Nerd Lacquer

In case you have been on another universe everyone in the nail polish world knows that there is a great movement in the independant nail polish world.  It is new and exciting and I for one am totally on the band wagon.  Today I am wearing The Quantim Bluniverse.  It is duo chrome in that it changes from green to blue and has silver glitter.  It is a two coater and lasts several days.  I always use two coats of top coat.  Just out of habit.  I am not sure if this color is still available but totally worth the money.  NerdLacquer can be found on Etsy, Ninja Polish and Harlow and CO.

Zoya Polka Dots

I have both beach and surf collection from Zoya but I am sure anyone reading this has seen them all over the place I felt like doing something fun with the colors and this is what I came up with.  The texture and staying power of the polish is great but do need to note that Zuza and Wednesday (the blue ones of the collection) do stain your nails.  I usually use a buffer to get the stain out or you can try two coats of base coat.

I used Konad plates m 71  and  m64.

Nails are Not Tools

I have this extreme desire to note that nails are  not tools. My mother's nails are so strong she uses them as a screwdriver. If you want to wear a ring please wear it around your finger and not your nail.  They are also not for scratching lottery tickets. They are not for biting when you are hungry, for heaven sakes buy a snickers bar.  Nails are especially not for picking your nose at the red light where I have to see it.  If you must please do this in private.

So, why do we have nails?

Though the ages scientists have disagreed about whether or not toenails and fingernails serve to protect our digits, our resources all agree that our nails help us pick up little stuff like pencils, peanuts, and even bottles of nail polish.

Ok, got that off my chest.  Now, with the weekend coming we usually go for something black.  I do, and why shouldn't we.  Everyone looks good in black but I say add some red and white and you've got a knockout of an outfit.  Add some red shoes, (not white) a white scarf, with some red earrings the possiblities are endless as they are for your polish.  I wore this manicure this weekend and got alot of compliments.  Here it is.

Opi and Spiderman together

In“Spider”ed Shades!

OPI Celebrates Sony Pictures’ “The Amazing
Spider-Man” with Limited Edition Nail Lacquers

OPI announces the launch of six limited edition nail lacquers and a new Shatter, inspired by Sony Pictures’ The Amazing Spider-Man. With an all-star cast including Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, this highly-anticipated series reboot opens in theaters nationwide in 3D on July 3, 2012.

“OPI is so excited to work with Sony Pictures in welcoming Spider-Man back on the big screen,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “This film explores a new chapter in the Spider-Man legacy that’s going to be both dark and sexy.

The colors created for this promotion capture the movie’s exciting atmosphere, with standout shades like the deep shimmering blue Into the Night and the metallic golden green Just Spotted the Lizard.”

The film villain’s reptilian look can be replicated with a high-fashion twist by using the new deep green shimmer Shatter coat. Shatter the Scales is inspired by graffiti art and works when painted over any dry OPI hue. Adding top coat takes Shatter the Scales from matte to glossy in seconds.

The line features six nail lacquers in addition to Shatter the Scales, ranging from white, coral and pink to mood-setting hues of blue, nickel and yellow-green:

Your Web or Mine?
The perfect pink for sticky situations.

Into the Night
This perfect midnight blue was made for prowling.

Call Me Gwen-ever
Girlfriend, be sure to pick up when this urgent coral calls.

Just Spotted the Lizard
Be seen in this reptilian yellow-green.

My Boyfriend Scales Walls
Climb new heights with this cityscape white.

Number One Nemesis
Show your metal in this sparkling nickel.

Shatter the Scales

As with all OPI nail lacquers, these shades inspired by The Amazing Spider-Man contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.

This limited edition promotion will be available beginning May 2012 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($9.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.
