Laquerlicious Silver Lining

Hey! I am so looking forward to tonight. I was supposed to work tonight but my plans totally changed. My dad surprised me  with LA Kings tickets for the game tonight! I am so flipping excited! I cannot wait. I've been to games before but never during the playoffs. To know that they're playing for the actual Stanley Cup in this last series makes it even more special. Luckily I was able to get someone to cover my shift. Like there was any way I would be missing this game!

Anyway, I have another Laquerlicious glitter from the recent order I made. I wore it almost two weeks ago. Here's Silver Lining!

Silver Lining is a silver holographic and metallic glitter. It is stunning and so sparkly! As you can see, I used it for an accent nail. What you see is just one coat over OPI A Grape Fit. It's a dense glitter but I'm sure I could have gotten away with a thinner coat. I don't know why I waited so long to try out an accent nail. It's a great way to add something special to the mani but without making it look overwhelming. Silver Lining was a bit thick but it was easy to use and didn't give me any problems. It didn't dry super gritty so I only needed one coat of Rica Glossy Glam.

Silver Lining is a fantastic silver glitter! It's gorgeous and as far as my collection is concerned, it's pretty unique too. I don't have anything like it. I have another one from Laquerlicious, a gold one, that I'll be showing very soon.

I'm planning to paint my nails for the game but I won't be posting that until another day. Fingers crossed that they win tonight! Thank you for stopping by and I hope your day is a great one!

OPI A Grape Fit

Hey! How was your weekend? I hope it was a great one. Mine was really nice. I worked on Saturday and then on Sunday I was off. I went shopping with the family and ate a nice lunch after. Then last night my LA Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks in game 7 during overtime and now they're going to the Stanley Cup Final! It was such a thrilling game and I almost had multiple heart attacks. I cannot wait for the last and final series to start.

When compared to my glitters, I don't have a large amount of cremes in my collection. They've never been my absolute favorite because usually given the choice I gravitate toward sparkly and glittery shades. Still, cremes are beautiful in their own right and today I have an amazing one that I absolutely love. Here is OPI A Grape Fit.

A Grape Fit is a beautiful medium grape creme. While I don't have them to compare, A Grape Fit is darker than OPI Do You Lilac It? and much lighter than China Glaze Grape Pop. It's pretty much perfect if you don't want something too pale or too dark. The formula was seriously fantastic! It might have the best formula in a creme that I've ever tried. It applied beautifully and evenly on the nail. It was nearly opaque in just one coat but I needed a second to make it completely opaque. I hardly had any clean up at all, which is always something I'm happy about.

Purples are my favorites and A Grape Fit is perfect! I already put a glittter on top of it but I'll be showing that in my next post. Stay tuned for that! In the mean time, I hope your week is off to a great start!
