At this point we are several weeks into the MLB regular season and my baseball fever is kind of out of control. My friends call my house baseball central. There’s a game on every TV. And if there are no games, the MLB Network is on.
So to say the least I’m loving the OPI Fashion Plate collection. When I was wearing this polish I kept going up to people and making them ask what my nail polish was called!
Umpires Come Out At Night is my favorite of the two polishes I’ve tried so far from the Fashion Plate mini set. The set includes 6 or the 7 polishes from the collection (the only polish missing is Right Off The Bat).
OPI describes Umpires Come Out At Night as a deep midnight blue. I’d describe it more as a blackened cobalt creme (think the color of what umpires wear during games…). Whatever description you prefer, this is a gorgeous polish. And the formula is wonderful. I used two coats in my swatches.
I haven’t seen this collection in stores yet (if you have please leave a comment!). Umpires Come Out At Night is available on Amazon. The mini set is available on eBay and Amazon.
Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump!

I’ve been seriously into green polishes lately! Normally I don’t gravitate towards green polishes but with all the awesome green polishes being released for spring I can’t seem to help myself. For Spring 2014 Pixi released 3 new polishes. Lime Lustre immediately caught my attention. In the bottle I thought I was going to like […] Continue reading →
Happy Monday! It’s Spring Break for me… Last year I went to South Beach, But I’ve opted for a staycation over something more adventurous this year. It’s time for the second of four Lex Cosmetics giveaways. I’ve decided to celebrate my week off with a Getaway Giveaway: Lex Cosmetics Destinations! The Shades of Glitter & […] Continue reading →
I’ve been really into glitter accent nails lately. But not full on glitter. I’ve been doing glitter gradients like they’re going out of style (and hey, they might be!). For this manicure I used one of my all time favorite glitters; POP Beauty Steel Glitz. I picked up Steel Glitz from HauteLook ages ago and […] Continue reading →
As I sit here and type this post my seasonal allergies are in full swing. That yellow greenish pollen is EVERYWHERE and I hate it. So, when I saw Spring Buds in the bottle I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the color. It looks like pollen! But on my nails I absolutely adore this polish. For […] Continue reading →
I know I keep bashing the 2014 color of the year; Radiant Orchid. I just don’t LIKE it. Or at least I thought I didn’t like it. Enter butter LONDON Molly Coddled. I discovered Molly Coddled when I was putting together my Spring 2014 Must Have Polishes post. So when Ulta had their 2 for […] Continue reading →
While I adore Style Hunter, this polish is the standout from Essie’s Spring 2014 Hide & Go Chic collection. Essie describes Fashion Playground as a pistachio shimmer. While this polish does have shimmer it’s super subtle. It just keeps the polish from being completely flat. The color is great. There’s no warm or yellow undertones […] Continue reading →
It’s no secret that I’m kind of a baseball junky. I love many sports, but baseball was my first sports love and therefore holds a special place in my heart. So, to say the least, when I saw OPI was doing a collection with MLB I kind of freaked out. I immediately decided to order […] Continue reading →
Another OPI collection? I can’t keep up! From Gwen to Baseball to Brazil to Muppets, I’m on overload! The latest – of course – is Muppets Most Wanted… the Soft Shades collection for 2014. I find the collection to be very eclectic- I don’t see a duochrome or royal blue as typical OPI Soft Shades […] Continue reading →
This manicure came about simply because I wasn’t in love with Essie Truth or Flare. I don’t dislike that polish by any stretch but I didn’t like it as a full manicure and I’m not really into wasting a perfectly good mani so I decided to alter it a bit. I took Truth or Flare […] Continue reading →
