Sephora by OPI’s Metro Chic. Wednesday I’m starting Christmas-y polishes beginning with China Glaze’s Midnight Kiss layered with Party Hearty. πŸ™‚

OPI Miami Beet!
I’m so excited to be wearing it, I bought it a while ago but I was too busy to paint my nails then.
I’d been searching for the perfect berry-beet colour and I saw this in the bottle and thought it’d be too light but I bought it anyways and I’m so glad I did!
It’s perfect πŸ™‚
Lol this was a mini rave but I only got a bit over three hours of sleep last night so I’m a little out of it. Ooops, hehe.

Miami Beet is great, definitely in my rotation. For once, an OPI name is half-descriptive: the Beet part. πŸ™‚

An Affair in Red Square by OPI… aka the perfect shimmery Christmas red! I clipped my nails short and put on a coat of OPI Ridge Filler, two coats of the polish, and then the Seche Vite top coat, and it looks fab. πŸ™‚

Ah! So jealous!! I can’t find this aaanywhere, and I’ve been to 3 Walgreens and 2 Wal-Marts!! Going to 2 more Wally Worlds today and 3 more Walgreens.. Fingers crossed! πŸ˜€

A patchwork manicure with Chanel Paradoxal and two other drugstore nail polishes (can’t remember their names, but it’s a steely metallic gunmetal grey and a dark, shimmery purple).

I’m just doing my nails right now:
Revlon Sheer Nude mixed with Reflects gold
French tip of Milani’s French Toast
Milani’s Gold Glitter Nail Art Brush half way up the nail
Soon to be: added 3D Gold Glitter at the tips plus rhinestones

NARS Midnight Express with Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe on my ring fingers as accent nails πŸ™‚ The formula on both of these is insane they’ve lasted almost a week with just tip wear!! (not by choice, just haven’t had the time to do a new mani)

I am wearing Sally Hansen Laquer Shine in flair with Sinful Color’s I Love you on top. So its a red toned purple with pink glitter.

I received some new nail polish in the post and just had to try it out, so I currently have a different colour on each finger on my left hand – all OPI

Rising Star, Take The Stage, The Show Must Go On, Let Me Entertain You.

I’m not planning on going out like this, though lol.

I am painting Rimmel’s Steel Grey on my nails right now. Christine could you recommend a drugstore brand dupe for Illamasqua’s n/p in Rampage for me pretty please?

I’m wearing clear nail polish, I do this when I don’t have time to paint my nails in a actual color and this is how I keep my nails long and strong I keep them covered

Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength nail polish in Shining Moment. It’s a shimmery golden taupe color which is perfect for fall.

sephora by opi’s “mr right now”. haha love the name! and its a beautiful wine red. great for fall πŸ™‚

Fingers alternating between CG – Mistletoe Kisses with CG – Emerald Sparkle sponge gradient to the tips and CG – Mrs. Claus with CG – Ruby Pumps sponge gradient to the tips. (Christmas party this Saturday!) For the rest of the holidays I’ll be wearing CG – Party Hearty layered over Orly – Winter Wonderland! ^_^

WOW! I’d love to see this:) Sounds amazing!
I am wearing CG Midnight Kiss with Party Hearty layered over it and it’s awesome!

Nothing on fingers, China Glaze OMG on toes.

Speaking of nailpolish. I got my Alex yesterday. So excited! A bit disappointed that I only have enough polish to fill one drawer though lol.

About to put on OPI Just A Little Rosti at This, maybe with Northern Lights topcoat. Did the whole hands and feet soak/cuticle cleanup/lotion etc. routine last night, ready to polish today.

OPI Sparkle-Licious!! It’s sooo gorgeous and fun, and matches my shoes for New Years!! I put pics of each on my blog, haha!!
Sooo jealous of Riva– it’s the perfect pale blue! Any suggestions for dupes? πŸ™‚

212-sephora by Sephora by Opi on the left index finger. But that’s it. I only wanted a quick look on what it actually looked like πŸ™‚

avon cafe au lait
it’s not a good one – this polish stays on my nails only 2-3 days [others usually 5-6 days] but this is a perfect beige for my skintone
and inglot diamond top coat – i like it very much πŸ™‚

MAC For Fun

I didn’t like it as I was applying it, but after it dried (with Out The Door as a topcoat) it dried very nicely. We’re on day 3, still super shiny and no chips. I think I have been converted.

Sally hansen green with envy and bubble gum pink, mac reflects gold over that and white konad fishnet design over that.

China Glaze Afterglow. I am loving this color! It’s a lovely neutral pink with a flash of blue/purple when the light catches it right. I want to use it in a french manicure with a soft buffed pearl tip. I think it would be lovely.

Essie Mint Candy Apple yesterday but I now have on OPI the show must go on
— Loving my metallics right now

Nothing! I was wearing a crappy Coach GWP hot pink polish with OPI Sparkle-icious on top, but it chipped off in chunks, even with a base…

I’m curious to know how UD polishes hold up. I just bought that set as a stocking stuffer for one of my girls. Does it last?

I don’t have the Summer of Love kit yet (been waiting an entire month for it to come in the mail D:) but I have to say the polishes in the Apocalyptic kit don’t have the best wear time. Application is great and they have really nice brushes but I get chips after the first day or so. I’ve heard the summer of love is a little better but still not the best.

Essie Ballet Slippers. It’s perfect. I needed something soft and neutral after wearing China Glaze Atlantis (Glitter) for a few days.

Hot Coco from Essie Winter but I’m tired of it time for something new just don’t know what yet… Any suggestions??? I collect essie opi and opi for sephora.

Revlon – Gold for It! It’s wearing very nicely btw.
Buuuut I just dropped and shattered my MAC – Style Clan yesterday!!! It was horrible, ruined a Chanel bag and everything. (I’m crying just typing this but shame on me for being a klutz and having nailpolish in my bag to begin with!)

Butter London All Hail the Queen on my fingers, OPI DS Vintage on my toes. I feel pretty! (Love the Chanel Riva. I thought it was just another light blue until I used it over the weekend. Definitely Chanel worthy.)

Revlon Creme Brulee on my nails πŸ™‚ I needed something fast that I didn’t have to worry about being super obvious once it chipped!

For the last 3 years during the fall/winter seasons my toes have always been wearing OPI St. Petersburgundy. And theres never a day when they’re naked. As for fingers, I’m currently wearing OPI Panda-monium Pink

Tips are Illamasqua DWS with a coat of Revlon Bella on top. Fastest manicure I’ve done in ages, DWS only needed a SINGLE coat!

sephora by opi’s under my trench coat, & sephora by opi’s only gold for me top coat on my ring fingers over the under my trench coat.

Chanel’s Vendetta. Vendetta is a very dark purple with a little bit of shimmer. It stays for a minimum of about a week with out chipping (without using a top coat), but about 3 weeks maximum.
