day one hundred and sixty five, opi shim-merry chic

don't forget to enter my giveaway where you can win TEN bottles of nail polish!!! (winner is announced in 4 days)

we haven't seen OPI for awhile! this is 'shim-merry chic' from the 2009 opi holiday collection and i am quite pleased with it! it's a dark gold...hints of brown colour with flakes (FLAKES!) mixed throughout. the so un-opi flakey gorgeous-ness adds an incredible layer of AWESOME to this otherwise...pretty but meh polish. i mean...without the flakes it'd still be nice and pretty, but with them!? out of this world 'oh how i love thee' gorgeous. i tried to get some really close shots of my nail to show the flakey goodness and show how it is random on each nail (and is different than the dense flakes found in nfu.oh polishes)...but please excuse my cuticles. nail polish has helped curb my nail biting habit but in times of stress i pick at my cuticles (and i am the worst moisturiser ever...i always forget but i did just find an UHG [ultimate holy grail] hand lotion by bliss, their high intensity hand cream is now my favourite lotion ever so i am trying to get better at it...and always moisturise your nail beds!!! solar oil by CND is my personal favourite...if i don't moisturise my nails they will start to ache! so be good to your hands).

wow i got off topic but it was important! you can get this polish from any retailer that sells OPI (i ridiculously overpaid at a salon and spent £10 on this one bottle) so don't go to a salon and pay full price! my favourite etailers are, and but i know there are tons more!
