I am not sure who they made this polish for, surely it doesn't suit anyone! In the bottle it looks semi OK, but on the nails it looks disgusting and I mean disgusting. The only nice thing I can think about this one is the fact that it comes out so glossy.. but that's about it!
This is a medium orange looking based puke brown. This is 2 coats. This one is a hard to find, and thank goodness i will not be searching this one out
Today I have yet another colour from the China Glaze Summer days collection. I just cant keep my hands off these colours since they arrived. They are all so juicy, bright and super fun looking colours.
Today I am sporting Raspberry Festival, I am a HUGE fan of reds so this one is really doing it for me. Its a super shimmery cherry red. When I look at the bottle in the sunlight I can see little flecks of silver and sold sparkles throughout it, however on the nails the gold sparkle throughout is more predominant.
Again in the pics do not look at the cuticle, blah blah blah, note that in the pic I have put on only 2 coats and I haven't applied a top coat yet.
I am sure I will be sporting this colour on my nails throughout winter!
for those who know me, know that I have been DYING to try China Glaze watermelon rind, and guess what? It finally arrived today!!! wooohooo! Well When I first took the bottle out of its box I was stunned at its beauty. I have seen posts of this colour, which have been very flattering and I am proud to say it looks amazing in the flesh.
In the bottle its a stunning glittery teal based blue with what looks like blue and bits of green glitter flecks throughout it. I found this polish a little watery which means it took 3 coats to ensure that I could not see my tips under the polish. On the nails it just shimmers like diamonds mini diamonds. I know this wont be everyone's colour, but this is one that isn't garish and doesn't looks over the top. Its out there without being TOO out there if u know what I mean.
I will defiantly be getting a back up of this one it looks AMAZING. OMG all my nail polish dreams have come true with this colour.
Why cant OPI release a colour this exciting? Sorry to complain I will get on with it, here are some pics. Please be kind ... I have been cleaning my wax pots again today... why don't I wear gloves you ask? Well they melt from the cleaner! Imagine what they are doing to my hands..... I don't want to think about it lol.
Well today I felt a little blue, so thought I would try my Rodeo Fanatic. I am loving this teal based blue. It has a lovely teal shimmer throughout it without making it look over the top. I think the China Glaze rodeo collection has to be my favourite collection released for 08.
I am sorry for the cracked cuticles, I have been cleaning wax pots today so my hands are in dire need of a mani.
For those who are interested, I have chosen my bridal shoes, check them out..... what colour for a pedi????
Oh my gosh I am in love with this colour. This is is a lovely silver polish with tiny silver flakes throughout which makes it look gritty but doesn't actually feel gritty. Its such a glamour colour and just twinkles like crazy in the sun
So if you are looking for that WOW polish, this would definitely be up your alley.
Feeling a little grey today so thought I would show you a grey I am a big fan of. OPI Earthquake, from the California collection which is Asia exclusive. This one is a lovely medium grey which reminds me of OPI take it for granite. This pic was taken prior to topcoat, look how lovely and glossy it is.
Sorry to bombard you with a double post today but I really wanted to show you a swatch of my wedding gown. In my previous post I asked for assistance in a nail colour for my wedding day. I have a olive tone and my wedding gown is a dark ivory.... so suggestions please?
I picked up OPI Miami beet today and realised it looked very similar to another colour I have... OPI My throne for a cranberry scone. My throne for a cranberry scone is from the British collection and I believe has been discontinued... which is a shame.
In the bottle they look slightlydifferent to eachother but on the nail I found them hard to work out which was which as they look exactly the same to me.
Also something interesting, my soon to be hubby saw my new OPI babies from the South Beach collection on the dining room table.... I said to him so what do you think about the new collection... his answer to that was, why do they keep releasing the same colors over and over... isn't that boring? My answer to that is YES!! HOW BORING!
By the way he thought that Bronzed to perfection looked like someone swallowed the polish and threw it back up... awful hahahah
Helllooo today I have for you China Glaze In the lime light. I am totally loving this colour. This is such a vibrant delicious green with a slight microshimmer. Its a neon so its lovely and super bright. I was feeling a bit daring so I slapped this one on my nails today and I am LOVING it!
Splurged today on a pedi and got a lovely comment about my nails today, Nail tech thought they were fake hahaha
Today I thought I would show you a colour I have been wearing for the last 2 days. MisaToxic Seduction. I am absolutely loving this colour. In the bottle it looks like a blackened forest green but when its on your nails it looks a little more teal than green. Its so glossy and has been wearing really well.
Lovely people I need your help choosing a polish to wear for my wedding day, have you got any suggestions. I don't want a french, looking for something subtle. My wedding dress is a off white almost gold in colour... so what polishes could you recommend?
This has to be my all time favourite colour from Essie. Essie Starry Starry nights. Its an amazing blue with silver glitter suspended in it to look like a starry night. This colour not only looks amazing but it wears amazingly well too.
This is defiantly in my top 10 of all time favourite colours, if only I could find a back up bottle!
Today I thought I would show you a colour that looks fab in the bottle but meh not that awesome on the nails. I present to you Zoya Jade. When I saw this one I was so excited, I thought it was going to be a red version of Zoya Roxy, but I was sorely disappointed. In the bottle it looks like a dazzling bottle of red sparkles.. swimming all around making me giddy, but on the nails it looks like a flood of glitter mess. In my pic I have 4 coats on and its still translucent and looks like a watery mess. Oh well... this ones off to my swap list.
today I thought i would post 2 shades from the south beach collection. I have to say I am not overly impressed by the collection, the colours that have been released are a similar shade to colours OPI already has in their range. However as I love the quality of OPI polishes I had to give these ones a try
First is Done Out in Deco. A lovely Easter egg/Candy purple. Which reminds me of I lilac it but darker. This is a lovely creme so its a dream to apply and the wear is pretty good too.
Next I present... Over Exposed in South Beach... ho hum... this ones boring.
Today I thought I would post a pic of a colour I have on today. China Glaze Flying dragon. I am in love with this colour, its such a vibrant fun purple. This colour is a neon so don't be shocked when it dries Matte, it really needs a good glossy topcoat to go over this one. This colour is a dark purple with glitter flecks of blue and lilac throughout. In the sun this polish truly shows its true beauty.... ohh such a yummy colour!
Wanted to give you an update on my nail wraps. I have taken all my wraps off today and have been really happy with the growth and health of my nails. I have filed them twice since applying them and they still look like they have a decent length to them. As for health, the nail wraps did not damage my nails whatsoever, they look as strong as ever!
