OPI Is This Star Taken?

whew... i'm FINALLY home! i feel like i've been gone forever... but somehow it was only a week. i'm SO proud of Brother Pawlish, he successfully graduated from boot camp and is now on to his training in his actual job he will be doing for the Army. it was pretty awesome to see how much he'd transformed into a 'real' grownup, soldier. i could not be more proud of him!

i have the new collections from China Glaze and FingerPaints that will be coming up in the next few weeks... but today i have an OPI to share! it's Is This Star Taken?, which i found on clearance at Ulta :D i have to say, this one is amazing in the bottle, you can really see all the gorgeous holographic bar glitter. however... it falls short on the nail in my opinion. it's a silver shimmer that doesn't quite make it to chrome. what really bums me out is that the glitter pieces aren't jumping off the nail! i guess it's because they are a silver holographic on a silver base... it's not terrible, it's just not what i was hoping for. guess i just wanted it to be more dramatic! it goes on easy and is opaque in two coats... the slight sheer spots you can find in the swatch photo are not visible in person. definitely seal it off with topcoat, don't want any of those bar glitters popping up :)

two coats Is This Star Taken?, one coat Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat.

hope you are all having fantastic weekends!! Ria :)
