Wheel E: Taupe Cremes

Today on Nail Wheel Wednesday, taupe cremes and a few secret shimmers. (As usual with wheels, I had trouble color adjusting so all shades showed true—very frustrating.)

  1. this is my fav wheel ever. As you know I love taupe shades. My fav of the wheel is #6... but it's difficult to find an ugly one here!

  2. Wow, i love all taupe colors.. this wheel is really great.

    I didn´t knew that there is also a taupe from Maybelline...

    Thanks for the great swatches!

  3. This is heaven!!! I love taupe nail polishes <3

  4. Lovely! Reader request: Could you please do your teal cremes next? :)

  5. theallamenta, remind me about #6 the next time we swap.

    likeSamantha, the Maybelline is an old one and has been showing up at Dollar Trees.

    Ana, taupe is great, I agree!

    Sara, I might be able to arrange that. :) If there were any particular teals you wanted to see, let me know and I'll include them if I have them.

  6. I love taupes, but some just don't look good on me. I am not familiar with "secret shimmer". Is it brand-related? I love these wheel comparisons,Karen!

  7. Starlight, I think any brand can have secret shimmers (polishes that show shimmer in the bottle that pretty much disappears on the nail except in very bright light and/or at a few particular angles) but some brands do seem to have more of them than others (Chanel to name one).

  8. I had no idea you did colour wheels... THANK YOU!!! I love taupes and the entire wheel makes me giddy. I am happy that I have at least 5 of the colours on this wheel! I can see quite a few more than I want to get now... um..


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :)
