Manicure #12 – Epic Fail

4 May

First off, this was a color I have wanted to try, but it is full of epic fail. It is beautiful but did not last at all.

OPI My Private Jet:

The color is beautiful and the application was good on this color. I love that it looks brown. However, the following day I woke up and did my usual routine. I look down at my nails and chunks of color were missing! I didn’t do anything different! I used my usual base coat and top coat. Wth? So I’ll be going to Ulta sometime soon to return this. I’ll just exchange it for Lincoln Park After Dark. 


Current Manicure #4

13 Apr

I’m kind of on the fence on my current manicure:

This is OPI You Don’t Know Jacques! (The title contains an exclamation point)  It is a really pretty color but I am just unsure of it. It may grow on me. When I first received the bottle, it looked like a mocha/coffee color. On my nails it looks like a purple brown to sometmes a grey brown. I’m disappointed in the application because it took me 3 coats to get this saturation. The first coat was very streaky and left some “bald” spots in the middle of my nail. The second coat was able to dump some more color but the 3rd coat is really what evened out the color. I do have a similar color in my collection, Essie Mink Muffs, but I have yet to try it out. Maybe one day I can do a comparison post.

I’m still on the hunt for the Starry Temptress collection. I will be posting a haul post maybe later tonight or even tomorrow. My next big purchase will be nail wheels because I really need to swatch all my colors. I’m not sure if I am going to do it by color (reds, blues, purples, etc) or by brand. I also have to do some comparison swatches. Now I have to go do some math to see how many I need.
