Hump Day: OPI Berry Good Dancers

June 29, 2011

Happy Hump Day! Today we have OPI’s Berry Good Dancers, which is a lovely polish despite being a terrible pun.

 

Here’s my song for the day: Neko Case + Nick Cave exclusive for True Blood. I haven’t actually watched the season premiere yet, but it’s True Blood- how could it be bad? Also, my favorite promo poster ever:

And I just noticed the “thou shalt not crave thy neighbor.” Even better. Happy Hump Day again!

Tuesday (aka new stuff on iTunes day): OPI Chapel of Love

June 28, 2011

I mark my days of the week by when stuff comes out: Monday is a new Dear Prudence advice chat on Slate.com, Tuesday is new stuff on iTunes/new book release day, Wednesday is new Savage Love day, Thursday is regular Dear Prudence day, and Friday is Dear Margo (who used to be Prudence, actually) day.

Today we have one of my favorite work acceptable polishes (and most of the ones I like aren’t work acceptable): OPI Chapel of Love.

 

Yep, that’s cat hair in the background there. Having a white cat comes in handy.

Double Swatch Day

June 26, 2011

Hell0 everyone! So I swatch in sets of seven for each day of the week, but like an idiot, I forgot to count Sunday, so there will be two swatch sets today- China Glaze Hey Sailor! and OPI Kinky in Helsinki.

 

 

Sunday Swatches I

June 19, 2011

Happy Sunday everyone! From now on, I’ll be doing a set of swatches a week (posting a preview on Sunday and posting a new one every day) until I complete my collection, which is about 130 bottles (and I’m always adding more.) This week’s polishes:

Essie’s Dive Bar is a bluish green that’s almost black toned, but not quite. It seems to be exclusive to Essie’s mass retail carriers, like Meijer and Target. If you like deep teal shades, Dive Bar is worth the hunt.

Zoya Freja is a mid toned smokey grey. There’s not a hint of blue or black in this shade. It’s like a lighter version of China Glaze’s Black Diamond.

Sephora by OPI Set the Mood is a slightly dark pink. It’s shimmery but it has kind of a cloudy feel to it- it’s interesting. Available exclusively through Sephora.

China Glaze Strawberry Fields is a very happy medium pink with gold flecks (I believe it’s called glass flecked). It’s like bubblegum with glitter, but it’s still appropriate for grown women :).

China Glaze Riveter Rouge is a rusty red with large gold glitter flecks. It’s like a lighter, sparklier version of Foxy, from the same China Glaze collection.

China Glaze Hey Sailor! is a slightly orangey red creme. It’s a great, very classic color. It reminds me of Revlon’s Fire & Ice campaign from the ’50’s.

OPI Kinky in Helsinki is a medium pink. It’s really a fuschisa, with its slight purple tone. It’s a bit like a darker version of Set the Mood.
