Wheel Y3: Peach and Warm Brown Shimmers

If there were a contest for the wheel least representative of my current nail personality, the one featured in this week's installment of Nail Wheel Wednesday would be a serious contender. Looking at these bottles, I can't remember how or why some of these got into my stash. It's been years since I wore pale peach polish with any regularity, and I've pretty much purged warm browns from my wardrobe. But then I look at the tips on the wheel and I think "ooh, nice shimmer" and "so pretty"—that's how I ended up with so many Helmers.

1. Cover Girl Boundless Color Pink Champagne (3 coats)
2. Maybelline Express Finish unknown (3)
3. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sand Lots (3)
4. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sugar Babe (3)
5. Orly Gilded Coral (3)
6. Wild & Crazy Flying Kite (3) [kite? no idea]
7. Cover Girl NailSlicks Twilight Mauve (3) [mauve?]
8. Revlon Street Wear Stain (4) [did they mean Satin?]
9. Avon Nailwear Pro Rose Gold (2)
10. Sally Hansen No Chip 10 Day Constant Iris (4) [I have seen iris flowers this color; I guess someone at Sally H. did too]
11. Piggy Polish All The Glitters (3) [would make more sense if this were glittery or had strong gold shimmer]
12. Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Cinnabar Opal (4)
13. L'Oreal Wear Extraordinaire Sheer Breathless (3)
14. Revlon Iced Mauve (2) [again with the mauve; I think mauve needs way more purple in it]
15. Nicole by OPI Coral Denominator (3) [this doesn't really belong on this wheel, but apparently I needed it to fill out the set of 20 at this point]
16. CQ Rustic Dream (3)
17. OPI Chocolate Shakespeare (3)
18. L'Oreal Be Bronze (3)
19. OPI Live from New York It's OPI (3)
20. OPI Bronzed to Perfection (3) [has mini flakies]

  1. lol #15 is also my favorite even though you said it doesn't belong in the group :D

  2. I love your nail wheels. Some of the bronze shades look really nice. Have noted a few to ponder over. Thanks for showing.

  3. LOL I laughed so hard that my husband asked what I read - but it's so true, maybe because when those colors were really in the first time - they were so new and intense, that we couldn't get enough LOL
    Thanks for sharing!
    15. Nicole by OPI Coral Denominator is very nice though, but as you say doesn't really belong :)

  4. light shiny browns were basically all I would wear on my nails for a few years lol I still like them :)

  5. I love your nail wheels because they inspire me to explore my collection more!! Like everyone above I love #15!

  6. I also picked out 15!
    But I really like OPI Bronzed.

  7. haha nice shimmer thats a good excuse to pick up a polish im sure we all have been there.. :) lol i love L'Oreal Wear Extraordinaire Sheer Breathless, i will so wear it ^.^

  8. lol I had a few of these shades of polish in my collection. the shimmer from them are so pretty!

  9. I know Nicole by OPI Coral Denominator doesn't belong on the wheel, but holy crap it's gorgeous!


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.
