MANICURE MONDAY: OPI Infinite Shine "Running with the In-finite Crowd"

I am in Sweden this week with the little one, so I bought some goodies ay Schiphol airport on the way here.

This offering from OPI hasn't really been talked about much, I'm guessing because it's more of a salon offering.

You need to use the proprietary base and top coat for the polishes,  and follow the instructions on the OPI website, but it doesn't require any lights etc.

I used 2 thin coats of polish here. It's very pigmented! It did dry to the touch within the 15 mins promised even in the dark Swedish evening. But this morning i can see some dents and tip wear on my right hand,  I'm guessing it's not dry enough in the time to deal with baby things (and fiddling with the insides of my brothers pc)...

I'll give an update on wear time and removal later in the week!

Birthday NOTD: Ciate "Dangerous Affair"


New year, new me - I'm going to make time for manicures again!! I finally took time to do my nails, which I've probably not done for almost a year now.

I've reviewed this magazine freebie previously, and I still love it. It's just the right kind of dark red, not too brown or that dreaded "nearly black"! 😁

I did 2 neat coats and used my old favourite Sally Hansen Mega Shine as top coat (still using Zoya Anchor for base). I still love Mega Shine too, wonder why they discontinued it?? Dries so quick (bonus when you have a 7 month around) and it's sooooo shiny for a long time.

I hope to get back to some sort of schedule once I'm back to work in start of February, until then you'll just have to get used to infrequent posts...
