Purple Days- Day 2: OPI 'Funkey Dunkey'

Day 2!  This is 'Funkey Dunkey' one of best nail polish names of all the nail polish names that I have (see picture below).  So this is a dark purple jelly polish.  Now when I say 'jelly' that means a sheer creme that's very shiny.  Key word there is sheer.  I got this as a pedicure back in February and the person only gave me 2 coats so I had all these bald spots!  Foolishness.  But it has a great formula with a super shiny finnish and a really nice purple that's not to blur or red.

Purple Days- Day 1: OPI 'Rumples' Wiggins'

So 'Purple Days', is something that I'm doing for my little sister, Mimi.  And so her birthday is June 14th and her favorite is purple.  And she has fibromyalgia and the official color for that is purple. So they go hand in.  So for the next 13 days each day I'll show a purple swatch or purple manicure.

'Rumple Wiggins' is a light lilac creme from the OPI Shrek collection (which I love).  And when I say 'light', I don't mean that it's not bright, because it is.  It's so pretty this is the perfect color for Easter, if you don't want a washed out color.  Of course Easter has pasted...

What did you wear on Easter?  Do you even remember?

Sally Hansen 'Laser'

This is one coat of 'Laser' over Essie's 'No More Film' ( a beauteous navy creme). Seriously, I'm not kidding this picture is HIDEOUS in comparison to the real polish. It has this really pretty shift from blue to purple and in the sun it's RIDICULOUS! Do you guys have any HD colors?

Hunger Games Mani

Hey guys, I know a lot of you have been wondering why I haven't made any posts, part of that reason is that I got really lazy as far as blogging is concerned and also my computer has just been nuts lately.  Now while I haven't posted on this blog I have been putting some of my swatches up on Pinterest and on Instagram (larsoncarter).  Onto the mani!!!!

This is my first attempt at nail art and I think for a newbie its pretty good (and it only took 1 1/2 hours!).  I did this before seeing the Hunger Games with some of my friends (GREEAT GREEEEEEEEEEAT MOVIE! BUT YOU *MUST* READ THE BOOKS FIRST.  THEY ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!).  It's a base of China Glaze 'Smoke and Ashes' (one of the most beautiful colors my eyeballs have had the gift of seeing) with layers of acrylic paint.  What do you guys think?  Did you see the movie? Read the books?  Did you have a special manicure for it?  Comment below!

Sinful Colors 'Love Nails'

(from L-R: White, Black, Sinful Colors 'Why Not', and bare nail)

This is one coat of 'Love Nails' over 3 different polishes and bare nail.  The reason I did this swatch like this was because this is a sheer polish meant for layering, and I wanted to show 4 different looks side-by-side.  'Love Nails' is a sheer blue shimmer that I'm pretty sure could never reach full opacity.  Personally, I like it best over black, but it also looks really beuatious over any blue.

What do you think??

Magnetic Polish At dELiA*s by Color Club?

Hey, just a quick post from my phone. So I'm at Delia's and I saw they had magnetic polish and on the bottle it said it was a polish by Color Club. I hasn't heard of Color Club partnering with Delia's so I was wondering what this is about. What do you think about these polishes???

OPI 'Ogre the Top Blue'

This is from OPI's Shrek Collection.  I really LOVE that colleciton because it's all cremes but non of them were boring (see great swatches here).  This is a great medium blue creme, and I think every nail polish hoarder should have it.  At first I thought that it would be a dupe for Sally Hansen 'Blue Streak' but that's a lot more light and teal.  This is 2 easy coats great OPI formula.  Only problem is that when you take it off it may make your fingers blue!

What do you think?

Also there are these HYSTERICAL YouTube videos me and my friend Erica are obsessed with see below:
