i love paint


February 15, 2010

ever since i got engaged {a whopping 1 month and 1 day ago}, i discovered that i must keep my nails painted at ALL times since i have certain individuals looking at my rock candy–haha!!
i know this won’t last too long, but with all the attention my hands have been getting…thank you jeff… i have to keep my nails in manicure form, which takes more time than one would think.
i used to be the el-cheapo person who skimped by on inexpensive nail polish from Wal-Mart, Target, etc., but now I have discovered just why people pay so much for OPI and I’ve become a bit obsessed.
my nails are now painted with “Elephantastic Pink” and i just love it… plus, they’ve been painted dark grey, purple, and red and i needed a bright color to make me look a bit less pale in these harsh winter months!!
P.S. if you have a Sun Tan City near you, all OPI colors are 20% off right now, too!! =)
what’s your favorite shade???

  1. capperson says:

    That color looks sooo pretty!!

  2. Jules says:

    I've never seen that shade of pink before. I'll have to look for it. I love Bubble Bath by OPI and Ballet Slippers by Essie.

    I was the same when I got engaged and always had to have my nails painted!

  3. I am one of those peeps who are obsessed with OPI {I love that color btw} You need to sign up for Gwens nailpolish swap…you can get to her site from mine {she is also a fellow OPI junkie} Hope your staying warm! xoxo

  4. Hodge Podge says:

    I remembered when I discovered the same thing about nail polish. A couple extra $$ are well worth it. You're a Pisa Work is wonderful for summer!

  5. I used to be the girl that skimped on polish as well. But no more!! I was always like 'why would you pay that much for nail polish, it's all the same.' Um, no it's not!! OPI takes the cake! I love that color, so feminine!

  6. I am a fellow OPI obsesser! You just can't go back after you try OPI.

  7. Keri says:

    adorable color! I also used to buy inexpensive nail polish but it is worth it to get the better types. I recently got a great set of coach nail polish for Christmas. Who knew coach made nail polish?? It is fab.

  8. LG says:

    I am a HUGE OPI fan and agree it is worth the extra $. Some beauty supply stores sell the OPI trunk for $20 to store all your polish and nail supplies in and its really nice!

  9. Mykla says:

    OPI is the best polish hands down! Linkin Park After Dark is my favorite!

  10. Risley says:

    pretty colors!!
    my fav OPI colors are
    bag apple red
    you dont know jacques

  11. Lulu in D.C. says:

    A great color to try for your wedding, if don't do french is OPI sweetheart. It is a very neutral color with a hint of pink! And, it is great for everyday, since it matches everything!

  12. Kelly Marie says:

    What a pretty pink! I love Casting Call for Sephora by OPI!!

  13. Heather says:

    OPI Nail Polish is the BEST! I won't use anything else!

  14. Jenna says:

    i love OPI.. right now my favorite is midnight in moscow 🙂

  15. OOOh that color is gorgeous!! My favorite OPI shades are Cajun Shrimp and Kiss the Bride!!

  16. I love OPI, but I prefer Finger Paints. It's sold at Sally's Beauty Supply. (I live in Ohio.) I've tried numerous types of polish and Finger Paints are THE best. Also, top if with Out The Door and you are set!

  17. #1: I'll be getting some OPI for sale at STC
    #2: I keep a rotation of several colors. I looove Lincoln Park After Dark, Bastille my Heart, Apricot Ya Cheating, and Plugged in Purple (my new fave)
    #3: Bubble Bath is a go-to nude. I'll likely wear it for our wedding.

  18. WestSacHoney says:

    Love this when I went ring shopping I got my nails done before hand so I could see how beautiful it would look on pretty manicured nails!

  19. OceanDreams says:

    Ohh I love OPI and I just painted my nails last night actually with a pink shade similar to this, yay!

  20. I was totally the same when when I got engaged. I was so good about it, then I totally slacked off a few months later. I love that color though, I have a similar OPI color and I just call it my "Barbi pink."

  21. Ashley says:

    Oh I love that color! I've had a craving for some new nail polish lately…this might go on my list!

    My personal favorite OPI color is Cha-Ching Cherry. It holds a special place in my heart because it's what I had on my toes for my wedding. My sweet friend LeRae got me a bottle as a gift for helping her with her wedding a few months later. LOVE IT!
