ydnj_greenportWas really deliberating about posting the picture because it came out slightly fuzzy, but the unexpected amazingness of the colour combination just made me want to put it up! To be honest, i did the diagonal greenport stripe only after the brown had some amount of tip wear so that i could drag out my polish longer. it turned out quite alright, and it was able to go for another 3 days!

OPI are releasing You Don’t Know Jacques in MATTE. :D I am so ridiculously excited.

Details on more colours here.

Update on the polishes, they’ve all arrived pretty much in one piece, (except for the abovementioned YDKJ, which unfortunately leaked a fair bit!), and it’s actually made painting my nails that much harder, because I have to sit around and try on about 5 different colours before I can actually choose just one! There’ve been a couple of days when I’ve gone out with 5 different colours, finishes, brands, you name it, just because the need to make a choice completely defeated me. :p

Anyway! Some shots of a Skin Food taupe with silver shimmer that I love:

Like I said, I do really like the colour, but the wear on it isn’t so good. This is 3 coats plus Seche, and it succumbs to a lot of tip pull. Still, it’s pretty enough that I’ve worn it thrice now even with those issues.
