Golden Oldie Thursday - Stripes!

For this mani, I pulled out a few more ancient polishes that I have plus one that I have had for nearly a year and never used. I have three of these polishes since middle/high school. We're talking 15+ years old. I keep them because they haven't dried out and I actually really love the blue glitter in them. The light blue is from a company called Natural Glow and the color is Cornflower Pearl. The blue glitter is from Victoria's Secret. It came in a set I received for Christmas with two other awesome glitters, but unfortunately the other two have not made it this long. The name of the color is Sleigh Bells. The medium blue shimmer is from Cover Girl and is called Starry Blue. The fourth color I used is from The New Black. It is a navy cream from the Runway Collection.

I painted Cornflower Pearl on my nails first, and then carefully used a striping brush to do horizontal stripes with Sleigh Bells, Starry Blue, and the navy from The New Black.

Here is Cornflower Pearl by itself. This is three coats; it is a very thin polish. I think I need to use it again in the spring!

I hope you like my mani today! Be sure to check out what everyone else has done!


  1. love love love the colour combination, the stripers look great.xx

  2. Your stripes are perfect! Love the different blues, I have some polishes which I bought during high school too... They're around the 15 years old too!!

    1. I thought my stripes were shaky so I'm glad to hear that! I guess I am my own worst critic! Thanks for making me feel better about my age too - we're in the same boat! :)
