Happy November!

1 Nov

November is a legit time to start Christmas manicures, right?  Here’s my creation today, Aha Moment under Good Tidings We Bling, both from the Sephora by OPI collection.  I’m in love with Good Tidings We Bling.


Yes, Your Lioness

15 Aug

Sephora by OPI: Yes, Your Lioness with Blasted Black

I wanted to try this look out for Halloween but didn’t want to wait that long, especially since we’re headed into fall at work.  I started with three coats of Yes, Your Lioness, which I regrettably did not take a picture of, before I topped that off with a coat of Blasted Black and a topcoat.  The Blasted worked a little better for me this time, but I still don’t like how it makes long lines of crack on me like on my index finger, instead of a more chopped up look like I got on my thumbnail.

Overall though, and in good light especially, it worked out better than last time and I like it!

Don’t Feed The Hand Models

Three coats of Sephora by OPI Don't Feed The Hand Model

Me and mini bottle, haha.  I love this neutral so, so much!  I think it’s such a great shade and it’s perfect for when I go to work and have to demonstrate or give a sample of a product.  Since it’s such a great neutral, it doesn’t clash with any of the designs on the bottles I show customers.

Steady as She Rose by OPI

Steady as She Rose


Two coats.  Wow, my cell phone took a good picture for once!  This was my first OPI purchase I made about a week before the Pirates movie came out and the reason I fell in love with OPI.  That’s the color in the late afternoon sun, I took the picture by my backdoor, but in normal indoor lighting it looks way more purple-y.

And I just found out today my local Kroger is illegally selling OPI.  That makes me sad 😦  So I reported them to OPI’s Diversion peeps 🙂  Take that Kroger!

OK I’m obsessed

… with OPI nail polishes.  I decided if I started buying expensive nail polishes I might be able to kick the habit of biting my nails and it worked.  Of course now I have to keep them polished all the time, which is fine because I’m loving all the fun colors I’ve gotten to try.  I picked up some new Sephora by OPI over the weekend and here’s how that worked out:

Sephora by OPI "Set the Mood"

And then I added some Blasted Black

Sephora by OPI "Blasted Black"

It didn’t come out as blasted as my silver has, maybe I didn’t wait long enough to apply it, but in person it looks pretty good, kinda punk on top of the pink.

PS: Sorry for the picture quality, all I have is the camera on my phone, though I did FINALLY find my missing camera – though of course it has no charge and the charger is still MIA.  Just my luck!
