Wheel U: Silvers and Friends

If you read yesterday's entry and thought me having four almost identical vampies was bad, just click away now, because today's Nail Wheel Wednesday flirts with "that chick's a hoarder" territory. After I did the cremes and glitters and shimmers wheels, I still had three snowmen to swatch, the foils. Doing a foil wheel seemed logical, but I've got my stash arranged (for now, anyway) by color, not finish, so rather than look for all colors of foils, I concentrated on silvers plus a couple cool colors I had in my swatching queue, then I filled in with silver shimmers that were right next to the silver foils in that Helmer drawer. (I'm not even 100% sure I got all the silver foils; sometimes it's hard to tell in the bottle.)

5. Snowman green foil
6. Orly Shine
7. Wet 'n' Wild Toast
8. China Glaze Cheers to You
9. Milani PC Girl
10. Massini Fall Promo Shade
11. Hema 11 [well, that worked out nicely; shade #11 in slot #11]
12. Ulta Twisted Tinsel
13. Maybelline Express Finish Silver Aluminum
14. Snowman silver foil [which looks more pewter next to these true silvers]
15. Sally Hansen Salon Shooting Star
16. Cover Girl Mattalic Triple Platinum [as the name implies, this dries matte; I got this in a swap and would love to know what other colors this line had in it]
17. L'Oreal Concorde
18. Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep
19. Revlon Street Wear Silver Lining
20. Nina Ultra Pro Velvet Revolver

Even I, queen of excess, can't justify having all of these silvers. I am sure I could lose at least half of them and not even notice. Resolution for
2011: have that blog sale I've been talking about.

That should have wrapped up the snowmen as far as wheels went, except I just came across one I didn't have in a Rite Aid slightly outside my usual hunting grounds. Of course it came home with me; it's a light gold sparkly shimmer:

While we're on the topic of snowmen, here's a picture from earlier this month of one of the mosh pits that Meijer has them in:


  1. Hahaha, that's crazy! I don't even own a single silver! :(

  2. There are so many colors I´d like to have!

  3. I love the moshpit of snowmen! :D

  4. The snow men look like they're having a good time!

  5. You have a lot of silver! I think red is what I have most.

  6. I prefer the darker silvers over the lighter ones. I own one silver polish, haha.

Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
