More Nudes.

HI guys so I have just found this post that I wrote weeks ago and realised that i hadn't published it. So here is my second installment of Wedding Nudes and I have four more OPI lovelies to show you. 

(You Callin' Me A Lyre?, Stranger Tides, I Vant To Be A-Loan Star, Care To Danse?)

These polishes are from different OPI collections and were bought specifically for my friends wedding which is next week has been already. And these are Care To Danse? and You Callin' Me A Lyre? from the New York City Ballet Collection. I Vant To Be A-Loan Star from the Texas Collection and Stranger Tides from the Pirates Of The Caribbean On Stranger Tides Collection. Now I know that I have called this post 'More Nudes' and I know that two of these polishes cant really be classed as nudes, because – well they arnt nudes are they. But I am a colourful girl and when I paint my nails I paint them to be noticed, so these light, airy colours are practically nude to me!

As always I cannot fault OPI. These polishes are a lovely texture, they are easy to work with, they dry well and even, and look amazing!

Both You Callin' Me A Lyre? and Care To Danse? are the nudest nudes I have ever seen. Because of this I would probably not use them as a straight colour (because the more coats you put on your nail the thicker the nail looks) but they are fantastic for French polish. I have been looking for the perfect pink to be used in a French polish since the beginning of my nail time! And I have now found it in You Callin' Me A Lyre?. Because this pink is so sheer it does not discolour the white tips, which has plagued me with other 'so called' French polishes. Care To Danse? is also great for a French base, and with it's lilac tint instead of pink it works wonderfully for cool toned ladies. 

I Vant To Be A-Loan Star is a beautiful pearlised light blue. It looks so chic on the nails with just a hint of colourful fun. I have tried brands in the past that have tried to create a colour like this but instead it has ended up looking like Tipex toothpaste (which of course was fine when you were 13 and wanted to paint your nails in school, however not so great …..ehem a few years later).

Stranger Tides is what I would like to describe as a matt Pistachio Green. It is a very unusual colour and I love it. It is not garish and bright, its subtle and grown up, and the more I look at it I think 'if that's what grown up is, maybe I could be grown up too one day'.

So here you have them, all laid bare on the table for your viewing pleasure. And when you see them next they will be on blushing bride and bridesmaids hands.

See you soon.
