Hello there my loves! Hope you’re all having a delightful week so far? Despite the most UN-delightful weather that is…yes April Showers are in full throttle here in good ol’ England. Currently tucked up in bed with a cuppa & good movie, the best thing to do in this kinda weather methinks ;) Tonight’s choice… A Knights Tale, definitely up there as one of my favs! Plus it has the amazing late Heath Ledger in it…*sigh* such an incredible actor he was, truly sad he is no longer with us :(
Now, I’m sure you know by now that I am a…err "liker"…you might say of the nail polish? An insanely over obsessed addict some have said. However as much as I absolutely adore these little bottles of beautifulness, I have a little confession to make. I actually own only 2 bottles of what is quite probably the most popular & well known polish brand in the world, O.P.I…& even those were not purchased by me! *hangs head in shame* I don’t know what it is, as awesome as many of the collections have been, I’ve never actually taken the leap & purchased, having found other & slightly cheaper dupes? However this is something that this pitiful excuse of a nail polish addict plans on changing for sure! A sort of life's pursuit if you will... ;)
Today I have ONE of the two O.P.I’s that I own to share with you, this one was kindly sent to me by my lovely sister across the pond Vonnie in a makeup swap, thanks doll! I actually did this mani yonks ago & have only just gotten around to blogging about it! (What’s new Aysh) Apologies in advance for the god awful pics my dears, I did this mani in the evening were the light was dull, dull, super dull! But did my best to try & capture! Here we have the smoking hot Smok’n In Havana, a deep, brick red with the most delightful golden shimmer running through it giving it an almost burnt orange edge.
Smok’n In Havana was originally part of the O.P.I’s Caribbean collection from 1997 but is now part of the O.P.I Classics. I like to think of this as one of my more “grown up” shades, definitely pretty, especially with the bronze gold shimmer to it. However I did want to jazz it up a tad more so did my fav thing of adding a few nail stickers, giving the mani a hippy flower power touch! :D Peace baby…
What do you think? Do you own this shade? What’s your favourite O.P.I polish? I guess I’ll need recs to continue my O.P.I journey! ;) Thanks for reading dolls!
Lotsa love to ya!
