Hi! So I was tagged by the lovely almost famous to do this tag. Which is cool, because I have been thinking about doing something similar the last couple of days. I was thinking more of doing a top 10, because it is so difficult to choose just 5!
But I try, and here is the picture. Apologies I didn't take the higher quality single shots, but I think you have seen most of them before in my haul/ review/ overview posts. Which reminds me to get back to my nail polish colour overview series!!! I stopped at Part 2~~
Ok this is the LEAST fave. A regret buy. This is Sephora by OPI nail colour, "I NEED SPACE". Reasons why I don't like it:
- Super sheer
- no matter how many coats you put it on it is still sheer and streaky
- not a suitable nude/ cream color on me
I am just not a fan of sheer or super metallic shades. I can take the occasional super glittery colors for effect though.
In no particular order
From L to R: OPI Black Oynx, Chanel Blue Satin, Sephora by OPI Metro Chic, OPI Melanga Wine, OPI Bare it in Trafaglar Square
I think I have a good collection of staple, classic colours in the 5. The perfect BLACK, Blue Black, the perfect 'mysterious' grey purple brown colour, RED, and of course NUDE. And Except for Blue Satin they are all in cream finish, which is my fave.
I guess not everyone will think Black or Blue nails are classic nails, but IMO, they are. Black can just make your outfit look either a bit more chic or edgier. If I am wearing something girly I want black nails to show that I can still kick a$$. LOL.
And Melanga Wine is just the perfect shade of RED. I don't wear red too often these days because I don't like how they 'scratch' and leave red skid marks over papers I am working on etc. But Melanga Wine is like an old friend. If I want red, I always go back to this colour.
Metro Chic is quite a often talked about colour in the beauty community. A good dupe for this color if it's hard to get for some of you (since the Singapore Sephora doesnt carry this series) is OPI You Don't Know Jacques which I also own. They are lmost exactly the same.
I can't resist here, so I must also name honourable mentions to do my huge collection justice, but I won't post pictures of them here:
- OPI Done out in Deco
- CG Secret Periwinkle
- OPI Do you Lilac it
- OPI Parlez Vous OPI
- OPI Let Them Eat Ricecake
- OPI My Private Jet
- MAC On the Prowl
- CG For Audrey
- Barry M No 295 Turquoise
I have been wearing the lilacs, and blues more often lately.
So... I tag (I am not surprised if some of you have been tagged already)
And everyone else who would like to do this tag, I would like to know I am not the only nail polish junkie out here!!
