a little giveaway...

I don't paint my nails much anymore - they don't stay nice for very long because of the jewelry making and all.  When I do, I like to stick with red, deep plum or pale pink.

I don't know what happened to me but look what I picked up for the holiday season (my daughter probably just fainted). 

How fun is this silver nailpolish?  I like it so much I'm giving a bottle away to one of you.

Just leave me a comment on this post answering the question...Do your toenails and fingernails always match or are you a mismatch sort of girl? (surprise surprise, I like to match).

Didn't Thanksgiving week just get a tad better?

Winner announced on Monday!

Mine never match only because my nails are never painted... if they are it's usually clear. I can't stand how quickly they chip! xo

Diana Mieczan said...

I mostly mismatch them...I like to have two different colours for fun:) This is a beautiful nailpolish:)
Have a great day,sweetie

Oh, Jeanette, I am ashamed to say not only am I mismatched, I am chipped! I am treating myself to a manicure tomorrow for T'giving, though! XX!

I rarely if ever paint my fingernails and when I do it is Essie's ballet slippers or mademoiselle. My toes however are always VERY bright!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I love to have my toe nails painted - I especially like to get a cool base color (this past summer my fav was lime green!) and then get a cool design and a gem (or two) painted on my two big toe nails! Working with kids - my "summer" toes are always a topic of discussion!

But - I don't match, only because I rarely get a manicure! Looking forward to a pedi soon so I have cute toes for Christmas and our visit to the desert!

dreamday said...

if i get a manicure the color HAS to match my toes or else it drives me crazy!!! ...and i love this color! great holiday neutral. have you tried shellac/gel polish yet? the bottom of your nail will grow out before the top chips!!! well worth the $30 for a manicure that looks good for more than 2 weeks.

I'm chuckling over your daughter reading this and going all faint on you! :) I am totally mismatched, I rarely paint my nails - just my toenails on occasion. I'm afraid I'm a constantly-chipped type of gal :)

Nicole said...

I'm bad because mine don't match. Right now I have on false nails so the beauty shop does them and I don't have the matching color at home.

My fingernails are brittle, they go 'ping' at the slightest contact. I usually only do them in color for an occasion. Once they are at something close to the same length I try to keep a clear strengthener on them. I usually only paint my toenails in the summer so then I match up. My favorite color is a mid-plum (darker plum in winter). Going away for Thanksgiving so next on my list of chores is to 'paint' my fingernails.

I love love love silver nail polih!!

I only ever paint my toes :)

MJM said...

The daughter did faint a bit... And if my nails are painted, they HAVE to match my toes. I've tried to mismatch and it never lasts long.

I'm out.

Maria said...

I NEVER paint my fingernails anymore - but all 3 of the little men in my house insist that I pint my toes - they prefer a bright pink or red. The two year old little man swoons and tells me how beautiful they are each time change the color. The six year old little man usually picks the color out, and the 40 year old little man - well, he just smiles.

Kristin said...

I usually always go light on my mani and dark on my pedi. Right now my toes are sportin' Chanel's Rouge Fatal..a deep dark red!

Are you just the cutest thing ever? I got such a sweet package in the mail today! Will get a longer email off to you. I go clear or ballet slippers on my nails and bright or French on my toes. The silver will be pretty for someone for Holiday! Wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving, Jeanette...

Just like you I've stuck to the same shade [coral] for many many years.

The other day I really went for a massive departure and painted my toenails black and I've gotta say I LOVE them!

Cpt. V not so much [snips about being a goth have been heard on more than one occasion].

I would love to give silver a try especially coming into the festive season.

It will be adorning my toes, the fingers don't ever last more than 5 minutes.
