OPI Show Us Your Tips! - Spring 2016 New Orleans

OPI Show Us Your Tips! – Spring 2016 New Orleans

Happy Mani Monday! How many of you are dragging after staying up to watch the Oscars? Guilty! Between that and the mountain of homework I’ve been tackling (I’m taking FIVE classes this semester), this morning came way too early, so I want to brighten our day with my latest color obsession. I am swooning over OPI Show Us Your Tips! from the Spring 2016 New Orleans collection.

Did you have a favorite crayon as a kid? Was it just me? Mine was definitely Cornflower. It’s the cat of the Crayola box in that you have to work for its affection. Cornflower was probably the least pigmented crayon, so you really had to work to get that beautiful purple-tinged blue to come through on paper. In a lot of ways, Show Us Your Tips! is similar.

OPI Show Us Your Tips! is a vivid cornflower with iridescent glass-flecks (and you know how I feel about those), but it’s a little sheer. Even after three coats I can see my nail underneath when I get all up close and personal with it, but that color makes me say, “Who cares?!?” It’s one of the best colors OPI has put out and a definite must-have in my book.

I’m working on my full OPI NOLA review, but in the meantime I’ve been wearing this color out so get involved! The OPI Spring 2016 collection is available now at salons and mass retailers nationwide. You can snag it online at, and

Deborah Lippmann Spring 2016 – Afternoon Delight

Writing about nails all these years has left me pretty jaded. I still get excited about seeing new colors and products, but it takes a lot to make me truly giddy, and Deborah Lippmann has done it. The Spring 2016 Afternoon Delight collection brings exciting new changes to the Deborah Lippmann line. We’re talking holo, new formula, and a new brush.

Orly Spring 2016 “Melrose” collection

During a recent #NailGlossip we discussed which upcoming collections we are excited for in 2016, and someone mentioned Orly Melrose and I was all, “O RLY?” A quick search for promo images had me looking forward to it as well. I mean, they had me at holo… glitter. What surprised me is that the colors are even more bold and saturated than the bottle shade implies. Check it!

OPI Hello Kitty nail polish collection

When I first heard about the OPI Hello Kitty collection last summer I sighed and thought, “Here come ALL THE PINKS!” If you know me, and by now I assume most of you do, you know pink is not my taste. That being said, the Hello Kitty universe is very much a celebration of all things adorable in pink and primary hues. In that sense, OPI embodied the Sanrio sweetheart’s spirit yet they managed to create some unique pinks that melted this pink-hater’s heart.
