Second NOTD in two days, I’m on a roll. Let’s see if I can keep this up ;)
I went with a very similar mani to yesterday’s post – a shimmer duochrome with an accent topcoat on the ring fingernails.

Big difference between the two looks though, this time I went with cool colours instead of warm, achieved by using O.P.I. Go On Green and Nicole by O.P.I. Make U Smile.
I much prefer the warm colours to the cool light blue/green from Go On Green and the silver glitter(still love the big hexagons though!)

I’ve heard that there are people you can see who will analyze your features to tell you what your colours are. I want to get this done. I have a feeling that I know what colours work best on me as far as clothing goes – almost all greens, purples with a blue undertone, and a few blues too. I do not own any articles of clothing that are red, orange or yellow. I stay away from warm colours, they clash with my complexion big time. BUT… pinks and golds for makeup look great on me. I wear gold eye shadows and liners all the time, they really work with my eyes (hazel/green). Plus I have pulled off bright yellow nail polish. I guess warms work great as accent colours in my life.
I’m still deciding what it is that rubs me the wrong way about this mani… hah, I think I figured it out, it just clashed with my outfit today ;) I would give this one another chance, but not before I try yesterday’s NOTD again!
Seeng as the silver glitter is from the Justin Beiber collection, I thought I would share a little ancedote about the Beibs... Last year I was a supply teacher. I was working in a rowdy grade 8 classroom. A girl approaches me and here was our conversation:

Her: Miss, do you like Justin Beiber?!!!
Me: No.
Her: Ugh! You're not my friend anymore!
Me: Sorry, I wasn't your friend to begin with.

I had a hard time not chuckling, but I managed to keep a straight face. hah. 


  1. Yeah, I def. do not have the Beiber fever, and I doubt he had much involvement with his nail polish line, amazing colors though!

    Great anecdote, sounds like a typical 8th grader..

  2. I'm not a Bieber fan at all either, but the colors are amazing. I like this color too. :-)

  3. I don't know why I'm keeping the Beiber photo tags on my bottles! One thing about Beiber Fever, it makes me feel nostalgic about my Backstreet Boys days... hehe
