TIOT: Sephora by O.P.I. Break a Leg Warmer (plus Ellagee Not the Droids You’re Looking For)

19 Aug

I’m still having a terrible time with my nails! I started taking these vitamins from Deva, and my nail strength is definitely improving but (and I realize this is weird!) my nail polish keeps like… popping off! It comes off in whole sheets sometimes, like my nails are repelling the polish! Honestly, I have no clue what to do about it, haha. If anyone has any advice, I’d be immensely grateful!

In the mean time, I’m just going to keep changing my polish like daily because that’s how long it lasts!

Anyway, here’s a Try it on Tuesday for you!

The base color for this was Sephora by OPI Break a Leg Warmer (I have to assume this was from their winter collection before they discontinued the line) plus I used Ellagee Not the Droids You’re Looking For (which is also sadly unavailable anymore but came to me in nail mail last Halloween). I really love this grey color, though I wouldn’t mind if it we’re maybe 10% less black, if it were a softer grey. Not the Droids You’re Looking For is one of my fave glitter bombs based on the name alone, but it’s also super cute with blue, silver and gold glitter flecks, very reminiscent of the droids you are, in fact, looking for.

Alright, that’s all I have for today. If anyone has a suggestion how to deal with my nail polish-repelling problem, please let me know in the comments! I’m pretty desperate haha.

Rainbow Honey “Work It Out”

7 Aug

Hey folks, sorry for the delay in posting this. I’ve gotten so busy that I can’t promise more than one post a month anymore, but hey, at least I’m trying, right?

Anyway, I thought I’d show off another of those Rainbow Honey polishes I mentioned in my last post.

Disclaimer: Products provided for review

This one is called “Work It Out” and it’s a lovely, bright summery reddish coral.

(Sadly, my index fingernail is still a work in progress, so forgive me for hiding it haha)

I love this shade because it really pops, which is no less than I would expect from Rainbow Honey. Looks fabulous with my black dresses too (only the weak don’t wear black in the summer). The consistency of this polish was nice, and the above swatch is using two coats. I think this might be the shade I wear to my cousin’s end-of-summer wedding because I love it so much 🙂

I’ve still got one more Rainbow Honey polish to review, and I don’t know how long it will be before I post that, so until then.. have a great summer!
