NOTD: Ciaté London Mini Nail Polish in Kaleidoscope

One coat of Ciaté London's Mini Nail Polish in Kaleidoscope. Silver Hexagonal Glitter in a Sheer Iridescent Blue Base.

Soooo...when my OPI Make It Iconic Nail Lacquer Collection in Alpine Snow started to chip, I decided to top it with glitter instead of changing the color because I was having a lazy moment. Don't judge.

Kaleidoscope is a mix of large and small bits of silver hexagonal glitter. The thing that sets this one apart though is the fact that the glitter is in a sheer iridescent blue base that looks gorgey over white polish; and creates a multi-color effect when you move your hands. Application is easy here; but you do need to play with the glitter pieces a bit to get them the way you want. No big overall; but something to keep in mind.

NOTD: OPI Make It Iconic Nail Lacquer Collection in Alpine Snow

Two coats of OPI's Make It Iconic Nail Lacquer Collection in Alpine Snow. Stark White Creme.

White is the best nail color of all. time. You can't tell me different.

Alpine Snow is the shade to turn to when you want something chic yet striking and playful all at the very same time. It's a shade that's clean and pure while being head-turning, and it will forever be my favorite! The formula here is good - it reaches opacity quickly, but dries to a chalky finish, so you definitely need to swipe on the top coat. It's perfect; you need it. Period.

NOTD: OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Envy the Adventure

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Envy the Adventure. Green Creme.

Babes, green cremes don't typically do it for me, but OMG this bad boy right here is a game. changer.

Envy the Adventure is a gorgeous to the tenth power green creme that is a 100% lemming in the nail polish world. In other words...get. it. now. The formula here is pure brilliance. It looks thin during application; but builds to a rich opacity in just two coats, and it just a total stunner. Definitely one of my new faves!

NOTD: OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Berry Fairy Fun

Three coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Berry Fairy Fun. Purple with Scattered Pink and Purple Shimmer.

Le sigh...purples rarely do it for me; but I truly cannot get enough of this pretty!

Berry Fairy Fun is a seriously magical color that will appeal to you pink, purple, and even red fans! The base purple shade has red undertones which give it that berry cast; while the scattered shimmer creates a multidimensional feel that is simply irresistible. This one is v thin, so you do need a few coats to bring it to full opacity; but the streak-free, ultra-shiny finish make it a must!

NOTD: OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Black to Reality

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Black to Reality. Blackened Cherry Red Shimmer.

Ladies if a lemming is what you've been looking for this one will not disappoint.

Black to Reality is a gorgeous shade that is super multi-faceted - looking vampy in the shade, then exploding with stunning shimmer in sunlight. The formula here is good. It's a little too thin to be a OCW; but it builds quickly in just two swipes and looks perfect. Definitely one of my new faves!

NOTD: OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in March In Uniform

Two coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in March In Uniform. Navy Creme.

Tbh, I'm kiiiiind of navy-ed out after all of the navy hues that popped up in the fall and winter collections this past year; but I'm still loving this shade because it's the tiniest bit different from the rest of the blues out there.

March In Uniform is a rich shade that is perfect for the chillier months; but what makes it special? It actually leans blurple, so it has a multifaceted feel. Though definitely dark; I found that it applied slightly thin, making two coats a necessity. Definitely a must if you're looking for a shade that's not your basic navy.

NOTD: OPI Pop Culture Nail Lacquer Collection in Pop Star

Three coats of OPI Pop Culture Nail Lacquer in Pop Star. Poppin' Purple Texture.

Purple, purple, purple! I do love a good purple when the temps start to drop; and this bad boy is a double beauty whammy due to the color + that playful pop texture!

Pop Star is a great transitional shade - being light enough for those last days of summer, yet dark enough for those first days of autumn. On the nail there's a subtle blue holographic shift; however, it's not visible in photos {womp womp}; nevertheless, the red undertones make it complementary for everyone! This one applies v sheer; but builds beautifully, and has insane staying power. Dig it!

Two coats of China Glaze Ready to Wear FW'18 Nail Lacquer Collection in You Don't Know Jacket. Deep Navy Creme.

Gotta love a deep, dark hue for winter, amiright?!

You Don't Know Jacket is one of those looks-black-but-isn't navy blues. It's deep and dark and utterly delicious, with a formula that is f-l-a-w-l-e-s-s. A lot of polish clings to the brush, so make sure to wipe it well on the lip of the bottle before applying directly to your nail. This shade gave full coverage in one coat; but I opted for two to make it ultra-vampy!

Three coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Tinker, Thinker, Winker?. Sparkling Silver.

Winter is the one time of year I go wild for silver shades; so you know I simply couldn't resist this shimmering stunner!

Tinker, Thinker, Winker? feels like a winter wonderland on your fingers! It gives off a frosty and enchanting vibe whenever it catches the light, and pairs perfectly with pastels and sequins. The formula is thin {one coat would serve as a nice, sparkly topper to other colors}; but builds to opacity fairly quickly. If you're looking for a way to extend the holidays for a few more weeks, this bad boy is the key!

Two coats of China Glaze Ready to Wear FW'18 Nail Lacquer Collection in Central Parka. Olive Green Creme.

Can I just take a moment to rave over the ultra-amazing formula that is Central Parka?! Like omg babes, this bad boy is pure awesomeness!

Central Parka is another one of those ugly pretty/pretty ugly hues that I personally l-o-v-e for sweater weather. As I mentioned before, the formula is pure perfection; but even better is that gorgeous, glossy finish. Absolutely obsessed with this baby!

Three coats of OPI Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Nail Lacquer Collection in Dreams Need Clara-fication. Icy Blue Creme.

Le sighmints and baby blues always got me like whoa, and Dreams Need Clara-fication is no exception!

Babes, this blue was made for the winter months! It has that bright yet pastel vibe that pairs beautifully with everything in your wardrobe - from lights to darks. Formula is perfection. Yes, it takes multiple coats for full coverage; but it's well worth it because the consistency is brilliant!

NOTD: Essie Concrete Glitter Nail Polish Collection in Stay Up Slate

Two coats of Essie Concrete Glitter Nail Polish Collection in Stay Up Slate. Textured Glitter Slate Gray.

Babes, I was super excited when I spotted this beauty because what is more rocker chic glam than a crushed crystal textured polish?! Um hi, nothing!

Stay Up Slate is a brilliant shimmering slate gray with a kiss of lilac undertone that is soooo pretty for winter. The textured finish makes top coat unnecessary {natch!}; but don't skip the base coat because you will literally die trying to remove this without! I was a little disappointed in wear-time. Typically textured polishes last more than a week without chips, but this one started chipping in a few days which was a pain. Aside from that I loved; but I'm not sure if I recommend. Womp womp!

happy new year babes!


"I've learned a lot this year. I learned that things don't always turn out the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I've learned that there are things that go wrong that don't always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I've learned that some broken things stay broken, and I've learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you."
