Over Thanksgiving weekend, I wore the festive Zoya "Shivon."

"Shivon" is a metallic red with gold shimmer on top. This is one of my favorite nail polishes. It has a flash of gold, but the base color is blue-toned, so it still looks good on my cool-tone pale skin.
Earlier in the week, I tried to paint my nails with my favorite nail color from last fall, Revlon's "Gray Suede," but the polish has gotten goopy.

"Gray Suede" is a gorgeous taupe with a slight shimmer, which wasn't picked up in my picture. I love the color, so I will try polish thinner to spruce up the polish or buy a new bottle. Unfortunately, I was busy preparing for Thanksgiving, and I ruined this manicure within an hour.
A week ago, I was wearing Essie "Lady Like," a lovely creamy mauve color.

All last week (and still now), I wore Essie "Size Matters" on my toenails.

"Size Matters" is a dark blue-tone creamy red. You could probably get away with just one coat, but I'm clumsy and almost always apply two coats to mask any mistakes from the first-coat application. In fact, I am such a clutz that I somehow got this polish on the bottom of my feet and tracked it along my hardwood floors.
