I also sold my car, horray! So I am currently car-less and in the market. I don't know if you've ever bought a car before, but the process SUCKS. I hate hate hate talking to car dealers. But enough about me!
I recently found the OPI Serena Glam Slam set with Grape...Set...Match and Servin' Up Sparkle and was dying to try it! Check this gorgeousness out!
Love! Grape...Set...Match is a lovely shimmery purple with blue undertones. I really underestimated the shimmer in the bottle, but I love how it translates to the nail. It's sort of sheerer than you may think, I needed 3 good coats to get it opaque and I probably could've done one more, but I don't like doing that many. Overall, though, the formula is great like most OPI, and the brush is super-wide, which isn't my first preference, but it still works okay.
I wasn't in the mood for glitter yesterday, so I thought I would try the holographic Spectraflair top coat I bought off Lori in PAA. Unfortunately I think I shook it up TOO much because it applied more like silver rather than a top coat and my final product ended up looking like a gray-ish purple in the shade. However...when I got out in the sun it was FILLED with holo-goodness!
|You can see on my pinky that I didn't apply it to the edges 'cause I didn't think it'd go on so opaque, haha!|
|*The top coat is WnW clear + spectraflair powder...so don't go searching WnW for this product, haha, 'cause it's a franken|
So overall I was happy with it. The inside color is awkward with my skin tone but when I go outside it makes me smile :)
I've tested this top coat over a bunch of other polishes but none of them turned out this holo...I'll probably show you all sometime.
Well have a great Sunday and I hope to be around as much as possible the next few days 'cause the rest of the month I'm going to be insanely busy with moving and such!
P.S. One of the best YouTube bloggers out there, sayanythingbr00ke, is having a GREAT giveaway for an awesome cause. She is asking everyone to donate some money to a local animal shelter for a chance to win some great make up and hard to find polishes. Check out her video on it here.
