Lately I cannot stay away from the glitter. I’m loving it. My nails hate me!
Once again I found myself reaching for OPI Polka.com. While it was a late addition to my collection it’s turned out to be one of my most used glitters and definitely the polish I’ve gotten the most use of from OPI’s Euro Central collection.
I was wearing wet n wild Bite the Bullet and topped it with just one coat of Polka.com. Initially I was just going to use the glitter as an accent. But I quickly decided the result was way too pretty not to have on all 10 nails! I kind of loved the end result.
Polka.com is still available at Ulta and drugstore.com (and it looks like Sally Hansen may have a potential dupe out….more on that coming soon!). Bite the Bullet is available from drugstore.com as well as anywhere wet n wild is sold.
Swatches under the jump!

Oh my gosh, y’all. If you caught my post last weekend then you know I went to the Iron Bowl. And well….it was by most accounts the game of the century and the best finish to a sporting event ever. Auburn runs deep in my family. I was the fourth generation to earn a degree […] Continue reading →
I’m about to sound really crazy…. But. A manicure came to me in a dream. No, seriously. I’m not even making this up! It was a navy and gray half moon manicure with blue glitter. Anyway, I clearly needed a gray base for the manicure. I started looking through my stash and found Pelican Gray. […] Continue reading →
I’m back! Not that there was any reason to notice I was gone…. Before I went out of town I scheduled plenty of posts but I have been gone for about a week. It’s good to be back! But my nails definitely suffered when I was gone. After some SERIOUS nail rehab I finally got […] Continue reading →
Y’all. I love this manicure! It’s been awhile since I’ve done any nail art that involved sponging. I forgot how pretty it can be. For this manicure I used deborah lippmann Rolling in the Deep as the base color. I let that dry completely then sponged Orly Rage just on the tips using an eyeshadow […] Continue reading →
Well, I suppose December makes it appropriate to talk about ice, right? I live in the South for a reason. I don’t do winter. But I’m perfectly happy to try out something icy looking on my nails! butter LONDON released 2 Double Take duos for the 2013 holiday season; the Ice duo and the Fire […] Continue reading →
I have a feeling this is going to be one of those love it or hate it manicures. I happen to love it! Pure Ice No Means No is a purple metallic that color shifts to blue in certain lights. I love the way it compliments the glitter in Essie Jazzy Jubilant. I used just […] Continue reading →
IT’S IRON BOWL DAY!!!!!!!! Unless you are from Alabama or have some connection with Auburn or the University of Alabama you’re probably going to think I’m a bit crazy after this post. But I’m totally ok with that. The Iron Bowl (aka the annual meeting of Auburn and Alabama’s football teams….) is being played today […] Continue reading →
Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. My family does a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Much of what is served has been a tradition in my family long before I was born. My Mom and I are sharing the duties this year. I am responsible for the turkey and my grandmother’s dressing as well […] Continue reading →
This is the kind of polish that generally makes me run for the hills. Furry looking nails really aren’t my thing. And even if they were, I’d go the way of a velvet manicure instead of bar glitter. But how could I resist the prospect of trying an Essie polish that has bar glitter? My […] Continue reading →
