I took this picture with flash because there was no sun, but look at it. This is a seriously sexy, velvety red.
I love the inside of the case! Seriously, how cute is that?
I'm Not Really a Waitress is from the Hollywood collection of 1999. I actually own one other polish from that collection, Tinsel Town Taupe. The color is a really beautiful, deep, blue-based red with prominent shimmer that makes it look almost metallic. It has this understated sparkle in bright light that almost reminds me of like...car paint? I don't know. Like that finish that some cars have that's sort of sparkly or shimmery (any car people reading this right now are probably rolling their eyes but it's TRUE). And also the formula was FLAWLESS. OPI mini bottles are very tiny and have very tiny brushes, but even working with that this was so easy to apply. I was shocked. It was smooth and buttery, and on the first coat it didn't come out looking berry-toned like a lot of OPI reds can (I'm looking at you, Vodka and Caviar); you get the bottle color on the first coat. I used two coats here. Sadly the very next morning after I put this on I had to go buy new skinny jeans, and I somehow broke a nail off on one of the MANY TAGS that H&M jeans have on them. But even though my pinky nail was jacked up, I still rocked this color. Because that is how beautiful it is. If you're a red lover I feel like you can't go without this. I'm surprised I had never bought it. I will probably buy myself a full-sized bottle, because as I mentioned ,this is core, and you can find it pretty much everywhere OPI is sold.
This weekend was pretty nice even though Ben is gone. On Saturday I spent some time with my dad in the afternoon and evening, and I shopped for jeans in the morning and hit Sephora (because...who am I kidding?). Last night I went to a Super Bowl party at a friend's place, and at some point my friend and I switched tops (I gave him my hoodie and he gave me his Peyton Manning Colts jersey). And then because I can't resist COSTUMING MYSELF, I did some little eye black [eyeliner] under my eyes. It's at a bizarre angle because I had been drinking, and for some reason at that moment I felt like it looked right. But WHATEVER it was fine.
It was a good time and I'm glad I went. I learned a little bit about football because my friend Dave was very patiently explaining everything to me and I was actually starting to understand (I have never been a football person, and I think it's because there are a lot of weird rules that I just don't get--baseball, though? Come at me). I didn't really care who won, but I went in ready to cheer on the Broncos. Clearly that didn't go well. But it was still a good time.
That's all for today. I hope everyone had nice weekends, too. And I've asked this before, but...what's your favorite red nail polish? I think right now mine is China Glaze Igniting Love, but this OPI is just...perfection, isn't it?
