Essie Fall in Line Swatches & Review

Essie Fall in Line Swatches & ReviewEssie Fall in Line from the Fall 2014 Collection is a dusty, tranquil green with a few drops of grey mixed in.

Depending on the settings of the screen you’re viewing this on, it may look blue, but, in person, it definitely leans more on the green side than the blue.

I just couldn’t get enough of it, and I wore it for several days straight. And when I removed it, I considered wearing it for a consecutive manicure! *Gasp* That pretty much never happens.

But then I looked over at the other nail polishes smiling up at me with hopeful eyes. How could I neglect them? ;)

OPI Trend on Ten & Sheer to the Top! Holiday Gift Sets Press Release

OPI Sheer to the Top & OPI Trend on Ten Gift SetIn the past few days, I’ve been sharing lots of press releases about exciting OPI holiday nail polishes here, here, here, and here!

And, since I still have more to show you, I’m keeping the blog-posting train going choo-choo-chooing with this one! :)

There are two more OPI holiday gift sets for 2014:

  • OPI Trend on Ten Gift Set
  • OPI Sheer to the Top! Gift Set

As the name would suggest, OPI Trend on Ten features their top nail-polish shades. They come in adorable mini bottles, which are excellent for collectors and those who want to try a variety of colours without having to commit to the full-size bottles.

Since I have small feet (and also small toenails), I especially love using the OPI mini nail polishes for pedicures. The little brush is ideal!

OPI Sheer to the Top! contains three full-size bottles including a glossy top coat, matte top coat, and glitter polish.

See the rest of this post for the full details!

OPI Coca-Cola Holiday Gift Set (OPI This Bear’s Got Flair) Press Release

OPI Coca-Cola Holiday Gift SetYou may remember that recently, I posted a photo of the OPI Coca-Cola Holiday Gift Set on Instagram!

It features an adorable plush bear ornament and a full-size bottle of the glittertastic OPI Bearest of Them All.

The red and white glitter nail polish has some larger heart sequins, which is such a cute touch. Plus because the glitter is suspended in a clear base, you have lots of options for layering over other colours.

This would make a wonderful stocking stuffer for the nailphile on your Christmas list who’s also a fan of Coca-Cola and collectibles.

(P.S. Did you see yesterday’s blog post that I sneaked in during the evening? It includes the 5 new OPI Holiday Gift Sets that are hitting stores this month!)

OPI Mod About You Swatches & Review (OPI Pink of Hearts 2014)

OPI Mod About You Swatches & ReviewBreast Cancer Awareness Month is just a wink away, so I’m getting a head-start by showcasing OPI Mod About You!

This pale, creamy pink isn’t a new shade, but it’s part of the OPI Pink of Hearts 2014 duo, which is a special Breast Cancer Awareness set that’s available until the end of October.

Although I’m not the biggest pink fan (probably because when I was a little girl, pink was my favourite, and it was nearly the only colour I ever wore), I try to wear more pinks around this time of year (as well as in February).

Although pink is a traditional nail-polish colour for most people, for me, it’s like a nostalgic novelty. :)

OPI Don’t Speak Pure 18K Gold Top Coat Press Release

OPI Don't Speak Pure 18K Gold Top CoatOn Friday night, I sneaked in a blog post about the OPI Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection with 18 new nail-polish shades, which are coming out in October. (If you haven’t already checked it out, you should – there are plenty of exciting colours!)

Today, I have some more cool nail news for you!

The OPI Don’t Speak Pure 18K Gold Top Coat, again in collaboration with Gwen Stefani, will also be hitting stores in October.

It’s a full-size bottle, and, yes, it contains real gold, which is why it will retail for $37.50 CAD.

This is decadent, for sure, with gold leaf flakes and iridescent glitter. It’ll add the extra bling needed to ramp up a plain manicure and transform it into one that gets the party started!

If you know a fellow nailphile, this would make a great Christmas (or anytime) present because it’s highly collectible and comes in a fancy box.
