NOTD: OPI Pros & Bronze

29 Oct

Orly ‘Rock Solid’ lasted on me for about 4 days before I couldn’t stand it anymore and had to change polish (I have a problem, I know lol). So next up was OPI ‘Pros & Bronze’!

This is such a unique polish, and one I wouldn’t normally wear. It came in the set with ‘Love is a Racket’ (oh, so pretty!) so I got it, and I don’t regret it at all. Awesome pink, gold, and bronze flecks that look super shimmery-shiny. I got so many compliments when I wore it!

Fair warning, though, as seems to be one of those polishes that doesn’t get along with my Seche Vite top coat very well (There’s a bit of pulling at the tips as you can tell).

Polishes Used (In Order):

3 coats OPI Pros & Bronze

1 coat Seche Vite Top Coat

NOTD: The Show Must Go On + Firework

13 Aug

Kleancolor Firework over OPI The Show Must Go On (indirect sunlight)

*drools*

I bought Firework a few weeks ago, but hadn’t been able to find the right polish to layer it over. It’s got an orange tinted base that doesn’t go with a lot of other polishes. Finally I picked TSMGO because it has that gorgeous gold/red duochrome to it, which I thought would complement the orange in FW without using an orange polish. Hooray for glittery goodness!

For some reason this mani reminds me of Ponyo:

NOTD: OPI Grape…Set…Match

9 Aug

I tried to capture the crazy awesome blue flecks in this beauty, but what little I got doesn’t communicate how AMAZING this polish is. I don’t like purple anything usually. Especially not purple nail polish. But I LOVE this one and I’m so glad I got it! The formula is flawless and the color is so amazing in real life.

NOTD: How I Met Your Magenta + I Lily Love You

31 Jul

With Flash

Without Flash

Polishes Used (In Order):

1 coat of Beauty Secrets Base Coat

4 coats of Wet n Wild How I Met Your Magenta

1 coat of OPI I Lily Love You

1 coat Seche Vite Top Coat

 

While they are totally gorgeous, the flakies in I Lily Love You have a nasty habit of lifting at the ends and sticking up on the nail, even through top coat, so be really careful when you apply it so that everything lays flat. The careful application is totally worth it, as you can tell from the picture without flash!

NOTD: Glitter Gradient

27 Jul

RAWR!

Lookit all the glitters!

 

Polishes Used (In Order):

1 coat of Beauty Secrets Base Coat

2 coats of Orly Luxe

1 medium coat of OPI Sparkle-icious (Burlesque collection) brushed over tip of nail, 1 sparing coat over the first tip coat and 1/4-2/3 of the nail. Use lighter strokes the further you get from your nail tip – this will make it fade into the gold nail polish and create the gradient effect.
