Nfu Oh - 61

Hey Guys

So starting today I'm going to be posting the rest of the Nfu Oh Holos
This is the silver out of the group. Just as gorgeous as the rest. If I had to give this polish a real name.... hmmm I don't know. Mount Olympus?? I know the HITS Holos all have Greek god names (which makes me lust hardcore over them) but whatever

This is

Nfu Oh 61
(with Aquabase)

Hey guys,

Just a quick post today.

This manicure came after the monochrome dots manicure. I got a bit obsessed with black and white for a few days, I thought oh heck why not. DOMINOES.

For this I used

Wet & Wild Fantasy Makers - Black Pearl
Essie - Blanc
Orly Instant Artist - Crisp White

Blue Racing Stripes

Hey ladies,

So go figure, the weather today was pretty much PERFECT.
and I finally managed to make it to David's Tea which is a store that Chelsea has been raving about forever. Wound up splurging a tad, apparently I expect myself to magically become an avid Tea drinker after 23 years of not liking tea.

So I was playing with one of my favourite blue polishes and decided to try something.

This is
OPI Swimsuit... Nailed It
with Orly Instant Artist - Blue J

Japanese Rose Garden Graffiti'd

Hey guys,

So I had a freakin miserable day. First off I was slated to help with inventory at work. Which makes me long for the days of having to do inventory when I worked at Pookey's. At least inventory was inside.
Well for those of you who don't live in my area (You know who you are) yesterday mother nature decided to make it snow. Cold, wet, rainy snow.
So basically I spent the whole morning freezing.
Then the whole afternoon in front of Kathryn's space heater cranked on high trying to dry out my jeans and boots.

Anyways I'm done whining.

So today I have ANOTHER one of Nicole's polishes to show you

This is OPI Japanese Rose Garden

It's a really pretty frosty rose colour.
You can tell this is an older bottle because the name is in black on the bottle.
For the past several years all OPI's polishes have been Big 3 Free and you can tell from the polish names printed in green,

To spice this up a tad I put some NYX Graffiti on my ring & pinky fingers

Total Barbie manicure :)

Nfu Oh - 65

Hey guys,

Okay so I know I said next week but you should all know by now that I have no self control

This is the first of the Nfu Oh Holos I have to show you

This is 65. I wish these polishes had amazing names. I probably would have called this one something having to do with Mermaids. It reminds me of what I imagine a mermaid's tail would look like.

Anyways so I have a couple bottle shots because the Nfu Oh bottle is a work of art.

And on to the polish!!!

Also side note.
I'm currently fundraising for the Canadian Heart & Stroke foundation.
If you would like to donate please e-mail me at for more details.

OPI DS Opulence

Hey guys,

So good news,
Last night I swatched all of my Nfu Oh Holos so those will be coming your way shortly. I managed to get through a crop & whittle down all the pictures I had taken. However I only got halfway through watermarking everything. I've told you guys how much I hate watermarking right?

Also i got news from Miss Nicole who is in Vegas right now that she had picked me up a new polish. I'm not sure of the details but it's one of those layered polishes that you aren't supposed to shake.... We'll see how that goes. She ALSO told me that everytime she sees an awesome polish she's going to buy it for me. Yes this is one of the many reasons we all love Nicole. Because of this however I've been instructed to make a current and up-to-date list of everything I have.... yeesh. Oh well. it's all in the name of polish.

Moving on...

guess who got a new OPI DS????
Actually I got a couple but this is the first of 3 I have to show you.

This is OPI DS Opulence.

It's a pink chamagne type colour. Totally gorgeous.
I know this colour is right up Chelsea's alley as well.
The finish of this reminds is similar to DS Extravagance. Tons of tiny sparkles and goes on smooth.

Monochrome Dots

Hey guys

So exciting news. My Nfu Oh Holos came in the mail today so I'll probably spend most of the week rocking those babies, so expect to see them next week, along with a review of the Nfu Oh Aqua Base. Is it worth it? Does it make a difference? We're going to see. I changed my entire order so I could get it so lets see if it was worth it.

Anyways I love this manicure.
this was me again playing with my dotter tool and this was probably the first time I got super excited about the results

This is just

Wet & Wild Fantasy Makers - Black Pearl
Essie - Blanc

I'm aware I need a new black polish that isn't in a tombstone bottle but this one works really well and does the trick so until it runs out tombstone bottle it is.

OPI In The Spotlight Pink

Hey guys,

So yesterday when I was doing my nails this colour all I could say to myself was:
"I hate sheer colours, no more sheer colours for me! Nope."
Then today what did I find myself lusting after? Yup you guessed it OPI's new sheer line New York Ballet.
I'm loving the sheer white & the sheer beige. Oh and the glitter top coat obvs
Yeah clearly I'm a whack job. 

Let me tell you why I don't really like sheer polishes.
1. They don't really fit my style or personality, I'm more of a bolder pigment girl. Although every once in a while I'm cool with mixing it up with a sheer, you know to keep people on their toes and all.
2. My nails sometimes can be a little peely so when I wear darker colours they get under the peely part sometimes and aside from buffing the peelies off which I don't like to do because it generally makes my nails weaker there isn't much I can do about it other than just cover it up. Which obviously doesn't exactly work with a sheer.

Anyways that being said here from the Femme De Cirque collection is

OPI - In The Spotlight Pink
OPI - I Juggle... Men 
on the ring finger and tips

First a note. When all is said and done I really like the finish of this polish, it's a jelly! Apparently I totally dig jellies. I didn't know this, did you?
