Butter London Disco Biscuit

Butter London Disco Biscuit
2 coats
 
Disco Biscuit, a bright pink jelly with purple micro glitter, is from Butter London's Spring/Summer 2012 Collection. I have seen other bloggers to 3-4 coats, but since it's a jelly, I figured I wouldn't mind a bit of VNL so I just did 2 to see what it looked like. And actually, the coverage is pretty good. I did find that coverage at the tips was lacking, even though I did my normal wrapping. It was almost like there was a bit of shrinkage overnight as well.
 
Still, it's an eye-catching pretty bright shade so I'm happy with my mani.
 
My kiddos had their first day of school yesterday and it's hard to believe they are in 3rd and 5th this year! They are growing up so fast.

OPI Get Cherried Away

OPI Get Cherried Away
2 coats


Get Cherried Away is a magenta creme inspired by Cherry Coke. I originally thought the formula on this was nice, and quite pigmented, but once I looked at my pictures I could totally see that I needed another coat. So frustrating!
 
OPI Get Cherried Away is from the Coca-Cola Collection, a 9 piece collection inspired by Coca-Cola beverages. I purchased the "10 Pack of Style", which contains minis of 8 shades along with a mini of Nail Envy as well as the OPI Top Coat. I also purchased a big bottle of Orange You Fantastic, the last shade in the set, because it wasn't available in a mini and because I had to have the complete set in my possession. :-)

OPI Coca-Cola Red

OPI Coca-Cola Red
2 coats


Coca-Cola Red is inspired by regular Coke and is my favorite shade so far- and of course it's my favorite Coca-Cola drink. I found the formula on this polish to be perfect! Two coats gave complete coverage and it is so shiny and glossy and just gorgeous.

OPI Orange You Fantastic!

OPI Orange You Fantastic! (1 coats)
over OPI You're So Vain-illa (3 coats)



Orange You Fantastic has different shapes and sizes of red and gold glitter in a sheer yellow/orange base and is inspired by Orange Fanta. I applied one coat over my prior mani of You're So Vain-illa. The formula was pretty great- I got great glitter coverage in just one coat, and the sheer yellow/orange base added a neat tint to the base color I had on. It smoothed out nicely with a coat of Gelous.

OPI You're So Vain-illa

OPI You're So Vain-illa
3 coats


You're So Vain-illa is inspired by Vanilla Coke. I found the formula to be just OK- it needed three coats to get opaque coverage. It is a really pretty shade, but one that gives me a bit of Lobster Hands, so if you are warm-toned like me, you might have the same problem.

OPI Sorry I'm Fizzy Today

OPI Sorry I'm Fizzy Today
3 coats


Sorry I'm Fizzy Today is inspired by Vanilla Coke. I found the formula on this shade to be somewhat problematic. It was chalky, and even after two careful coats, I had streaking and it was visibly uneven, so I applied a third coat to get the coverage I wanted.

OPI My Signature Is "DC"

OPI My Signature Is "DC"
2 coats


My Signature Is "DC" is inspired by Diet Coke. The formula on this was FANTASTIC- it was practically a one-coater, and if I had been a bit more careful on that first coat I could have stopped there. It dried very fast and seemed dry before I even applied my quick-dry top coat. It's also wearing very well.... I painted these on Friday night, took the pic above on Saturday morning, and now it's Monday morning and it still looks fabulous.
