I am alive! I really didn't mean to leave this poor blog so alone, but we seem to have caught one of those horribly nasty colds, and between that and the Jeep being down for the count, I just haven't been able to sit at the computer for long. Let's put it this way, there were several days that I didn't even touch my nails, let alone do a full mani, and that's just unheard of for me. So, now that I'm getting better, it's time to play catchup. Let's get right to it, and see what I did for my 'week' of OPI!
I started with Fiercely Fiona. I nabbed this at an Ulta while waiting for my transport to arrive, and I knew I'd love it. Yellow always has been a color I love on my nails.
Next I went with Smokin In Havana, which was part of the six shades I won from OPI in their Facebook promotion. While this might not be a typical "ME" color, I do really like it, especially the way the shimmer blends in to make it really stand out.
For a nice change of pace, I chose another of my won polishes, Parlez-Vous OPI? I never bought this one, thinking it was too dusty for my liking, but now that I see it on? I do like it. I felt like adding something more, so I grabbed the INM Northern Lights silver top coat.
So, two awesome polishes won so far, what else do we have? How about a marbled mani done with Ski Teal We Drop and Hoodoo Voodoo?! Why yes, I can do that. I really like both of these colors, and I'm glad that they were chosen to be sent to me from OPI. Now if I were much better at marbling, this would have looked even more awesome.
I did love the way the thumb turned out. I guess I just need to practice a lot more. The next one is another I grabbed at Ulta (both were half off, so yay for bargains!), and just slapped on really fast because I was busy. Flit A Bit is an awesome orange, and could very well be the base for the butterfly mani that I did before, and want to do again.
It's not always that I need the bling and glitter, once in a while I do like a plain mani like that. Of course, since I need the practice, I did another marble, with two more polishes I won from OPI - Kinky in Helsinki and Sahara Sapphire. Now, I had SS (the original - I'll have to compare them), but not KiH, and I'm awfully glad to have them both now. I think this marbling job turned out much better.
And the last day of OPI week was Cheyenne Pepper, the last polish OPI sent me. Totally not my type of color, BUT I like it far more than I thought I would.
Okay, so that concludes my OPI week, but it certainly doesn't conclude my using OPI polishes! I've got plenty more in my stash, and I may do another week of them soon. We'll just have to see. In a way, my next post will be OPI, since it will be Nicole by OPI polishes. I'll get to updating my other blog as well, as soon as I can. While I'm off the road from transports, I can catch up. At least, I hope I can.
