I have been slacking in updating! In terms of blogging, I haven't been very productive, but with everything else, I've actually gotten a lot accomplished. Seven more weeks until I graduate!

OPI- Simmer and Shimmer

Zoya Dove

Zoya Charla. I don't really like the way this looks with the flash. It looks so much better in person!

weekly mani pictures

Here are my manis from the last week. I can't wait until I get done with grad school! I will then be able to post more often :)

OPI- Sparkle til Sunrise. I LOVE this.. but not the fact that my nails looked stained beneath it. It is a VERY sheer teal jelly with different colors of transparent glitter. This took four coats! This is part of the Summer 2011 OPI ULTA Exclusives

Here it is without the flash

China Glaze- Haunting is from their 2011 Halloween collection. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I love being festive with Halloween-themed polish!

Here it is without the flash. It's just a simple black with tiny pieces of silver glitter but it's so beautiful! I don't have any polishes in my collection quite like it.

Zoya Reece: I guess this can be considered a duochrome; although the effect was difficult to capture in an image. It flashes a goldish yellow. My mom saw me wearing this shade and immediately wanted me to paint her nails with the same color.

Without the flash- it looks nothing like this.

Zoya Reva is from their 2011 Sunshine collection. Although it's hard to see, I believe it has glass flecks in it. It is very vibrant!

Here it is without the flash. You can see more of the shine.

Catching up....

I haven't posted for over a week, so here's all the manis I did throughout last week up until today.
OPI- Mermaid's Tears. This is one of my absolute favorites! OPI's Hey Get in Lime! was one of my favorite minty greens, and this is a slightly bluer version of that.

Here it is without the flash.

OPI- Glitzerland from the fall 2010 Swiss collection. I didn't think that I would like this shade at first. It's rather plain and I gravitate towards brighter colors. It grew on me though.

Here it is without the flash. It is very shiny. This is only two coats.

Zoya- Gemma I LOVE THIS! This is like an army green with a bluish purple flash to it. It was part of Zoya's Spring 2011 collection.

Cetuem 119. I don't really don't know a lot about this brand. I believe it is international. The bottle says London, England. I got it in a blog sale from a fellow blogger. This shade very closely resembles Sally Hansen Mochachino. I posted that one a couple weeks ago. I'm not sure which color I would consider this; perhaps a reddish brown?

Here it is without the flash.
