OPI's Alpine Snow

Quick paint jobs while taking a break from wrapping Christmas presents. This is before I cleaned it up. I just wanted to post the pic then get back to wrapping business. 2 coats Alpine Snow probably should have done 3 but I chip my polish within the 1st day due to my job, and 1coat Seche Vite top coat.

OPI's Merry Midnight and Baby Its Coal Outside

So its 3 something o'clock in the am, I have a little case of insomnia, so I decided to paint my digits. Oh the joys of living in the Chicagoland area and the beautiful cold weather. I can't go one day without breaking a nail. Hence my shorties. So like usual I couldn't decide what color to do so I had my bf pick out a few. He picked out these 2 so I decided to try the trend of one nail a different color. Both being OPI's Holiday colors it seemed appropriate. Each nail is 1 coat Nail Envy, 2 coats color, 1 coat Seche Vite. Alright I think its time for bed!

I haven't done a photoshop isolated color pic in a long time so I gave it a shot. I apparently need a brighter light bulb in my living room because the polish by my cuticles look good until I upload the pics I take from my HD camera and I can see how bad I messed it up! Anyways this color is a classic. In my opinion its more of a purple but most of the pictures I took it came out blue. This is 1 coat Nail Envy, 2 coats OPI Ink and 1 coat Seche Vite. :)

OPI's My Private Jet

MPJ is probably ranked in my top 3 favorite polishes. I haven't worn it in awhile and I forgot how great it was. This is 2 coats but I honestly could have gotten away with just one. This isn't the original one but who cares? Its still a fabulous shade. While I was at work tonight I texted my honey and asked him to pick out a polish for me. This is the one he chose which helps explain the pic of us holding hands. Plus he is also the best because he removes my previous polish for me! <3 I topped it off with one coat Seche Vite but I think I will add another coat in the morning for more shine.

OPI's Bastille My Heart

My honey is so good to me. He removed my previous polish and he did just about as good of a job as I would have. I'm too impatient to get it perfect. Anyways I usually wear this color during December so why break tradition. Its a great pinky/red/shimmer for this time of year. This is 2 coats which might not have been enough but like I said, impatient. And 1 coat Seche Vite.

OPI's Royal Rajah Ruby

I think I keep getting worse and worse at painting my nails. I seem to be going backwards. :(

Zoya's Delilah

I, for the life of me could not capture a decent picture of this color. This isn't fully Delilah. I used Northern Lights hologram top coat to get the sparkley effect. I will eventually show the polish by itself. My plan for the day tomorrow is to continue my Christmas shopping but if it snows as much as they are predicting then I might just spend all day doing my nails in different creations.  Anyways this is one coat OPI Nail Envy, two coats Zoya's Delilah and two coats Northern Lights.
