Sephora by OPI- Mermaid To Order W/ Holo Topcoat

Let me just start out by saying that this has to be my favorite color combo! It's so gorgeous with he holo topcoat too!

Mermaid To Order is a metallic medium to deep green with a slight shift to dark green/blue. It looks so much like the ocean in my opinion.

This is two coats of Mermaid To Order, 3 coats of holo topcoat and Orly topcoat.

Sinful Colors Cinderella & Sephora by OPI Natural Environ-ment

This is a quick post since I didn't get the greatest pictures of my mani yesterday. I painted them last night and the lighting in my house isn't the best for these pictures.

Anyway, here's my mani:

On my index and ring finger: 2 coats of Sephora by OPI Natural Environ-ment with 3 coats of Sinful Colors Cinderella.
On my middle and pinky finger: 3 coats of Sinful Colors Cinderella.




The formula with these two are totally different. Cinderella is a bit runny and very sheer. I love the color so I'll just live with the formula. Natural Environ-ment is kind of thick and a bit streaky. Two to three coats fixes it though.

I thought Natural Environ-ment was a good color for a base coat for this. What do you think? What's your opinion of Cinderella?

L'Oreal Bijou Crystals- B. Impulsive

I've had this polish for a year or so and I found it at a discount store. Since I found it at a discount store I'm guessing this is discontinued or it's just an older line.

I have an older post (probably one of my first ones) with another polish from this line. I really love the colors but the polish seems kind of thick and drags over my nails. I believe I have another polish in my collection from this line so I'll see if it is doing the same thing. It could be because the polish is older, but I have a few that are older than those polishes and doesn't have that problem.

Anyway, this is China Glaze base coat, 3 coats of B. Impulsive and Orly topcoat. It is a gorgeous medium purple that has a bit of metallic shimmer in it's base that is seen in bright lights. It's full of scattered rainbow glitter that just adds to the color.

I love this color, just not a fan of the formula.
