Good morning all! Today I have two Sephora by OPI polishes to show you: If You’ve Got It Haunt It, and Spark-tacular. Both I picked up on clearance at Big Lots like…ages ago.
If You’ve Got It Haunt It is a black based nail polish with iridescent glitters and silver flecks. This is sheer and dries gritty. This is 3 thin coats plus top coat.
Spark-tacular is a clear based glitter topper with glitters of silver, orange, green, pink, and blue. This is base heavy but has a good spread of glitters. This is 1 coat and no top coat over OPI Stay Off My Lawn!!
I dunno, I expected IYGIHI to be way prettier based on the bottle, so I’m a little disappointed.
Afternoon all! This post published this morning with nothing to show for it. Oops. That seems to be happening a lot lately but I gotta tell you, having a baby that gets me up all hours of the night, plus a toddler and 2 older kids that get up early in the morning – man, it’s freaking exhausting! This is why God created coffee. 😛 Anyway, how about I finally show you Baroness X Fire Opal over Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In?
I started with Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In? This was a hard polish to capture but it’s a grape purple that shifts to a red-toned purple and also to orange. It also has a hint of yellow sparkle. Formula was floody and sheer and applied patchy. 😦 This is 3 coats and no top coat. Continue reading
Hi everyone! Today I have another older polish from the Sephora by OPI line – I Only Shop Vintage. I believe I picked this up from Big Lots a long time ago. It’s one of those pretty/ugly colors that you either love or hate so hang on and check out the photos!
I Only Shop Vintage is a camel-toned (haha, I almost typed camel toed!) base polish with gold and green flecks. Formula was thin and it applied sheer. That being said, This is 2 coats plus top coat.
I ain’t gonna lie, I’m on the love spectrum for this polish! It’s weird but Deborah from Love.Varnish turned me onto pretty/ugly colors and I’ve kinda developed an obsession with them! What’s your favorite pretty/ugly nail polish color?
Afternoon all! As I’ve been slogging through my backlog of polishes to swatch, I’ve realized for awhile I went on a big purple polish kick. I’ve mostly grown out of it but geesh, purple polish galore over here! Now I’m on a blue polish kick. 😀 Apropos of nothing, I have two Sephora by OPI polishes today: Opening Night and Mermaid to Order.
Opening Night is a dark blue polish with cobalt blue glowiness and also hints of purple. Formula was thin and sheer; application was patchy. It dries satin. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Mermaid to Order is a shimmery turquoise blue with shifts to purple, teal, and blue. Formula was thin and sheer; application was brushstrokey. It might stain nails! It didn’t stain mine but did stain the skin beside my nails. This is 3 thin coats and no top coat.
I gotta admit, I kinda miss seeing SOPI polishes in stores, overall they were really a great line (which is probably why I have quite a few, all picked up on clearance/Big Lots/Ross).
Hey everyone! You might remember this Sephora by OPI from my soft + sweet gradient a few weeks back. I wanted to use it on its own because it’s just so pretty! I paired it with ellagee Punch a Higher Floor for some added punch. 😛
SOPI Ruby Without A Cause is a red-purple based polish that shifted to royal purple to blue and also had a green shimmer to it. Continue reading
So this was originally going to be my Valentine’s Day post but after I wrote up the post and scheduled it, it literally disappeared into the ether. 😦 Which made me super frustrated and angry. So I decided to just show it to you at a later date! Let’s check out this soft and sweet gradient with Celestial Cosmetics LE May 2016, Lilypad Lacquer Nice As Spice, Sephora by OPI Ruby Without a Cause, and The Don Deeva Varnish Pony on Acid [gift].
I started off with 2 coats and no top coat of Celestial Cosmetics LE May 2016. Formula is a little thin and sheer but otherwise okay. Continue reading
Good afternoon, beautiful reader! I’m so excited about today’s prompt for the 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge, so let’s jump right in.
The prompt for today is “Ugly Sweater Nail Art”. I have to admit, I’m not “hipster” enough to really get why ugly sweaters are cool now. BUT, I really had fun searching for a design for today! I saw several sweaters where Rudolph was vomiting up Christmas bows, so I decided to go for that. (Check out more sweaters here, you’ll see my inspiration there!)
I started off with 2 coats of Sinful Colors My Turn, which I had forgotten was a matte nail polish. This is 2 coats:
I then placed striping tape on each nail and painted Sephora by OPI Frankly I Don’t Give A-dam over My Turn.
Then using admittedly a lot of other Sinful Colors nail polishes that I didn’t bother to write down, I created Rudolph, and some bows.
I’m cracking myself up over here, because looking at this makes me giggle. Let’s check out some more awesomely “ugly” nail art for today:
I’m also participating in the annual holiday nails blog hop hosted by The Sparkle Queen:
I can’t wait for you to tell me what you think of this, so holler at me in the comments below!
