O.P.I. - Catherine The Grape a.k.a. big lemming killed
Wow, it's been only 3 days but it feels like it's been a month since I've hit the keyboard. The thing is - about an hour after I posted Hue Rang? post something went wrong with our electricity and this time it seemed serious - of course my computer was on when the entire house got dark and the next day, after the wizard of electricity fixed the problem, my dear Mojmir (the name of my computer) was still lost in the dark. So I needed another magician (my BF is a computer magician, yes), but he was really busy until yesterday when he finally fixed it and now I'm baaaack! I need to check all your blogs, it's going to take gazillion years and I still have to study, lol. But anyway! I have a few stuff prepared for you!
The Eveline Holografic Shine week or rather days (for I cannot promise you post every day in my study period) will happen, I promise! But today, let's see my biggest lemming in O.P.I. department right after I got my DS glamour. Catherine The Grape ... you know how some people crave the OPI DS bottles or the original My Private Jet? That's how much I fell in love with Catherine The Grape. Sadly it wasn't easly to find her - a friend of mine couldn't find it in USA either for me. I don't think it's a HTF, but it was for me. :) Now it's mine!! What makes me blush and I really felt bad because of it was the fact that I had it for two months before I tried it on and even forgot that I have it for a while. Sometimes I think that my WL hunt is getting insane. I just tick the one that I got and move to another, without even enjoying the one that I've just gotten for longer time than it takes me to get it to my room and put it on a shelf ... I dunno. I actually felt like a dragon in that moment - hoarding polish just so I can lie on it. But I love dragons so that feeling quickly passed as I ordered few other bottles of polish, lol. Pictures!
First three are natural light and how Catherine really looks like, two sunlight pictures just so I can bring out the shimmer to the maximum. As I'm a total green polish freak it is perhaps suprising that my biggest lemmings in O.P.I. department were blue and purple. Right now my three biggest lemmings in OPI are green, reddish purple and blue, lol. I don't know, O.P.I. does them all right, I guess.
Catherine The Grape is a part of O.P.I. Russian Collection for Fall 2007, an awesomely strong collection, with Russian Navy, Boris & Natasha, St. Petersburgundy, Affair on the Red Square and two awesome blackened colours, that I worshiped when I was in my blackened polish phase, now I find them slightly boring. But still, awesome collection, don't you think? It's already a green label, B3F with pro wide brush. Now, about the brush. I got Catherine the Grape from a second hand, since, like I said, I couldn't find it anywhere otherwise and the second hand convinently forgot to mention the brush is damaged. That's why my not-so-good application on this one. I wouldn't care much, since it's still manegable, if this wasn't one of my biggest lemmings ever. I've already gotten an idea how to fix it though, so the next time I'll put it on, it's going to be a big mess, but I hope I'll save it. :) It's a gorgeous purple, that I absolutely adore.
Anything else? Oh, this was two coats. I imagined I'll need three because of the wonky brush, but didn't need to, yay! It dried pretty fast too! One of O.P.I.s finest, I'd say!
What do you think about Catherine The Grape? Do you own it? :)
Thank you for reading!
