Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

I've wanted $OPI 212 for as long as I knew it existed. I even planned to swoop it up on a business trip to NYC this past summer, at the grand opening of the Sephora Times Square 212 store! Oh best made plans... I ended up delayed in LaGuardia for endless hours instead. :(

But look! I have it, finally! Hooray!! And it is every bit as magnificent as I thought it would be! I had been playing in some loose red eyeshadow earlier, thus the lovely red tint stuck in the grooves around my nails. :) Pardon my mess!

It's smoky blackish brown with a lovely strong gold shimmer. There are holo glittah bits as well as coppery looking flakies!!

I saw the flakies more nekkid-like when I was taking off this mani and I think they are actually more pink. But amidst the slurry they turn copper-reddish. So cool! A year ago I don't know if I would have gone nuts for this mix but I think there's some magic in that bottle. If you are waffling about 212, GET IT! It's limited edition, after all. :D

I just got this myself, and meant to get it months ago! It's sitting in front of me now, waiting for a sunny day to swatch. Gorgeous! I'm glad I went for it. :)

I got this a few months ago and I love it, though it was a toughie to get off! ;)

Nicole - I'm glad you got it, too!
scarlettholly - true story!! Do you have a scrubby pot yet? It's a plastic tub filled with acetone and scrubby plastic teeth things. You put your finger in it and rub it against the scrubbers to get polish off. OMG - works so well with glitters and flakies. The one I use I get at Target for about 3 bucks, I think. I believe it's called Studio Tools and is in a white plastic tub. Definitely check it out if you haven't yet! :D

I love this polish. I had to have it too! Looks lovely on you. I love all the different colors in it.

That looks beautiful!

oooh, great hint on the scrubby pot. Will add it to my list! :)

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
