[Review] OPI: Simmer and Shimmer

Glitter polishes are something I truly adore. Almost nothing is too OTT when it comes to glitter - the more opaque the better. And I'm always on the lookout for more.

After a miserable week in which I googled the death out of every OPI glitter that is in existence, H (most patient and longsuffering of friends) gifted me with OPI: Simmer and Shimmer, from the Burlesque collection.

Although I didn't think much of the movie, one coat of this was enough to satisfy all the glitter cravings I had built up in the past week. RELIEF! Swatch NOW.

Mandarin in front; Peach at the back. Cute, right?

[Review] OPI: You're a Doll! (and other work-appropriate colors)

So, the time came to actually attend a graduate induction day. Since we're all human and because we all know that first impressions really do count (no, really), I did spend at least 30 minutes figuring out what to wear (tasteful and tailored black dress + pumps) and what not to wear (total bling). Then I realized I hadn't actually dressed my nails...
