When I used to treat myself to manicures frequently (before I could no longer justify the cost) this was the colour I would always ask for. It’s a gorgeous deep shade of red with a very subtle hint of shimmer to it and I’d say it’s probably my all-time favourite red nail polish. You can pick up OPI’s I’m Not Really A Waitress for $19.95 from Adore Beauty.
The only time I wear glitter nail polish is around the Christmas and New Years holiday period,so when my mum brought me this OPI/Sephora nail polish back from the US I knew it had to be my New Years Eve shade for the year. It took around 3 coats to get an opaque coverage and the colour is a beautiful mix of champagne, rose gold and a soft pewter colour depending on the light.
I was looking through my nail polish collection the other day, and this is by far my most worn polish for the Autumn/Winter months. I love it. It has a very slight shimmer to it, which really helps to brighten the deep plum colour. The formulation of these nail polishes is great, and they usually last on my nails for a good 5 days or so before chipping.
I went through a phase a little while back of obsessing over the Mecca nail polish range. I’ve since gotten over that obsession and I don’t think I’ve purchased a new shade in over a year or so. The colours that I do already own from their range though, are beautiful. ‘Audrey’ is one of my favourite cool-weather shades, and it’s a lot more beautiful in person than what shows in the image above. In fact, this colour is so pretty that at least 3 of my friends have gone out and purchased this after seeing me wear it. Not bad, huh?
This is one Essie shade that I’d never heard of before ordering it from OzSale a few months back (and with a name like that, you’d think I would have). It’s a beautiful deep red shade with a hint of shimmer to it. And let that sentence forever stand as a testament to how crap I am at describing nail polish shades. In any case, it’s a pretty colour and perfect for the cooler months.
