My Stash & Wishlist

Here is my stash... it's not much, but I bet its bigger than your BF's.... ;)

You may be wondering where a man would keep his nail polishes.... I found a box in my closet with my paintball stuff in it... How perfect is this???

And, of course, this has me wondering... Is a "manly man", playing "manly paintball", still "manly" if a paintball splats paint on his nails? Would nail color be "manly" if it was applied at 300fps from an airgun? Just another random thought about the "macho BS" version of masculinity....

* "prismatic" - I know of two kinds of "holo" in the polish world. One is the linear holo effect of SpectraFlair SF-35 pigment. This is a "coordinated" effect - adjacent pigment grains produce colors that are adjacent in the spectrum - the rainbow color shift is observed across the whole nail. The other "holo" is produced by very small pieces of holographic glitter, like the material in OPI "Save Me". Each glitter particle reflects incoming light into a rainbow, but the glitter flakes are not coordinated with each other. So, adjacent glitters can appear to have very different colors, and a nail with this glitter shows a multitude of bright sparkles of random color. To differentiate this effect from the effect of a linear holo, I call this second type "prismatic", because each glitter flake acts like a miniature prism. I recommend this naming convention to everybody....


  1. Awesome blog & collection! I am also in love with your top 3 favorites. Seriously.. That bar glitter in Save Me is jaw-dropping! I think most people call the prismatic type holo a "scattered" holo. My favorite is the spectraflair linear holo though. My H hasn't painted his nails but he appreciates my polishes. He's got a thing for car paint and is totally floored by the quality in nail polishes. I think you would really like Rescue Beauty's Anne. :)

  2. I'm jealous of your BB Couture collection!

    I think you would like OPI Romeo and Joliet also. Its a brown that leans red. Very hard to describe but one of my favorite OPI shades. If you find an extra La Boheme keep me in mind OK? Its on my lemming list too!
