OPI Nein, Nein, Nein, OK Fine

Hello all! Quick post to tell you how much I love gray polish. Quick note about me, I first started getting interested in nail polish when I found out that I could have "pretty ugly" colors on my nails. Like browns and grays and mustard yellows. So gray polish is close to my polish lovin' heart.

This is OPI Nein, Nein, Nein, OK Fine from the Germany collection. I have the mini so I can only say this would have been applied a lot better if it wasn't for that damn mini brush. This is 2 coats with Seche Vite on top.

Love you. (Love you too, reader).

Butter London Muggins

As you all know, recently Ulta had a buy one, get one free on Butter London, here is one of the polishes I snagged during that hot deal.

Butter London Muggins! This polish actually looked blue to me in the bottle, and blue in pictures, but is actually a really light purple. It is similar to Essie Lilacism without the overt purpleness. Do I make sense yet? Essie Stroke Of Brilliance is a thick, blue glitter. I actually got it for free as a Klout perk, that was awesome.

I have 3 coats of Muggins on, mostly because it's a little spotty. Otherwise, the application is lovely, as you would expect of a Butter London polish. My polished chipped soon hereafter, which I was not happy about. So when in doubt, add glitter! I added a coat of Essie Stroke Of Brilliance to cover up the  boo boo and I ended up with a really pretty, sparkly mani. Seche Vite on top, of course.

Smooches and see you next time my lovely polished ladies!

It's Finally October!

Fall is here and I could not be more excited. Football, tea, brisk air, Halloween, soups, and soon - egg nog! Yipee! I have been absent lately, for which I am sad, but I am back and am promising to blog more - even if no one reads ;p.

I have a fun, fall manicure today. I have OPI Deutsche You Want Me Baby topped with Essie Shine Of The Times.

Both of these polishes are gorrrrgeous. Let me first talk about Deutsche You Want Me Baby, which I sadly didn't snap a picture of solo. This is the perfect fall polish that will be on my fingers a lot this season. It's the perfect burnt orange with the right amount of shimmer. The application is flawless, I haven't fallen this hard for a polish in awhile. And then there is Shine Of The Times, which is also drop dead gorgeous. I love this flake because it has a gold/green tone, perfect for fall.

I have 2 coats of Deutsche You Want Me Baby with 1 of Shine Of The Times. I used a new top coat! I listened to you guys and I bought Poshe, definitely not as much shrinkage as Seche Vite, which is excellent. So all in all, this manicure is a success!
Hello Fall!

I don't know how to work my blog ever. I used to be really computer savvy and now I can't figure out how to move my text from one end of the screen to the next. Anyways, I will be back soon my lovely polished ladies!
