Today I have two polishes by Nicole by OPI from the Carrie Underwood collection. I wasn't super-wowed by these when I saw pictures of them at first because most of the colors seemed not that unusual...but they grew on me. However, somebody out there liked them, because when I went looking for them, the entire display was cleaned out except for one bottle. I had to go shopping elsewhere! :/ One of the colors I picked up was Sweet Daisy.
Shall I tell you why I got this one? Because you all don't expect to see me wearing this color. Admit it...you are SHOCKED to see dusty peachy-apricot on these nails! It's okay. So am I. But once I got Sweet Daisy on, I absolutely loved it. The creme formula was fabulous. I used 3 thin coats and application was great...but as you can see, Mr. You-Know-Who was still peeking through. The pest...
The other polish I got from the line is Southern Charm. I mean, it's totally me, right? Southern...check. Charming...well CHECK! Right?? :P This color was my favorite of all the Carries when I first started seeing swatches popping up. It's one of those ever-present neutrals we are seeing in droves right now...it's a nude creme that looks slightly pink on me. I love it.
When I was little, I always loved the way the models' fingernails looked on The Price Is Right. And their shoes were the same color as their nails! I think I've found that loved-of-old shade. I hope I get to play the Cliff Hangers game too!! :)
I used 3 coats of Southern Charm as well. It's really strange...I used this polish a couple of weeks ago, and I had THE streakiest time with it...it was just a mess. Well, this time, I had no trouble at all, so I'm chalking the first experience up to sleepiness...bad lighting...allergies?
Have you all picked up any of the Carrie Underwood collection? Are you still loving the neutral thing? And most importantly, what do you use for sinus and allergy woes?
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! <3
