Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Gunmetal

Last night I told my boyfriend I would paint my nails orange because I wanted something bright for summer. He gave me quite the look, suggesting I was insane and then requested I paint them to match the weather. Specifically he wanted "wet asphalt" because it has been raining buckets around here, no sign of summer in sight.

The first "wet asphalt" polish that I came across was Gunmetal from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. There were probably better polishes to match the description, but this stood out first and I don't like to second guess my polish choices... the one thing in life I don't agonize over... Not to mention that according to a recent study too many choices can lead to stress and anxiety ;)

I did three coats, but could have probably gotten away with a careful two. It was certainly opaque by two coats...

Outside and overcast, but luckily stopped raining long enough to take some photos...

Here it is with the inspirational wet asphalt...

As you can see it is more of a metallic color as the name suggests, but it is boyfriend approved and I am loving the color today! I should have him suggest colors more often :)
