Here's OPI I Brake For Manicures. A tricky little bastard of a polish to photograph. It's a dark, vampy, dusty grape. My camera wanted to make it look almost-black every time I tried to take a picture of it, but trust me...it has a special quality to it that makes it look smoky and a little mysterious. In truth, I haven't been this in love with a vampy since last winter's China Glaze Naughty But Nice, which I didn't really document. My mom was in the hospital when that collection was a thing, so I didn't have time to photograph them as I wore them. Anyhow, this polish is special among vampies. Really. And the formula was really superb. Two coats here.
I can't complain about any of the polishes I picked up from Touring America. I love them all (see I Eat Mainely Lobster here, Are We There Yet? here, Suzi Takes the Wheel here, A-Taupe the Space Needle here and Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window here). Although most of these colors are pretty standard hues, each one of them seems to have that special somethin'-somethin' that makes them indispensable for a polish lover.
Also, the winner of my giveaway was a reader named Charlotte. I've already e-mailed her and she e-mailed me back to confirm her win, so that's that. Her heart's desire is California Trooper, MacArthur Park and Poppy, all colors I love. So congratulations, Charlotte! And to everyone else, thanks for entering. I'll probably do another AA giveaway to celebrate the end of the semester (which seems so far away right now, but it's really not; I'm yearning for December).
That's it for today. Opinions on I Brake For Manicures?
