Share - First Look at Mariah Carey by OPI Collection

Here is a preview of the upcoming Mariah Carey collection that OPI will debut in January 2013.

There will be 8 colours and they are divided into 2 categories: studio and stage shades. The stage shades feature the new Liquid Sand polishes which are textured with a matte finish and sparkle.

Studio Shades:
1)   A Butterfly Moment (This sophisticated and frosty tan nude has us all a-flutter)
2)   Sprung (Fall hopelessly in love with this shimmery copper)
3)   Pink Yet Lavender (This pink glitter with lavender shimmer has superstar shine!)
4)   Anti-bleak (This deep, creamy purple will lift your spirits)

Stage Shades:
1)   Stay the Night (Make it last in this matte black with red glints)
2)   Get Your Number (Wearing this matte blue with sparkles is a great call)
3)   Can’t Let Go (Hold onto this matte purple with dazzling sparkle)
4)   The Impossible (This matte fuchsia with star confetti will never give up)

Here's a more realistic view of the polishes:

I saw OPI posting a picture of their new and upcoming spring collection and just had to share it with you guys! So here are the colours for the upcoming OPI collection Euro Centrale

There are also websites here and here that have close-ups of the bottles individually.

I am so so so excited for this collection that is said to come out February 2013! Some I feel may be dupes for older OPI polishes, but we'll just have to find out. Which colours are you most excited about?

Haul - OPI Skyfall Collection!!

 So I went outlet shopping last week and came across a beauty supply store. I went in thinking I might try to find some OPI or China Glaze polishes that I have been searching for but to my delight I found the new OPI Skyfall collection!!! I was so excited I swear I stood in front of the display for a full 2 minutes not moving just trying to decide which ones to get! In the end I went with Tomorrow Never Dies, Goldeneye (a must have!) and On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

The nice lady at the store even put my polishes in a box!

I am so very excited to have these! Can't wait to get more from the collection. Swatches of these will come soon!

Week 3 - Animal Print

Hello everyone, it has been a veerrrry long time since the last time I posted a blog. I just recently moved so I haven't had the chance to post anything. Sad part is I was forced to select a small number of polishes to bring with me on this move, since I wasn't able to bring all 80 some odd bottles of polish with me when I only had 2 luggages to pack my life into. It was very heartbreaking to leave my stash, but looking on the bright side of things this only means I get to acquire new colours while I'm away from home! Anyway, enough chit chat here is the week three animal print pattern.

The first two pictures were taken with natural light (it was sunny that day, yay~)

This picture was taken with natural and artificial light combined. So basically I had the light on in my room but took the picture close to my window.

Artificial light (warm, aka. yellow light instead of the blinding energy saving white light though being green is awesome!).
For this nail art I used OPI Deutsch you want me baby? as the base for the whole nail. Then OPI Bring on the bling for the centre of the leopard pattern. Lastly, I used OPI Royal rajah ruby to line the outsides of the leopard spots. And of course as always to finish off I used Seche vite to give this design the delectable gloss all manicures deserve. Hope you enjoyed the post!
