OPI The Great and Powerful Oz Collection Nail Polish WIN!

Posted on May 26, 2013

How excited was I to find out I’d won the entire OPI Oz collection of nail polishes from HQ Hair! Yippeee!! I felt a bit special being randomly picked by Rafflecopter from 8643 entries!

I was going to do a blog post on the polishes but my previous Lime Crime nail polish has stained my nails, and the nude pink base coloures in the OPI collection are very sheer and I’ve tried but they won’t cover the green staining of some of my nails.

So instead I thought I’d try out a couple more Lime Crime colours with the OPI glitter topcoats. I know these are very opaque so there will be no problem covering my discoloured nails.

I’ve used Lime Crime ‘Milky Ways’ which is the nude colour, and ‘Lavindairy’ for the ring finger. I then tried a couple of the OPI glitter topcoats. ‘Which is Witch?’ is on the middle finger and ‘Lights of emerald City’ is on my thumb.

I just did a quick pattern in white on my index finger and thought I’d show off my new charm rings from H&M!

I found I had to put ‘Lights of Emerald City’ on really thickly to get the glitter out and move the shapes around with the brush for even coverage. I was in a bit of a rush as my little boy was demanding my attention so you can see below that the glitter has sunk into the Lime Crime polish underneath as I didn’t give it long enough to dry.

I love the holographic hexes in “Which is Witch?’ this polish was much easier to manipulate and get an even spread of glitter.

Overall I really like these two glitters! Have you tried out this collection? xx

NOTD! Lime Crime and Lush Lacquer

Posted on May 13, 2013

I haven’t painted my nails for ages, so thought it was about time I tried my Lime Crime polishes I bought a while ago. They are literally my perfect colours, neon pastels! I have a few of them but the ones I used today are ‘Pastelchio’ (green) and ‘Parfait Day’ (pink) I then thought I’d jazz up the green nails with Lush Lacquer’s ‘Clowning Around’. Unfortunately the vividness of the colours does not come out very well on my pictures, I’ve added one taken with the flash at the end which gives a better idea of the brightness.

The only thing I would say about the Lime Crime polishes is the consistency is pretty thick and not really ideal for working with, I’ve read this is due to the high pigmentation. I really love the colours though so I think this is a small price to pay!
