Summer Shimmer...

I hope everyone's summer is going well! Today I bring you some shimmer with Nicole by OPI Rich in Spirit from the spring 2011 Liquid Metals collection and OPI Simmer & Shimmer from the Burlesque Collection.

NOPI Rich in Spirit is an awesome metallic silvery sky blue foil with a huge punch of shimmer. This gorgeous color reminds me of the blue sheen seen on the ice from the movie "March of the Penguins". Application of this is a dream (no streaks)!!

In anticipation of the Muppet's collection glitters (I'm sooo excited) I felt the need to add some sparkle to Rich in Spirit with OPI Simmer & Shimmer which has been compared to the coveted OPI Absolutely Alice. Much like how Absolutely Alice has a mixture of blue and gold, Simmer & Shimmer is made up of a much lighter blue and a more copper gold. There is also some orange, sliver, and pink glitter mixed in. It is a complex blend of color with a smooth application. I used tape to create an arrow/chevron effect for some interest.

Disclosure: This lacquer was purchased by The Lacquer Factor.
