I'm here! I chose this manicure as my "comeback" because it is cheerful, bright, girly, sparkly, and everything in between!
"Extravagance" (as I'm sure many of you know) is an OPI Designer Series shade. What classifies an OPI polish as "Designer Series"? I used to think all DS polishes were holographic but lately they've been just plain sparkly... not even cool sparkly like "Mad as a Hatter"... Just boring sparkly like "Mystery". How many more times should I use the word "sparkly"? :)
ANOTHER OBSERVATION: The old, old DS polishes had a holographic rainbow effect. The newer ones have only scattered holographic pieces :(
Since I'm on the topic of old DS polishes, "Extravagance" (I'd say) is the same exact color as DS "Exclusive" minus the awesome holo rainbow effect that I just noted. Maybe I should do a side-by-side comparison just to confirm...
Anyways... Here I applied 2 coats. This polish was amazingly easy to work with. Goes on smooth and removes just as well. The color is magenta and those tiny specs that you see are actually holographic bits! Here is a closer look. Keep in mind, it is waaaay prettier in real-life:
Below is a photo in the sunlight. You can see the holographic specs reflecting different colors (blue, red, etc) better than in the previous pictures.
welcome back sweety.. i miss ur post and weekly challenge me & mae continue ur weekly challenge on fb.. i hope u dont mind and ofcourse we acknowledge that it was ur own idea... i hope u had a great vacation.. xoxo
Kelliegonzo- Yes! I've managed to keep from breaking them :) Maybe it's the new OPI Nail Envy base coat or the fact that I NEVER go without polish anymore... who knows! But I'm glad!
Thriszha- Thanks :) I did have a nice break! I'd like to start the challenges again but I'm trying to decide how to make it easier to host them... maybe have everyone upload their own photos to a Photobucket album created just for that theme? And then I'd post like the top 10...? Haven't decided yet! :)
Danielle- Thanks! Read the comment above for info regarding the challenges :) :) What do you think about that idea?
yay!! hmmmm..u mean u will just post the top 10 entries in every challenge? what will happen to the other entries then? I know how hard to host this kind of thing and its not really easy.. and we thank u for creating this and now we follow ur lead..LOL!! me and mae (art of nail) are on our 3rd week of challenge hehehe and we are really amazed and happy for we found another nail art fanatic from our country..we also post the entry on our facebook accnt. and we also post in our blog for there are some blogger user also we want to show case a gallery of nail art that every would inspire.. just choose the way that would be easy for u to host this weekly challenge!!! xoxo!!
i like the idea of everyone uploading their own pictures. i'm sure its a lot of work to organize and crop/resize them all.
one of the things i like about your challenges is that they are not competitive. if you post the top 10 only, you may discourage some from participating. and if you post the first 10 to reply, you know i'll be late, lol.
thanks for coming back. i miss your challenges and your nails.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them! Also, don't forget to check out my links above. There you'll find a section about me, my complete list of OPI (including photos!), and other important information. Enjoy :)
