After spending the entire evening trying to fix my computer/internet, my genius boyfriend did it! Woohoo!! That’s what I call serious tenacity – I told him to give up like, three times and still he persevered. Awesome
Anyway, after all that, I’M tired, so another quickie post for you – sorry! I promise to do better soon! In the meantime, check out Nicole by OPI’s Khloe Had a Little Lam Lam, from the Kardashian collection:After seeing stunning shots of this polish on my friend Eugenia’s blog, I knew I had to scoop up this polish, regardless of the fact that I’m really not into the whole Kardashian media-circus-hoopla-whatever you wanna call it. A gorgeous teal creme cannot be passed up, for whatever reason. This is my first Nicole polish, and I have to say, I’m not a huge fan – of the bottle, which looks cute but is a bitch to maneuver with – and also, the brush, which was just a bit too short and therefore I found it a bit tricky to use. But, I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt since it’s my first and maybe I’ll get used to it. Otherwise, it was A-OK – good formula, pigmentation (two coats shown), and glorious glossy color. I’ll try not to pick on it too much for its shortcomings.
Just playing around, here’s a shot of Sally Hansen’s Urban Chic, a holographic sparkle top coat I bought ages ago:I did NOT have the best lighting for this shot, I couldn’t capture the holo at all. You really need proper sunlight for it to be apparent, in most light it just looks like shimmer. However, the sun came out later, and this is what I got:You can see the rainbow so much better here, especially in the bottle!! It’s actually a pretty nice effect top coat, if you’re into that kind of thing…which, generally, I’m not LOL. I don’t know why I picked this up when I did, I think it was on a mega-sale of some sort. I have two other effect top coats – CND Copper Shimmer, and SH’s elusive Hidden Treasure, and I never use either. If I want shimmer or whatever on my polish, I just buy it with it IN the polish already. Just my preference.
Anyway, that’s it for today! Tomorrow is Friday, which is excellent; also, Monday is my day off too, so that makes this gal super happy!! Ciao for now everyone!
