my mannequin hands

ok, i don't really follow the "trends" all that much, but when the mannequin hands thing started showing up i was like, ok that's a train i can jump on pretty easily. unfortunately i didn't have the perfect nude in my arsenal at the time, so i went and picked out a new polish (twisted my arm, haha) and chose one of the sally hansen complete manicure line. now, i hated the polish process with this guy, because it has the crappy long neck, the yucky long handle, and the flat/skinny squarish round brush. not my fav. but ok, the polish on me looked pretty darn close to "mannequin" as i think i'll ever get. the problem here? i can't remember the freaking name of the polish!! sorrrrry kids! mostly cuz i returned it the next day. i love our rite aid, they have a money back guarantee on cosmetics so if you use it and hate it, back it goes! i'm almost positive it was either cafe au lait or nude now. oh well, here are the pics!
these are taken with that old crappy camera that i returned (i'm the queen of returns!) so excuse the poor quality. also, wtf's up with my cuticles?? boo! haha.

  1. That is a great nude polish! I tried out Dulche de Leche and it was a little dark like we thought, but I think that is still works for the mannequin hands trend!

  4. I don't really like it, it's too muted for me :/ It's the purpose though ^-^

  6. Customer service in the US has always left me very jealous: you can't even dream about returning a used cosmetic item in Europe!
    I'm still not sure how I feel about that whole "mannequin hand" trend but that color is definitely very close to your skin tone. Actually it's a very nice color :) As always I wish we had SH here ^_^

  7. I think this one is called Naked Ambition. I bought this or rather my girlfriend picked up a load of polishes for me from Walgreens. I got the privelage of paying for them all. She's now known as the nail polish lady when she goes to Walgreens. The good thing is the lady behind the counter now runs out to tell her where the new polishes are. Dangerous for me since she buys them and adds more to my stash. I wore this once and I'm not real crazy about the mannequin hand look.
