Hello Lacquer Luvers! I have a very very special Pink Wednesday post for you all today! I have been waiting a while to share the news but am beyond excited to announce that I am going to bring a beautiful bundle of joy into the world in August!!! We are overjoyed by this news & I wanted to share it with you all, my luvs! =)
Gahhhh!! =D Okay, okay..now that I've got it out of my system, on to my Pink Wednesday manicure. Today's manicure features two polishes by O.P.I. I began today's mani with a base coat of Essie Grow Faster. Next I applied three coats of O.P.I.'s Kinky In Helsinki which is from their 2002 European Collection and was re-released in their 2009 Colorcopia Collection. I won this polish and 5 others in a giveaway O.P.I. had on their facebook page last year. This shade can best be described as a pearly fuchsia with blue duochrome. Formula was great and dry time was average.
Ooooh look at the blue duochromey-ness (yes, I just made this word up)! It kind of looks like it glows, doesn't it? Such a gorgeous shade!
Next I layered one coat of O.P.I. I Lily Love You over Kinky In Helsinki. I Lily Love You is from their Summer 2011 collection, Nice Stems! This baby is a sheer pink base full of fun! It has a variety of glitter and flakes in it: opalescent mylar flakes/shards, opal glitter, and iridescent square, circle, & hexagonal glitter. My only problem with this pretty was that the mylar flakes/shards were a bit difficult to apply. Some of them refused to lay flat but I managed to get them down using the end of a toothpick. I finished this manicure using Essie Good To Go top coat.
This combination looks like a pink party on my nails! And with good reason to celebrate with the announcement of my pregnancy, right? =) Do any of you have these polishes? What's your favorite layering combo using I Lily Love You? As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!
