NOTD: OPI Ginger Bells


This is two coats of OPI's Ginger Bells from the Holiday Wishes Winter 2009 Collection. A Deep Orange Creme.

My first thoughts of this polish...it's Thanksgiving in a bottle. The color is this gorgeous burnt orange/brown/brick shade that instantly makes you think of Pumpkin or Apple Pie and the holidays - exactly why I used it for my Thanksgiving mani this year. The formula was absolutely perfect - I achieved full opacity in one coat, but decided to go for a second just to be on the safe side. This one, to me, was similar to China Glaze's Desert Sun; but definitely not a dupe, as Desert Sun was more butterscotch/tan leaning. That said, you don't need both in your collection, as they are similar enough.

Accessories: Pearlescent Love Ring Set in Silver / Clear via Forever 21.

Cool ring, too.

Awesome, love this trend of color. Especially, this season. I do find myself going back to "Gunmetal" by Sally Hansen's Xtreme wear, a lot these days.

One of my favorite post of the week that I always look forward too.

I still love my Xtreme-Wear's Pink Satin. Its a metallic color that goes great with what ever I'm wearing.
