Opera Nails

Here's what I wore on my nails during my recent trip to Chicago where we went to see the opera Parsifal.

The cream nude base is JinSoon Nostalgia (review here), and the flaky (flakie?) on top is Sally Hansen Triple Shine in Pearly Whites.  The Sally Hansen Triple Shine is a new formula, but it is permanent to the line line, I believe.

I wanted to wear Nostalgia since it is elegant and neutral (so it matches everything I wore), but I thought it could use a little extra something.  I didn't want sparkle or glitter, so the iridescent flakies in the Sally Hansen polish seemed just right.  I used two coats of Sally Hansen Pearly Whites to get the number of flakies I wanted on each nail.

The flakes in the polish lie quite flat to the nail, but a top coat to seal them still seems like a good idea.

Have a gorgeous day!


  1. Love that combo! Very pretty!


    1. I think the flaky top coat would also be pretty with a dark polish!

  2. Ooh, that shimmer is lovely! Perfect nails for a night at the opera :)


    1. Thanks! I was impressed by how much shimmer and iridescence the flaky bits have.
