A couple of recent colors

Hello there. It's been a busy week and I'm very glad tomorrow is Friday. The only bummer is that there's no Formula 1 race this weekend or ANY weekend in fact until the end of the month. At my house we do love our Formula 1 Sundays.

In any event, I thought I'd share some recent manicures. No real theme other than I have the photos and I wanted to post!

This is Kleancolor Metallic Green. I got some not-so-nice comments on this one along with some raves. Green nail polish is very polarizing for some reason, I guess. I like it. It's a very glowy polish. If you are into this sort of thing, it would make a good St. Patrick's Day manicure.

I have to say though that the not-so-nice comments took the fun out of wearing it a little bit. So it didn't give me the usual joy to look at it.

Someone on MUA mentioned they got this color for stamping, so maybe I'll try another fishnet manicure with this as the accent color.

I was in the mood for another holo recently and I remembered that I have a couple of Sally Hansen Prisms. Unbelievably I found these in a local Dollar Tree. I feel like so many people find treasures at their Dollar Trees and mine are always nail polish wastelands. But one time I got lucky!

This is Purple Diamond.

I don't know if this is true for all of the Prisms, but this one has a very strong holo effect. It's even visible in relatively low light.

You'll have to forgive the leftovers of Metallic Green on my cuticles. It was stain-y!

I never find good nail polishes at Dollar Tree either. But I always keep looking, and it's handy because it's right next to Sally's.

I like the green but I really love that purple prism. Wow. It annoys me how people's comments on my nail polish can change the way I think about them. Last weekend my mom said that my fingers looked "sick", and I don't think she meant it in a "wow, totally awesome" kind of way, I think she meant my fingers looked ill. So I'm kind of turned off on yellow polishes right now.

My mom has mostly given up commenting on it, which is nice.

Most of the time I don't care too much what people say...they are entitled to their opinion...but sometimes it just kind of bums me out about that specific polish. Buzzkill!

I don't understand why people feel the need to criticize something like nail polish. I mean, it's not like you're forcing them to wear whatever color it is they hate! Some people apparently think that if they have an opinion, they're required to share it....

Exactly. And it's hard *not* to take it personally because it is a form of self-expression.

Also it depends on who says it. Coming from someone important to you, it means more than some random stranger.
