OPI - Not Like The Movies

GAH!! I have only one final left, tomorrow morning, and I am all done for a whole MONTH! I cannot put in to words how happy this makes me. I could squeal, I'm so happy! Next semester is going to be a bear, I'm taking extra classes so I can finally get to graduation.

I was definitely late to the party with this next pretty. With all the wishy-washy reviews I was reading I just wasn't that into it, so I skipped over it every time I saw it on the rack at Ulta. Finally, I gave in... with a coupon in hand. And after I put this on I was sad that I had waited so long.

These photos are three thin coats with a coat of American Classics Quick Dry tc that makes it look so glassy. I had heard the duochrome was very subtle with this shade but I thought it showed quite easily. It shows mostly green in the photos but whenever I looked down at my hands it looked purple-ish. I can't forget about the tiny little sparkles, they're so cute. Overall: Love it.


Here are the pretties!

I wore this mani for almost four whole days, until my index finger got a crack and I took them all down. My nails were soooo long and pretty but my length rules are pretty simple - if any one of my nails breaks (with the exception of thumbs, who looks at them anyway lol) I take them all down. I was sad to see this mani go, it would have lasted at least a day or two longer. I was even sadder to see the length disappear. See, this is at the end of the summer (which is actually late autumn out here in the desert) and my nails just grow slower in the winter months. They still haven't recovered the length, and this mani was more than a month ago. I wish I had the patience for teabag or gel patches. *sigh*
