On Nnenna’s Nails #5: Like an Astronaut!

Silver* Joe Fresh Tin, Purple* Zoya Neeka, Gold* Nails Inc. Lanesborough Place

So I call these my astronaut nails!  I was hunting for the perfect metallic silver for a while and I think I found it at Joe Fresh!  This color totally makes me think of outer space and bloggy friend Janette said that it reminded her of the show Roswell (which I’ve never seen, but it’s apparently about aliens, so I can see the connection!).  For my accent nail, I chose a purple with glitter flecks from Zoya Nail polish.  However, upon closer inspection, I realized that the glitter flecks were gold.  I wasn’t happy with the overall look, so I switched up the accent nail to gold.  It think the silver and gold look better together- like mixing metals!

Tell me: Which one do you like better?

Also, just in case you hadn’t heard, I’m doing a little experiment and attempting to post every day this week, so don’t forget to keep checking back! =)

    I like both! I do see what you mean about the gold and silver together … it would be so fun with mixed-metal accessories. :)

    I love the purple and silver – I really need a good metallic polish as well…if only I were closer to Joe Fresh!

  5. This covers great for a metallic! Is the silver only two coats?

      Yep, that’s just two coats of the silver! It went on a little streaky on the first coat, but that’s easily fixed in round two. Also, I’ve decided that I like the silver and gold better without a top coat- it makes the metallic truer :)

    Oooh! I like the purple! BTW, did you get your Zoya polishes yet (I think I remember you tweeting that you ordered some when they were doing that promotion). I ordered mine a while ago and still haven’t gotten them…but I suppose maybe it’ll take a while since they have to ground ship them.

    Good luck with your posting. Every day this week? I am in awe of you.

      Thank you lady- the purple is getting more votes that I thought it would! Yes, I did get my Zoya nail polishes in the middle of last week so I would expect that yours should be on their way to you soon!

      Haha, thanks! It’s something I’ve been meaning to try out to see if I can handle it. Lately I’ve been having so many post ideas and I want to get them all out there! :)

        I got a shipping invoice in my email this morning! Yay. They must have seen my concern on your blog and thought they’d better send them off to me right away… ;)
