Wheel H7: Rose Gold to Copper Foils and Shimmers

Lots of fall colors on today's installment of Nail Wheel Wednesday.

1. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Diamonds Champagne Diamond (3 coats) [not as sparkly as I'd expect from something called Diamonds]
2. Essence Fairytale Pixie Dust (3)
3. Revlon Street Wear Angelic (3)
4. L'Oreal Whimsical (3)
5. Nox Twilight Wine & Dine (3)
6. Nicole by OPI It Starts With Me (3)
7. Orly Rage (3)
8. Boot No. 7 Colour Miracle Russet (2) [love the color; don't love the finish]
9. Milani I'm Online (3)
10. Wet 'n' Wild Chrome Penny for Your Thoughts (3) [nicely comples with the silver and gold mixed in]
11. Ulta Professional Peppermint Bark (3) [my idea of peppermint bark is pink and red, no rose and gold]
12. Massini Frosted Kiss (3) [really belongs on an orange wheel]
13. Anna Sui 506 (3) [rose scented and also gorgeous; want to try layering over a deep wine red]
14. Borghese Siena (3)
15. Orly Rock the World (2) [very nice flecked shimmer; I'd forgotten all about this one]
16. Maybelline Express Finish Bronze Beam (2) [could really use some topcoat; this almost looks like a textured polish, from long before that was a thing]
17. Pixel Oh Golly Gee (5) [crazy sheer for something not sold as a topper; guess I need to try layering this]
18. UMA Cherry Blossom (3)
19. L'Oreal Bijou Prowlers Tamed Terracotta (2)
20. Maybelline Express Finish Autumn Leaves (2)

There's enough variety here that I'm not seeing a lot of destash opportunities, at least not within this one wheel. Maybe one or two of the 5, 7, 9 trio could go, as those look close enough in color and finish to each other that one could fill the role alone. I'm tempted to dump 17 just for being annoying but want to give it a chance to show its worth as a layering polish. My favorite of these is the Anna Sui; the bottle is interesting, the polish is beautiful, plus it smells pretty.


  1. Nr 15 jumped out at me immediately! That one is just so gorgeous, what a pretty colour and golden shimmer! I really like your Anne Sui too!

  2. Haha 15 jump out at me too - then I read what it was - of course! I've got that Orly! :-D

    Some nice ones here 17 is really pretty too :-)

  3. Oh man, I love that Anna Sui bottle!!

  4. i like all colors :) but from this time i would choose no 15 ..nice shimmer
