*Heart* Nina Ultra Pro Salsa!

Okay Kids, you won't be seeing this too often...check it- I am wearing a straight-up Creme!

It's ironic that at 49 I can still pull off wearing mini skirts (with tights, of course) and not look silly, but cannot and almost will not wear a creme without a glitter, shimmer or some other sparkle-y topcoat. Like mini skirts, Creme polishes scream youth to me. With a few rare exceptions (one being OPI Sapphire In The Snow), Cremes look out of place on my nails, not to mention that I royally suck at applying them.
It bears mention that I don't see glitters and other sparklies as youthful. To me, they say "fun, party, happy"...things that an old timer like me needs in abundance.
In a nutshell...While I'll never be a youthful Creme again, I am still an amazingly active, crazy, party animal.

Hah! All that rambling because I found another Creme I can wear... Salsa, the green 2 coater from Nina Ultra Pro, and I just *love* it!!!
First coat went on semi streaky but was manageable. Second coat went on smooth as silk and adhered to the first coat as if it were a magnet. 1 coat Seche.
I don't think it gets any better than this for me....Perfect!

It's a stunning green and it looks great on you! I passed it up only because I just couldn't add another green creme to my stash. (Weird since I do my Duck manis and I need green for it!)

That's funny that creme speaks young to you. Glitter does that for me. I won't stop wearing glitter because its awesome but that's my perspective. ;)

Anyway, I think you're amazing and I hope to be half as cool as you.

Ummmm YES!  This is the hottest green creme in the UNIVERSE!  I must have it!  Superyummy.  Thanx for the amazing photo.

This is really pretty...I'm gonna get it on my next run to Sally's. Green cremes are so sexy to me. I have 0 idea why that is.

And LOL @ you referring to yourself as an old timer. You're only 49!

I adore this shade of green.  I have a hard time applying cremes also.  I say to wear what you feel good in.  I'm never going to wear clothes that I would like to wear because of age.  But I'm sure going to wear all the polishes and makeup I like.  This Salsa look so gorgeous on you.  I have to buy this.

I don't think this brand gets enough attention! I have Salsa & Leaf Me alone and they are both great green cremes.

Lovin' the green,Lisa!

Course you can wear cremes! You can wear anything. This is a great colour. Creme doesn't spell youth to me - quite the contrary.

It's funny you think that way of shimmers/glitters and cremes, because a lot people including me, find it the opposite!

I UTTERLY LOVE this polish. It's so cool! I'm glad you can wear it because it looks fantastic on you! Nina Ultra Pro surprises me with their colors sometimes, I've found some really cool stuff from them.

I hope I can find this brand one day.  It might be a USA only polish but I'll keep my eyes open!  It looks fabulous on you!

Megan Harmeyer said...

HA HA!  Every time I see this name, I definitely do NOT think of salsa.  Maybe it's meant to represent jalapenos?  Either way, that looks good on you.
