Today I tried out OPI's Funkey Dunkey from the OPI Shrek Forever After Collection. It is a true purple, a little on the warm side, not a cool blue purple. But no matter how, my camera refuses to capture the warm tones of this lovely creamy purple! It is turning out like a cool toned blue-ish purple. The overlay stroke effects I used in the above pictures (ie, the outline color I used for the words) is a much much truer reflection of the actual colour. I think this also happens when I take pictures of my MUFE 92 eyeshadow. BAH!! And Kim also voiced the same frustrations in taking pictures of purple nail polish.

So I went to Scrangie and grabbed her swatch of Funky Dunkey to see if the true color is captured. Here it is.
I think it is the same, the picture makes the actual color in the bottle look bluer! Which it is not in real life. Or is there something wrong with my eyes. :(
Oh well. This is a beautiful purple! After taking these pictures, I have a sudden craving to apply China Glaze's Four Leaf Clover instead. Haha... and my nails are getting a little long, I might chop them off soon later this week. :p
I know there are a couple of entries (such as the giveaway results etc) to be posted, but I am a little lazy and way too busy with work right now to fiddle with the logistics. Winners for both giveaways will only be announced on Wed or later on in the week.
Random Shrek Cup which you can purchase from the popcorn combo at Golden Village theatres.
That's all, and thanks for reading.
