Nailed It!

Remember my last post about wedding nails? Well, I’m bringing it up because I just bought three different nail colors to try out. Get ready, ladies. This is definitely going to be a picture-heavy post.

The first color is “Give Peach a Chance” by OPI for Sephora.

The second is “Orgasm” by NARS. Could they have given it a more awkward name?

And the third, “The Glimmer Twins in Gold,” is really more of an accent color.

So I tried each color out individually.

Then I tried to get fancy. I put a gold stripe on the “Give Peach a Chance” finger so it’s sort of like a French manicure with a twist. Then I dabbed a little gold glitter on the base of the nail coated in “Orgasm” by NARS. On the gold nail, I just went crazy with the glitter.

This is where you come in, hive. I need y’all to help me choose. Which of the three colors, if any, gets your vote? What about the designs?

Here’s one more picture showing all three in sunlight, but if you think they are all equally horrible, please don’t hesitate to tell me so! I’m open to suggestions.

    I like the “Orgasm” color (well that was awkward), the peach color looks good in the bottle but IMO it looks too white on your nails, and I don’t like gold nails so I’m biased there.

    I like the “orgasm” nail on it’s own. It’s pretty, it’s simple, and I love the color.

    The gold one looks green? Nice nail polish choices! I like the orgasm with the sparkle. NARS is famous for their orgasm multi and blush which are supposed to make you look perfectly flushed, like you just had an orgasm…. so the colour name kind of makes sense then.

    Orgasm by NARS is my favorite by far!

    I like the orgasm one (ooh that -is- awkward) but maybe with glitter on the tip instead. Like a twist on a French mani, but so it fades down towards the base of your nail? Like this: http://www.theminerswife.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/subtle-sparkle-nails.jpg ???

    Color-wise I’d also day Orgasm is the best…. however you should really take the color of your dress into consideration.

    I love the sparkle with the Orgasm. My 7th grade brain just can’t handle that name though. Haha

    I think they’re all very pretty, I like the “Give Peach a Chance” faux-french-tip with the gold the best!

    Orgasm all the way, and not just because it makes me giggle :)

    I’d definitely pick orgasm, and I think it looks best on its own. The french manicure is fun, but you might look back later and wish you’d done something less trendy.

    I can never choose just one – I like the peach “french” tip , and the orgasm with a bit of glitter! Both are nice :)

    @soontobeMrsBoo:
    I agree! The Nars Orgasm would look awesome with a glitter tip (faux French Manicure. But I’m a sucker for gold glitter nail polish any day.

    Lovin’ the choices…

    Usually I am a GOLD Girl all the way… but these certainly make for some great alternatives.

    # 1- Fave would have to be the “Give Peach a Chance” with the French Gold Tip

    # 2- “Orgasm” with a touch of sparkle at the tip… like SOONTOBEMRSBOO suggested with her posted link.

    Actually it is pretty tough to choose between the two without seeing them in person… I find a lot of times colours don’t translate the best over the computer… much better IRL.

    Hope this helps (some),

    I fully support Orgasm, on wedding days and every days.

    Orgasm looks the prettiest to me, while the other two are more trendy (I just bought glitter gold polish today!). Are you planning to use the same color on your toes?

    I like the Give Peach a Chance french manicure twist but color wise I like Orgasm so much more.

    I say gold glitter on the base. Glitter is always the answer if you ask me :D

    Orgasm. All the way. Looks MUUUUUCH nicer on your nail with your skin tone.
    I dont mind the little bit of glitter at the base either. :)

    I like the Orgasm, but with the gold tip. That would be super pretty!

    The gold and gold glitter looks great, “orgasm” was my fave colour on you actually…try gold tipping that one, or glitterizing it :)

    Orgasm with or without the glitter gets my vote, though the Peach with Gold tips (but only with the gold tips) is a close second.

    The Peach with the French gold tip is amazing! May steal… I love the idea of a twist on a boring French mani.

    I like the orgasm color the best by itself, no glitter.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t find that awkward to say? Isn’t this something we all want, anyway?

    Ohhh I love the one on the left, but I’m a sucker for french manis. :D Orgasm comes in second place, but probably just because of the name. ;)

    I think my favorite is the Give Peach a Chance, glitter or no glitter (both are great!), or the gold with glitter. I love glitter!!

    I wish I could do something cool for my nails my wedding day but everyone (I mean EVERYONE) thinks it’s the dumbest idea ever. I know I could be Bridezilla, but on something little like nails I feel like I can compromise.

    okay so heres my notes! I like the orgasm colour but plain, not with the gold glitter. I really do like the french manicure idea with the gold strip but the base colour is too yellowy, I think you would need a paler colour for it to really sing!

    I like the Orgasm best, despite the awkwardness of the name. I can see it now… “Your nails are such a pretty color. What nail polish is that?”
    “Oh. It’s… um… uh… ‘Orgasm.’ By NARS.”
