Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

Sephora by OPI, or $OPI, as us MUAers lovingly call them, released three limited edition Halloween colors this year. This is If You've Got It, Haunt It.

I did three coats here.

It was pretty thick, but worked out okay.

This color is loaded with tiny glitter: black!, silver, holographic silver, and iridescent blue.

The effect is really stunning and unique, and I assure you that my pictures just do not do this one justice!

You may not be able to find this beauty if you don't already have it, but if you can, definitely don't hesitate to pick one up!

Here's an orange mega glitter look I did using MAC's Imperial Flower (two coats) and OPI's Extrava-vaganza (one coat).

Imperial Flower is super bright and vibrant with a lovely shimmer.

Extrava-vaganza has predominantly orange glitter with silver, gold, green, and pink, I believe.

Just like the other Burlesque glitters, it's very jam packed full of glitter and is almost opaque in just one coat. I like to layer them over other colors, obviously.

This is my crazy party pumpkin look.

I don't know that I'll be reaching for either of these too often, just because I don't tend to favor oranges. But they are fun and lovely, nonetheless!

Here is China Glaze's Mummy May I, three coats in all her glory!

I'm not sure why, but I liked this one more than I had anticipated.

It IS black, it IS purple, it IS glittery. Why on earth wouldn't I adore it?!

Application was a little thick and gloopy, but it all turned out well. I think I probably added some thinner after the first coat.

The glitter is very simple in this one, but I still think it looks gorgeous.

Now I'm wishing I had put some holo pizazz on top - like Sunshine on Snowflakes or Shooting Stars. ;)

This was a halloween-themed mani for me. I'm still trying to catch up to the present, if you will, with my pictures. I'll get there - one day, by golly!

I started with two coats of Maybelline Chic Chocolate. They did something crazy to the brush. It was cut at an awkward and strange angle. It made it rather challenging to apply the polish!

I added a coat of China Glaze Spellbound.

I picked up Spellbound last year from an e-tailer (I think it was only available online), but never got into Halloweeny manicures then. I guess I just wasn't feeling it!

I'm really glad I have this, though, because it's quite unique and super fun.

Can you believe how long my nails are here? Spooky. :)

The sad part here is that Maybellines wear like crap on me, as far as I can tell. It began chipping pretty significantly in under 24 hours.

Maybe I just need to find the right magical combination of base and top with it, huh?

That's okay, anyway. I usually change my polish every day or two at any rate. Sometimes I think it would be nice not to need to, though!

I started with two coats of Color Club Pucci-licious. It applied very well and I have zero complaints about it.

It's such a gorgeous, vibrant purple creme.

To it, I added one coat of Inglot 201.

Clear with silver holographic glitter pieces.

It turned out really pretty!

Oh hai, Georgia, Baby!

Georgie, as I've been calling her lately, is just now turning three! It's hard to believe.

She's my sunbathing shmoopykins Borzoi love.

More sparkly goodness!

Both Pucci-licious and Inglot 201 are super fun. I recommend them highly!



This manicure started out with two coats of China Glaze Zombie Zest. It looked too swampy and barfy by itself, though, so I added a coat of Piggy Polish GREEN and Bear It.

Wowza! I loves it!

Check out the bottle above. See how in the bottom of the bottle it's reflecting blue somehow? I don't know if that's the polish or a reflection from my pool or something!

I really like how electrified this was. So gorgeous!

I guess Piggy Polish is meant for toes, but what do I care?!

GREEN and Bear It has the same glass flecked shimmer that Zombie Zest has, it's just lighter, more vibrant, and limey.

Check out how long my nails are getting here!

I wore this mani up to visit my friend in Pittsburgh last month.

It actually wore very well on me and stayed put without much chipping for several days. This is good!

More pictures...so many.




I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love, food, and family! :)

On MUA I joked about laying all of the Burlesque glitters all at once. And then I got to thinking.

All would be too thick, but three should be just fine!! I started with a coat of Show It and Glow It! The bottle is shown above and below.

Stupidly, I didn't take progress pictures as I went along, so my nails are the same in all these pictures (the finished product). D'oh!

I added a coat of Glow Up Already! The bottle is shown above and below.

To finish it off, I used a coat of Sparkle-licious.

It's a little laughable, because really, can you tell there is any other glitter than Sparkle-licious?

No, silly rabbit!

But it's still pretty, and I know they are there! It's my secret.

Plus, maybe it's a teeny tiny bit different looking than just Sparkle-licious would be on its own? Let me pretend. Leave me in denial. :)

I love these glitters. They are so bombtastic.

Thank you, OPI. Bless you, Suzi.

This Is Me!

My Photo
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.
