Election Day Pride on the Nails

The following blogs will be participating in our Beauty Challenge:

Yesss!! I am so excited to see so many fellow beauty bloggers joining in and participating in our 2nd Beauty Challenge. It is not too late to register (lol at register…like it’s a conference or something). Post a link to the post staying that you want to participate and Yummy411 and I will add you to the list!

Once again, the rules are simple:

1. Create a political-esqe FOTD (face of the day) that represents voting rights, a party of your choice, democracy or just the political times…

2. Post this look on your blog on Friday, October 3!!

3. Tell us the inspiration behind your look and the products you used. Don’t forget to display the links of the participating bloggers in your post.

Are you excited yet? I know I aaaam! I still haven’t even thought about what I am going to do. Non-bloggers/blog hoppers, you people are in for quite a treat. And I like assume that most of us are but if you or someone you love isn’t please….

A friend and I were talking about a “patriotic nail look” that she wanted to create to rock to the polls on Election Day. I just love how this election has igniting a spark in the younger generation. While I stay glued to the happenings of BOTH campaigns (*looks around*) I can’t help but merge politics with beauty. Why not? We got to thinking about our favorite reds, white and blues. Check out my favorites that made the cut!


RED: Essie Turning Heads Red
WHITE: OPI Fit For a Queen’s Island
BLUE: Misa A Sin Worth Committing

Essie Turning Heads Red


Aside from Essie being my #1 polish of choice in terms of performance, I just loooove this fire engine red. Can you believe that this was only one coat? I remember not being able to wear red polish as a little girl (okayyy, I know I wasn’t the only one) but this polish just screams “Sexy Lady”!!

OPI Fit For a Queen’s Island

When most of us think of white polishes we usually think of the white tips on French manicures. I’ve actually rocked that kind of white on my nails before and it’s just a tad bit harsh. Fit For a Queen’s Island provides a beautiful opalescent finish with pink undertones. The downside? It is extremely streaking but after 3 coats you are able to achieve a gorgeous and elegant look.

Misa A Sin Worth Committing


I can’t say enough about this beautiful navy blue. With just a tinge of shimmer it provides an intense blue look with just one stroke. The finish is amazing and actually “looks blue”. I get so annoyed when dark polishes in colors other than black still end up looking black. I own at least 7 blues and this is my absolute favorite! In fact, I am really impressed with the brand Misa altogether. I will definitely be order 1 or 2….or 12 more polishes from them. Thanks to my site!

What are your favorite political polishes? Got a favorite red? A craaazy white? Or an out of this world blue? Tell me!! Where are all of my nail polish obsessed people at?

  • Blog Sisters

    Great idea! Very impressive marketing concept! I came across your blog by studying DeliCious Design Studio Portfolio and I love your graphic template especially the banner. With regards to makeup, I’m about to turn 40 and still know little about makeup other than the basics. Your blog is encouraging. For special occasions, I just go to a professional. I posted my first entry on makeup (oil control)on my fashion blog. Would love to know your thoughts. Wishing you continued success. I will be flying to Arizona on Oct 3rd as part I of my 40th birthday celebration. Looking forward to reading and viewing your Political Makeup results!!! CHRISTINE (aka KRYSHA)I’m taking my laptop with me!
