Sephora by OPI Slushied

Sephora by OPI Slushied




I’m wondering how long it’s going to take me to write 2014 every time I date something. Apparently, today I couldn’t even remember that it’s January so I was typing February on a whole bunch of orders and stuff at work. I’m an idiot, but I least I caught myself before causing all these accounting nightmares. I’m feeling pretty good about myself right now since I am continuing the trend of swatching from my untried stash so I hope that I can keep this going despite all the new Spring collections that are bound to start popping up any day now. Sweet Baby Jesus, please help me resist temptation with your sparkling eyes and wondrous curls. When I was putting some polishes away, I looked at my melmer drawer that houses all of my Sephora by OPI polishes, and I realized that I haven’t swatched even half of my stash so I picked this one up because I had recently swatched another beautiful blue. Let’s take a look at Sephora by OPI Slushied.

Sephora by OPI Slushied 1aSephora by OPI Slushied 2Ah, Slushied! You had so much promise. I swooned when I saw swatches online, and I refused to read anything negative about you. You were so pretty, bright and delectable. When Sephora started slashing prices on their now discontinued SOPI line, I jumped at the chance to get a few colors that I had missed out on. Sephora by OPI Slushied really is a great color, but the formula leaves a lot to be desired: it is thin, runny and streaky. Oh, how you wound my heart Slushied! I had to apply 4 thin coats to get even coverage so I know most of you are already thinking, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” Sadly, I agree. Since I had swatched OPI No Room For the Blues earlier in the week, I felt that these could be dupes so I confronted them, bottle to bottle in a battle of the dupes.

Slushied vs No Room For The Blues 2bIt might be difficult to tell from my pictures, but these are not 100% dupes although they are amazingly close. Slushied is slightly more green leaning and is a little darker. No Room For The Blues is a tad lighter and more crisp. In this battle of the dupes, No Room For The Blues comes out the winner because of its superior formula and because you are more likely to be able to find it. I like both colors but sometimes you just don’t want to deal with a shitty formula, you know?

So what do you think? Are these blues calling your name? Are you sad that the SOPI brand is no more? To be honest, I am a little sad because I remember how I went bananas for Metro Chic when it first came out. Ahhh…polish memories. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.


OPI It’s My Year

OPI It’s My Year




Woo! Last post of the year! Since I’ve been such a slacker lately, I told myself that I would definitely write a post on the last day of 2013 just so that I can end and start on the right foot. So far my New Year’s Eve has been pretty uneventful which is exactly what I wanted. I had a yummy dinner with my family and now we’re just snacking and watching movies. When I was trying to decide what polish to wear tonight, I chose the most fitting polish of all my untrieds: OPI It’s My Year.

OPI It's My Year 1aOPI It's My Year 2I still can’t believe that this gorgeous polish has been hiding in my untrieds stash for probably over a year. OPI It’s My Year is a gorgeous berry purple with tons of gold shimmer throughout. I keep finding amazing untried polishes in my melmers which makes me realize a couple of things: 1) I really shouldn’t be buying more polish (at least not tons) and 2) How many more hidden gems must I have hiding in there??? The formula on this is a little sheer so I did have to apply 3 coats to get full coverage, but it’s totally worth it. This shade is part of the Miss Universe Collection from 2011 in case you were wondering.

I mentioned that we had a yummy dinner tonight so here is a little peek:

So, I hope that you are all enjoying your NYE and that you are staying safe. Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting my blog; it means so much to me. I chose to wear this polish today because it’s called It’s My Year. 2014 will be my year; I hope it will be yours as well.

Much Love,
