Wheels D1 & E1: Pink Cremes from Light to Dark

In an effort to be methodical about documenting my stash prior to de-duping it I started with the topmost drawer in the Helmer on the upper left in my Helmer tower block and swatched all the pink cremes I found which I hadn't already put on wheels (you may remember L and M). I found enough for two wheels. Some of these are dark enough pinks that they would be perfectly happy on a red wheel, but I declared them pink for the purposes of this exercise.

In other news, here's peek behind the curtain at my life outside of nail polish for those of you who made it to the end of this entry—the back end of my car after I got hit driving home last night:

The other side looks just as bad. I'm fine, just a little stiff and sore, but my poor car is so not fine. It could have been much worse, I know; still, my poor car.


  1. Oh my God, I'm so glad that you're alright! That could have been so bad.

  2. Happy to know ur fine!

    I love pink polish, i have so many im even stopping buying pinks.

  3. I love all the pinks. What a nasty bump on your car hope you are alright:)

  4. I feel so bad for the accident! A month ago I was involved in a hit and run and couldn't even drive away with my car they ruined my back suspension =[. But I love all those colors!

  5. I'm so glad you are fine! That's the most important thing, car doesn't count at all. *hug*

    You're killing me with those nail wheels, especially if they're pinks. :)))

  6. Oh no! I'm glad that you weren't hurt.

  7. Oh my goodness! I'm glad you are okay! Hope you aren't sore for long.

    As always, what an amazing collection you have! I loved seeing all the fun pinks! :)

  8. Loved the pinks!
    so sorry about your car:{

  9. I'm so glad you are ok! Poor car.

    Pink is not really my color by it's a nice collection!

  10. I'm glad you're fine !
    I would love to find Revlon polishes, I see some pretty nice pinks on your wheels !

  11. oh wow. sorry to hear about the accident. glad you're okay!

  12. Thank goodness you're ok! *hugs*

  13. I'm sorry to see what happened to your car. But I'm happy that you're fine! I hope it'll get fix soon.

  14. That's terrible about your car. :( I'm glad you were not hurt any worse. That is soooo unsettling.

    Hopefully, the pink and reds make you feel better. I feel good liking at all the lovelies. :)

  15. Iam so sorry about your car but glad you are ok. Feel better.

  16. Oh!! Your poor car!!

    I hope you are ok!!!

    ps...your color wheels are beautiful.

  17. That's horrible.. I wonder what the driver was doing when he/she hit you :/ At least you (or anyone else) weren't hurt. I just got hit too, but it was a light one and there were no scratches or dents at all.

    PS: My car is also white (:

  18. I'm so glad you are ok! :)

    Love the colors! :)

  19. Poor you! I hope you feel better soon!
    The pink cremes are lovely though :)

  20. Sorry about your car, but the main thing is that you're fine!
    These wheels are just stunning! I'd have all the shades, seriously.. :)

  21. Thanks for the good thoughts, everyone! My car is in the shop now and should be all fixed sometime in the next few weeks. We might even be able to recover half of our deductible from the other driver's insurance company.

  22. I'm glad you're ok! That looks really bad. Feel better soon!

    I love pinks so much. This is the best post ever. I really could look at these all day lol.


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.
