OPI Pros & Bronze

Hey dolls, today I’m wearing a polish that I wanted to take off immediately after I put it on last night, but I needed to finish some work. OPI Pros & Bronze is a color that I wanted to love so much. It looks great in the bottle and I had high hopes for what I thought it would look

Fail ~ Green Ombre Mani

I’m sure you all have had times like these. You have a vision for a mani, you polish your nails, and then you sit back to view the job you’ve done. If you’re a blogger, you take some pictures and then upload them to the computer. In my mind, I knew I wanted to do a green ombre mani. I

Using Shatter to Save a Mani…

Hey dolls, I’ve had OPI Love is a Racket on for less than 2 days and its already chipping (the first chip came within 24 hours). This just reminds me why I don’t typically go for OPI polishes. I guess they don’t work well with my body chemistry because it never fails…they chip after just one day. It really sucks

Most people know at least one person who has been affected by breast cancer so its important to continue the

OPI Big Hair, Big Nails with Juicy Couture Gold Glitter

Hey dolls, the theme for this Monday’s mani in the Polish-aholics Anonymous fb group was creative layering. Since I had a great first experience with jelly sandwich manis (see the post here), I figured I would do another one. This time I went with another unused OPI sorbet, Big Hair, Big Nails. This is a gorgeous orange jelly that leans

Pink Wednesday ~ Jelly Sandwich Mani with OPI Do You Think I’m Tex-y?

Happy hump day! For this Pink Wednesday I knocked out two more untrieds by doing a jelly sandwich mani. I started with OPI Do You Think I’m Tex-y? I only have this color in a mini bottle, but I definitely want to invest in the full size. OPI minis are just so darn awkward to use and so tiny. I

Pink Wednesday ~ OPI Come to Poppy

Hey dolls, we’ve reached the middle of another week. This Pink Wednesday I’m wearing OPI’s Come to Poppy. This is the only color that I really wanted from the recent Nice Stems Collection. The name itself is just so adorable and enough of a reason to get it. Come to Poppy is described as a shimmering coral pink. I think
