Here is a quick nail polish entry.
Earlier this week, I went to a salon, Hino Hairstyles, to check out a particular brand of nail polish that I have wanted to try out. Hino was excellent for the exercise because 1) the price was clearly marked on the display board [that’s generally a must for my shopping] and 2) they had swatches of each and every polish that they have. In general, I like seeing things in person before purchasing them.
For colors, they carry OPI, China Glaze and Zoya- I have not tried any of these brands. They also have some other nail coat and remedy brands.
I went in to see the China Glaze.
I also got a couple of Zoya. I hardly ever get anything for the name alone, especially nail colors, but if you know me well enough, you will get the reference.
And I am glad that I like these two colors, as well as that I didn't already have anything close to them.
Mieko is “A rosy pinkwith a touch of orange and tons of bold metallic gold shimmer. More glamorous than the usual pink!”
Lo is “Bright, warm, medium pink creme with strongcoral undertones. A unique summer pink that really flatters a tan.” I am incapable of tanning yet I am going towear this color!
I wish the gold shimmer in Mieko showed better in the pictures. I tried different angles and camara settings to no avail. And yes, I painted the ring fingernails with the companion color.
They do not currently have a color named “Jennifer.” *Sad face*
