Lynnderella's Witch Cauldron Was It?

 Hope everyone had a Super Halloween!!

I hardly do holiday themed manicures. Mostly because I'm lazy, This is not what I wore today but it is the best I could do to try to be Halloweenish on the blog today. I wore it over The hungry Asian's Nightfall which will be the next post you'll see on here. It's a blackish plum. I'm usually not big on orange which is something you'll hear me say every single time I post a manicure with orange :) but It's hard not to like this polish. My only regret was that I took it off before I took some pictures of it outside.. One day I'll wear this beauty again.. hopefully. 

So there are some bonus pics on the bottom of Lulu from her First Halloween. She was a hotdog and she helped answer the door to pass out candy. hah she was the trick part of the night. I also put her in Honey's last year costume and it was funny because LuLu was busting out all over the place, I didn't get very good pics of that costume but I still wanted to share. Okay long day I'm gong to bed. See you guys tomorrow!!

Psychedelic Butterfly Wings

I don't have much to say about this one. I was wearing CN Unicorn Puke and I felt like doing some nail art well first thing that popped into my mind was butterfly wings. I went with crazy non butterfly wing colors since I wanted to be able to see them over the somewhat darker purple base. I had this blue and green on my table near me and that's what I used. I can't recall what the name of the blue is or what the name of the green color is either... hah I know bad blogger.  I've done butterfly wings before when I had longer nails and I liked those better. here's a link to that post. It's always fun to mix up things, it makes life a little more interesting!

Opi James Bond Layering Manicure

Often some of the more interesting things in life happen by mistake or rather by pure chance. This manicure is one of those things. While working on Swatching the Skyfall Collection I came across this combo and my jaw dropped! I was wearing Moonraker layered with the The living Daylights glitter when I was picking the next polish I was going to swatch. I wanted to figure it so while I was removing the glitter I had an action plan. Well let me tell you how glad I am I didn't remove the glitter manicure first or else this would have never happened!! I opened up The spy who loved me and I did one light coat over the manicure because I was testing how much coverage the polish gave and to my surprise it created a very magical look. I haven't tested out any other combos but I'm pretty sure if you just had the glitter and The spy who loved me you could reproduce a similar look either by not wearing a base or by using a similar metallic base as moonraker. I had no idea how The spy who loved me was going to come alive when layered over this glitter and also the blue glitter pieces from the living daylights made this look really pop since they end up being a nice pop of purple. Alright I'm rambling because this combo has me over the moon!! Hooray for Accidental discoveries!! Now image all the different combos you can create with the polish you already own!

OPI Euro Centrale Press Release



Here's the official Press Release for The OPI Euro Centrale Collection that will be released in February. This one has me super excited since Poland is being represented!! YAY!

The New Voice of Fashion


OPI Announces the Launch of Euro Centrale for Spring/Summer 2013




Classic meets contemporary with Euro Centrale by OPI for Spring/Summer 2013. Celebrating a region where history meets modern design, the collection’s twelve new nail lacquers offer a mixture of glamorous metallic hues; playful bright shades in periwinkle, aqua and pink; and creamy blues in indigo, midnight and aubergine.

“Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania make up an exciting new fashion hotspot,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “When visiting these countries, you’ll view Gothic churches alongside vibrant graffiti murals, blending two very different aesthetics. This fusion of old and new was also seen in runway looks during New York Fashion Week, where classic styles were reinvented with modern silhouettes and patterns.
Euro Centrale boasts a wide variety of shades, ranging from pale nude to deep blue – and featuring everything from shimmering copper to aqua in between!,” continues Weiss-Fischmann. “Whether you’re looking to spice up a black and white print, or add neutrality to a vivid brocade, these lacquers are designed to accessorize spring’s hottest looks.”

Euro Centrale by OPI includes the following shades:
