OPI Brights 2015

I remember when the first OPI Brights collection launched in 2005. I ran to my local Trade Secret to snag as many of the bold, summer shades as possible. I still have at least half of them in my collection, and the same goes for the Brights that have come out since; Bright Pair, Brighter By The Dozen, Mod About Brights etc. It’s one of the recurring collections I most look forward to and the OPI Brights 2015 collection is no exception. Keep reading to see if it lived up to my expectations.

China Glaze Spring 2015 – Road Trip

ROAD TRIP!! That was the theme of my day’s off during my tenure as a ride operator at Cedar Point. Every Thursday, me and my best buds would hop in my convertible and hit the road. We would either visit our families or hit up other parks, like Sea World, Geauga Lake or Kings Island. As fun as our adventures were, the best part was driving in the car, tunes blasting, with endless amounts of singing and laughing.

The China Glaze Spring 2015 collection celebrates the memory-making fun of the Road Trip with twelve diverse nail polish shades, ranging from delicate pastels to punchy brights.

Essie Resort 2015

I have never understood the point of going on vacation in the summer. When you grow up in Ohio, Summer is the best time of year to be outside. I see no reason to escape. However, come mid-January, all I want is a beach.

Of all the places I’ve traveled, Italy is definitely my favorite. The landscapes of Tuscany, the history of Rome, the unique charm and food of Venice, I could go on an on. All of those memories come flooding back as I play with the new Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer collection that is named after Italian locales, three of which I’ve visited. I can never have enough foils in my life and these flecked nail polish colors are so me.
