Hawaii Collection by OPI for Spring/Summer 2015

OPI Hawaii

Aloha!

Today I have the Hawaii Collection by OPI for Spring/Summer 2015 for you. Like the OPI San Francisco Collection, I was very excited about this one because it is more personal for me.

Why is this personal for me? Well a few reasons actually. The last time I was in Hawaii was in 2007 for my wedding on the beach in Oahu! But I also have fond memories of going to the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Hawaii and Maui as a kid on vacation many times. Also, Mr. VV was stationed in Oahu for 3 years, so we both have a nice bond with the islands. index

Spring Nail Trend Tutorial Featuring Sally Beauty Nail Studio Shades!

Spring Nail Art Daisies

Hello!

We are rapidly hurdling towards spring (and for that I am so excited) so I thought I would show you a spring nail tutorial today featuring three of the 750 nail polish shades you can find at Sally Beauty Supply in their new Nail Studio.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of spring is flowers and light colors. The nail shades I chose were OPI That’s Hula-rious!, OPI Is Mai Tai Crooked? and FingerPaints Paper Mache, a brand that is exclusive to Sally Beauty. These are perfect colors for creating little spring daisies, which I had wanted to try for a while. Turns out they are so easy to create!

OPI Fifty Shades of Grey

OPI Fifty Shades of Grey

OPI Fifty Shades of Grey has arrived!

As you know, this new limited edition collection is based on the film adaptation of the worldwide bestselling book of the same name.

I’m not even going to comment on the book because I have said it before, I think the writing in the book was garbage, and I like Jackie Collins, so obviously I am no book snob. And I also want to say I am SO GLAD my Hollywood husband Charlie Hunnam backed out of this movie because it made me sad to think of him in that role even though he might be nekkid. ;)

Gwen Stefani for OPI Holiday 2014

Gwen Stefani for OPI Holiday 2014

As you have no doubt heard by now (get it?), there is a new limited edition Gwen Stefani for OPI holiday 2014 collection out!

In the collection there are eighteen shades, many of them red. Now normally I would sigh and be like “UGH MORE REDS FOR CHRISTMAS OPI?” but since Gwen is kind of known for wearing red lips and nails, it makes more sense, and I can forgive them. But next year *shakes fist!*

Like a silly child on Christmas morn’, I was so excited to take bottles shots of these I didn’t bother looking at the press release first to see that in fact there were eighteen shades, not twelve like I first thought. Mine came in two separate boxes, so I thought it was a twelve piece collection then another six piece one. So as you can see, I didn’t photograph all the bottles together. Live and learn. ;)

Since these have a semi-matte finish they are made to be worn without a top coat, but if you wanted to add some shine, by all means, please do!
