OPI Brand New Skates

Guys, I am so bummed out about the hockey game last night. It was brutal and sad to watch. I want to give Luongo a big hug.

Here's a polish that is pretty popular on NB, but I wasn't too fond of on myself. I think gunmetal is a lost cause for my skin tone. I picked it up at Marshalls (of all places!) packed with OPI Mod Hatter (a sheer, shimmery nude). I ended up sending the sheer to a muggle friend, and waffling on keeping BNS ever since.

I think I might let this one go.

  2. The macro shot shows BNS beauty but it soo sheer... I swaped mine away. Too much trouble IMO.

  3. Even though  I live in New England I'm with the Canucks (I'm Swedish, I have to support the Sehdin twins ;)) and yes, it was very painful to watch. What happened!?


    Back to nail polish, this is gorgeous and your pictures are amazing and the light is awesome. And you just convinced me to get a macro lens.

  5. This polish needs to be layered over an opaque gray, like CND Asphalt, imo.  I love the idea of a gray polish with mixed metallic flakies, but the base color on this just isn't deep enough and the whole thing just looks a little washed out on it's own.

  6. I tried it over Zoya Kelly, but still didn't dig it on me :( It's so pretty, in theory, *sigh*.

  7. Haha, I think the twins are great! I'm not sure what happened! Maybe it was playing Boston, or the drama on the ice... Towards the end, it seemed like the Canucks were playing really aggressively and sloppy, and not providing good defense for Luongo :( Ahh so sad.

    Macro lenses are really expensive LOL!

  8. Yeah, it's a shame it's so sheer! I tried layering it, but I didn't like the effect as much.

  11. Yeah, sad game, I hope they do much better tomorrow. 


    I've got a Canon and I've got my sight on macro that isn't too expensive but yes, they're not cheap :)

  15. I have this one also, and it's so gorgeous in the bottle and in theory... but it looks terrible on! I keep it b/c I think that my opinion will change, but every time I cringe once it's on my nails.
