OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips

OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips is a perfect pink. It’s so … pink! I’m fairly rubbish when it comes to describing colours. I try my best, but there are only so many ways you can say pink. This is apparently, according to the OPI website, a hot pink. It originally came out as part […] Read more

OPI Muir Muir On The Wall | Swatch and Review

This is a swatch of OPI Muir Muir On The Wall, from the San Francisco collection of Autumn 2013. The final effect of this polish is of an auburn brown with bronze shimmer. In make-up though, it’s a copper/bronze shimmer in a sheer black base. It is supposed to be, according to OPI, a plum […] Read more

OPI OPI … Eurso Euro | Swatch and Review

This is a swatch of OPI OPI … Eurso Euro. It comes from the Euro Centrale collection, from Spring 2013. It’s a deep blue. But it’s at the “about-to-become-purple” end of the blue spectrum. It’s not a dark blue like navy, but it has a rich, deep colour to it. It’s beautiful and I absolutely […] Read more

OPI DS Lapis with Blue and Silver Chevrons: Y is for: You

It’s the penultimate challenge week in the A2Z series challenge. So, we’re at Y, which is for You. Well, not you … me. That’s how I interpreted it anyway. And I have done some blue with silver chevrons nails. I spent ages trying to think of what best represented me. I’ve done plenty of manicures […] Read more

Jagged stencilled zigzags using OPI Miss Universe 2013 collection

I have another smART nails stencils manicure today. This one is P017, and I don’t really know how to describe it. It’s a sort of zigzag, but looks like some scary pointed fang teeth as well! Actually, I’ve just checked on the smART nails website, and they’re called “big teeth”, so I was right! I […] Read more

Orange and cream zigzags with OPI

I wore this manicure back in April, but forgot to post it until now. I painted it for my Mum’s 70th birthday celebrations, and I was going to do all my nails with the zigzags, but simply ran out of time and so I left it at just one accent nail. The orange is OPI […] Read more

OPI Do You Lilac It? with Lilac Stamping using MoYou Nails

I was offered some items by MoYou Nails for review and chose a lilac stamping polish and a couple of plates. They also sent a stamper and scraper. I chose lilac as I already have white and black stamping polishes, so wanted to try out another colour. It stamped well for such a light colour […] Read more

Hawaiian Hibiscus Stamped Gradient: TrOPIcal: GOT Polish Challenge

For today’s tropical prompt in the Golden Oldie Thursday (GOT) Polish Challenge I immediately thought of the ubiquitous Hawaiian floral print. I checked to see if Hawaii is in the tropics and happily discovered that it is (just). A little more research revealed that the flower that features is a Hawaiian Hibiscus. And after yet […] Read more

OPI Excuse Moi!: Jelly: Never-ending Pile Challenge

I had three untried jelly polishes to choose from for today’s Never-ending Pile challenge. I went with OPI Excuse Moi!, which came from the Muppets collection that was released at Christmas 2011. I wasn’t even into painting my nails then (I got hooked in the summer of 2012), but I bought this just recently, in […] Read more
