I already showed you the nail polish collection that really caught my attention - OPI’s Nordic, inspired by Scandinavia, and here are two more collections – Essie and Orly.
Wow, just wow, this collection is gorgeous. I’d wear all the shades, except Brush It On, which is beautiful, just not my style. But Highlight, Smoked Out, Darkest Shadow, Edgy and Blend look really cool.
Recently I was thinking about how my beauty habits and preferences changed over years… Looks like one of the best examples for that would be my nails.
I used to love really long and square shaped nails. On the first photo, which is from 2010, where I am wearing OPI’s Baby It’s Coal Outside, they are not that long but you get the idea. The thought of cutting and filing down my nails back then was horrifying.

San Francisco is one of the most amazing cities in the World, so I am personally really excited to see the whole collection dedicated to it. And it’s the OPI’s Fall 2013 nail polish collection.
Also how beautiful are the promo images?
The shades are:
- A-Piers to Be Tan, I shore do like this chocolaty tan.
- Dining al Frisco, Just feast your eyes on this fresh-air blue!
- Haven’t the Foggiest, Can’t tell you why I love this misty gray…I just do!
- Peace & Love & OPI, This holographic sage and eggplant is far out!
- Keeping Suzi at Bay, There’s no holding back this assertive navy blue.
- Incognito in Sausalito, You better keep this almost-black blue under wraps.
- Lost on Lombard, Oh garn-et! I’m all
I really like this Metallic Grey nail polish from Couture Colour. It is a beautiful shade, very dark grey with subtle shimmer. Although it may not be as complex as some high end nail polishes, I still like how it reflects in the sun.
It goes on smoothly and looks opaque with two coats, as shown below on the photo.
It has a long and thin brush which is not my personal favourite but it allows a more precise application, I guess.Read More
Believe it or not, but this is my first China Glaze nail polish because it’s not that easy to track it down here. But when I got an opportunity I just had to get at least one so I’ve chosen Wagon Trial which is a really beautiful colour.
I really like black based nail polishes and this one is black with greenish/yellowish sheen to it.
I have to say that I am impressed with the quality and with the staying power (3 days with no chipping for me) of this nail polish and I am sure that I will be getting more China Glaze products when I get such opportunity. There are quite a few shades that I really like but unfortunately the stock of the shop I get them from is very limited.
I am wearing 2 coats on the photo above. Isn’t it beautiful?Read More
