Hey everyone! Long time no see for a nail post:) We are still in the midst of packing, leaving Chicago for California in just a few days- can you believe it?? I know I can’t. It doesn’t really seem real.
I wore this manicure for at least 5 days. First off was 2 layers of Zoya’s Faye, then I took a small paint brush and created tiny flowers with Orly’s Luxe. About 2-3 days after wearing that combo, I threw on layer of OPI’s I Lily Love You. I was half afraid to post this picture since it’s complex to recreate but I love it nonetheless!
I’m wearing this in an upcoming video, give it a day or two and you’ll see it in action. Hope all is well guys! Happy Monday!! xox
Remember that tweet about a week back of my NOTD? Here’s a better picture of a recent favorite combo. The picture shown is OPI Strange Tides nail polish layered beneath China Glaze’s White Cap. I told you White Cap is fabulous and makes everything sparkly and wonderful, no?
I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday and talk with you soon loves. xo
HMMM.. Dulce De Leche by OPI. I can’t quite tell how I feel about you.
This color is alright for me, I’m not totally in love though it didn’t bother me enough to remove it immediately. It’s subtle and gets the job done, but if it disappeared out of my stash at any moment, I’m not sure how long it would take me to notice! Any other ideas for a deeper nude that works on fair skin? I’d love to hear what you think!
Sorry for the short posts lately. I hope that’s better than no swatches at all!
Oh I long for the days when I had nicely shaped, semi-long nails. This picture was taken before I severely tore the crap out of my ring finger nail.. I trimmed them all down yesterday. Lucky for me, I took a ton of pictures, swatches of various colors in my collection before the breakage occurred. Let’s hope my nails grow back asap, k?

What an odd color to capture. Believe it or not, both pictures are OPI’s Glacier Bay Blues! It all depends on how the light hits the polish.. I don’t know where the urge for a dark blue/green/purple color came from but I’m currently sporting this one on my toesies.
Glacier Bay Blues came out in 2004 for the OPI Canadian Collection. Seeing that it hit the racks quite a while ago, the text on the bottom of the bottle is black and not green like we’re used to seeing today (black text = a time before the newer formula, Big3Free, etc).
In terms of the color, Glacier Bay Blues is really pretty and has a lot of dimension to it. This is 2 coats. Dark polishes like these are more commonly worn in the fall/winter months but hey! It’s nearing winter in Australia:)
Oh, and it has a long skinny brush! So weird, I completely forgot about that. :^)
Happy Mother’s Day to all mama’s out there. I think this pink is the perfect mom color- subtle but has a bit of shimmer to make it interesting. Japanese Rose Garden applies nearly perfectly in one coat but as you might know by now- I throw on a second coat for a bit of lasting power. What do you think? Would your mom sport this or is she a bit funkier? Or more of a natural non-polish sort of a lady? My mom would wear this but also branches from time to time. Happy Mother’s Day ladies to you all!!! xo
