O.P.I Glow up Already!

  I cannot wait for the Holidays now! "Glow up Already" consists of mostly Light Green glitter in a clear base with Red, Fuchsia and Blue glitter as accents. There is also green micro glitter throughout which ties it all together. I only needed two generous coats for full coverage. As always I used a nice coat of Seche Vite to seal it all together and give it extra sparkle. This is a beautiful, eye- catching shade, but (yes, there is a but), I wish the Green glitter was a more vibrant shade of Green as this one can look too Golden (for my tatste) in certain lighting.  Also, I finally figured out how to capture good Macro shots (Yay!) so I'll be doing that for the rest of the glitters for the week.

  "Simmer and Shimmer" is just AMAZING. In this polish we have mostly Light Blue glitter in a clear base with Red, Gold, Green and Fuschia glitter as accents and then there is also those micro blue sparkles to bring everything together to make your nails look like Blue shiny little shields. It was love at first brushstroke. For full coverage I only needed two coats and it was as you see in the pictures. To smooth it out and give it extra shine I added a coat of Seche Vite. If you loved the glitters in the Alice in Wonderland Collection then you need these in your collection!

P.S This color is not even close to being a dupe of Absolutely Alice. You can see the post for that polish here. :)

O.P.I Teas-y Does It. (Pic Heavy)

Yes it does, as a matter of fact this polish is doing all sorts of things for me...

  Ok, so I hate the names of pretty much every color in this collection. Mainly because they're either too long or just weird like this one. "Teas-y Doest It" Is a beautiful smoldering plum base with a golden and dark red flash throughout. The finish is just stunning and sophisticated as this is not as flashy as the rest of the colors in this collection. Application was easy, even and very opaque. I could have probably gotten away with one coat but my OCD self prefers two. It dried fast and fairly smooth, once a coat of Seche Vite added and it was total perfection. I am seriously in love with this color. Which is saying a lot, I don't normally rock vampy shades on my fingernails. "Teas-y Does It" is a clear exception to this rule as this color is really something special. This one is going under my new Epic Win tab :)!

O.P.I The Show Must Go On

  And this polish had to go on my nails the second I opened the little box it was shipped in!
I give you:

Golden Notes, No picture will do these justice.
  OMG!!! DO you see it?!! The Awesomeness! I mean do I have to say a whole lot about this? Ok here we go... Dark Pink jelly packed full of Pink/Gold duochrome glassflecks. I'm guessing glassfleck because it is was way too fine to be glitter. The finish to this is just like the finish to "Catch me in your Net" from O.P.I's Summer Flutter Collection. Metallic, smooth multicolored goodness! My nails look like they are wrapped in deep Pink/ Gold duochrome foil. Two coats was all it took to achieve full coverage. It dried very fast and surprisingly smooth, but with the addition of my usual coat of Seche Vite it really brought out the shimmer in the polish and smoothed it to perfection.
