Cute Little Vixen ~ OPI

 
Hi,
Today I have Cute Little Vixen from OPI’s Mariah Carey holiday collection. I didn’t get a chance to wear it around the holidays but I am sharing it now. OPI calls it a red/violet base, I can see that but I would call it mulberry with a gold shimmer.
See:

 
 
 
I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was great and it dried quickly. It is so pretty! I would wear this year round. Does it just scream holidays?

Pop Artist ~ Funky Fingers



Hey Everyone!
The weather has been really cold the last week so I wanted to share a bright neon that would make it seem like spring or close to summer! Pop Artist is a bright pink crème or a neon pink. It is so pretty and fun.
Here It Is:
 
 
 
 
 
I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was good and it dried quickly. I wore this a couple of weeks ago when the sun was out.  It is not streaking in the pictures, it glows in spots in the sun. I love that. I am still loving neons! Is anybody else loving them too?

Incognito In Sausalito ~ OPI ~ Blue Monday

 

Blue Monday!
Sorry I didn’t post last week, it was a rough week. We had our entire downstairs flooring replaced and it was a pain, it took 6 days and it’s still not done!
OPI’s Incognito In Sausalito from the San Francisco Collection is called an almost black-blue. I think it’s a deep midnight blue.
See:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was good. It was very shiny. I can see a little black. I like this color but I think it’s been done. It did stain my nails and my fingers when I removed it, Yuk! Do you see the black in it?
** I am having problems with blogger. I have the most recent Internet Explorer and it is not compatible so I am having problems loading my post and it is changing my photos, making them lighter. Sorry! I am trying to work it out/fix it.

First Edition ~ Finger Paints

 
Hi,
I saw someone on TV wearing a very bright purple lacquer and I really wanted to find one that color. I saw Finger Paints First Edition and I thought it was close. First Edition is a deep neon purple crème. So pretty!
See What You Think:
 
 
 
 
 
I am wearing 3 coats and 1 coat of top coat. It was somewhat runny and sheer when applying but the payoff is good! I really like this color but it is not quite what I saw on TV. I think what I am looking for is a very bright purple, maybe not neon. I think I may have to look at my collection and see if I already own one. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Keeping Suzi At Bay ~ OPI ~ Blue Monday

 

Here is another Blue Monday!
I have a blue crème from OPI’s San Francisco Collection. Keeping Suzi At Bay is a navy blue just like OPI describes it.
Here It Is:
 
 
 
 
 
I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was good and it dried quickly. My only issue is that it did stain my fingers a little when I took it off. It is very pretty but a little boring. What blue polish do you find exciting?

Embarca-Dare Ya! ~ OPI

Yay its Friday!
I was in the mood to wear a pink and I remembered I had Embarca-Dare Ya! from OPI’s San Francisco collection in my untrieds. This one is a magenta base with gold shimmer.
Here It Is:
 
 
 


 
I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was good and it dried quickly. I think this is such a beautiful polish considering it doesn’t look that good in the bottle. Do you buy a polish even when it doesn’t look so pretty in the bottle?

Giovanna ~ Zoya

 
Hi,
Zoya describes Giovanna as an emerald green metallic. To me it’s a greenish blue base with micro green shimmer. It is pretty but I wish it was all green.
See:
 
 
 
 
I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. Let me say that this was one of the worst polishes I ever got from Zoya! Zoya is usually so good. It was so runny it just made a mess. Then when I took it off it stained my nails and my skin. How annoying! It is pretty but I will never where it again because of the formula. What is your worst polish problem?

Margritte’s Masterpiece ~ Finger Paints ~ Blue Monday




Hey Everyone,
It’s Blue Monday! I have another bright blue! I think the name on the bottle is incorrect, I think it is supposed to be Magritte’s Masterpiece after the painting. Anyway to me it’s a sharp cobalt blue crème. It’s gorgeous!
See:




 
 
I am wearing 2 coats and one coat of top coat. The formula was a tiny bit thin but it was fine. It also dried very quickly. I just love this color. I did get mixed comments in it such as interesting and too bright but I also got some good ones. How would you describe it?

220 Volts ~ Funky Fingers ~ Blue Monday

 
Blue Monday!
Funky Fingers 220 Volts is a bright blue crème. I think it could be called neon or “smurf blue”. It is so pretty!
Here it is:
 
 
 
 
  
I am wearing 3 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was a little thin so that is why I had to put 3 coats. I really love this because it is bright, cheerful, and neon. I love neons and always will but do you still love neons?
