Wheel U2: Peach and Brick Shimmers

Most of the polishes for today's Nail Wheel Wednesday are older releases, as these sorts of orangey brown-toned colors aren't quite so popular now as they once were.

  1. Whoa Nelly.. I LOVE THESE! When I read the title I expected different colours! I don't like girly peaches or brick red because I don't think they suit my Asian skintone. But some of these I can easily wear.. what a gorgeous palette these make!!

    thank you for taking the time to do this!

  2. Once again: gorgeous nail wheel Karen! Thanks for sharing!

  3. All gorgeous! I really like the goldie bottle! lol.

  4. I really like #5! But they're all pretty. :)

  5. These are pretty to look at, and I think they're really wearable on my skin tone, for the most part. I was just thinking I needed a good peachy color. And a mauve!

  6. That goldie bottle is so so cute! Love all these colours, number 6 is probably my favorite:)

  7. Those colors are PERFECT for the season--All of them!

  8. You are hands down my favorite blog. I love these colors!!


  9. Wow, China Glaze Chiarascuro looks so cool! I can see why you picked that one up. I'm a sucker for those flashes of colour, too!


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) Starting 15-Jul-2020, I will be moderating comments until the spate of spammers looking for sexy times eases up.
