Friday is here! Feels good, doesn’t it? I have fun collection to show you today, the OPI Couture de Minnie Collection. It includes four limited edition polishes and one new Liquid Sand shade. This collection is inspired by a more “fashion-forward” Minnie Mouse. All of the colors are reds and pinks – but there’s a wide range of textures and shades to give it variety.
I’ll start with my surprise favorite, Innie Minnie Mightie Bow. This polish is a crimson red with a fine gold shimmer. Think of it as the less flamboyant, baby sister of The Spy Who Loved Me. Innie Minnie Mightie Bow has a similar red shade with but with a much more subtle gold effect. I don’t know why I like this one so much…but I do. The formula was nice. This is two easy coats.
OPI Walks the Runway with New Couture de Minnie Nail Lacquers, Inspired by Minnie Mouse
OPI announces the launch of its Couture de Minnie collection, including four limited edition nail lacquers and one new Liquid Sand™ shade.

San Francisco by OPI brings street chic style with West Coast flair to nails and toes for Fall/Winter 2013. This new collection features a palette ranging from sky and sea-colored hues of blues and gray to reds, burgundies and browns inspired by some of the city’s most iconic elements – Chinatown, the Golden Gate bridge and the Embarcadero. This fall mélange is mixed with texture, seen in three new Liquid Sand™ nail lacquers in earthy hues of taupe, blue and gray: It’s All San Andreas’s Fault, Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! and Alcatraz…Rocks. Liquid Sand lacquers dry to a textured, matte finish, infused with reflective sparkle.
“To me, the women of San Francisco and the city itself really epitomize today’s multifaceted beauty consumer,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “San Francisco offers a European flair with distinct West Coast attributes. These elements inspired a collection of urban chic nail lacquer shades, thanks to the sophisticated combination of high fashion and eclectic street style.
“With twelve colors ranging from moody grays and blues to garnet and ruby jewel tones, these lacquers are designed to accessorize fall’s hottest looks, from military details to winter whites,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “On fall runways, models were seen wearing luxurious textures from head to toe. The three new Liquid Sand nail lacquers incorporate the texture trend through nails, with rich matte finishes in colors to complement the season’s fashion.”
San Francisco by OPI includes the following shades:

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone had a chance to enter the giveaway!! It’s so huge, even I can’t believe it!! I wish I could enter myself (like seriously..I do.) I’ve had some growing pains with the new site launch – but I’m slowing working through issues. I did the whole site on my own (and I’m NOT an expert!) so I expected some hiccups. Thanks for being patient. :)
So today I have the Summer Liquid Sand Collection release from OPI, Bond Girls. Each shade has a matte, textured, sparkly finish and is named after an iconic Bond Girl. These polishes were all surprisingly easy to apply…minimum clean-up! All swatches are two coats (without topcoat – as directed) unless stated otherwise.
I’ll start with my favorite, Tiffany Case, a light blue with a silver sparkle. This polish was high-definition! It’s hard to describe; but the color and glitter were so sharp!! The finish was very similar to Jesse’s Girl JulieG Blueberry Fizz…but more teal.

Yay! It’s another Digit-al Dozen nail art week! This month’s theme is animals. We had to adjust the wording of our post titles this week for obvious reasons. Our typical lead in of “Digit-al Dozen Does [theme]” just wouldn’t have been right. Man, I laugh out loud every time I think about it though. Thank goodness someone noticed because I’m oblivious! So on to my first mani…it’s pretty abstract but that’s what I love about it! See the koi fish?

It’s the last day of Geek Week. So much fun!! I went mainstream with all my geek manis and today is no exception. I was looking for a comic book hero and Iron Man won out by unanimous family vote. Now this mani makes me giggle. It’s not dead-on, that’s for sure. You know that line in movies where one character (who is distraught or dirty, etc.) turns to the other and says, “Don’t look at me! I’m hideous.”? I kinda feel like my middle finger Iron Man would be saying that right to you right now!
