Sephora by OPI – Beauty Junkie

When I went to Sephora last week, I was admiring their new aisle they have that is just dedicated to nail polish! With the new fake-nail swatch of each color, I was able to see the polishes in a different way. They even have that for all of the other brands they carry now.

The one that caught my eye was Beauty Junkie! I picked it up and wondered how I had never noticed it before. So I bought it. 🙂

It is really cool because in different lights, it can look brown, burgundy, or really dark mauve! I swear sometimes in the sun, it has looked like a plum even. Its a nice and rich creme, so even though it is really dark, it can’t be mistaken for black… I love it!

OPI – Every Month Is Oktoberfest

My husband’s birthday was on Saturday. I took him to the Magic Castle in Hollywood! We had both wanted to go but had never been, and I was lucky enough to get an invite from a magician’s wife. 🙂

We got all dressed up and I wore this on my nails and toes…

OPI – Every Month is Oktoberfest!
It is so gorgeous! Just as sparkly as Germanicure, but more on the wine/burgundy side.

Actually, the shimmer is a really warm and sparkly red, but the base is so blue that it really makes the polish look more plum or burgundy on the nail. When you actually pull the brush out and see the base, its very blue.

These are the only two I got from the new Fall collection and I LOVE them both!

OPI – Germanicure

Okay, so fall colors are my absolute favorite… and I LOVE some of the new OPI fall polishes!

The first one I tried is this gorgeous, glowy, dark, rich red called Germanicure!

If I have a red like this, it certainly isn’t as glowing as this one. Its like one of those cars you can’t stop looking at because its dark but the paint is like glowing from underneath. That’s what it reminds me of!

My Valentine's Nails! Cherry O's nail foils!

Okay this was my first time using nail foils so I made a video! I didn’t get to edit/upload yet but I wanted to at least show the swatches for now.

Aren’t they neato? I think I love nail foils!

I started with China Glaze – Long Kiss, because it was a similar red to put underneath. (I hear you do that in case there are “bald spots”.)

It looked so similar to Heart of Africa to me, but when I looked really super closely, Long Kiss was more of a warm-toned shade and Heart of Africa was more of a wine-toned shade. Very similar though, see?

I even love the adhesive that comes with nail foils! When you layer it on, it looks so UV, like purple and blue and oil-slick-ish.

I got the foil and adhesive from dollarnailart.com. (Careful, its addicting!)

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day! I can’t wait to eat some chocolate cake. 🙂

China Glaze – Urban Night, Makeup Factory – 375, NARS – Tallulah

These 3 dark purples looked so similar to me in the bottle, so I wanted to do a comparison.

Here are China Glaze Urban Night (index and pinky), Makeup Factory 375 (middle), and NARS Tallulah (ring):

The Makeup Factory one got really dark but the NARS and the China Glaze look exactly alike!
