NOTD - OPI I Snow You Love Me over black and white.
I Snow You Love Me is a large holographic circle glitter in a clear, thick base. Brushing it on isn’t ideal; it’s best to grab and place each glitter piece with a dotting tool (or toothpick).
The base polishes are Finger Paints Black Expressionism and Paper Mache.
I feel bad even posting these because my cuticles are such a ragged mess. The more stressed I get, the worse they look.
But recently I went to work a couple of times with bare nails and had a terrible shift, so now I’m superstitious and trying to do over the top nails to avoid the jinx.
China Glaze - Skyscraper
I love this polish. It’s one of 2 I have a backup of, before I decided that buying backups is ridiculous. :) The other one is China Glaze Atlantis.
My cuticles are in hellish shape right now. So please excuse that.
OPI Green on the Runway. This is from the Coca Cola collection. It’s supposed to represent Sprite. I don’t know about that, but I love this color.
It has a slight duochrome that flashes brown, although I wasn’t able to get a very good shot of that.
Formula was good, this is 2 coats.
Rainbow Gradient with Fingerpaints Poolside Paradise collection
Main color is Be My Baby; accent nail features Be My Baby, Aloha Lei (orange), Hula Aruba (yellow), Margarita Mambo (green), Surf’s Up (blue) and Wild Bikini (purple).
These have a glassfleck finish and I could not resist buying the whole collection. I’ve worn Wild Bikini as a full manicure and Margarita Mambo as accent nails (over a green polish) and I am really glad I got the whole set.
Fingerpaints Gorgeous Graffiti
Fuchsia with a blue shimmer. Dries matte. I love this color! I think I’m going to do a pedicure with it. I haven’t had the same mani/pedi color since about 3 years ago!
In other news, my cuticles are ragged. I need to step up my moisturizing game or something.
Dance Legend - Boo
Another Russian multichrome polish. This set is named after characters from Monsters, Inc. I don’t usually watch cartoon movies but I was inspired to watch this one and it was pretty cute.
The polish has a great formula - this is 2 coats, and on the 3rd day of wear. It shifts from red-bronze to orange-bronze to gold to green. All these pics are in my shower, which is the best place for photographing multichromes, for some reason. I thought the water droplets made the polish look even cooler.
Of all the brands of multichromes I have, the Dance Legends are by far the most “shifty.”
Dance Legend Roz
Dance Legend is a Russian brand. I bought 5 of their polishes through a US-based online reseller called Llarowe. Supposedly Dance Legend has the most shifty duochromes. I’d agree.
Roz is part of the Chameleon collection - all 6 polishes are named for characters from Monsters, Inc. I hadn’t seen the movie but I actually watched it yesterday just for fun. It was pretty cute. I don’t usually like cartoons because I have a longstanding hatred of Disney movies (they are too sad)… but it was good.
In most lighting, the center of the nail looks maroon, fading to a gold-green at the edges. Moving hands around can get the whole nail to turn one color, or have a gradation like seen in the photo. I am in love with this polish. I’ve been wearing it for 4 days and it hasn’t chipped yet so I can’t bear to take it off.
China Glaze Shore Enuff
I am really on a green kick lately. Taken while sitting in traffic.
I chipped a couple of nails doing some cleaning yesterday. So I added some glitter (Sally Hansen Bling-tastic) to the tips of my China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle. And I painted a couple of nails with China Glaze Highlight of My Summer (mint green).
i hadn’t bought any polish in a long time, but the past couple of weeks I bought a lot, so now I have a bunch in my “untried” box. Motivation to do my nails more often!
