OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons

tomorrow is buy one Butter London polish get one FREE day at Ulta!! i plan on being there when they open, if all goes well :D hopefully, tomorrow post will be my Butter London haulage!

today's polish is OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons from their 2012 Germany collection. i think this is seriously misnamed... the color is nothing like a pretzel (either the inside or the outside!). it's a mannequin hand type nude creme that reminds me of the color of the original Band-Aids. this means it has strong greY undertones with just a touch of pink. the formula can't be faulted, two easy coats for full opacity! it's not my perfect mannequin hand polish, it's actually much too dark for my skin tone... but it's pretty fairly light, i'm just superrr light :)

two coats Buttons, one coat Seche Vite.

sorry for the tragic state of my cuticles... they actually don't look that bad in person, i'm not sure why they look so dehydrated on film! Jewels ate my Poshe Cuticle Care and i haven't been able to find a replacement tube... i've heard they've been discontinued :( i've been using the Sally Hansen Hand Creme instead, but not nearly enough. i'm going to look for the Poshe at Ulta tomorrow... hope i find it! good luck at the Butter London sale tomorrow, everyone!! Ria :)


  1. Pretty polish!

    Badger Cuticle Care and Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil may be good alternatives. I find that they are very moisturizing.


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
