My Nails: Mad About Magenta!

November 30, 2011

Good evening dolls! How is your week going?! My weeks are flying by, hard to believe it’s time for another nail blog! When I was in Ulta the last time picking up a few of the Muppets for OPI shades (read about it in my last nail blog post here), there was a really pretty shade by Essie that caught my eye. I know, I know, I am slowly becoming a big Essie fan. But honestly, I love discovering any shade that is beautiful and suits my mood no matter the brand!

So anyway, the shade that caught my eye is part of Essie’s New Year’s Eve Metallics collection. These colors embody everything I envision for New Years Eve: fun, vibrant, and bold…see what I mean?

The shade that REALLY stood out to me was “Jamaica Me Crazy” (how cute is that name?!). It’s described on Essie’s website as being a “spirited magenta with shimmer.” 2 of my favorite things in life...magenta and shimmer...combined in 1 lovely little bottle!?  How exciting! And another selling point on this color was that I thought it would be perfect for my upcoming trip to the most magical place on Earth (Disney World…leaving Sunday!). Can’t you see a Disney Princess totally wearing some magenta polish on her nails?!

So when I arrived at my nail salon today, I found out that they had actually received a shipment of the entire Muppets for OPI collection (including many shades that weren't included in my mini-set). As I blogged about before, this collection has SO many pretty glitter colors and I thought, why not add a top coat of the purple glitter Miss Piggy color “Divine Swine" on top of my new magenta polish!?

So here is the final look that has convinced me that Essie + OPI = a nail polish combination to love....

Base: 2 coats of Essie's Jamaica Me Crazy
Top: 1 coat of OPI's Divine Swine

I think this would be such a fun look for a holiday party and especially New Year’s Eve!
