If it is not clear by now, I went to Ulta today "just to look around." Pfft. But in my defense, I have finished my Christmas shopping for my family already. Kind of. Almost.
Onto bling-tastic Dazzled by Gold. This polish is freakin' sparkly, folks! It is really too opaque to be a topcoat, I think, but it is on the sheer side, so this above is four coats. Totally worth it, in my opinion. It's a yellow-gold, not a bronze-gold, and it the light it practically glows. Another pic kind of gives a better idea of its appearance? (I took it outside...my neighbors gave me some concerned looks as I stood in freezing temperatures on the front porch taking pictures of my fingers, by the way...anyone else ever experience that?)
And now, Holiday Glow. I absolutely love this; again, not nearly as beautiful on camera as it is in real life. A medium brown with warm gold and brown shimmer. It's very chic and snazzy...I feel like it would be awesome paired with a little black dress at a cocktail party. And now I only wish I attended more soirees and sophisticated dinner parties and stuff like that so that I could show this one off more. Either way, I'm going to be wearing it a lot. Michelle at All Lacqured Up said it, and I agree: OPI does pop out their best colors for the holidays.
