Wheel X7: Taupe and Tan Shimmers

1. Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Sleek Frost (3 coats) [I'm never sure with these if the finish is part of the name or not; this might just be called Sleek, with the Frost part provided for reference; it's actually a rather subtle shimmer for something called Frost]
2. Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle Polished Pearl (3) [ah, Nailgrowth Miracle line, we hardly knew ye]
3. Borghese Almondine (3) [I remember when this color was the "it" polish of the moment]
4. Rescue Beauty Lounge Jane (2)
5. Rimmel Play Fast Street wear (2) [another dead line]
6. Barielle Belly Dance (2)
7. China Glaze Fast Track (3)
8. Essence Colour & Go Irreplaceable (2) [I like this better on the wheel than on my nails]
9. BB Couture for Men John Smith (2)
10. Essie Tartufo (2) [I have no recollection of this polish at all; usually I see the names and go "oh yeah, I remember that"]
11. Sally Hansen Salon Divinity (2) [they did a lot of good colors in this line]
12. Cult Nails Cruisin' Nude (2)
13. Maybelline Express Finish Dreamy Taupe (2)
14. Maybelline Express Finish Galaxy (2)
15. Maybelline Express Finish Matte Galaxy (2) [so much better in the matte version]
16. OPI You're a Doll (3)
17. Butter London Yummy Mummy (2)
18. Mattese Elite Je T'Adore (2)
19. Ulta Professional Strapless (2)
20. Borghese Soave Nude (2)

Bottles 1 through 5:

6 through 9:

10 through 15:

16 through 20:

For some reason, most of these detail shots came out too dark, and I haven't had much luck getting them right via editing, so use them to see the finish, not so much the color. The wheel photo is better for that.

Destash notes: I could let go of 1 if not for liking these old Sally Hansen bottles. 2 through 5 are must keeps. 6 could go, as could 8 and 10 and 14 and 20.


  1. I wear such shades rarely, but I think I'd pick up a few :)

  2. Is it just me or is this wheel kind of relaxing? lol Very nice selection!

  3. wow, this is amazing collection Karen :)

  4. Not really my colours but I do like the Essence :-)

  5. This range of colors is out of my comfort zone, but I like China Glaze Fast Track!

  6. I don't really have much of this type of shade(s) but that wheel is gorgeous! Thank you for putting it together and showing it to us. And for the wonderful photos!

  7. love this kind of shades, i'm using them to relax from bold colors ;)
