Winters by Oopsie Daisies

Hey everybody!  Lately, I've been in the mood for a new white polish.  You know, one that doesn't make you look like you had a run-in with Liquid Paper.  I did some looking around and found Winters, from the Earthbound Collection, by indie label Oopsie Daisies.  This is a seriously cute polish, and I was drawn to the glitter colors right away.  I tend to like cool...dare I say?...wintry colors.  And this color definitely conjures up images of ice and snow and evergreen trees and being snuggled up somewhere warm drinking something choco-tastic.


Oopsie Daisies Winters

The Earthbound Collection is a tribute to the classic Super Nintendo role-playing game of the same name.  How cool is that??  I never played Earthbound, but I played another 1990's RPG every chance I could, a PC game called Quest for Glory.  I know how attached you can get to those great 90's games, when the graphics were kinda lousy but the storylines were so fun, so I think it's terrific how somebody took inspiration from her favorite video game! Winters is  described as "inspired by, of course, the town of Winters. A white creme base with blue and green glitter and sporadic pops of purple to represent the elusive sea creature, Nessie."

Winter always was my favorite season.

Wait.  What?  Did you say "Nessie?"  I thought so.  And that's all it took.  Anybody who knows me knows that my dearest improbable wish is for The Loch Ness Monster to be real.  My second one is for somebody to invent a machine that records your dreams in Blu-ray format.  Anyway, the purple hex glitter representing Nessie had me throwing Winters in my shopping basket before you could say "They found Bigfoot!"

Green, blue, and purple hex glitter!!  And it does NOT look like Liquid Paper! :)

I used 3 coats of Winters in the photos with one coat of CND Air Dry.  The application was smooth, and I didn't have to fish around for glitter.  No streaking either...not a good idea in winter anyway! :P

Winters bottle shot

I was having a little difficulty capturing the vibrancy of the glitter, but the bottle shot comes closest.

Trees, snow, water...and NESSIE!

This polish is adorable, and I can't wait to try more from Oopsie Daisies!  And how cute is that bottle??  You can find the lovely Winters and the entire Earthbound Collection in Oopsie Daisies' Etsy store.  So check them out! :)

Now I really want to play some Quest for Glory.

Have a great evening! :)
