OPI South Beach

So this week's collection is the OPI's new South Beach Collection. I only for a few bottles, the ones that attracted my eyes of course.

OPI Done Out In Deco


This is my favorite color of the colection. A pretty lilac lavender ish type of color. Really spring like. This took 3 coats. Two coats was enough but I like my nails to look sharp! =)

OPI Feelin' Hot Hot Hot!


This color is hot hot hot indeed. Hot pink that is. It's not your typical neon pink, but it's still a bright pink. It kind of reminds me of China Glaze's Mom's Chiffon. Not bad I suppose.

OPI Miami Beet

The sun was especially strong which made this look more pinkish red than purple-ish. Nothing special about this color.

OPI Party in My Cabana


This is a pink I've never worn before. It's sort of like a dark pink, but bright at the same time? I liked it but not enough to put my list of favorite nail polishes.

OPI Overexposed in South Beach


Loveeeeeee this color. Sure it's another one of those shimmery plum like colors. This reminds me of Zoya's Jacy. There are REALLY tiny silver glitters on these which makes it look quite interesting.

OPI Bronzed to Perfection


I was really hype for this one. Bronze?! Talk about unique! But it totally did not go well with my skin tone. My friend classified my nails as "Poopy nails" because the color on my nails looked like poop to him. He suggested I draw a poop figure on my nails and so I did..I really like this color but it just didn't match me.

Ladies and Gents, I now introduce, poopy nail:



I just ordered my Misa Living on the Fast Lane Collection, and China Glaze Summer Days collection. Can't wait to try THOSE on! Until next time!

OPI Designer Series Extravagance

More OPI designer series

OPI DS Extravagance



Ah look at the beautiful holo-ness<3 I'm in love with it. I asked my boyfriend what did he want my nail colors to be. He made up a color "rooting raspberry" LOL silly him, so I'm like rooting raspberry huh? And DS Extravagance came to mind. I mean it does look raspberry-ish like. But rooting? I don't know. I don't even know where he came up with that name. Really love this color though. But then again, which polish don't I like?!

BIG post (somewhat)

BUSY BUSY BUSY! Is all I can say. School and work is a toughie. I can't stand it but it's life. Not gonna say much more about my life. Let's move on to the swatches!

Zoya Lindsay



Just in time for Valentines Day! I decided to do my nails pink and sweet =) This hot pink is SO pretty. It's filled with multi-colored glitters. Gorgeous! But my pretty index nail broke. *tears*

OPI You're a Doll



With the weather in New York, can't get much sunlight. Even if we do get sunlight, I'm never available to take a picture of it. This color may be boring to some. It is kind of boring to me, until I noticed the red speckles on it. You gotta look real close. I had this color for awhile because I forgot to stock up on nail polish remover. Oh the horror!!

OPI Purple with a Purpose



Woosh! Another one of my favorite nail polishes of all time. Purple with a Purpose is a gorgeous vibrant purple. So bright, so lovely, so AWESOME!!

OPI Light My Sapphire



When I first got this color I was like, where's the blue? You have to have a lot of lighting to see the hint of blue. Very mysterious color but also a boring black blue color. Have we not seen enough of that color? By the way, like my Hello Kitty bandage? I got a terrible paper cut from the evil Chemistry textbook.

Nubar Indigo Illusions




This is my first time using Nubar. I must say it's pretty interesting. It looks like a denim like blue, but with low lighting it looks green, and at times it looks purple. I love nail polishes like these!

Random Nail Art


I get bored when my nails are plain and simple. So I decided to try out and play with my nail art. I found this design on a youtube video and attempted to do it on mine. Unfortunately it didn't turn out as great. These designs were intended for a french manicure, not plain boring nails. But hey! I tried!

Misa Toxic Seduction



The beautiful green. Need I say more? :)

And as some of you may know that MAC and Sanrio came together to make Hello Kitty cosmetics that are limited edition (supposedly). I went out and bought myself a bunch of them just to have and to play with. They were too cute to resist, as I'm in love with Hello Kitty.




The nail polishes. Of course..



Look how adorable the lipsticks are!!

Now, I told myself that I will NOT cut my cuticles ever again. But I'm a bowler, so my nails on my right hand gets really tough especiall the cuticles. It became very thick and I decided to cut it A LITTLE. BUT little did I know I cut too deep, and it HURT! *points at picture* I am NEVER NEVER EVER cutting my cuticles again..




And finally I decided to take a picture of some of my nail polish collection:



My boyfriend thinks I'm crazy for having this many nail polish. I tell him, you think THIS is a lot? Haha :)

Well that is all for now, this was a really long post. Sorry if I bored you to death. Until next time..................
