OPI - Merry Midnight

I just found this post listed that I never published! Obviously it's because I didn't have time to talk about this polish, but since this isn't my polish, these are the only pictures I have and cannot retake them... so here I post.

I brought my laptop to work in hopes that MAYBE I could see my screen under the lights, but as you can see.................... nothing. That was what I was working with for so long. AYE!

Hahahaha!

I'm going to have a NOTD and more swatches soon, but in the interim I had to share the best picture ever.



Haha, that's my baby, Lily and my friends, K, C & I took her and Jenna to the park along with my friends 2 1/2 year old daughter. Oh mannn, good times.

*Note: Lily climbed up there on her own and within a second from the picture being taken, C had picked Lily up and we made sure she was okay. No more than five minutes later, Lily tried again. Ahh, the life of a daredevil kitten.

Sinful Colors - What's Your Name?

Please refer to this post for details on my swatches.

I wasn't going to swatch this polish because of the disappointment I discussed here. Boy am I glad I did!!! For some reason I saw more sparkles and amazingness this time than I ever have when wearing this polish. It really didn't show in the pictures, but it was there!

Sinful Colors - Secret Admirer

Please refer to this post for details on my swatches.

Sinful - Secret Admirer is seriously one of my favorite polishes ever in creation. (Yes, I'm obsessed with silver.) Please refer to these posts so that I'm not being redundant.

OPI - Take It For Granite

Please refer to this post for details on my swatches.

This polish was my first ever OPI polish. I got it probably 1999/2000 (I know, I know, bad formula -- but I can't part with it!) I got it in a Caboodles container with other misc things from JCPenny for back to school. The only things I remember are this polish and the Caboodles -- probably because I still have them both. Anyway, this is one of my favorite polishes EVER in creation and it's one of my main go-to polishes. The formula has stayed fantastic -- it's never gotten goopy or anything. If anyone knows that there's a way I can get this polish in an updated formula (I know it's currently discontinued, but still, I have hope) I would GREATLY appreciate it!

Onto the pics:

*Please ignore all the crazy clutter & background! Haha*

NYC - French White Tip

Please refer to this post for details on my swatches.

This is the only white polish I own, surprisingly. I like this color, but it's very runny and hard to build on. You have to let each layer dry COMPLETELY before you apply another layer, because it has bad drag. I definitely want to get a couple of different whites, especially a really nice stark white creme.











Jenna Bella was quite curious as to why mommy kept going back and forth between rooms.

Fashion Bug - Silver

Please refer to this post for details on my swatches.

Alas, the time has arrived for my swatches!! First up, we have Fashion Bug - Silver. I absolutely LOVE this polish. It's a very thin formula and dries super fast! I love the color... it's so shiny and metallic -- it really brings out the silver in my rings. I can't say enough about this color, seriously. It was one of the best on-a-whim purchases I've ever made.
