NOTD: OPI Amethyst Twist

OPI Amethyst Twist

This shade is from the Ulta Tiny Tinsels set from Holiday 2009. Isn't that gorgeous?

I'm laughing about the tiny bottle in my hand, thinking about the Cafe Disco episode of The Office where Michael is serving espresso in those tiny cups and saying "Oh, look at my giant hand and this regular-sized coffee cup...." Too funny!

NOTD: OPI Holiday Glow

OPI Holiday Glow

These were painted almost two days ago, so I'm getting some tip wear, but I love this color! I did have some trouble with cleanup and the glitter didn't seem to want to come up with my normal cleanup brush, but I worked for a bit and made it happen.

Such a great shimmery polish!

NOTD: OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Suede

OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Suede

Another home run! I am over the moon for the suedes. Much more matte in person, yet it still has a sheen and a gorgeous shimmer.

Hopefully I'll get 4+ days of wear like I did with the OPI LPAD Suede.

NOTD: Avon Golden Twilight

Avon Golden Twilight

First, let me apologize for the slight tip wear and lack of bottle in the pic. I painted these on Wednesday night, and now it's Friday morning and I just found the time to take a pic, and I don't have the bottle with me.

The picture really doesn't do the polish justice- this is a gorgeous black base with a fabulous golden shimmer that looks beautiful in sunlight. Application was great and I swear by the time I got done applying my SV, the first finger I painted was completely dry, undentable.

The Edge of Sanity is running a really cool series right now- they have 8 testers who have blind-tested 12 topcoats and rated them on various attributes.

The are posting the results one day at a time. So cool! So far Poshe rated the worst, which was a surprise to me. Although I prefer Seche Vite, I don't "hate" Poshe.

NOTD: OPI Suede Lincoln Park After Dark

OPI Suede Lincoln Park After Dark

This polish is just dreamy. It applied much better than my experience with mattes, and it look lit from within. Plus I've done quite a bit of housework and I even painted these last night before bed, and they still look great. No chipping yet, which is a problem with mattes.

I think these suedes might be the best of both worlds. But this looks nothing like the original LPAD! I think they just should have come up with a new name.

NOTD: Sephora by OPI Absinthe Makes the Heart

Sephora by OPI Absinthe Makes the Heart

Woo woo- this is gorgeous! This is an inside pic because I totally missed the sun today, but this is a pretty good representation. It's a smoky dark gray with green and iridescent glitter that is totally unique for me.

I purchased it from Sephora, where it retails for $9.

NOTD: OPI Merry Midnight

NOTD: OPI Merry Midnight

There were a few of the new OPI holiday shades I was excited about, and this was one. How pretty is this? There was no sun the day I took this pic, so this is an inside shot, which makes the flakies hard to see, but trust me, they are there!

This is just gorgeous and if you love purples, you NEED this!
