The Lipstick League - Week of 10.3.16

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

Quick polish check (because we’re nosy like that)! What’s currently on your tips and toes? 

G's answer: I'm all about the cremes at the moment. Tips: Revlon Totally Toffee (a nice, warm, caramel shade). Toes: Zoya Sailor (an opaque, easy-to-wear navy that goes with everything).

  1. Tip right now are an un-named Purple gel with white polka-dots. They match the outfit I wore for a race today. Toes are OPI Can't find my Czech book. Because... Blue

  2. Tips are W&W Heatwave and the toes are W&W Club Havana. Both are the megalast formulas.

  3. Wet N Wild So Berry On Trend. I love this shade for fall!

  4. Tips: Delush "Kingslayer", toes Anchor & Heart "Midnight Embers" I rarely wear anything but indie polish anymore

  5. I'm so lazy lately, though I've had a bad cold. Toes have some LE Wet n Wild polish, a pale lavender, from a couple years back. Fingers have a red-orange shade gold shimmer and flakes, from Essence, and one accent nail has Essie's new Starry Starry Night, which I found on clearance at Marshall's. I need to re-do it all once the cold is past, though. For about 9 to 10 days of wear, though, the polish has held up well on my fingernails.

  6. We just came home from a pedi. I have Zoya Estelle( nice transition color from Summer to Fall) and Julie is wearing Zoya Mason. I just did my nails with some fingerpaints press on nails in a cool flowery french mani. I got them at the 99 cents store last summer. They look really good( after I cut them down some and square them off) and they last about a week.
