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: Be a Dahlia, Won’t You?

I love the jelly and glass-fleck finish of this polish. It’s a hot-hot-hot pink that flashes blue. I can’t rave about this color enough! Application is flawless, but I should have used 3 coats instead of 2. It’s a glass-fleck, after all, and they need a bit of help to be completely opaque. 🙂

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.

China Glaze Frostbite

You can see how different the polish looks with/without flash. In real life, the Flash one is more color-accurate, but the pic without flash is more finish-accurate if that makes sense. Imagine that blue glow, only without the strange looking frosty shimmer. The camera catches the shimmer that makes the blue shift so epically and makes it look like it’s frosty, which it absolutely isn’t. It’s such a complex, amazing blue. Definitely an all-time favorite!
