I hate to pull the lazy blogger card, but it's vacay. And Thanksgiving is tomorrow. So this is probably the last you'll hear of me for the week (because I will be locked in a tiny dark closet writing a Medieval Architecture research paper. Fun times!). But before I go, I just had to show you guys the 2 new polishes I got.
I went to Ulta looking for Essie Smokin' Hot...and they were literally out of the entire winter collection. What. The. Heck. Not cool. So I grabbed these two puppies: OPI Ink and OPI Royal Rajah Ruby. I love that OPI keeps their seasonal collections around. I'm so used to MAC and the new things disappearing after a month, so finding a polish from a 2 year old collection was a nice surprise. OPI Ink is $5.55 at amazon.com, OPI Royal Rajah Ruby is $5.25 at amazon.com:
Here's a swatch of Ink, and here's a swatch of Royal Rajah Ruby. No time to take my own swatches. Yes, I do fail. Ink is an indigo blue-purple with fine pink shimmer. It's a much cooler and slightly lighter version of Zoya Valerie, which I just got. Royal Rajah Ruby is a little more blackened on me than in that swatch--it's a blackened red with red shimmer, very holiday but very vampy. It's what I thought Midnight in Moscow would be, except this one actually reads as red on the nails.
I'm still upset that they didn't have Smokin' Hot, but I really like both of these. Especially Royal Rajah Ruby. I die.
Update: I went to Ulta again today. They still didn't have Smokin' Hot. GAH. But Royal Rajah Ruby is wearing so well. It's such a lit-from-within color that it practically glows. Love.
