I am going to give this blog another try, in an attempt to keep myself motivated to do something during my days. I don’t know if I still have any followers, but if I do, I hope that you will still be following me even though I might not just be posting about nail polish anymore. I am planning to write more personal posts, but of course, still some nail polish and also some other beauty stuff. I also plan on taking up my photography again, so maybe I’ll post some of that too.
You know, I’ll probably just post about whatever is on my mind that particular day, may it be nail polish, anxiety, lip stick, health or photos, only the future will tell :)
WHERE DOES THE TIME GO? I thought it was maybe two-three weeks since my last post, but I sure was wrong. I guess when you’re having fun (i.e. is too tired to do anything more advanced than breathing and maybe have something to eat) time flies by.
I have managed to aquire quite a lot of polishes though. I’ve thought about swatching but then my energy has just run out and it wasn’t until I got a mysterious package I finally gathered strenght to do something regarding polishes and such. The mysterious package (it was mysterious because I had no idea what it was or who sent it when I picked it up) revealed a golden box inside; containing OPI’s Skyfall collection! Did not expect. I will try to swatch it ASAP, but I hurt one of my cuticles and using nail polish remover hurts, but as soon as it heals I will start swathing like crazy (promise!).
I took some bottle pics of some of my newly(ish) aquired polishes, starting with the ones from Orly.
Ok, so, apparently the names of ‘German-icure by opi’ and ‘Every month is oktoberfest’ on my (and everyone else who was at the swedish press event) bottles had been switched, but I have edited my posts now so they show the correct names. Every month is oktoberfest is the super pretty one!
One of our outdoor cats brought home an injured baby bird to play with and to stop it’s pain I killed it. Then I felt so bad and got so much angst I had to do something, and one thing that usually makes me feel better is to cut my hair off. So I did. It’s nothing I do often nowadays, which results in my hair being longer than I’m used too, and then when I cut it off I always wonder why I didn’t do it earlier.
The second part of OPI’s Germany collection for fall. I like these colors as well, with the exception of ‘Scnapps out of it’ that’s just… ugly. Formula was great on these too.
This might not be the most exciting collection, but I think it serves it purpose well as a fall collection, and after my visit to Berlin I actually think they picked nice colors for being inspired by Germany. If you’re only going to get one color out of this collection, let it be ‘Every Month Is Oktoberfest’ because it is SO beautiful, doesn’t look like much in the bottle but once on the nail it’s really pretty.
First part of opi’s germany collection. At first, I wasn’t impressed by these colors, but they’ve grown on me. Now that I have tried half of them, and the swedish summer is so gloomy you easily get into an autumn mood, I realize these are great and beautiful colors for autumn. Oh, and the formula? Awesome. Most of these only needed two coats, but I did three and they all went on smoothly.
Opi Vintage Minne Mouse Collection. This collection makes much more sense than the spiderman. The formula is standard OPI (i.e. it’s good or great) and the colors are pretty. It can be a bit tricky to apply the heart shaped glitter but otherwise these are very easy to paint with. My favorite is I’m all ears, I don’t know why but I love these kind of colors!
