Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a great Tuesday. I’m hoping for a better day today than yesterday; it was so windy yesterday – I mean it was really howling – and my ears and head hurt soooo bad. 😦 I think the wind is supposed to die down, it’s just going to be cold. (Well, it is Montana in January, we can’t have great weather!)
Anyway, onto today’s polishes: the OPI Gwen Stefani collection. I have loved No Doubt & Gwen Stefani for years, and even though I knew there were likely some shades that were “normal”, I knew I had to buy them all. (I’ll have to review the red, Over & Over A-Gwen separately, as my beauty supply store doesn’t have it yet.) There are some definite must-buy polishes here, so let’s get to it!
First, let’s get Push & Shove out of the way. I know so many bloggers are really digging on this chrome/mirror metallic shade, but…I just don’t like it. Nope. It shows every flaw, every mistake, every bump & groove in my nails. I did try to start with a different base coat, then Lay Down That Base, then Push & Shove, but it was a hot, hot mess. This is 2 coats:
Next is 4 In The Morning, shown is 2 coats without topcoat and with OPI top coat. This is a great black, but the shimmer keeps it from being too chalkboard-like, if you know what I mean. This is a must-buy.
Okay, what are your thoughts on this collection? Do you like Push & Shove or not? What’s your favorite Gwen Stefani or No Doubt song? Of course, I have to leave you with two of my favorites! Until tomorrow, rock out!
