Midtown Magic

I love this. I know it's everyone's standout from the Metro Collection, but I need to add in my love. Midtown Magic is a dark beauty. I've seen it described as a dark burgundy, but it looks like a deep chocolate brown with copper flecks to me. Whatever it is, it's gorgeous and I totally love it.

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe is a gorgeous green sparkle bomb from a previous year of Orly's holiday collection. It has a blue-green base with lots of emerald/kelly green sparkles. This awesome combo results in the entire thing looking like a nice pine tree color. It catches the light beautifully, and I got lots of compliments while I was wearing it.

Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous

I had an occasion to dress up in September, and I went and got my nails did. Because I was rockin' a bright blue dress with sparkly gunmetal shoes, I went with a sparkly gunmetal polish. I heart the matchy, matchy.

Lucerne-tainly look Marvelous is from OPI's Switzerland collection from fall of 2010. Its a shimmery gunmetal grey -- maybe a foil? It's close if it's not a true foil. It is SUCH a great color for us pale, cool-toned girls. Pictures below.

Zoya Jem

When I saw the previews for the Zoya Mirrors collection, I knew I needed to have Jem. Then I found a blogger who was having a mystery grab bag blog sale (10 for 27!) and this gem came in it (hah, Jem/Gem!)

Jem is a lovely purpley-red color with a lot of shimmery goodness. It pulls redder on me than most people (which is odd, because I tend to pull things bluer). Pictures 'neath:

CG in the City

So that hiatus happened. I apologize for the delay in posting. It's been the crazy busy season at work and September and October zipped by before I had a chance to catch my breath.

Today, I have for you CG in the City. It's been posted everywhere at this point, but here's my two cents. I didn't expect to love this given a lot of the negative buzz in the blogosphere. It's a multi-color glitter in a clear base. It took me three coats to build it up to a mostly opaque finish. Once I had done that, though, I adored how it looked!

I'm a sucker for all things silver, and this just looked like a silver glitter bomb on my finger. I have two pictures below for you. What do you think?
