The first is Kotori. Kotori was released with the Downtown collection for Fall '07. This is a lovely shimmery blue in a blackened base. This application in this photo is of 3 coats to get the colour that is displayed in the bottle, however I still found this to be a little sheer. This polish would be best over a dark blue shade rather than on its own.

today I thought I would share some pics of OPI 2007 Yokohamas. I didnt think that I would like these but I was surprised by how great they looked. I found Sweet love at Ferris wheel to be a little too sheer for me though. Bay bridge was is awesome its packed full of holo glitter, i think i am in love heheheh. Both of these are well worth getting!

Labels: OPI Red
Feeling like a funky red? Well why don't your try Red-y to hit the streets.
This is a bright true red packed full of glitter. I tried to take a pic to show the glitter throughout but it was hard. The glitter is very noticeable and I found this colour to be lovely and glossy. In regards to wear and tear I found this to wear quite well, went 3 days with no chips and only had to top up with a little bit of topcoat.
With regards to taking it off, anyone who wears polish with glitter in it knows it’s a little difficult to get the polish off. However in saying this it was pretty easy to get this baby off. A truly fantastic colour, I know that there are so many reds out there with Christmas coming up... but worth giving this one a go!

Today I thought I would review OPI Princess rule VS OPI Cherry Blossom.
As you can see the is a distinct difference between them.
This colour is a light pink fine micro glitter polish. .It gives your nails this subtle sparkle and sheen that is just gorgeous. This doesn’t seem to have the depth or coverage as Cherry blossom as the glitter seems to be finer and the polish its suspended in much lighter. In the photo you can see my tips and that’s after 4 coats. I would not suggest this polish to be used on its own, it would look much nicer as part of a French polish. I tend to recommend this colour to add a little spice to a normal French.
This colour comes from the Yokohama 2007 collection. This is a medium pink packed with micro silver and pink glitter throughout. This has the same finish as the much loved Hollywood blonde. Though I like this colour I could not see myself wearing it very often, its not all that exciting.
Here is a close up of the two, as you can see there is a big difference between both

So today I present for you some swatches of scandal woohoo.
I love the name of this one, it’s the perfect shade if you are in a bad mood, put it on and it will cheer you up!
The application is quite nice, it takes 3 coats to get the colour in the bottle, however you can still see the nail bed underneath. It colour is very glossy and has a lovely shimmer throughout it.
Oh I love this one. This is a medium purple packed with a thick glitter throughout. This kind of reminds me of OPI Ulta Violet but BETTER. The application is great and it takes 2 coats to get the desired effect. One thing I like about this colour is not only is it packed full of glitter but its long lasting as well. The colour doesn’t seem to dull after a few days as I tend to find other glitter polishes do. This one is a winner!

Roxy has to be one my favourite colours from Zoya. This colour is a lovely medium purple with a tonne of sparkles. Even though it has a tonne of sparkles its not outrageous, however i think i would still wear it even if it was.
Yasmeen by Zoya oh jeepers this one is HOT. I would assume that this colour would be one of their best sellers. Its a lovely deep plum purple with a light shimmer. It has light green and gold shimmer through it when you view it in the sun. Its a great all year round colour!
Mikka by Zoya. A nice dark purple with a lilac shimmer throughout. This is a lovely colour but nothing to write home about
Harmonie by Zoya, wow i love this one. It takes 2 coats to get the full colour in the bottle and the application is a dream! This colour is very glossy and such a dreamy purple... oh i love this one!
Juno By Zoya. When I saw this colour I just HAD to have it. In the bottle this colour looks AMAZING! Its a lovely purple that looks like a durocrome in the bottle. The colour flashes green and blue in the bottle its just soooo hot. On the nail I also love it, however the durocrome doesn't seem so predominant on the nails, but well worth wearing!!!!
Carisma by Zoya. This is a neon purple pink. I would say it has more purple in it than pink. This one was quite hard to capture as it looks more pink in the photo but i find it looks a lot more purple on the hands. This would have to be one of Zoyas best sellers, it really is an awesome colour. The application is fantastic and dries matte (typical of neon's). When you put a top coat over this one it really is super glossy. This polish has very good wear as well, I can go at least 4 days with no sign of wear. This colour is the PERFECT colour for summer!
Enjoy and i will see u tomorrow!

I present the NEW OPI Train case.
I am not sure if this will be available to the USA
This Train case holds a lot more than its older shape case and is easier to carry around with its sturdy shoulder strap! I am in love with its hot pink lining and easy compact storage.
Oh this one is a winner!
This set contains 3 polishes and 1 top coat. This is only available in Ulta stores so I am thankful my little sister sent the 3 polishes over from the USA. I am always bummed about all the good items that Australia never gets. Anyway enough whining here are a few swatches of the colours
The SET includes the following items:
3.75mL Mini OPI Nail Lacquer in Berry Brilliant
3.75mL Mini OPI Nail Lacquer in Season's Sparklings!
3.75mL Mini OPI Nail Lacquer in Pretty Plum-tuous
3.75mL Mini OPI RapiDry Top Coat
Small Purple Metallic Shimmer Wristlet
Here are close up bottle pics of all 3 colours
Here is a close up of Berry Brilliant
Here is a close up of Pretty Plum-tuous
Here is a close up of Season's Sparklings!
Overall I love this little collection. I am a huge fan of cremes and i found that both cremes in this pack went on well and were great colours. Its also nice to see that OPI has brought in a glitter instead of playing it safe. The glitter is great on its own or over both the cremes
If you can get yourself a pack its well worth it, all the colours ROCK!
