OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender

From the OPI Hong Kong Collection, Lucky Lucky Lavender is a beautiful pink creme with a touch of lavender...this was not one of the colors I originally bought when this collection  first hit the scene back in the Spring. However, my BFF had it on one day and it looked so gorgeous on her brown skin, I just had to have it! The color really just pops and in certain light it really does look like a soft lavender...gorgeous! Definitely my new fav from the Hong Kong Collection...

OPI Rumple's Wiggin

The most gorgeous Lilac cream! I ADORE anything lilac and I don't care if I have a gazillion lilac polishes that are close in color, I will buy almost anything that is lilac. This shade is so gorgeous, it reminds me of China Glaze 'Light As Air'...BEAUTIFUL!! Typical OPI creme formula this pretty baby was opaque in two coats...


OPI 'Who the Shrek are You'

This has to be my fav from OPI's Shrek Collection, which was released this past spring. I adore greens and I've had my eye on this baby during my no buy. It was so hard to stay strong when I saw this lovely shade of green...

Who the Shrek Are You

Typical OPI creme formula, this was opaque in two coats. Such a gorgeous shade of lime green with a touch of brown.  OPI really nailed this color, it really is the color of Shrek! A color I would have never imagined would look good on my nails! LOL! But I'm absolutely in L-O-V-E!! I've been wearing it for the last two weeks (off and on of course).

Essie Resort Collection

I know I am late on this collection but it was released during my self-imposed 'no-buy'. But I had my eye on this collection since and I knew I wanted all the colors. So I just bought the mini box set last week and had a chance to swatch them this weekend...I'm so in love with ALL the colors! I feel as though Essie should have went with this collection as their featured summer collection. Maybe they could have just expanded on the Resort Theme and added two more colors. The other summer collection is so random and none of the colors really stand out, I wasn't impressed with it. But I was very impressed with this collection...I also find that I am starting to have a love/hate relationship with Essie's formula. Sometimes it can be a bit sheer and it takes three to four coats to reach the opaqueness that I like. However, this collection surprised me as all four colors were opaque in two coats and VERY pigmented!

Turquoise & Caicos

Playa del Platinum

This is actually my fav of the collection, sometimes it's the simplest colors that take my breath away. I'm having a love affair with taupes and 'greiges', as you may already know from my many posts on the greige trend, LOL...Love it!
