Starting with my pointer finger, I used, Time for a Napa, Excuse Me, Big Sur!, Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia and Feeling Frisco.  In case you are curious, I wore Excuse Me, Big Sur! on my thumb.

New OPI California Dreaming Collection for Summer 2017


Hiya Dolls!

I have the gorgeous new OPI California Dreaming Collection for Summer 2017 to share with you!  There are 12 new shades, 'including rich merlot and punchy pink, orange and coral hues, along with soft warm shades of rose, pink, peach and nude', according to OPI.

Time for a Napa is a bright, peachy-coral cream.  I love love love this shade!  Application was a dream, especially for a coral!  Two easy coats, no streakiness!

Malibu Pier Pressure is a sweet cotton candy pink.  This one is super bright in real life, it has a neon vibe to it.  The formula was pretty thick, but it leveled out nicely.  Two coats.

GPS I Love You is a deep, hot pink cream.  This one is perfection, super saturated.  Two coats.

Santa Monica Beach Peach is a hot punchy orange with a crelly finish.  I did two coats and could still see VNL, a third coat would probably take care of that.

Me, Myselfie and I is a bright coral cream.  This one has a perfect formula, and that's saying a lot for a coral!  Two perfect coats.

Feeling Frisco is a light nude that pretty much matched my exact skin tone.  Application was easy, two smooth coats.

Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia is a lovely dusty peach cream.  I was surprised at how much I loved this one.  I don't always love peach shades on me, but that dusty tone in there made me fall in love with it!  Two coats.

Excuse Me, Big Sur! is a lovely dusty rose with a perfect formula.  This one was so saturated, I almost got away with one coat!  It is a little thick, but it levels out nicely.

This is Not Whine Country is a bright purple merlot.  This one is a bit sheer, it ends up with a crelly finish.  Two coats.

To the Mouse House We Go! is a Minnie Mouse red with a jelly finish.  The formula was fine, two easy coats. Just watch your cuticles, it will stain!

Don't Take Yosemite for Granite is a slate grey with lovely silver shimmer.  This was an unexpected favorite of mine.  Great formula, two easy coats.

Sweet Carmel Sunday is a fabulous coppery, rose-gold.  You all know that I love shades like this now!  I can't get enough of metallics!  Two coats.

There we have it my lovelies!  The 12 new polishes of the California Dreaming Collection for Summer 2017.  Which one is your fave?

The California Dreaming Collection is available now in select salons, professional beauty outlets and prestige stores.  Check out OPI's website for more details.

Have a great May long weekend my lovelies!

OPI Infinite Shine My Private Jet

Hiya Dolls!

I found OPI My Private Jet in the Infinite Shine Formula!  OPI  released the 'original' My Private Jet in the Infinite Shine Formula a few months ago, so I was so happy to find it at Chatters Salon.  I have wanted to original formula for years now, I'm so happy to add it to my collection.

The two My Private Jet formulas that I own are pretty different from each other.  This is the fourth time that OPI has released My Private Jet.  I don't own the first or second release, only the third and now the fourth.  The third formula is a chocolate brown with holo flakies.  The fourth Infinite Shine formula is a lighter more greyish-purplish brown than the third formula and it has little holo flakies and also is also a linear holo.  The linear holo didn't show up under my lights, but I'm hoping it will be noticeable in direct sunlight!

If you want to see my post on the third version of My Private Jet, click here.

Do you have any versions of My Private Jet?

Have a great day lovelies!

Glam Polish Dance With Dragons Swatches and Review


Hey Dolls!

Man, it feels so good to be back on here with a post!  I had a semi truck drive past my house and tear down my cable wire, so I've been without internet, phone and cable for two weeks now!  I feel in touch with the real world again, ha!  I've been dying to show you the new Glam Polish Collection: Dance With Dragons!  I have five of the ten polishes to share with you and these are available now on their website Glam Polish.

These are the absolute best color shifting (polychromatic) polishes that I've ever had the pleasure to wear!  The shift is unbelievable.  Each polish has holo flakies and holo micro-glitter, I mean... does it get any better than that?  Every formula was fantastic, two easy coats.  I topped each polish with two coats of topcoat, as the micro-glitters are a bit bumpy.

The Lion and the Rose has a stunning purple-magenta to gold to green shift.  Perfect formula, two easy coats and topcoat. This beauty is my fave of the Collection.

This is the same polish in daylight, look at that beautiful green shift!

The Mountain and the Viper as an aqua-green to royal to blue shift.  You can see the color shift really well on the sides of my nails in this picture.

Rains of Castmere has a gorgeous deep purple to blue to a slight goldy-pink shift.  I wore this one for 5 days and couldn't stop staring at them!

 Kissed by Fire has a burgundy to bronze shift that is absolutely stunning!  This was another fave of my mine from this collection.  This one was so pigmented that you can get away with one coat!

This photo was taken in natural lighting and you can see the beautiful burgundy to bronze shift.

The Wars to Come is a little different than the other four.  This one is a bit more sheer and has tons and tons of flakies in it!  I needed three thin coats to get perfect opacity.  It has a really pretty teal to purple shift.

You can purchase Glam Polish on their website here, and their polishes are $12.00 each.  This collection is Limited Edition.

Which one of these is your favorite?

Have a great day lovelies!
