OPI Colorcopia: Your Old Faves Are Back For A Limited Time

opi+colorcopia OPI Colorcopia: Your Old Faves Are Back For A Limited TimeToday, I met up with my Mom and she was sporting the most gorgeous magenta mani. When I asked the color, she said, “It’s OPI Kinky in Helsinki. I think it’s new.”

The name was vaguely familiar, but I knew that the shade hadn’t been new for at least a couple of years. So I did some research and found that my mom, while misinformed, was on the right track.

OPI’s new Colorcopia collection is a limited edition collection celebrating over 20 years of OPI favorites. Best sellers from the last 20 years of OPI nail lacquer are back to celebrate OPI’s 20th anniversary.

Gray and White French Manicure

Gray+and+White+French+Manicure Gray and White French ManicureSo I was just messing around with my new Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen and created this awesome gray and white version of a French mani; the base coat is MAC Hello Kitty Nail Lacquer in On The Prowl.

What I love about Sally Hansen’s new pens is that, if I make a mistake, the pigment wipes right off and I can start all over again…ideal for perfectionists like myself. And once I’m satisfied, I just seal the deal with a clear top coat. Genius!

Thank Heavens For Seche Vite!

 Thank Heavens For Seche Vite!
As usual, I waited until the absolute last minute to paint my nails, in preparation for my 10! Show appearance. I feared I might have to fall asleep with my hands carefully resting on my chest (as not to awaken with a sheet-marked manicure). But my beloved Seche Vite came through in the clutch and dried my two coats of MAC Hello Kitty Nail Lacquer in On The Prowl before my klutsy self had a chance to mess it all up.
