OPI Suzi & the 7 Dusseldorfs

Our next stop on the German tour with OPI is Suzi & the 7 Dusseldorfs. S&7D's is a beautiful purple shimmer with blue undertones. I also picked up some pink in there on my first coat. I must say I LOVE PURPLE polish so I love this one as well. The formula was a little watery if I remember correctly but it was pretty easy to work with. I used two coats but I think I should have used 3 to add to its depth and dimension.

2014 Goes to Russia

So I was wrong yesterday when I blabbed that the winter Olympics were going to be held in Germnay in 2014. After some research I found out it's actually might be Russia. So I apologize to you, Russia! Now what is from Germany is the color I have on my nails right now. OPI Danke-Shiny Red. I can't really say too much except I am in awe of this polish. Its such a gorgeous candy cane red shimmer. The formula was great. It was opaque in one coat even though I used two for my pics. The shimmer in this polish gives the red an amazing depth, I can get lost in it. What a beauty OPI! This was the best $8 I've spent.

The Painted Pony Giveaway

Check this out!

The Painted Pony: MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!: OK people I have been on here for a little while and I am ready to kick it up a notch with my very own first giveaway ever!! I have nothin...

OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons

Good day to all! Did anyone watch the closing ceremony to the Olympics last night. I got through some of it but I passed out midway. It was...meh. Some shows were ok. I do love Russel Brand though. I hear the winter Olympics are going to be in Germany. Is that correct? I may have been a little overtired & delirious so I can't be sure. Either way, Today I have for you Don't Pretzel My Buttons from OPI's Germany Collection released this month. It's a honey beige creme. I wasn't sure how this one was gonna look with my skintone but I must say, I really like this color. It kind of reminds me of the silly putty that used to come in the little red egg. It started our a little streaky and uneven but it leveled out nicely by the 3rd coat. Its topped with one coat of Seche Vite so I could get to bed.

Mariah Carey & OPI

OPI Announces Collaboration with Multi-Platinum Selling International Superstar Mariah Carey
LOS ANGELES – August 10, 2012 – OPI Products Inc. announced a collaboration today with multiple Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum selling recording artist Mariah Carey. A five-time Grammy Award winning global superstar with over 200 million records sold worldwide and 18 Billboard No. 1 singles (more than any solo artist in history), Carey will be the inspiration for a line of OPI limited edition nail lacquers that will launch January 2013.
OPI is thrilled to work with Mariah, an industry icon who loves nails and considers lacquer one of her favorite accessories,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “With her magnetic personality both on and off the stage, Mariah serves as a great inspiration for beautiful, bold colors.”
About Mariah Carey:
With a distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting and producing talent, Carey has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognized with five Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard’s “Artist of the Decade” Award, the World Music Award for “World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium,” and BMI’s “Icon Award” to name a few. Mariah has written seventeen out of her eighteen Billboard No. 1 singles and has two consecutive and unparalleled Billboard “Song of the Decade” titles “One Sweet Day” (with Boyz II Men) and “We Belong Together,” further marking her massive presence on the charts since her 1990 song debut “Vision of Love.” Mariah became the second artist in history and the first female performer to have a song debut at No. 1 with “Fantasy” (1995), the groundbreaking collaboration with O.D.B. of the innovative rap group Wu-Tang Clan. Carey’s original holiday classic “All I Want For Christmas is You” redefined its place in pop culture as one of the greatest holiday hits of all time when it reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 2011, seventeen years after its debut. Mariah’s influential and stellar contribution to the music industry spans multiple genres and is showcased through a multifaceted hit catalogue as well as a long list of diverse collaborations.
Carey's ongoing impact transcends the music industry and has left an indelible imprint upon the world at large. She recently made a substantial mark in film with her critically acclaimed role as a social worker in “Precious,” the 2009 film based on the novel “Push,” by Sapphire. A Congressional Award recipient, Carey has generously donated her time and energy to a range of domestic and international philanthropic causes near to her heart including The Fresh Air Fund/Camp Mariah (a retreat where inner-city children explore career development), Save the Music Foundation and Make-a-Wish Foundation among several others.
Mariah is currently in the studio, writing, recording and executive-producing her next album for Island Def Jam Music Group; the lead single "Triumphant (Get ‘Em)," is now available on iTunes. Recently Carey made worldwide headlines with the exciting news that she will join the judges’ panel of FOX’s American Idol when the series returns in 2013.

Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI...I DO!!!

So sorry for being away for so long. I need to get back on track with my blogging. I may not have many followers but I am eternally grateful for those I do have. THANK YOU! You guys keep me going.
This past spring OPI came out with th Holland Collection which included this beauty. I admit I do have a soft spot for purple polish. Okay, okay I love it. Dutch Ya Just Love OPI is a dusty purple with a hidden gold shimmer. The shimmer is a little more visible in real life. My pics did it no justice. Now, formula wise, this baby was easy peasy! It glided on my nails with no pooling, dragging, streaking...just even and beautiful. Two coats and I was done.

Did you get any of the Holland Collection? If so, which was your favorite?
