Just wanted to start by saying a big welcome to all my new followers and thank you for following my little blog! And a huge thanks to all of you who have been there with me from the beginning, I'm so honoured to have you all here with me. Thank you for supporting me and for reading my nonsense!
Yes, Karen said in her description of my blog that I do a lot of swatches.. and, it's true, I do! :) I love doing this, I love trying out new nail polishes and.. I love their finish, their perfection... It's great when you discover a great colour and the feeling of being in an awe watching it freshly painted on you nails! :) (OK, all right, all right: I admit it: I'm a nail polish junkie! :D)
So, about the same feeling I've had while doing my nails with OPI Not Like The Movies... ! Such an incredible polish!!!!!! I can't believe I've been having this baby in my stash since March, and only tried it once, on a nail, with a single coat and thought it wasn't so great... well, with 3 coats it is! I guess I was a little upset because nailetc sent me a mini bottle instead of the normal sized bottle I've paid for! Even though I pre-ordered it! (such a nonsense this pre-order thing!... I'll avoid nasty words to describe the "concept", but... I really did not appreciate it. I'm reeeeeally glad they don't do it any more!)
So back to the polish: it's a very, very beautiful green/purple duochrome, on a (quite sheer) metallic grey base. The wear and the drying time are remarkable! The look is soft and really, really wearable. I've actually worn this at the office, and got some male compliments about it (!). My male colleagues usually only like the true reds for a nail polish, and sometimes corals. They are absolutely not fans of green and blues. But this one really captured their attention: "OMG it changes colour !!!" :D LOL
Though I've tried hard, I don't think my pictures reflect the real beauty of this one...
So, here I'm wearing 3 coats of OPI Not Like the Movies + 1 coat of NailTek Quicken top coat:
And, in the end... THE Star: Ghitzou ! - relaxing! :)
