Katy Perry

Spring is in the air and all of a sudden I felt like posting again. But it’ll be a short one with only bottle pics of the OPI Katy Perry collection. Which you all by now seen a million times I guess. But I don’t care! ,*

OPI The One That Got Away & Not Like The Movies

OPI Teenage Dream & Last Friday Night

OPI Burlesque swatches part 2

Here’s the rest of the collection!

Show It And Glow It!

Bring On The Bling

Extra-Va-Vaganza!

Sparkle-icious

Simmer & Shimmer

Glow Up Already!

I hope you can imagine how insanely sparkly these are. I used 3 coats on all the swatches.

I think Burlesque is an awesome Christmas collection, a lot of them feels really Christmas-y and makes you think of sparkly decorated Christmas trees. I love it. Although they might not all suit to wear to work, but who cares? One thing I like about these is that they all look fantastic in indoor lightning, which is something I appreciate.

OPI Burlesque collection will be available in Sweden from November (I think) at Kicks and Åhléns, among others. They cost 150 SEK. I think everyone needs at least one of the glitters for the new years eve-party!

OPI Burlesque swatches part 1

I am so happy about these! When the weather get gloomy, I don’t wanna paint my nails in an equally gloomy color. I want something that glows, and cheer me up. These certainly does! And around Christmas they will be totally awesome.

Ali’s Big Break
A red glitter, glass fleck style. It covers in 2 coats, but I added a third for depth. If you look closely, there is pink and gold flecks in it too, but it’s not that prominent on the nail.

Rising Star
A deep and warm gold microglitter. It’s just too sparkly to be a shimmer, specially in indoor lightning! Indoors ju can also see that there is a small amount of green microglitter in it.

Take The Stage
An intense copper microglitter. It doesn’t really suit my skin tone, but I hope you can see past that. I think it will look fantastic on the right person.

The Show Must Go On
This one is interesting. It’s a darker pink, and there is some duochrome action going on. When you look at it directly, at almost looks cool toned. But then, at some angles, the gold microglitter shows up and makes it a warmer color.

Let Me Entertain You
Ooh, I love this one, but I’m a sucker for these fuchsia/magenta colored polishes. This has glass fleck glitter, in the bottle it shows some duochrome, but it isn’t visible on the nail.

Tease-y Does It
A very dusty dark plum with glass fleck glitter. This one also look duochrome-ish in the bottle, but on the nail only copper and pink glitter shows.

I thought all of these had a good formula and were easy to work with. Most only needed 2 coats, but I did 3. I have to say, removal was not so fun. Specially rising star, I had glitter all over my hands! But with a little extra remover and a good hand wash, you get glitter free.

So, what do you think? Do they live up to your expectations?

Later today, I hope I will have a pretty awesome post for you… .DD Not swiss, but still OPI related… ,D

Extravagance

OPI DS Extravagance. Well this is a nice purple. Reminds me of color clubs wild at heart, but it’s more red toned, and not a holo. Although it does have holographic/prismatic glitter. Really pretty! I need to get more DS polishes.

Catch me in your net

My notd: OPI Catch me in your net from the summer flutter collection. This is 3 coats with top coat. Yes, there is VNL but it’s not that obvious IRL. No sun today .(

with flash:

It’s not really color accurate, it’s greener. I like this one, it’s pretty ^__^

Diva of Geneva in sunlight

Had a little sun today, so I took some photos of my OPI diva of geneva mani, just for reference.

This color looks so different depending on what kind of light source you have!

And now for something completely different; aaww just look at this little cutie pie gremlin! ^___^

OPI Swiss

Today, Feline and I were at the press preview of OPI Swiss collection. I was scared to death. I’m not a peoples person, and I really felt that I didn’t belong. Heh. I did however enjoy it, new experiences are fun. The collection looked quite interesting, and when I got my manicure I had a hard time choosing which color I wanted. I went for Diva of Geneva because it was a color I don’t think I normally would choose. I don’t regret it because it is beautiful. A berry/purple/goldish shimmer, maybe a hint of duochrome?

Unfortunately it’s very cloudy today so I had to use my flash.

Crappy pic, I know.

And an even crappier pic (without flash), but this one is pretty color accurate. I hope I will have sunshine soon so I can show some decent photos of this.

reserve(d)

todays notd: OPI ds reserve. two coats + top coat.

OPI - DS Reserve

Yesterdays notd: Chinga Glaze Rodeo Fanatic. Well, don’t really know if I can call it a notd, because I only did one hand, heh. Just didn’t feel like doing the other for some reason.

China Glaze - Rodeo Fanatic

I took a kind of cool picture of myself yesterday, I like the mirror effect. For therapeutic reasons, I will show it to you. Maybe I’ll tell you about my self image some day, but I’ll leave it for now.

Don’t have much more to say. Still not very chatty I guess. Been feeling a little bit down, or, tired maybe. But tomorrow I will actually do something outside of my apartment, maybe it’ll cheer me up a bit.
