OPI Smitten With Mittens

I'm starting to feel in the holiday frame of mind, so I pulled out a favorite sparkly red of yesteryear, OPI Smitten With Mittens.

This one is from the 2009 OPI holiday collection, and I remember it being super popular.  It's a pretty close dupe for China Glaze Ruby Pumps, but less sparkly.  As you can see from the second picture, there's gold glitter in the bottle that shows up as red on the nail beneath the blue-based red jelly base.  The glitter looks like it's glowing in low light, and in artificial and sunlight it positively explodes with sparkle.  I used two coats here.  Also, this polish has probably the cutest name ever.

I wore Smitten With Mittens for a couple days on its own.  Then I sponged on some China Glaze Party Hearty, the epitome of holiday glitters.

On Friday a package from Modcloth arrived with presents for me from Ben.  For absolutely no reason. My fiance spoils me.  This is one of the things he got me.
Isn't it just the cutest thing ever?  The pendant is only about the size of two pennies, so it's very dainty.  He also got me this skirt, which I've been wanting for years.  

Anyway, I finished all of my papers.  They could use a quick read-through before I turn them in, but they're all finished, footnoted, with images, bibliographies, etc.  Ahead of schedule.  I have a presentation on Thursday--perfect excuse for new skirt-wearing--and then two exams next week.  Then I'm outta here.

Okay, that's all.  Anyone else pulling out the holiday polishes?

  3. When I saw that cute pendant, I immediately thought,"A Venn diagram!" It really needs to say "you & me" in the overlap -- but it's still cute, anyway!

    1. I think it's supposed to be a Venn diagram, yes. I think having it say "us" in the middle would be nice, but it might look a little cluttered with text that way because it's so small.

  6. THat does look like Ruby Pumps-thought it was for a minute! You are a very lucky girl-your fiance sounds like he treats you well which is how it should be. Am a little jealous since I'm being messaged by losers on my online dating adventure. Again I ramble-sorry!

    1. Yeah I've seen comparisons and I'm pretty sure the base is the same, Ruby Pumps just has more glitter.

      I love reading your dating stories. I hope you find someone! I know you will. There are just a lot of jerks out there.
