NOTD: Sinful Silly Alix

Good Day!

This is todays nail, Sinful Colors "Silly Alix", which to me resembles a peachy golden shimmer shade.
I love golds in theory and in the bottles, but well on my nails they look... um... not that good! Ever experienced this phenomenon; loving shades in theory, only to discover you don't like them on? I do that quite often, may it be nail polish, eye shadow or lipstick... ;)
Anyway, this went on smoothly, but was very sheer, so four coats were needed... (those sheer polishes are a pita.... lol!)







How do you feel about golds?

See you soon ;)

I think this is very pretty! I haven't ever seen it before. I like peach-y colors. I don't really have a lot of gold polishes. I have the same problem with liking the color in the bottle but not liking it on me.

Hi Tillyness86!
Great!! If you're lacking patience like me, it's frustrating to wait for those goodie parcels to arrive, isn't it? ;)

Hi Olivia!
Thanks! I really like the color per se, it's just that I think it would probably look prettier on someone elses nails... lol! Good to hear I'm not alone :D

Hi Aileen!
Thank you so much! :)

This is a pretty color. I think it looks pretty on you. I have lots of gold polishes. I do love them. I keep trying to find the perfect gold. I don't know if I have yet. I haven't tried them all. I used Sally Hansen HD blue tonight. I used 3 coats and I still have bald spots. I didn't notice that until I went into the bathroom where it's nice bright. I hate that. So glad your back. I left you a message but I don't see it. Hope you got it.

Vanessa said...

Hi there Lucy!
What? You haven't tried all available gold polishes yet?!? LOL! :)
You're right on, it's all about finding the right shade, I'll continue my search ;)

Mary said...

I love that shade on you! It looks kind of peachy/gold in the pictures. But 4 coats, that's not fun :)

tuli said...

I think the same as you about gold and sheer like that, and usually don't like these kinds of colors on my nails, but I have to say that this one looks very good on you, so you sure made me think....:-)

Vanessa said...

Hi Mary!
Thanks!
Yes, it is a peachy/gold - and I agree, those sheers aren't fun, it has to be a spanking awesome shade to be worth it ;)

Hi Tuli!
Thank you so much; keep up the "brainstorming" LOL!

I have some smaller issues with gold on my nails. I don't know why, though.. I think this was a pretty colour anyway!

Hi Krista!
Thank you!
I can imagine you look great wearing golds with your coloring ;)

Velvet said...

Hey girl! I'm so glad to see you on-line! I like the new lay out on the blog. I know what you mean,about liking a color in theory. Golds do not look good on me either. I like them,but my skin isn't dark enough. To wear them well.
