Manicure Monday: 1/06

Hey there, readers! Mondays can (well, do) suck most of the time, so I like to cheer up with some fabulous nails.

Today I did my nails with two exquisite OPI polishes. Big Apple Red is a true red color, it’s a neutral red so it doesn’t make my skin look too yellow or too pink (odd, but I find this with a lot of red polishes). Pirouette My Whistle is a clear polish with small to medium glitters on the inside. When you first look at this product, the glitter is so tightly packed together that it looks like you could wear it on it’s own and it would fully cover your nails, however when I first used it, I realized I was wrong. Of coarse, if you just want sheer sparkles, this is the perfect polish for the job. I like it much better with a base color underneath, but that’s just my personal preference.

OPI has been my favorite nail polish brand for quite sometime. For Christmas I was given the OPI Take Ten nail polish set that came with 10 adorable mini polishes! The upper level had a sparkly color, white, and 3 cool and cozy purple colors. The bottom had a black and 5 unique shades of red.

I am always impressed with the color payoff, and that the polish always goes on exactly how it looks in the bottle. These colors are two of my favorites in the whole set. I think I’ve found my favorite true red color!

I am in no way a professional at doing nails, they certainly have faults. I’m also that person who somehow manages to chip at least one of her nails within the first 24 hours.

What is your favorite “true red” nail polish? Anyone have any recommendations for a sparkly polish?

Happy Monday!
