Last week I wore that really cute pink from Orly, because then nail polish was pigmented I was a little concerned that the polish was gonna stain, but it didn’t and it only enforces my love for this polish, ( and just like I said last week)  I loved it… I really liked it, and to be honest I hate taking it off. Since this was a crème polish I had no real issues removing this polish. I can’t wait until my next trip to Sally’s or Ulta… I’m defiantly gonna be wearing this one often,nail border

Never in the history of NPLC have I ever made a grown so freakin’ audible that even I wondered if I was gonna post this… and it all steams from two words MARIAH CAREY! As an artist I think she derserves all the accolades that she’s been given, but just as a human being I think she might be a little nuts.

20140923_191157I think it’s clear that I’m not a fan of her, but we aren’t here to talk abut her crazy nutty antics where here to talk nail polish so here we go….

I got this nail polish as a two-pack at Marshalls, and (because the other was) I assumed this one would be textured as well, but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t (I ‘m not a big fan of textured polish) and I was really excited about the color because it’s the exact color when I think of the changing leaves.

OPI Sprung is a , coppery, gold glass flecky in a reddish copper base (and it seems like there is a little bit of fuchsia put in it) It’s weird (at least for me) that this polish is a foil  and a shimmer at  the same time. The one thing that I noticed was that this show is super sheer, but it’s completely buildable I was able in 3 coats, I think more than anything I was surprised about how quickly the polished dried and how much shine the polish had. But even after 3 coats I still had visible nail lines and that annoys the hell out of me. The collection includes  eight shades, four of them being a new liquid sands.
All last week I kept seeing fall themed manicures, and this one would be perfect for leaves (color wise)… but I don’t that this would be a a good polish to use for nail art because it’s so thin. This polish is lookvery similar to another OPI Polish  Warm & Fozzie , which doesn’t have as much a pink undertone as this one, but could totally be used if you couldn’t find this one.

When I was looking online at other nail bloggers swatches, I noticed that this particular polish looks good on pretty much all skin tones. As you can tell from the picture the color on the nail  is pretty much exact to the color in the bottle.

20140923_191205I will admit that  I didn’t not want to like this polish, honestly I try to avoid all things Mariah, BUT maybe It was cooler fall air, or maybe I am seriously generous, but I did like this colors despite some of the issues that I had with the polish (the formula being too thin, the visible nail lines, and the chipping on Day 2 of wear) this polish get’s a score of 7 out of 10. I’m gonna try this polish one more time and see if a different base coat and more layers of polish (honestly 3 is my limit) and a good top coat will make a difference.

 

 

Tsuki really took to this polish, I think because it was so shiny, I literally had to take it from her….
