Playing With Nova

Last time, I showed you my right hand. Today, I am going to show you, as usual, my left hand. It's harder to grow my nails on my right hand than on my left, so I always try to swatch on my left hand because my nails are longer.I used OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte and China glaze Nova.

OPI La Paz-itively Hot Matte

What I like about this is the color, the finish and the fact that it is not a dupe to OPI La Pazitively Hot. The first two pictures are without a top coat and the last three are with a top coat. In reality, the color is more vibrant. Fortunately, the finish is not chalky but has a subtle shimmer. The application was flawless and you need 1-2 coats for complete coverage.

OPI Ski Teal We Drop

OPI Ski Teal We Drop is a dark blue teal. I could place this nail polish in the same category as OPI Jade Is the New Black and OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui. All three have this dusty quality that makes them so special. And, don't forget, they are extremely glossy, therefore, you don't need a top coat. The application was flawless and you only need two coats..

Color Club Catwalk Queen

When I saw swatches of Color Club Catwalk Queen on other blogs, I said to myself that I have to have it. But, when I saw it in the bottle, I didn't like it at all. After a while, I decided to have a try and...
It is actualy gorgeous! It is a dark purple with pink and light purple shimmer, that doesn't look black. The application was flawless and I used two coats.

Color Club Resort To Red

Color Club Resort To Red is amazing. Why is it amazing ? Because the finish looks exactly like enamel. It looks like you are actually wearing enamel on your nails. The color is beautiful (dark magenta red), despite the fact that is not a unique color. It could be a dupe for OPI Diva of Geneva but with a slightly different finish (classic shimmer). The application is perfect and this is two coats.

OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous

At the begining, I wasn't impressed with this nail polish. I decided to take this one instead of China Glaze Jitterbug for the fact that OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous has a tinge of green and I thought that that will make it look more unique. Maybe it makes it unique, but it looks dirty and unhealthy. The formula is too thick for this kind of finish. I used two coats and it looks too heavy on my nails for a foil finish. Maybe, I should've stuck with China Glaze Jitterbug. These photos didn't capture the green tinge. I tried it the second time and I started to like it. Anyway, I've got mixed feelings about this nail polish.

OPI Glitter Comparisons (OPI Simmer And Shimmer and Absolutely Alice)

Index and ring (Simmer and Shimmer) and middle (Absolutely Alice). Absolutely Alice is darker and the glitter particles are smaller and Simmer And Shimmer has a more silvery appearance. They are both gorgeous! They also have a gritty feel when dry. But, we all know that removing the glitter is a pain. Don't try to remove all the glitter from one nail at once. You can try to remove the glitter much easier by wiping each nail several times and then coming back to the first nail when you are finished with the last. Try to repeat this until all the glitter is gone. Good luck!
