105. Funky Fingers Reject (Not online, got it at Five Below.) (Also, the name is not Reject, I just rejected it and tossed it and don’t know the name.)
106. Milani Silver Dazzle
107. LA Splash Midnight (Another one I can’t find online, I don’t remember where I purchased this one.)
108. OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede

This is a shame, because you can see how pretty it is on the nail back there, and even in the bottle.

But the formula is a hot mess, so much so that thinner isn’t going to cut it.

Thoughts: Pretty but a pain.
Verdict: Already went in the trash.

Milani Silver Dazzle, LA Splash Midnight, OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede.

First up, a coat (just the one) of Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede, then alternating topcoat for shine. The index and ring fingers have Poshe topcoat.

Then added LA Splash Midnight over the middle finger, and Milani Silver Dazzle over the ring finger.

Then thought that Midnight might be a dupe for OPI’s Metallic 4 Life from the Nicki Minaj collection. I will have to do a direct side-by-side but they appear to be quite similar.

Thoughts: I think that Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede is my favorite gray polish, but I prefer it with the topcoat. The glitters I tried here are also great. I will re-test Midnight and Metallic 4 Life in a future post.
Verdict: Everyone gets to stay!

Vegas Wedding Shoes, Part 2.

by Jamie Sanford on June 14, 2011

This is part 2 in a series of posts where I search the Neiman Marcus website for potential shoes to wear for my Vegas wedding (actually a vow renewal), coming up later this year.  Click here to see part 1.

Christian Louboutin Maralena Flame Sandal, $2445. These are so the perfect shoes to wear in Las Vegas, they are showgirls in themselves.  However, they are crazy expensive.  Yes, I have a $300 gift card to Neiman Marcus, but I’m pretty certain that I don’t need to spend more than an additional $300 beyond my gift card.  However, this is fantasy shopping, so I will continue.

Christian Louboutin Suede Glitter Platform Sandal, $895. These glitterbomb shoes look a bit weird without a foot in them.  I think they would appear less clunky when they are actually being worn.  The issue with these is that I’m pretty sure I would tower over my husband who is not that much taller than me.  I love them though, the glitter + pink suede is fabulous.

Miu Miu Suede Peep-Toe Mary Jane Pump, $670. These are also tall but the fact that they are more normal-ish makes me think that I would not be TOO tall in them.  Plus, they are so cute and the heel is bigger which means there is less of a chance that I will fall.  I also think that these would go really well with the sort of 60s-ish style idea that I have in my head.  I would definitely be able to wear these after the fact.  They are not as crazy as some of the other shoes, but they are really gorgeous.

Christian Louboutin Glittered Thick Heel Platform Pump, $795. These might be the winner, even though they are totally going beyond the $300 I might have been willing to spend.  I would have to pay $495 + gift card to obtain these purple beauties.  They are tall, but again, the heel isn’t super skinny so that will help.  In addition, they are sparkly and gorgeous but not in a crazy way that will make me unlikely to wear them again.

Opinions are welcome in the comments!
