As I have more than once mentioned, I love the dark shades of polish…the dark blues, purples, greens, and reds. Well I can’t deny it any longer, spring is here and summer is fast approaching so I need to embrace the more springy/summery colors. My blog friend, Penelope of All Things Nails, has encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and try the brighter shades. So I took the first step and purchased several, but up until this point I had not worn any of them. So as a one-two punch to help me with my recent drastic cut back, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and try the more springy/summery shades. This first go round, I decided to try some of my corals.
Thursday evening I swatched four from my inventory. At first sight, I felt safest with the Finger Paints Art Appreciation Apricot, but as the night and next morning went on, I warmed up to the more bright and “out there” OPI Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It. If I am going to jump in, I may as well go all out and dive into the deep end. LOL!!! So here is my first entry into the spring/summer shades. OPI Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It!!! It doesn’t hurt that I have a cat named Taz either. LOL!!! I even took it a step further and accented my ring fingers with Milani Gold Glitz. I got the idea from watching Lisa Price of Carol's Daughter last weekend on HSN. She was wearing a Turquoise with the Gold Accent fingers and I really liked the look. The Milani Gold Glitz is a glitter with faint reddish glitter also, so it works nicely with the OPI TDMMDI.
Review: Not surprising, the application was smooth. In this photo and the comparisons, I am wearing two coats of NP. OPI Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It is a pretty, bright, not neon, but bright, corally, orange, creme. Great for your mani and pedi! A definite for spring and summer.
Lastly, just a quick pictorial update on my nail growth. It has only been 2 weeks since my cut back but you can already see growth.
Thanks to Penelope for the encouragement. Grace and Peace to all.
