NOTD - Work Appropriate... Yet Mesmerizing!


Today I had a meeting at work with an outside member of our team so I decided to change my green/purple duochrome to something more neutral. I decided on Sinful Colors - Wicket Mind (I still firmly believe this is a typo, but whatever) as it is a subtle, rosy mauve. I have shown it to you before here, but I decided it needed another look.

It turns out I like this even more than I thought I would! I felt strange buying it even though I was oddly drawn to it. It is unlike me to pick a regular 'ol pink color. This just isn't some bland plain Jane color I guess. It is rich and pretty, and although the texture is of a thick opaque creme, it has some shimmer too. I can't stop looking at it! I really like this on my nails.

What about you? Do you like neutral colors? Or do you do all bold all the time?


  1. What a nice color! I love colors that are wearable but at the same time not boring.

  2. i wear colors that are not boring. life is too short for nail polish that is devoid of color ( i.e clear polish).i mean whats the point, you might as well buff your nails

  3. This is a pretty shade on you. You can't always wear your hearts desire. I prefer bold nails.

  4. I don't think it's a typo, but I do think it's a lovely color. I like to keep 'em guessing, and wear all colors...but I will often do something to the softer ones to add a little dramatic flair. Not always, somedays, I'm feeling neutral. :)

  5. gildedangel - Isn't it nice?! It's great to find colors like that

    augusta - Hell yeah!

    Lucy - Thank you girl!

    ~Elizabeth - Thank you! You gotta keep 'em on their toes! Me too... sometimes I like a tamer color

  6. Generally neutral for work, but I find ways of making that a bit more interesting, like doing sparkly tips or just varying the colours. When I'm not teaching I tend to go for various shades of red. I *may* branch out into bolds at weekends! Blogging and wanting more variety with what I post has made me a bit more adventurous and likely to wear the more obscure colours in my collection...
