Past NOTD: Spark de Triomphe

I didn't really think I would want any of the Serena Williams duo- that is till I saw pictures of Spark de Triomphe online.. then bam. Another love story begins.

This polish is gorgeous. It's kind of sad to see White Shatter concealing the true beauty of it, the original idea of how the whole look was supposed to be as initiated by OPI.
Obviously I do not want the White Shatter burying its goodness, and neither do I really want it so I sold it away! To another good home where it will be appreciated.

p/s: I used three coats for full coverage.

Past NOTD: Bubbly Bombshell

Hi! This is one of my past manicure: Bubbly Bombshell from Orly Pin Up collection.
I totally love this polish, I remember gasping and being so excited about it when I first saw it. It is so SO pretty!! This polish consist of fuchsia glitter of two different size, one is bigger than the other. The smaller glitter is more dominant than the bigger. It covers the whole nail and is opaque in three coats. Two would suffice, but I would like more coverage so I went with three. :)

Swatch folder: OPI Espresso Your Style

I apologize for not posting in weeks, months.. however long it was. ;)

Today's swatch is OPI Espresso Your Style. I swatched a couple of polishes a few days ago when I was free at home as I was sick.. so I guess I will be posting more swatches in the next few days, along with maybe a couple of old NOTDs. :)

I then decided to play with my matte top coat since I haven't been using it for a long long long long while.

I would describe Espresso Your Style probably as a very dark auburn with bronze shimmer.
I was kind of disappointed as I was expecting the shimmer in Espresso to have more.... oomph, as I recall seeing it in a nail salon. Guess my brain amplified the color in my memory than what it really was... ahh IT IS still a pretty color anyway! :)
