OPI and Revlon Nails

I got this OPI "Who are you wearing?" polish a couple months ago in the clearance section at ULTA. It caught my attention because it looked like a shimmery midnight purple color and I loved the shiny purple flecks in the bottle. I've been a little hesistant to hop on the "black nails" trend, so I thought I'd give this a try as it seemed to be a little less harsh than flat black.

I'd be lying if I said I was 100% happy with it, only because it didn't look like the color in the bottle. I'm not sure if you can see in the photo, but it came out a very, very dark indigo blue. Indoors it looks almost black, deep navy, while in the sunlight, you can still see the purple flecks. I wish you could see the purple more often and I also wish it had a redder undertone!

Still, it did make a nice rockstar blackish shade that I would be able to wear casually. I certainly like it better than the purported "spring trends" like orange and gunmetal (yuck to both!).

I also recently had been eyeing Revlon's "Strawberry Electric" in hopes that it would be a good dupe for OPI's "It's all greek to me" so when I got the chance, I picked it up. Again, it's not quite what I'd hoped for but I do love the color nonetheless. This color is a sexy hot-hot pink with a beautiful pink shimmer. "It's all greek to me," which has the same hot pink tone but red shimmer, I will have to buy the next time I can. These hot pinks are both not for the timid, but they are perfect for spring and summer toes. :)

Here are my fingers and toes from last week:


Gotta love shooting stars and hearts!

Anyway, let me know what you think of these colors and what nailpolish are YOU wearing right now?

  4. I am too shocked by your awesome looking toenails!! You would have to do a toe nail blog lol

    I am currently wearing colors from E.L.F. Their polish are pretty good and cheap. I got the black even but I haven't braved it up enough to wear it in public lol It's too flat and blah but with the right outfit, it shouldn't be too bad!

  5. tiffany: I got the nail art shapes from a kit ordered from http://www.dealextreme.com/ :)

    ahleessa: I use a toothpick and use a drop of clear topcoat to pick up the piece. Then, I apply it to the nail and go over the whole nail with the clear topcoat.
