What’s on your nails this week?
