OPI Gouda Gouga Two Shoes

Hi Guys! I have been an absentee blogger lately. I'm sorry. I have been sick and just so freakin tired...literally. I haven't even painted my nails in days 0_o
Today I have an OPI from The Holland Collection to show you. Its Gouda Gouda Two Shoes which is your grandma's mauvey pink with a hint of golden shimmer. At first, I hated this color. I would NEVER even think of wearing something like this. Now...I kinda like it. It's delicate and femenine. Does that mean I am getting old?! Nah!!!!! I am just able to appreciate the more grown-up side of polish. I still don't FEEL like a "grown-up." (I am 1 year shy of 30) Anywho! Back to the polish. I think I used 2 coats for these pics and topped it with a coat of quick dry TC. I have been using the ProFx TC lately as my Seche Vite is getting really low. The formula was okay. No real issues. I do like its subtle shimmer on the nail though I do wish it was a little more prominent.

Do you see what I mean about the shimmer?
I didn't watermark my photos since I didn't post from my regular computer but I might go back and edit later. What is your opinion of watermarking?


  1. This colour was my very first OPI! I love the brushes in OPIs, so I loved it automatically.

    I reckon always watermark - I have a story why, too! Some facebook page (you know the ones - a bunch of teenage girls that steal pictures off the internet and say "like or you hate your mum" etc) stole one of my manicures off weheartit. They were of Chuck Taylors, and got them the most likes they ever had. My friend found the post and told me about it - I was so mad! They refused to give me credit, so I reported them to facebook and wrote all over the post that they were MY nails! It was even worse because they weren't watermarked - I had edited the picture on my blog to have a watermark but you can't delete photos off weheartit, which sucks. They got about 80,000 likes off it before facbook deleted it. Meanwhile, I had less than 2000 views on my blog... it wasn't fun. But it all worked out for the better, because I got up to 50 likes on my facebook page from spamming their page and then facebook gave me advertising credit! And now my blog's actually getting noticed!
    Wow, that took ages to write - sorry it's so long! But that's my story :)

    1. Thanks for your advice. I'm sorry that happened to you. I hate the fact that thee are e-pirates out there. By the way...I LOVE your blog <3

  2. I also try to watermark most of my pics on my blog. For that same reason Jessie said. I had heard of the same situation happening over and over again. But back to your post. I love this neutral color,


I love to read all your comments, just keep it positive <3
