FingerPaints Once in a Wild – Fall 2015

I may not be ready for fall weather, I mean we’ve barely had a summer in Cleveland, but I AM ready for fall sparkle on my nails. The FingerPaints Once in a Wild collection blends three existing crystallized shades with three new micro-glitters. It’s apropos that I’m posting this on a Thursday because the glitters feel like a throwback, in a good way. They’re reminiscent of the top-coat-eating fine glitters that made me fall in love with sparkle polish years ago.

Zoya Fall 2015 – Focus & Flair

Zoya Fall 2015 – Focus and Flair

This fall, Zoya is blending vibrant jewel tones with rich, earthy neutrals in the Zoya Focus (creme) and Zoya Flair (metallic) collections. What has me intrigued are the “micro-grind” pigments that promise an “extra-smooth, streak-free application” and metallics that are “fully blended into a vibrant base, creating the effect of brilliant colored melted metal.”

I hope that means they are metallics that glow with no brush marks. Let’s take a deeper look.

Nail Polish Room Update

Hey guys, remember me? I know it’s been a minute since I’ve blogged regularly, but I’m not abandoning you. This summer has been crazy. I reorganized my office (aka the nail polish room), which is still a work in progress, and I’ve been on a bit of a journey that I haven’t been ready to talk about until now. Keep reading to see what’s up.

OPI Coca-Cola 2015 – Icons of Happiness

Even though I cut out pop (yes, I say pop because, Ohio) from my diet over 20 years ago, I’m a die-hard Coca-Cola fan. I used to annoy servers during high school and college by ordering Cherry Cokes, made with grenadine and a cherry, natch. And I still I treat myself to a one when we go to the movies. Our fave movie theater, an AMC with recliners and assigned seats, has a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine that I love playing with to discover new flavor combinations. I’m currently into Vanilla Barq’s.

This year, the Coca-Cola bottle is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. The iconic bottle, given its distinctive curves by The Root Glass Company in Terra Haute, Indiana, is recognizable worldwide. To honor the green-tinted beauty, OPI has paired up once again to release two signature colors. The OPI Coca-Cola 2015 Icons of Happiness collection includes a re-release of some of last year’s shades along with the Two to Celebrate duo.
