NOTD9- OPI – Lincoln Park after Dark

This is “Lincoln Park After Dark by OPI” Its a very deep plum. Looks almost black but has a plum shade. Difficult color to capture.

This is with one coat of “Zoya – Faye” on tips

a little swoosh of “Zoya – Faye”

and lastly: this is what I ended up with.

I used my new-found tools and made diagonal Different sized dots with “Zoya – Faye”

Enjoy!

NOTD8- Zoya Faye VS OPI It’s My Year

In my last Beauty Haul I ordered both of these colors from mbeautylounge.com see my “New Polishes” post for my review on that website. I was very upset when I tried these colors to see that they are virtually the same color.

Online they looked like different colors but now I know why… they are both one of those colors that is extremely difficult to capture in a photo. So I made some attempts to show you how they are basically similar.

I started out with one coat of “Zoya – Faye”

Then two coats

Then this is “OPI’s – I’ts my Year”

Again, rediculous hard to capture the little gold and purple flicks are very different in different lights, even in the bottle they don’t look the same but in person I can assure you, I can barely tell the difference. Glad I wasted 8 bucks a pop on each of the same thing… lol 🙂

In any event they are both beautiful colors as top coats or on their own I will post some pics soon, Enjoy!

New Polishes!!!

Against the reviews for MBeautylounge.com I decided still to try this website out for myself (becuase I am stubborn like that) My shipment came in today and these are my new lovely color choices:

From left to Right:

OPI – Mermaid Tears (Pirates of the Caribbean Collection)

OPI – Lincoln Park after Dark

OPI – Grape Set Match (Serena Williams Collection

Zoya – Faye

OPI – Honk if you Love OPI

OPI – Planks A lot (Pirates of the Caribbean Collection)

OPI – It’s My Year (Miss Universe Collection)

Unfortunately some people did not have a very good experience with this company but I have to say mine was very pleasant. Prices were good and fairly good turn around time.

I placed my order on 1/25 which was a Wednesday. I received an email from them that Sunday the 29th that my order would be shipping soon and the email also gave me a shipping tracking number. Their website says once they have approved your order they print the shipping label. Should one of your items be back ordered they will attempt to hold your order for up to 14 days to see if it comes back in stock.

Then on Feb 8th my order left their facility and it came today! Everything I ordered was there, and their prices were great. Apparently some people didn’t get all of their items they ordered, the items were replaced with other items they didn’t order or just left out all together, some people didn’t even get their orders. : ( So should you decide to try this site out, proceed with caution. My experience was good as were some others, but remember not all were good.

Anyway! I am extremely excited to try out all my new colors and work with new ideas!

**Update, so I have tested out, “Zoya-Faye” and “OPI – It’s My Year” (Miss Universe Collection) and I have to say I was very upset. The pictures online of both the bottle and painted nails as well as you can see the above pictures, make them appear to be different colors. Yea, not so much. (Pictures to come) but lets just say that both of these colors are almost identical

I have alto tried “OPI – planks a lot” with “OPI – grape set match see that post. “OPI – lincoln park after dark” has its own post now as well as “mermaid tears” the only one i have not tried yet, is “OPI – honk if you love opi” that will also have its own post when ready 🙂

Enjoy!
