Friday Favorite with a Flair June 22, 2012

wet n wild and opi nail polish
 Here's another edition of my Friday Favorite with a Flair.  I am starting to realize that my "flair" pretty much consists of an accent nail.  I think I may take a trip to Sally's and pick up some little rhinestones or something or this is going to get pretty boring for you guys:)
Although I love Wet N Wild On a Trip (the purple), my "Favorite" for this week is OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui.  This is from the 2010 OPI Hong Kong Collection (shown below).  I also own Jade is the New Black and Pearl of Wisdom from that collection.  I love this shade of blue and it applies so nice and evenly...that is why it has been a favorite of mine for years.

The reason I decided to put these two colors together is because I have a pair of workout pants from Victoria's Secret that has these two colors on the waistband (shown below).  Every time I put them on I think to myself that they look so cute together and that I need to try them on my nails.  They seem to be in the same jewel tone family. I was also going to add a raspberry color, but I still don't know how I feel about having more than 2 colors on my nails (I like it on others.).  I'm 35 and sometimes feel like I'm a tad too old for an accent nail??? but oh well, I like it - so I will continue to rock it:)

  1. Ha ha I'm the same way! Accent nail = instant flair!! And I'm 41 and I still do accent nails. Most times it's because I can't decide what color to wear, so I'll wear 2 (sometimes 3). Actually, for the Hunger Games premiere, I wore 9 colors from the ChG collection--just mixed it up. (There were 3 I didn't care to buy.)

    But most times it's just an accent nail for me. Sometimes I'm sad when I get to the 10th nail & realize I didn't paint the accent...oh well, it's coming off in 3 days anyway, right?

    BTW, those colors look really good on you!

    1. Funny you say that about forgetting and painting the accent nail...I did that with these and had to take it off. And I had both polishes ready, etc. I just kept on painting!

  2. Very cute mani! It took me a while to get into accent nails because I kept thinking the same thing. I'm going to be 34 next month. Then I decided who cares! Most people honestly don't notice any way.

    1. No, the only people that notice are the ones that are into nails and do it themselves....so they aren't making fun of me:) My daughters love it - so at least they think their mom is cool.

    1. actually, I just looked on Amazon and it's on there for $5.90! Amazon is a great place to buy because you don't have to bid, etc.
