I’m calling the second half of the OPI Nordic collection for Fall 2014, 50 Shades of Tan. Okay, I’m exaggerating but there are a lot of neutrals here. So much so, that they seem better suited for the Wild, Wild, West than the Nordic countries. Granted, I’ve never visited Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway or Sweden so they could be totally on the nose for that part of the world. Let’s take a look!

NOTD – L’Oreal Neons Punchy Lychee Dotticure

I Bought This|Press Sample

This bright dotticure was inspired by the little girls who live on my street. A couple of them like to pop by when the boyfriend and I are dining on our deck and they’ve become fascinated with my nail polish room and constantly changing manicures. In fact, one held her arms out wide and declared, “Your obsession is this big,” when looking into my office. She’s totally right, ha!

Anyway, last night they came over and I invited them in to see all the Helmer drawers of color, swatch wheels and random nonsense in my room. And together, they decided that my nails needed polka dots in these two colors so I went with it. The 4-year-old who LOVES pink, as most little girls do, was adamant that this new L’Oreal Colour Riche shade go on my nails.

I used the L’Oreal Neons shade, Punchy Lychee, with Rimmel LONDON Salon Pro shade, BritPop, for the dots. And even though Punchy Lychee is more orange-coral than pink-coral, as the bottle color inferred, I love this combo and may need to consult with them from now on. I mean, I have the same taste in music as the 10-year-old, so, why not?

What’s on your nails today? Have you tried the L’Oreal Neons or new Rimmel Salon Pro formula?

I’m a very ticklish person and I hate, sorry HATE, being tickled. Like, I may involuntarily kick you if you try. Something the boyfriend found out early in our relationship. Sorry, babe!

Though when Tickled means six creamy new nail polishes from Zoya, I’m all on board! As one of half of the Zoya Summer 2014 offerings, Tickled offers a great range of shades for everyone, from the more traditional to the avant garde.
