HNY COUNTDOWN #5 – MALAGA WINE BY OPI

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We have reached the end of our countdown with my FAVORITE POLISH OF 2015- MALAGA WINE BY OPI. I have to thank my mother for this polish, because it was part of her own personal collection. Like I’ve said before, my mother is the Queen of Red & Cotton Candy polish (her go to colors), so I wasn’t expecting to love this color. In fact, I just went in her collection with a blind eye hoping to find something to blog about an this BEAUTIFUL color came about.

MALAGA WINE X DIOR 

Can I just say, that this polish has been on my mind 24/7 since October. I have wanted to paint my nails this color every week since. Literally. I don’t think I have had a polish that I’ve loved this much since Just Spotted the Lizard and Aquadelic.

It paints on so smooth and the color stays deep and rich for- I kid you not, two-frickin-weeks. I have possibly gotten the MOST compliments on this shade when I wore this one out. So yes, Malaga Wine, I bow down to thee.

Thank you all so much for sticking with my count down! And I cannot wait to share with you all the fun new things in store for 2016.

SEASONS GREETINGS MANICURE

 

SEASONS GREETINGS MANICURE 

Here is a fun little mani that I created for the holidays. I didn’t want a manicure that was 100% dedicated to Christmas since New Years is right around the corner. So I combined the two with a festive yet fun gold plated candy cane mani! The gold and shimmer represents the fun of NYE while the candy cane gives the spirit of the holiday season!

OPI SPOTLIGHT – COCA COLA COLLECTION

OPI TWO TO CELEBRATE COCA COLA COLLECTION

The 2014 OPI Coca Cola Collection is another one of my favorites. It sort of had to be- seeing that I am from Georgia and Coca Cola is a huge staple of my home state. So I was excited when OPI released a 2015 Coca Cola release of TWO BRAND NEW shades in the collection.

This Two to Celebrate pack I found a perfect full size portion of the collection. I love Visions of Georgia Green because it reminds me of one of the older empty coke bottles and that translucent green that shimmered in the light. Centennial Celebration has a brilliant silver sheen that would make anyone want to celebrate! I suggest you check out the Coca Cola Collection. It’s easier to get your hands on than the age old secret ingredient!
