Nicole by OPI Canadian Star

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Monday! I apologize for my erratic posting last week. It went with my erratic... you know, life. Last week was insane. Friday especially. I had gone to help set up another store (the chain I work for is opening another store in another mall) and was supposed to be out by noon, so I was going to post once I got home. Due to some drama at my own store, I didn't end up coming home until almost 6. I was somewhat displeased. I wish I could be a boss like Jen and schedule like a million posts but I'm lazy. I'm writing this post right now to avoid doing homework!

So today I have a polish that is pretty much every nail blogger's nightmare to try and photograph. You know how so many of us complain about photographing purples? And how our cameras usually turn them more blue? Yeaaaaaaaaah. Nicole by OPI Canadian Star is a gorgeous purple-blue duochrome. WHAT? It's the most gorgeous thing ever on but oh my god photographing it was an exercise in frustration. I spent three hours doing this. I'm not even kidding. I apologize for the weird angles but these are the only ones I could get even a bit of the purple to show. This was four coats - maybe five - it's sheer, so I'd probably layer it next time, but it's so worth it that I really don't mind. It's gorgeous.




My hands look so weird and red in these pictures. Jacking up the ISO settings on my camera does that but because I was in the shade (and inside in one of the pictures) I couldn't get my camera to focus as well. :( I'm sorry!

So yeah. Sometimes Canadian exclusives suck, but this one kicks ass. Swap for it if you can. It's amazing and so worth it. What do you lovelies think? :)

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!

  7. I just got it tonight in WalMart... It came in the Justin Bieber mini pack. It pained me to buy it because I can't stand J. Beibs. But, I really like this color!!! I put a matte finish over it, and it takes on a whole new dimension!
