i love paint

Monday, February 15, 2010

ever since i got engaged {a whopping 1 month and 1 day ago}, i discovered that i must keep my nails painted at ALL times since i have certain individuals looking at my rock candy--haha!!
i know this won't last too long, but with all the attention my hands have been getting...thank you jeff... i have to keep my nails in manicure form, which takes more time than one would think.
i used to be the el-cheapo person who skimped by on inexpensive nail polish from Wal-Mart, Target, etc., but now I have discovered just why people pay so much for OPI and I've become a bit obsessed.
my nails are now painted with "Elephantastic Pink" and i just love it... plus, they've been painted dark grey, purple, and red and i needed a bright color to make me look a bit less pale in these harsh winter months!!
P.S. if you have a Sun Tan City near you, all OPI colors are 20% off right now, too!! =)

what's your favorite shade???

  1. I've never seen that shade of pink before. I'll have to look for it. I love Bubble Bath by OPI and Ballet Slippers by Essie.

    I was the same when I got engaged and always had to have my nails painted!

  3. I remembered when I discovered the same thing about nail polish. A couple extra $$ are well worth it. You're a Pisa Work is wonderful for summer!

  4. I used to be the girl that skimped on polish as well. But no more!! I was always like 'why would you pay that much for nail polish, it's all the same.' Um, no it's not!! OPI takes the cake! I love that color, so feminine!

  6. adorable color! I also used to buy inexpensive nail polish but it is worth it to get the better types. I recently got a great set of coach nail polish for Christmas. Who knew coach made nail polish?? It is fab.

  7. I am a HUGE OPI fan and agree it is worth the extra $. Some beauty supply stores sell the OPI trunk for $20 to store all your polish and nail supplies in and its really nice!

  10. A great color to try for your wedding, if don't do french is OPI sweetheart. It is a very neutral color with a hint of pink! And, it is great for everyday, since it matches everything!

  15. I love OPI, but I prefer Finger Paints. It's sold at Sally's Beauty Supply. (I live in Ohio.) I've tried numerous types of polish and Finger Paints are THE best. Also, top if with Out The Door and you are set!

  16. #1: I'll be getting some OPI for sale at STC
    #2: I keep a rotation of several colors. I looove Lincoln Park After Dark, Bastille my Heart, Apricot Ya Cheating, and Plugged in Purple (my new fave)
    #3: Bubble Bath is a go-to nude. I'll likely wear it for our wedding.

  17. Love this when I went ring shopping I got my nails done before hand so I could see how beautiful it would look on pretty manicured nails!

  18. Ohh I love OPI and I just painted my nails last night actually with a pink shade similar to this, yay!

  19. I was totally the same when when I got engaged. I was so good about it, then I totally slacked off a few months later. I love that color though, I have a similar OPI color and I just call it my "Barbi pink."

  20. Oh I love that color! I've had a craving for some new nail polish lately...this might go on my list!

    My personal favorite OPI color is Cha-Ching Cherry. It holds a special place in my heart because it's what I had on my toes for my wedding. My sweet friend LeRae got me a bottle as a gift for helping her with her wedding a few months later. LOVE IT!
