OPI Reflecting Pool

Hello!

I am taking time out from the very boring packing to show you what's currently on my nails.

I bought this a few weeks ago on a trip to Sally's for something completely different. It was a very spur of the moment buy as I'd made it to the counter with just what I had planned but then, there it was. Staring at me. Saying 'buy me, buy me' in a very high pitched voice. I couldn't resist. I was helpless in it's gaze. So even though OPI is more money than I normally spend on nail polish it somehow made itself into my hand :) It cost £9 ($14), I don't know how that compares to other places?

Anyway here it is - OPI's Reflecting Pool -



You really need to click on these pictures to get the full effect of this polish!









It's a really lovely bluey/green with speckles of gold through it. You can see the gold in the enlarged pictures. I think this colour would look good matte... still pondering on whether to get a matte topcoat or not!

I think, although I'm not 100%, that this is a UK exclusive. I'm so glad I got it as I la la love it! I may have to get some of the others in the series...

If you saw my fingernails now though, you would cringe. I have been packing and cleaning all day and they are really looking the worse for it. *Sigh*. I will have to give them some tlc when we're settled. I think they will have to be cut down again.

That's it for today. Just going to say it one more time - enlarge the pics so you can see the gold!! :)

That is so beautiful! I've seen pictures of it and it makes me want it more every time I see another! Good luck with the rest of your packing :)

Very pretty on you. You'll need to do some soaking of your fingernails in warmed olive oil. A friend of mine who owns a hair shop said it's the best thing. I've never done it. She said it's good for your nails to put the moisture back in them and your cuticles. The bad thing with packing is all the damn cleaning you have to do! That's right you light to clean don't you? UGH!

That's a gorgeous colour - I love it. My mother in law is coming to visit from the UK soon - maybe I can get her to bring it for me. ;-)
