Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Blue Matte Sparkle, 2 coats on pointer and ring fingers [previously swatched]
OPI Russian Navy Suede, 2 coats on middle and pinky fingers
So when I swatched the Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Matte Sparkle polishes, I pulled out some other polishes for comparison. For today’s post, I pulled out OPI Russian Navy Suede.
They are very similar, but the OPI has a silvery base where the BHB has a golden base. The base to the OPI also seems more tightly packed with the silvery base, or maybe the particles are larger? The good thing about the BHB though is that it doesn’t stain like the OPI! 😀

I told you all last night that I was going to be taking off that spotted marbled mani and starting from scratch today and so here we are! I just wasn’t going to be able to handle the chipping on that mani plus I wasn’t entirely pleased with it. But this? Yeah, it’s summery and fresh and hot. I luff it. ❤ I also have a short tutorial for you so keep reading and don’t forget to share! Continue reading

Oh my gosh, so many steps to create this mani but it is well worth it. It came out really nicely and I have been flashing and moving my nails around a lot. I’ll detail the steps I took below! Continue reading
OPI Charmed by a Snake, 2 coats and no top coat. Formula was thin, per usual for older OPIs.
For some reason, I had thought this dried similarly to OPI Suede polishes so when I put it on and it didn’t dry like that, I was a little disappointed. I admit, I didn’t even wear it as a full mani because I was dissatisfied.

OPI German-icure, 2 coats and no top coat, middle finger
OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest, 2 coats and no top coat, ring finger
OPI Midnight in Moscow, 2 coats and no top coat, pinky finger
So when I was swatching the Zodiac nail polish collection from Hot Topic’s Blackheart Beauty line, I thought that Capricorn looked familiar. I went through my OPI polishes and pulled out three I thought looked similar. Continue reading

OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, 3 coats
OPI Vant To Bite My Neck, 2 coats
I’m back with more purple polish to show you for OPI Mad Love Color of the Month! I had fun with this but what’s silly is that when I went to paint on my lines, I couldn’t get them straight. *face palm* I just rolled with it and made them all diagonal. 😀 So now it looks like I did it on purpose. 😛
