NOTW: OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam!

My salon finally got OPI's Holland collection, and I couldn't resist picking up at least 1 polish. I picked up I Don't Give A Rotterdam! because the name is probably my favorite (next to Kinky in helsinki), and the color was pretty.

This is 2 coats of IDGAR! over basecoat, no top coat. IDGAR! is a slate blue/grey with silver glitter. So pretty. But I couldn't leave it just like that, especially since I also bought a bottle of Essie Matte About You.

*Sigh* I LOVE mattifying glitter/shimmer polishes. Please forgive the dent, my cat decided to play manicurist ;)

NOTW: Sally Hansen DVD

You know that cold that's going around? Yeah, I got it...of course. Today, my nose finally stopped running long enough for me to do my nails. Being sick = sparkly mani!!

This is 2 coats of Sally Hansen DVD over 2 coats of OPI Russian Navy Matte, topped with Seche Vite. This has been in my un-tried box forever. It looked so pretty in the bottle, I was worried it wouldn't look as good on my nails. Boy, was I wrong. It's an absolutely gorgeous glass fleck that shifts between blue and purple. *sigh*

In other news, did anyone see Adele's Louboutin mani for the Grammy's? I'm in love. I can't wait until my nails are long enough to attempt.

NOTW: Zoya Isla

For a while now, I've been on the hunt for a good red polish. I will admit that I'm kindof picky about my reds (I prefer darker reds, and am not a huge fan of cremes), but I think I finally found my favorite red!

This is 2 coats of Zoya Isla topped with Seche Vite (please to be ignoring the chips). It is a gorgeous blackened red shimmer, a bit darker than it looks in the picture (closer to the bottle color). I'm in love!!!! I think I'm going to have to pick up a backup bottle next time I'm at the salon.

Go Big Blue!!!!!

Anyone else excited for the big game tonight?! I'm so excited that my Giants made it to the big game. I can't wait to see my boys play tonight! So, in their honor, here's my Big Blue Mani.

I started out with 2 coats of Zoya Phoebe (ring finger) and OPI Russian Navy Matte (all other nails). Then, I did 1 coat of Zoya Maisie, a gorgeous blue/green flakie, and topped with Seche Vite. So pretty...and blue! lol

Now I just need to finish making food, and I'm all ready for the big game. I better see some salsa dancing tonight!!
