OPI Fall 2020 Muse of Milan Collection

  Hello friends and welcome back to my blog! It's been a while since the last time I posted, but I promise this post will be well worth it. Here we are. OPI's Fall 2020 collection, Muse of Milan. I purchased the entire 12-piece nail polish set at Polish Pick. Most of these were completely opaque in two coats, except for three in which I'll name throughout this post. Without further ado, here they are. Twelve Milan-inspired beauties. Addio Bad Nails, Ciao Great Nails A grayed-out light purple with some shimmer. This took two coats for opacity. Complimentary Wine A beautiful wine creme. This was the only creme in this collection that took three coats for opacity. Drama at La Scala A medium teal creme. This one took two coats for opacity. Duomo Days, Isola Nights A beautiful medium to deep blue creme. This one took two coats for opacity. Fall-ing For Milan A light neutral brown with bronze shimmer. This took two coats for opacity. Galleria Vittorio Violet A cool, light violet

Nail of The ... (Double Dose)

 Hello everyone and welcome to another Nail of the ... post. I've kept the period of time empty because of however long I feel like wearing the polish and/or how long it lasts before it starts to chip. So, without further ado, let me show you two this time. August 1, 2020 Holo Taco all three Colored Flakies over One Coat Black And the thumb "macro" shot. August 8, 2020 Holo Taco Gold and Purple Flakies over Solar Unicorn Skin over One Coat Black  And the thumb "macro" shot. My God, look at all those flakies! I don't know what look I was going for but I think it turned out sweet as fuck! The recipe for this baby! One coat of One Coat Black (of course) Two coats of Solar Unicorn Skin One generous coat of Gold Flakie Holo Taco One generous coat of Purple Flakie Holo Taco Well, that's it for today. I'll have more updates for you after I have more swatches ready in each color category. The next post I should have for you will be the OPI Fall 2020 Muse of

Updates To This Blog

Hello my friends! Wanna know where I've been and why I haven't blogged for the past two weeks? Well, here's why. I've been updating the polish repository. Swatching, taking pictures, then uploading to the gallery widget. All to bring you a bigger gallery of my polish photos. I've finished with the corals, the oranges, the peaches, the greens, and the yellows and golds. And just today I've finished with the silvers and, FINALLY, the reds. So that's what I've been doing for the past two weeks.

... Day? Week? However long my nail polish will last for a given period of time before it starts to chip or I feel like wiping it off? Hello dear readers, I'm back once again. You know my  last post ? Well, today I have a full manicure, as it were, to show you. Here it is: Holo Taco One Coat Black with Blue Flakie Holo Taco over Solar Unicorn Skin And the thumb shot if you want it: I love the look of Blue Flakie Holo Taco over Solar Unicorn Skin. I was going for a simultaneously fire and ice look and this didn't disappoint me at all. Seeing the picture of the polish on my nails versus seeing the polish live on my nails really doesn't do this one justice: you've got to see it live and in person! Well, that's it for today, dear reader. Until the next time, hugs and kisses. Update, July 28, 2020: This manicure I posted about on Friday. Well, it lasted three full days from Friday through Monday until I took a shower Monday evening. While in the shower, the polish on thr

A Tale of Three

Hello dear readers it's me again! This time I have a trio of polishes I want to show you. Here they are, Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow. (All of these are two quick and dirty coats) Version 1 This was the one I needed flash for. It's a frosty limon.  Version 2 This one looks to me like a pastel yellow. Okay, not particularly pastel since pastel implies softness and gray. No, this looks more like a slightly whiter based yellow to me. Version 3 The one I'm wearing right now. This is the egg-yolk yellow color I've been looking for since for some reason, someone (not sure who) said that egg-yolk yellow looks great on Deep Autumn people. Whoever said that isn't wrong because I like the way this color looks live on my nails. I always like to compare three different nail polishes, all with the same name but in different tones of the same color. This week was Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow. I might update this post, including thi

Nail Polish Spam Fest Part 2

Hello everyone I'm back with part 2 of my Nail Polish Spam Fest. Note:  The first polish pictured was taken on July 8, 2020. The rest were taken on July 9, 2020. China Glaze Pleather Weather A light gray matte. This was the sole picture taken on July 8. From the Fall 2018 Ready to Wear collection. OPI Push and Shove A bright silver chrome. This came from Gwen Stefani's January 2014 collection. China Glaze Recycle A medium neutral gray creme. This came from the Spring 2008 E-Collection. China Glaze OMG A silver with holographic shimmer (or, as many call it, a linear holographic). The original came out in Spring (or perhaps summer) of 2008. This is from the Flashback collection in 2018. OPI Tell Me About It Stud A classic true red creme. This picture makes the polish look pinker than it is in real life. From the Summer 2018 Grease (40th Anniversary) collection. Color Club Black Magic A deep charcoal with chunky holographic shimmer. I bought this off the shelf at Walmart back in M
