Today I celebrate the one-year anniversary of The Silver Nail. I truly could not have done it without each and every one of you, so…
Thank you to:
- Readers and commenters, whether you’ve been dropping in for a year or whether this is your first visit
- Fellow bloggers, who inspire and challenge me
- Nail polish companies, who create all the wonderful looks we love
Looking back at my earliest posts, I could just about cringe. Less than optimal manicures and photos abounded. But I learned, and I still have a lot of room to improve. Since I’m in a nostalgic mood I wanted to bring back the very first polish I showed you — this time with better pictures — Runway Diva from Misa. It’s a glossy mauve or rose pink with outstanding durability and wear time. This is just one coat under indirect outdoor light:
But since this old dog strives to learn new tricks, I thought I’d spice up the look with a really fun glitter from Ninja Polish called Sticks ‘n Stones. It’s a clear base with micro, hex, square, and bar glitter in black and white that looks great over medium-toned polishes. Red, pink, blue, gold, pick your favorite. I probably wouldn’t wear it over black or white because then you wouldn’t see half the glitter. There’s also a tiny bit of multicolored microglitter.
One of the things I like about Sticks ‘n Stones is that none of the glitter shapes overpowers the others. Here’s one coat of it with a few extra dabs, topped off with a clear top coat:
Hope you like it, because I bought a second bottle — full-sized, brand new, unopened — and am giving it away!
Just go to the Giveaway tab on my Facebook page. (see picture) There will be no requirements other than you must “Like” my Facebook page, and you must have a continental U.S. mailing address because of postal regulations. You can earn an extra entry by Tweeting about the giveaway.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading The Silver Nail and helping me to prove that great nail looks truly have no age limit!
