OPI - Mod About You

This was one of the colors that caught my eye when looking through the polishes at Boston Store. OPI Mod About you is from the Brights Collection of 2006. It's a very bright baby pink that covers well in two coats but I did my manicure with three coats.

 I wore this more recently. Here is a little bit different photo.

I choose it because I was looking for a baby pink that gave good coverage but I must say that I also bought it because of the name. The name just reminds me of the 90s sitcom Mad About You. I just love watching the show and I love their dog Murray!

OPI - Absolutely Alice

I've had this polish for like two weeks but I've been avoiding it a bit because I hate removing glitter polish. But it's such a pretty blue color that eventually I gave in.

So here is OPI's Absolutely Alice...

I used three coats and needed to use two coats of top coat so that the grit would go away a bit. It's a really pretty blue glitter with a surprise of gold glitter mixed in with it. I have a close up too which you can see the gold a bit better.

I had to redo two nails because my pinky completely peeled off in one piece and my thumb peeled halfway. It's the Orly Bonder which works perfectly with all my other polishes but fails to be compatible with Absolutely Alice.

If you take a acetone soaked cotton ball and just hold it to your nail for a few minutes the polish will just dissolve off with out having t work to hard at it.

Edit: CND Sticky is a not a good option for this polish as a base coat either.

L'Oréal Paris - Grenat Précieux

Woot! My first blog post about nail polish. I've been taking pictures of my nails for the last month and putting them up on flickr because it's just easier. But I want to explore the uses of the internet more and I've decided to also blog along with the photo taking I'm doing on Flickr.

So for the readers that will probably only be me for a long while.... so....

L'Oréal Paris - Grenat Précieux

It's kind of a dark purple with a red tone with pretty small sized glitter. I bought it while I was in Switzerland. It's actually from their French line at least that is the website I found it on while looking for the color.

I used three coats. I found the formula really gooey. I spent a lot more money on this than I usually do for polish. I think I payed about $14.
