I always thought OPI Man of La Mancha and La Boheme were amazing on their own but since I’m going to Vegas, I wanted to put something pink over black… so this magic happened!
Man of La Mancha over black!
I’ve never posted a pedicure here before, but I had to do this quickly as my little sweetie pie napped… Didn’t have time to do toes and nails!
I started with half neon yellow and half neon pink, then I applied it on top.
The awesome neon colors are from the China Glaze Lite Brites. Whip It Good (yellow) and Lip Smackin’ Good (pink). Love these colors!
The tag on the Black Spotted bottle says to use a very thin layer.
It came out looking pretty cool, but not the round spots that I expected after looking at other swatches online. I will be playing with this one again to figure it out.
When you have a 2 year old, you don’t have a lot of time to re-do your nails! You’re lucky to get to do them in the first place. 🙂
This content is also on my permanent sale page:
We can do paypal, or a check if you’re in the US.
This is first come, first served. I will go by the order in which the emails arrive in my inbox.
Email -> email@example.com
Subject -> Blog Sale Purchase!
The best method is to use Paypal, which would go something like this:
- Email me your list of polishes along with your Paypal account email address. Let me know what country I’m mailing to. Also let me know if you are okay to pay as Gift or not.
- I will send you the Paypal invoice that will itemize the polish list confirmed to be yours and let you know what they cost plus the shipping cost. (I am going to charge exact USPS shipping, I’m not adding any fees or anything!)
- If you can choose to pay as Gift, Paypal will not take a portion of our money. If you feel uncomfortable paying as Gift, then I will have to add the percentage that they charge us to your amount. They charge 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction.
If you don’t want to use Paypal, I can accept a check as long as you’re in the US. You would just have to wait for me to clear your check before I send your polishes.
In that case, just email me your list of polishes and request to send a check. I’ll email you back with your confirmed list of polishes and the cost of them plus shipping.
The most risky option is trying to offer to pay with gift cards or swapping items from my MUA wish list.
Gift Cards I’ll accept are Starbucks, Sephora, Ulta, Babies R Us, Target, Walmart, or you can try me on Department Stores so I can see if they are in my area.
(If someone requests to buy a polish on your list and you’ve requested a swap, I have to go with the sale first. So you might not want to risk trying this method with the really rare and sought after polishes? I’m just trying to give everyone a way to get the ones they want.)

I know I’ve been pretty non-existent lately! Its for a good reason, but a reason that makes me unable to swatch nail polish for a while… I will explain later. 🙂
For now, here is a swatch from a couple of months ago that I’ve been wanting to post.
OPI – Stay The Night
I loved it in the sun! In the shade it looked pretty gritty so I added a top coat and although it took away the sand look, I ended up liking it better. It stayed on for quite a while because it didn’t chip off!
I think I’d like anything that was black and pink?
Its so hard to wait for these 2 broken nails to grow… I want to get swatching again!
So I’ll just apologize for the first 2 screwed up nails and post anyway.
Here is (from pointer to pinky) LA Colors – Chocolate Shimmer, OPI – Amarillo Almondine, Essie – Armed and Ready, and the pinky and bottle are OPI – Shim-merry Chic:
Shim-merry Chic came out a while ago with Merry Midnight. It has flakies that are a goldish-green, a blueish-purple, and the rest is mostly a neutral brown color.
Armed and Ready ended up looking very dark gray. When you can catch the shimmer, you see the gold flash, but it is a very hidden shimmer.
I love Chocolate Shimmer, so that’s a keeper for sure. Amarillo Almondine might be a little too light for my taste!
