OPI Couture De Minnie Collection

image

So I just recently did  swatches of the Couture de Minnie collection by OPI. I really like the polishes in this collection. Really nice colors, and they go well together.

Check them out after the jump. I also did Minnie Mouse as a mix of accent nail art with the swatches. 🙂

Face it – Colored Paper Nails Collection

image

So as promised, I’ll have some posts up. Buuut, warning, this is packed with pictures. As I decided to just put all these polishes together as they’re all from the same collection. Any who, here I give you Face It “Colored Paper Nails” collection, from The Face Shop. Got them for P295 each, or roughly $7 a piece. They’re all so pretty, I couldn’t get just one! If you’re following me on Instagram, I posted pictures of my hauls. This is part of my (extended) birthday haul. lol 😀

Here’s a swatch of Bobbie nail creme in Patent Blue.

This baby gave me a freakin’ hard time to even her out. But I don’t think I mind, it’s such a beauty anyway.

NOTD – Summer Sunset Gradient

image

I added designs over my previous mani. Actually at the time I did this, I don’t even know where I was really going with it. Someone from IG just suggested that I apply red glitter gradient on the upper part. Then I added a  palm tree as an accent coz my mani kind of reminded me of a sunset in summer by the beach. Though I didn’t try to draw the beach/shore even just in black paint, I was still experiencing a bad hair (nails) day that time, even my glitter gradient didn’t go as how I want it to be. But, oh well…

Just Another Polish Problem

image

So I’m bored this afternoon and decided to gather all my untrieds, to swatch, and re-swatch polishes.

I’m on a serious “no buy” since March 1 up to now (not only coz I’m trying to control myself, but also I hate spending more than what I really have. I’m a bum, so yeah, very limited resources.) so I have no idea how I ended up with all these. O_o I mean I know I’m adding bottle after bottle of polish in my stash, but I haven’t thought it would be this many.

Some were bought for me by a friend, some I bought just before March, some were bought by mom’s assistant and some I picked up when we went grocery shopping (Mom pays for them, so that’s still a “no buy” for me. Lol) and some were given to me coz she can’t bring all her polishes to her new home (Yes I accept relief polishes! Lol So if you ever wanna give out some polishes, put me on top of your lists please? Haha)

So now, my question is… How can I swatch all these without drying out my hands from too much polish remover?

I’m thinking of using glue as base coat so I could just peel them off, but that would take forever to dry.

Hmm, suggestions from anyone?
