L'Oreal Orange You Jealous?

L'Oreal Orange You Jealous? (2 coats)
from the Spring/Summer 2013 Trend Setter Collection
 
While I LOVE this color, I don't quite love the formula. One coat was super-streaky, but when I added a second thicker coat, I wasn't too pleased with how "puffy" it looks. Still, it's a gorgeous shade for this time of the year, and I think I will keep it on as my Easter mani.
 
I received this bottle from House Party when I hosted a L'Oreal Miracle Blur party last year. They send along a group of nail polish to use during the party and this was definitely one of the faves.

OPI Muppets World Tour

 OPI Muppets World Tour (2 coats)
from the Spring 2014 Muppets Most Wanted Collection
 
I was pretty amazed with this glitter- look at the coverage I got from two coats, with no undies. It applied wonderfully too- no monkey business needed to get good coverage, I just applied it like I would any regular polish.
 
 
You can see the different colors better in this shade pic- there are small white and silver glitters, larger white and gold hexs, and larger pink and turquoise hexes as well. I do wish there was a bit more pink and turquoise- on several fingers I just one of those colors.
 
 
I can't wait to try this over another pink- I've seen pics that are just gorgeous!

OPI Girls Love Diamonds

OPI Girls Love Diamonds (3 coats)

from the Major League Baseball Fashion Plate Collection
 
Today I'm wearing another shade from the Mini Hitters set, available on Amazon for $18.25. Six of the seven shades in the MLB Collection are featured in the mini set.  (Right Off the Bat, a frosty navy blue, is not included in the mini set).
 
Girls Love Diamonds is the only sheer shade in the set, and even with additional coats, I don't think it could ever be opaque. I think it works great both on its own and as a topper for a darker shade.

Featuring a range of red, orange, blue and white hues, MLB Collection by OPI shades are ideal to mix, match and wear while fans cheer on their favorite MLB team.

OPI Umpires Come Out At Night

OPI Umpires Come Out At Night (2 coats)

from the Major League Baseball Fashion Plate Collection

(this dries somewhat matte- I did not topcoat the ring finger so you could see this)
 
Today I'm wearing another shade from the Mini Hitters set, available on Amazon for $18.25. Six of the seven shades in the MLB Collection are featured in the mini set.  (Right Off the Bat, a frosty navy blue, is not included in the mini set).
 
I really like this navy blue! I also thought that I'd see what Girls Love Diamonds looked like on top of Umpires Come Out At Night. I love it like this too!

Sephora Formula X in Perfection

Sephora Formula X in Perfection
from the New Neutrals collection ($10.50 for 0.4 fl oz)
 
I have to admit to being disappointed when Sephora discontinued their partnership with OPI last year. Or it might have been the other way around, I don't know. In any case, after the Sephora by OPI line (or OPI for Sephora as it was sometimes referred to) was discontinued, Sephora released the Formula X line. I received this mini (.16 fl oz) as a 100 point perk.
 
I first tried a mani with two thin coats- I find, of course, that thin coats try better and faster than thicker coats. However, two thin coats didn't cover very well, and I dislike having to do three coats as a general rule, so I re-tried the mani with two thicker coats and got much better results.
 
The color is so similar to Metro Chic, of course I love it. It's such a great neutral.
 
Anyone have any other thoughts on this line? I noticed they have an VIB Rouge-exclusive shade called X ♥'s Rouge and embarrassingly enough, I've attained Rouge status, so I am pretty sure I need it. :-)

OPI 7th Inning Strrretch

OPI 7th Inning Strrretch (2 coats)

from the Major League Baseball Fashion Plate Collection
 
My Mini Hitters set, available on Amazon for $18.25, came in this week and I couldn't wait to try another shade from this collection. Six of the seven shades in the MLB Collection are featured in the mini set.  (Right Off the Bat, a frosty navy blue, is not included in the mini set).

Although I found the super-frosty Orange You Going To the Game? to be very brush stroke-y, I loved the somewhat frosty steel blue 7th Inning Strrretch. One coat was very very streaky, but a second coat evened it out nicely.

OPI Orange You Going To the Game?


OPI Orange You Going To the Game? (2 coats)

from the Major League Baseball Fashion Plate Collection
 
My Mini Hitters set, available on Amazon for $18.25, came in yesterday and I couldn't wait to try another shade from this collection. Six of the seven shades in the MLB Collection are featured in the mini set.  (Right Off the Bat, a frosty navy blue, is not included in the mini set).

I found Orange You Going To the Game? to be sadly very brush stroke-y. So disappointed! It's a really pretty springy shade, but the brush strokes ruin it for me.
