Sephora by O.P.I Looks Like Rain, DearThursday, December 08, 2011
Good evening, dear readers!
I am back home now with my trusty light box (which actually isn't mine, I just use it :P) and am finally able to take nail photos again. Yipee!!! :D ^-^
I hope that this week has been going well for everyone. Mine has been pretty darn good! MUCH better than last week... ugh!
For today's swatch, I have one of the new polishes that I recently got: Sephora by O.P.I Looks Like Rain, Dear. If I am not mistaken, this polish was released around the 2010 holiday season. I remember wanting it last year, hehehe. I actually forgot all about this polish until I went to check out Sephora, and I was like "Woah! You are coming home with me!" Thankfully I had been able to afford it. YAY, new polish! ^-^
This polish looks like a light gold without too much yellow. Upon further inspection, it has a mix of yellow gold and silver particles in it, which when combined give a nice soft gold which I can wear with my skin tone. Very similar effect like in Orly's Luxe.
This polish also boasts plenty of sparkly, with the base as well as the holographic glitter scattered throughout. Application was a breeze, and the polish is decently pigmented.
In the pictures you can see that it has a rough texture, but that can be fixed with a few coats of top coat (I would suggest more than one).
Unless I am mistaken, I have a combination of top coat covered and not top coat covered pics.
YAY!!! :D I also picked up a bottle of Sephora by O.P.I Spark-tacular, and then later I was fortunate enough to pick up Nicole by O.P.I Rainbow in the S-Kylie. I believe Spark-tacular was released earlier this year, and Rainbow was just released in the current Kardashian collection.
Now I am not a huge fan of buying products that are associated with celebrities (unless of course, the celebrities are AWESOME!!) and hence I never picked up that gorgeous blue from the Nicole Justin Bieber collection. However, Rainbow in the S-Kylie is a perfect dupe of Rainbow Connection from the O.P.I Muppets collection. Like, exact dupe! Since Warm and Fozzie and Rainbow Connection seem to be sold out the most where I looked, I thought this was pretty great!! :D
I layered one coat of Spark-tacular and then one coat of Rainbow in the S-Kylie, and over the gold I think it looks so glitzy glam glitter fantastic!!! :D Whee, so much fun!! :D
Okay, I'm really tired right now, lol. XD
Well, I will be back soon with more swatches to come, and I hope that everyone has a safe and fun Friday!
Until next time,
