Lavender Sparkle



Hi dolls! Today is my birthday! I'm turning 30!! I'm a little bit overwhelmed!...but well, let's talk nails and polishes!
The last time I travelled I got this OPI polish at the duty free, but I must admit I have been very disappointed by it. It's name? It's Totally Fort-Worth It (ironic, huh? cause it's totally not!) it is from the Texas 2011 collection. It will catch your eye, just look at the bottle:

 

It appears to be a cute grey-lavender with pink shimmer...and it is. The problem is that you can't ever reach full opacity with this one, it is so absolutely TRANSPARENT!
So, to make this work I had to wear undies...I used Catrice's Sing: Hey Dirty Lilah!, two coats. This polish looks totally grey on the bottle. I was actually taken back when I read the name, but yep, on the nail it does look lilac. Here's a pic so you can see it on the nails. I am soo loving this polish!!!

 

And then the Fort-Worth it...I only applied one coat. It made my nails super shiny and the pink shimmer was there, but barely. Then I sponged the tips with Be-Jewelled by Sally Hansen Gem Crush.
On the ring finger of my left hand I did an accent nail with a tiny crown. I tried stamping one but I just couldn't. So I drew it, even though I suck at it! I used Cabaret by Ciaté and these little "nail diamonds". I hope you liked it! Enjoy your sunday :)
ESPAÑOL:
Hola muñecas! Hoy es mi cumpleeee! Cumplo 30 :O ... un poco abrumada por eso, pero bueno...a lo que voy! La ultima vez que viaje compré en el duty-free este esmalte de OPI llamado It's Totally Fort-Worth It (es un juego de palabras pero quiere decir que Vale Totalmente la Pena!) un nombre bastante irónico porque para mi fue una total decepción. En la botella se ve super lindo como un lavanda grisáceo con iridiscente rosado y sí lo es, pero también es super, hiper, mega...transparente. Jamás lograrás cobertura total con él.
En fin, pues entonces puse dos capas de Sing: Hey Dirty Lilah! de Catrice debajo de una capa de It's Totally Fort-Worth It, le dió mucho brillo y la iridiscencia rosada se noto pero muy, muy poco.
Encima de esto puse Be-Jewelled de Sally Hansen Gem Crush en las puntas con una esponja. En mi mano izquierda hice una accent nail en el dedo anular pintando una coronita, me quedó bastante mal pero bueno jijiji ;P
Espero les haya gustado, disfruten su domingo! :)

    1. Well I didn't like it because it just wasn't what I expected from what it looked like in the bottle. I will try to e-mail you a pic and if you like it maybe we can swatch :)
      Thanks for wishing me a happy birthday :D

  3. Me gustó tu combinación con glitter.

    No será que es un jelly? En esa colección salieron como 5 jellys.

  4. So cute and the glitters are stunning! :) I hate it when the nail polish looks so beautiful in the bottle but comes out completely transparent.
