OPI Muir Muir on the Wall

This is one from the new San Francisco Collection.

OPI calls this a blackened plum shimmer. I agree with that description. This is a very pretty polish, I'm really loving this one. Its a bit thin on the first coat but with the second it comes to together great. Topped with Seche Vite

Spa Day at Work Mani

So today the building I work in did something special for the tenants as a thank you for a bunch of construction and elevator work that we've been putting up with for over a year. They catered lunch for us, with ice cream for dessert and brought in a team of nail techs from a local Aveda shop called Perry Monge Salon Spa to give us all manicures. Its been more than 20 years (I'm not even kidding) since I let anyone polish my nails, but I joined in the fun today and let them do my nails. This was done by Mariluz from Perry Monge Salon.

The polish is OPI Black Cherry Chutney

OPI Alcatraz... Rocks

I stopped by Ulta yesterday and picked up Alcatraz...Rocks from the new San Francisco collection. This is the only one that really interested me, but maybe I'll take another look again next week and see if any of the others catches my fancy then, but they all just seemed too similar to things I already have. Oh well we'll see what happens.

This is a Liquid Sand polish. The base is a matte dark navy blue with a slight purplish tint. The glitter is purple, gold & green. When it dries its very purple, more than the pics show and the glitter is very sparkly although its a matte. I have a regular pic and a blurry pic to show the sparkle. Both taken outside. No top coat used

I really really like this one. I think its my favorite of all of the Liquid Sands
