Silver Nail Polish





Silver nail polish is going to be the trend in nails for Spring and into fall . I have always loved silver polish and thought I'd post a pic of two of my oldie but goodies. They are Fluorine( metallic) from Chanel, and Gunmetal from the Revlon Streetwear line( this was such a great line).


The Chanel isn't showing up overly well, but it is a dove grey/silver metallic with a hint of lilac. The Gunmetal is a hardcore silver, darker, shimmery. Both are great, I reach for the Streetwear more often. It is very molten looking. Thats what you want in a good silver polish.


Some of the runways had the most amazing silver metallic nails , like foil. I loved it. This one from Chanel Spring 2007 is one would love to see at the counters.

No doubt most of the top companies will have some great silvers at the ready, plus you can do like I did, and dig through the stash you already have.

You know I am not a nail polish person. BUT when I do wear it...I love silver, pewter, gun metal...love those colors. Real rock n roll style color. And really does go with anything! Also, I alternate between pewter and red for the Bucs games...that's another fashion story!

Hi, I was just wondering, have you ever heard of these nail files? They work on Acrylic and natural nails. I have tried them and they are incredible! I’ve never heard of anything like them before. They are much healthier for your nails than any other nail file out there. They are made of crystal, so they are also earth friendly. They are also non-porous so they don’t absorb bacteria! I have been trying to spread the word about these things so here is their website... Top Notch Nail Files.

I only do clear nail polish on my finger nails, but I am definitely going to pick up a bottle of silver for my toes!
