OPI Russian Navy

Hello hello!

Today I have the color my mom get me for Easter, Russian Navy! It isn't very Easter-esqu but I still love it!

This polish is pretty old and is a part of OPI's core collection. This color is a great deep navy. What makes it stand out from the rest, is the magenta shimmer that shines in the navy base. It is so lovely! In the sun, this polish comes to life! The only thing that made me sad about this polish was that when you look at the bottle, you see so much purple shimmer yet, not nearly as much shimmer shows on the nails. The polish is still a stunner though. Check it out!

see all that purple shimmer in the bottle? drooool.

These pictures don't do the polish nearly as much justice as they could. This polish is a winner if you want a pretty navy though! What do you guys think?

Nicole by OPI Purple Yourself Together

Hello hello!
Today I have a color that is super cayute! It's called Purple Yourself Together by Nicole by OPI. It's a Target exclusive and you should definitely check it out if you get a chance!

Application was great! It went on in three lovely coats. I actually ended up wearing this polish for almost a week and all the way through Easter! I had almost no chips, just tip wear for the first few days which was awesome. The color is a light purple, lilac even, and it is filled with a rich gold shimmer! It's HOT. Being a purple fan, anything purple and remotely interesting becomes loved and this one was no exception. Check it out!

All of these were taken in artificial lighting. Look at all of that shimmah! Yum yum.

Sorry my cuticles are not pretty. :'(

So what do you guys think? Is this one a winner or what? This polish is available at Target and has been since March so don't miss out! Also, check out the other three polishes in this collection, they're cute too and are calling my name! I might just have to grab another.

Also, I'm happy I'm starting to get a few followers. (more than 1 hahaha)

Polka Dot Stamping!

Hey hey hey!

Today I have a fun manicure for you guys.

I know there's a chippy on my index finger):


For the base coat, I used China Glaze Sweet Hook. For the polka dots I used China Glaze For Audrey and Bundle Monder plate BM19.

I know my pinky sucks. I did my best! I'm proud I even got this to work semi-sorta! Stamping is still not a super strong point with me. I think the dots would have turned out fuller with a thicker polish, but I still like it!

The inspiration behind this manicure? Well, I love Sweet Hook. It's such a cute lavender creme. Then, I asked a friend to pick a color and he said green. I froze... and then I thought hmm... For Audrey is a blue... with a green tint right? Right! And, wa-la!

Also: Interested in another giveaway? Check this one out!
