NOTD OPI Ink

18 Oct

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.

NOTD – OPI I Only Drink Champagne

12 Oct

Well I don’t only drink champagne (no alcohol at the moment…) but I love this polish! One of the few in my collection I’ve worn more than once (too many untrieds!) and this weekend it was for a special occasion. My sister celebrated her wedding and as this is her favorite so we both wore this on Saturday.

Polish is from OPI Night Brights from 2007 – same collection as My Private Jet is from. It is a suprisingly opaque golden champagne color with sparkly shimmer. The shimmer is mostly yellow/golden but in some lights you can see some blue and red shades – but it is very sparsly.

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 2 IODC and 1 Nubar Diamont.

NOTD OPI Glacier Bay Blues

26 Jun

OPi Glacier Bay Blues

OPI Glacier Bay Blues

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.
