I got this in a swap and fell in love immediately. The beauty of the color is not shown entierly in these photoes, it has tons of beautiful purple and blue shimmer in a blue base. The shimmer is borderline glitter, it is big. The light is changing here, so I’m having a harder time getting good pictures – we’re getting closer to winter and that means shorter days and less time for gettting good pictures.

The polish is from the same collection as I Only Drink Champagne, Night Brights.

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 3 Ink and 1 Nubar Diamont.

OPI Glacier Bay Blues

Duochromes rock! This particular one is from OPIs Canadian collection (fall 2004) and is gorgeous. It is a blue/green duo and does live up to its name as water from a glacier is green… In the top photos you see the green, the best picture I could get of the ‘duochromeness’ is the bottom one. I need more practice getting these sort of pictures right.

The polish was ok, a bit runny (as most old OPIs are) and therefore somewhat difficult to work with when you are used to the new more gloopy polishes.

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 1 CND Stickey, 3 GBB and 1 Nubar Diamont.

ChG Adore with OPI Breathe Life

ChG Adore with OPI Breathe Life

So after having worn Chg Adore for some days I decided to try out my new polish from OPI. But rather than doing a whole new mani, I just put one coat on top of the excisting mani and got the rather gorgeous mani pictured above.

OPI Breathe Life is a Limited Edition (LE) polish created exclusively for the Lung Cancer Foundation of America. I have a close family member that had lung cancer 15 years ago and is still alove today (85% of diagnosed patients will die within 5 years of less). I like it when a company cares and it is a bonus that the color is very pretty. Lets help them find a cure!

NOTD China Glaze Caribbean Blue

15 May

A gorgeous sparkly blue from the China Glaze Bahama Blues Collection, all blues! And pure bliss. All i have tried (I have 3 out of 6 in the collection) is really great, in terms of opacity, formula, ease of application.

2 coat of Orly Armor, CND Stickey, 3 coats of polish, 1 coat SV.

Look out for my special 17th of May mani (Norwegian National Day) on Sunday!

Get the party started, some previous NOTDs
