Metallic Monday

The Life of a Ladybug posted an interesting question last week where she asked (literally): What's your thing? Meaning, what are your current beauty obsessions? Red lips? Brightly painted nails? Smoky eyes? For me, I'm rocking the metallics recently. So in that theme, here are my current tips & toes.

ULTA brand polish in Burnt Sugar (free with reward coupon! yes!)

Essie in Ritzy Business (on sale for $3! yes!)

Ritzy Business is a unique color and difficult to describe: some sort of gold/silver/bronze metallic hybrid. There might be a reason that it was in the sale bin. As is typical of the Essie polishes that I've tried, it suffers from uneven application. That being said, I'll continue to use it because I love the color. I bought an orange dress for a few weddings this summer and I think this polish will look awesome with it.

I hope everyone has a gold-star week!

Here's a surprise... I got it at ULTA! It was part of the Essie Fall '07 collection but was a "special edition" exclusive to ULTA. It isn't even listed on the site any more. I found it on sale ($3) in a bin. Happy hunting...
