NOTD OPI Yodel Me On My Cell

26 Mar


A quick post of an Instagram picture of the OPI from the 2010 Swiss winter collection. The color is a bit flatter in real life, the filter I’ve used gives it more depth. I love the color, hate the formula! OPI doesn’t do blue shimmers very well, it is watery and hard to work with.

My untrieds list is pretty much the same as last time, with some new additions and some polishes I’d forgotten to add last time. I’ve had problems with peeling and I’ve worn very little polish the last month. It’s getting better and combined with more daylight and spring I’m ready for some more colour on my nails!

NOTD Chanel 479 Kaleidoscope

24 Mar

This polish is in my top 20 favorites! I love it. I’m not sure why i’s named Kaleidoscope as I associate that with colors, and this is a mix of gold and steel (not exactly a color but I’m sure you understand). I got it on sale at a local beaty store, I passed on it at first because of price and am glad that I came across it on sale. I rarely wear anything other than untrieds but I come back to this (and a handful of others) often. My obsession with untrieds do affect the fact that I rarely use my exstensive collection, and my untrieds drawer in my Helmer is growing faster than I can wear them! (I’m sure other bloggers and polish lovers can relate!)

I can’t remember any information about coats and application, this is an old picture I found in my Picasa album and wanted to share with you. But I do recall it was easier to apply than other Chanels I have (Ballerina and Tulip Noir).
