Nail Spam!

Hello Friends!

I mentioned I might have to do a "spam" post, and I have decided that's probably the only way I'll catch up on the plethora of manicures I have to share with you. 


Click READ MORE below to see more photos and details!! :)


In an effort to avoid repeating myself, I will start by saying that each photo shows one coat of base coat, two coats of color, and one coat of a fast drying top coat. :)

Zoya - Rica

This polish is gorgeous! It is a coral pink/red/orange shade with tons of sparkle. Slightly difficult to photograph, but you get the point. The formula is very easy to work with. I have yet to find a Zoya that isn't perfect.


OPI - Live And Let Die


*Sigh* I had high hopes for this one, but I was disappointed when I painted it on my nails. You can tell in the photos that the polish in the bottle is a dark teal with some pretty golden shimmer. The teal color does not really show up on the nail. It's practically black with a shimmer that is much more subtle than in the bottle. The formula was really awesome. It was almost opaque in one coat, but I did two for good measure.



OPI - I Have A Herring Problem


Thankfully the polish in the bottle matched the polish that ended up on my nails! I guess I would describe this as a light bluish-teal with some silver shimmer? Very easy formula. Pretty color. :)


Nicole by OPI - Mer-maid For Each Other


Eeeeeeeee! I love this color. I will be using it again, that is certain! I realized after it was too late that a good way to show the color shift in this polish is to put my fingernails under water. I'll be sure to do that next time. 

This is a duo-chrome that shifts between green and blue (with a tiny hint of gold in there somewhere). The top coat bubbled like crazy for some reason, that was not the polish. 



Thanks SO much for dropping by. Let me know what you think about the "Nail Spam".

Be sure to keep an eye out for some more posts this week!
