Orange You Obsessed ?

Orange you happy?
...I sure am!
The last few days, I have been stressing and slaving over school and work, before my 2 week Olympic break

Since I felt like I was about to burst some brain, I figured it was healthy and necessary for me to step outside for some fresh air & perhaps purchase a

As I perused the shops near my neighbourhood, I saw a nail polish that immediately caught my attention.

It was bright, it was loud & it was ORANGE!
A wacky colour, I know. But, it tugged at my curiosity.
I had to try the polish!
Just one stroke of orange, and I knew I needed it in my life.

OPI "Don't Be Koi With Me"
{Ha!, I the name}
Beautiful, Bright orange
No shimmer
Easy application
Long lasting {hasn't chipped in 4 days}
I would describe the colour as a "koi fish-orange"
{hence, the name}
It certainly has a reddish tinge.

Ah, Yes! Thanks to one my my most favourite blogger friends, Tessa, I realized I was likely attracted to this colour because it bares a striking resemblance to my LOVE, Hermes. Oh, Hermes! 

Although OPI polishes tend to be pricier than other brands, I do feel the quality is worth it.
The polish applies like a dream & leaves a streak-free finish.
I am horrible at painting my own nails.
{colour ends up all over my fingers}
But, using OPI polishes, my result looks purrty & semi-professional. :)

I did not use base or top coat, and the polish has lasted 4 days{& counting}.

The colour is so bright & wacky.
Makes me smile as I work & look down at my fingers.

eep! These mini oranges are super mini!
...om nom nom!

These orange "pick-me-ups" have been brightening my day.
So, my lovelies, what has been brightening your day?

Those bracelets look so elegant. The polish is really different, something I personally would never wear, like pink or yellow - those colors just make me look ewww lol. I don't own any OPI polishes 'cause their so pricey, but because you say you didn't use a base or coat & they've lasted 4 days without chipping I'm now going to purchase a polish from them. Thanx hun <3

ko0ty said...

I hate painting my nails too... well the worst part is removing it PROPERLY, with nail polish remover. Something I always neglect to do so I have chipped nails for like 2 weeks. Yuck!

The orange is gorgeous btw!

ooo I love that pic with your macbook. I would never think to do orange polish (i'm more neutral and muted) but it looks fab on you!! Maybe I'll be bold enough to try that in the summer.

Ps - yes baby brothers are adorable! I'm going to post mine soon cuz I miss him so darn much. He lives 8 hours away : (

oOoO love that color! :D

Have you ever tried Sinful Colors? I'm in LOVE with their nail polishes. :D

You should check out: http://www.head2toebeauty.com

They have cheaper OPI, China Glaze, and lots more nail polishes (plus a ton of other stuff!)

My friend got me hooked on that site. She got a package in the mail with a TON of polishes and I just couldn't resist making an equally huge order. I'll have to post about it sometime when I get a chance to take pictures.

RYC: Oh wow that's cool! (^_^) I have a western name too. My Japanese name is Mai but my English name is Nicole. :)

hahaha i love the theme of this post :) so cute. what's funny is I also just recently discovered my own stash of OPI polishes (turned out a cousin gave me a whole bag last year, when I wasn't into doing nails yet) and I found them 2 days ago, I was like WTF cool!

i LOVE eating those oranges too! i always pack a few with me and it's a great snack to have on the go :D

thanks for visiting my blog :) about the R&R cosmetics, they're pricey but worth it for the most part! i like their packaging a lot, very pretty and sturdy as well. not to mention the size of the blushes/powders are HUGE and much bigger than the typical size. if you get a chance to, definitely check it out :D

happy valentine's day btw! xx
