Colorama: Steel Wheeling

Love, love, love me some Colorama's!!!  I had been on the hunt for this particular color for about a year and one day it magically appeared in my mailbox!!  Never under estimate the power of nail polish love on the MUA nail care board! 

This is 2 coats of Steel Wheeling over 1 coat of Icing Metalhead.  Steel Wheeling on it's own is rather sheer and would probably take 4 coats to be opaque.  Seeing as these bottles are so small, I didn't want to use it all up on a 4 coat mani!  This is a warm grey shimmer with tiny holo glitter sprinkled throughout it.  There are about 4-5 other Colorama's with this same finish...I'll have to dig them up and show them to you when I get the chance.

This is going to be my new nail length, if not shorter, for now.  I recently started to train for roller derby and I don't want to take the chance of breaking nails.  I refuse to stop polishing, but I am okay with having sexy nubs!!


  1. Oeh amazing color! I love the tiny glitters in it :O

  2. wow, really love this colour! have some similar coloramas with the fine halo particles but forget their names. I have a blue orange and brown/gold/taupe.

  3. Pretty! Training for a roller derby sounds like fun!

  4. I LOVE this! I remember searching high and low for it when these were still available!

  5. Yes!!! Steel Wheeling is one of my top 5 Colorama's I think!!

    ABOP: Derby is awesome!! I am loving it...I am still a super noob but am loving it none the less!!
