I is for I Don't Give a Rotterdam

 
Hi lovelies!! ...a little aggressive name for a polish, huh? Well, from the moment the challenge began I knew I wanted to wear I Don't Give a Rotterdam for letter I. At first I felt like this shade didn't go well with my skintone, but after wearing it for two days I felt a lot more comfortable with it. Besides, it's not like that would stop me from wearing a polish. When I like a polish, I wear it. I don't care if it doesn't look good on me. I'm stubborn like that about nail polish! :P
 
I Don't Give a Rotterdam by OPI is a blueish grey with very fine gold shimmer. The formula is thin, so I applied three coats. I wore it alone for two days and then I felt inspired by the bird logo silhouette from Aerie on this old sweatshirt I own and I thought I'd try to draw it. I often don't draw on my nails because when I finish drawing I feel like no one really understands what I supposedly did.
But....I got to keep on trying so that maybe someday I'll be better at it!
On my ring finger I did something simpler. A branch with leaves haha! For the nail art I used How I Matt Your Mother by Catrice (the darker shade) and Infinity Band by Sally Hansen Diamond Strength (gold).
 
I liked the end result and I hope you did too! I'm very curious to see what my ladies from the challenge are going to present. This letter is not predictable at all! Come with me to look at their posts, just click on the inlinkz below.
 
Have a great day :)
 





ESPAÑOL:


Hola chicas! Como están? Desde que comenzó el reto sabía que quería usar este esmalte por primera vez para la letra I: I Don't Give a Rotterdam. Es un gris azulado con shimmer dorado muy fino. En la botella luce lindísimo. Cuando me lo puse la verdad no me encantó, sentí como que el color no iba bien con mi tono de piel pero al pasar los días creo que me fui acostumbrando. Cabe mencionar que soy tan caprichosa con los esmaltes que no me importa que no me luzca el color! Cuando quiero un esmalte, lo quiero y punto! jijiji
 
I Don't Give a Rotterdam de OPI es de formula delgada y me tomo tres capas lograr la opacidad. Después de usarlo solito dos días se me ocurrió hacerle un nail art inspirado en el pajarito logo de la marca de ropa Aerie, lo han visto? Esta linda la silueta y la intenté imitar de una sudadera viejisima que tengo :P Espero que si la hayan captado!!! Casi nunca me aviento a hacer dibujos porque cuando termino siento que no se entienden, pero necesito practicar si no, nunca me van a salir bien jajaja...
También hice una ramita con sus hojas. Para el nail art usé 890 How I Matt Your Mother de Catrice (el tono oscuro) y 504 Infinity Band de Sally Hansen Diamond Strength (dorado) que me regaló mi queridísima amiga Linda ;)
 
Espero que lo hayan disfrutado!
