I have a slight obsession with nail polish … ok, maybe it’s more than a slight obsession. It might be a big obsession, as in I have a shelf in my linen/beauty closet at home dedicated just to nail polish, polish removers, nail files, buffers and such — all lined up like pretty little gems. At last count (a couple of weeks ago) I had 77 bottles of polish in a multitude of shades ranging from girlie pink, greys (love a grey nail), bright blues and hot corals (my summer go-to shades), minty greens, deep red, purple and navy, shimmery finishes, matte finishes, ultra-shiny … and I’m not counting my base and top coats. They’re in their own category, obviously. That was the final count after I dug out about 25 bottles to give away. Like I said … a slight obsession.
I also love this time of year with the seasons about to change … it’s time to start thinking about trading in my bright, neon-hued summer shades for richer fall shades. When I saw OPI‘s new fall Swiss Collection Nail Lacquer, I was drooling over the colours: Yodel Me on My Cell (a greeny-blue), Glitzerland (shimmery gold), Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous (a pretty pewter), Cuckoo for this Color (deep, dark green) and Color So Hot It Berns (a warm red).
Now, it’s going to be hard for me to pick out my fave from this stunning group, but my top three would be Yodel Me on My Cell (it’s the perfect hit of rich blue colour for fall), Color So Hot It Berns (my new fall red) and Glitzerland (it’s time for a pretty gold metallic nail to make a comeback). They’re available at salons in August and I can’t wait to add them to my collection.
