Suzi and Lynn are connecting the dots
Hello my dear people! How are you doing? I'm tired as hell but happy! I passed a bitch of an exam today and I'm so relieved! I have a few minutes before I run to my dance classes (after two whole weeks!) so I decided I'll show you another beauty. Well, two of them. This is a mani I wore to my three days of fun times with Tolkien society back in the beginning of March and it was a mani i didn't get sick of, until it chipped off my nails.
Lynnderella Connect the Dots was a wonderful birthday present from my swap buddy. In case any of you still don't know who she is, My Lucid Bubble is her blog and she's awesome. It's a fact, just like gravity.
O.P.I. Suzi Says Feng Shui is probably my favourite O.P.I. to wear. At least ATM and for a few months. I've worn it several times now and that happens so rarely with all my untrieds, it's really saying something. It's a perfect blue for me right now.
So naturally I put them together for a few days away from everything nail polish related. I don't know if it's just me, but I always dread being stuck in a place without anything to change my polish and being so sick of what's on my nails it makes me want to scratch it off. Ever get that feeling? So I always search for something awesome and this certainly was an awesome combination.
When I love a mani as much as I loved this one I always feel I don't do it justice with the photos. Connect the Dots is without a doubt the most unique glitter I've ever seen and wore in my life. It's incredible. The pictures are with two coats of CtD, except on my little finger where there's only one. This is insane. All the different sized glitter, hexs, little stripes ... and the tiniest shimmer, visible to naked eye even if very gently. It's amazing. I loved it so so much. I can't wait to layer it over green, muahaha!
Two pictures of Suzi Says Feng Shui alone
This one is a part of O.P.I. Hong Kong Collection for Spring 2010 and it was a lemming of mine. A smaller one, but still. The big wish from this collection was Jade is the new black, of course. And although I freakishly adore that one too Suzi says Feng Shui kinda stole the crown from it. Blue over green, Ulmiel, really?!?! I actually wouldn't mind having both orange colours from this collection either ... all in all a great one done by O.P.I. This dusty blue is a stunner for sure. I'm not sure about my photos, my camera kills the dustiness a bit and forgive me for the reflection, but it's the most colour accurate I could get them. Two really easy coats, the formula is perfect.
A win win mani for me. I didn't grow tired of it. At all. Thanks, Kris! For both of them, actually! :)
Do you have any Lynnderellas? Do you get the hype around them or are you not as impressed by them? Oh, what's your favourite blue? :)
Thank you for reading!
