Summer Nails

Hey Dolls!

Summer is in full swing and I was desperately in need of a Summer mani!  My go-to polishes for this season are neons!  They just scream Summer to me...and everyone else I'm sure!

I chose China Glaze Shocking Pink and added a few silver studs (Born Pretty Store) in a triangle formation, which is my fave way to wear them.


What is your fave polish to wear in the Summer?

Have a great day loves!

OPI Washington DC Collection for Fall/Winter 2016

PRESS SAMPLES

Hey Dolls!

I have the new OPI Washington DC Collection to share with you today!  OPI teamed with actress Kerry Washington for this fifteen-piece polish Fall/Winter 2016 collection. While I'm not ready to Fall to start yet, I am drooling over these classy shades and can't wait to start wearing them.

First up is Stay Of the Lawn!!  It is described as a 'deep, lush green'.  This formula is perfection, super pigmented and easy to work with.  A one coater!




Suzi - The First Lady of Nails is a chic, olive green.  The formula is a little watery on this one, but still easy to work with.  Two coats was all I needed.



Never a Dulles Moment is a bright, curry yellow.  The formula was more watery than I expected, so I had a little pooling at my cuticles.  Just be careful and do three thin coats.




Pale to the Chief is a pale-tan, nude with the slightest white shimmer running throughout.  It has a great formula, two easy-peasy coats.



Yank My Doodle is a gorgeous copper cream.  You'll need three coats to get this one fully opaque, as it has a watery formula.





Freedom of Peach is a beautiful creamy peach.  The formula is excellent on this one, two smooth coats.



Squeaker of the House is a delicious chocolate brown and it's my fave of the collection!  Formula is perfection, two easy coats.




Shh...It's Top Secret! is a deep brown that looks almost black.  I love this classy shade!  It is so pigmented that if you are careful, you can get away with just one coat.



Madam President is a bright pink-leaning red cream.  It's very pigmented, you'll just need two coats.




OPI by Popular Vote is described as a 'cool apple red'.  Formula is fantastic, I used two coats to get the full richness of this color.



We the Female is a deep garnet red cream.  Again, the formula is great, two easy coats.



CIA - Color is Awesome is a stunning, dusty teal. You'll want to make sure you double up on your basecoat with this one and watch your cuticles, as it will stain.  Formula is great, two smooth coats.



The next three polishes are limited edition shades.

Kerry Blossom is a rich plum with a crelly formula.  I used two coats for this, but should have done a third as it is a little sparse in some areas.





"Liv" in the Gray is an edgy, deep gray cream.  Perfect formula, you'll only need one coat!



Inside the ISABELLEtway is the loveliest caramel cream.  Formula is excellent, two easy coats.



So does the OPI Washington DC collection have you longing for sweaters, boots and pumpkin spice lattes?  I need a bit more of Summer yet, but I always get excited for the changing seasons.

The OPI Washington DC collection will be available soon and retails for $12.50 CND ($10.00 USD) in salons and select retail stores.

Have a great day loves!

Joe Fresh Moss

Hey Dolls!

I have a quick metallic mani to show you today.  My love for Joe Fresh polishes is still going strong!  I picked up this beauty for .94 cents.  You can't go wrong with that!  I used to hate metallic finishes, the streaks just used to kill me, but I something changed when I bought Joe Fresh Rose Gold and now I love them!

Joe Fresh Moss is a pale green metallic polish.  It was pretty much a one coater, but I did two for my swatch.  I also wore this for 7 days and had minimal chips or wear!



Have a great day my lovelies!

Nude Sparkle OPI Manicure

Hiya Dolls!

I have a nude skittle mani with a bit of sparkle to share with you today.  The weather here in BC Canada hasn't been the most 'Summery' lately, so I haven't been reaching for my usual neons at this time of year.  Instead, I have been reaching for nudes, I think the recent Sally Hansen Play It Neutral and OPI Infinite Shine The Nuances of Neutral Collections have  inspired that.


On my pointer and middle finger I am wearing OPI Infinite Shine No Strings Attached.  My ring finger is OPI Ce-less-tial is More and my pinkie finger is OPI Infinite Shine Hurry Up & Wait.


Have a great day loves, and hope your Summer is a little more 'Summery' than mine!

Love
