Too Haute...

I'm a little late to the party!  The ULTA exclusive OPI Too Haute Too Handle collection was released at the beginning of the month.  Don't fret though, you can still find this collection in most stores.  The four shades of this collection are: The Flowers Are Blue-Ming!, Hot Fun In The Summer Lime, Sand On Your Own Feet, and Pack Your Booty Shorts.

Two coats were used for each lacquer.  Formula wise OPI The Flowers Are Blue-Ming! was a little thick but not unmanageable.  The formula for OPI Sand On Your Own Feet was slightly brush stroke prone but still easy to work with.  If any of these look familiar, that's because they are dupes of shades from the NOPI Justin Bieber collection.  Have you or will you be picking up any of these?

Purple creme


Bonus mani!!  I've been wanting to try a Saran wrap mani for a while now but couldn't pick a combo that spoke to me.  I knew when I saw these two shades together I found what I was looking for!   To create this type of mani simply paint on your base and wait for it to dry.  Next paint one thin layer directly over your base.  Then quickly sponge with a piece of crinkled up Saran wrap.  This works best if you layer and sponge one nail at a time and also if you have your Saran wrap pre-cut and crinkled.

  11. So pretty! I absolutely love the gold and purple combo!! However, I really don't think my local Ulta carries a good stock of OPI polishes - unless they're hidden! I can only ever find the NOPI or old OPI shades on sale.

    1. You should try some local nail salons! Although, that won't help with this collection but you can usually find hard to find OPI shades that way.
