Also, I'm not sure how I managed to go all summer without a white manicure, so does this count? Sorry if mine are not the greatest photos! This polish was harder to capture than I thought it would be (at least, it was, with the time I had).
Four coats with SV.
SO BEAUTIFUL. I'm not sure why I did four coats of this polish because it's opaque at three ... I completely zoned out while doing this swatch. On the bright side, the dry time was super fast and the formula was really amazing for a sheer, and, as Naz said, it will make your nails look SO good even if you have "this ~gorgeous~ yellow gradient thing goin' on." Basically, what I'm saying is that you have NO EXCUSE not to get this polish. I don't know why it took me so long! If you are looking for an amazing white sheer, this probably is the easiest one to get.
I'm sure you know that Don't Touch My Tutu! is from last spring's amazeballs OPI NYC Ballet collection. Utterly. Amazeballs. (Check out Care to Danse? from last month's Skinny Dipping post!) I picked up You Callin' Me A Lyre? in this particular haul, too, so now my OPI NYC Ballet collection is complete! \o/ However, I think I'll take a break from blogging them in my Skinny Dipping posts because I like a little variety, so you probably won't see them here for a while.
Whatcha think? Is this an appropriate end-of-summer white, or an even better bridesmaid mani option? Part of me is entertaining the idea of wearing Barre My Soul or even Steady As She Rose because, eh, why not.
Before I sign off, here's a little insight as to why things are going to be crazy bananas in the next few weeks:
- Mayer Hawthorne: tonight!
- "Hannibal" DVD release + "S.H.I.E.L.D." premiere: 6 days (this is kind of a big deal for me, okay)
- Best friend wedding extravaganza eleganza: 10 days
- "Breaking Bad" series finale: 11 days ;_____;
- Julieta Venegas in NEW YORK CITY: 18 days
- Neutral Milk Hotel: 23 days
Oh, and work is still insane. But I'll totally be blogging about the fun stuff, so get ready for that. Get. Ready.
Uh, so juuuuuuuuuuust in case you didn't know how excited I am for tonight's concert ... yeah. (If you happen to go to this show and you see a chubby, short Asian girl chair dancing upstairs, sorry.) 2013 has been SUCH a baller year for shows!
With any luck, it won't take me quite so long to respond to comments in the future! Ugh, I feel like it's disrespectful of me to take more than a couple of days to get back to you, so thank you for bearing with me. Y'all take care, and I'll try to pull it together so I can sound somewhat coherent on Friday.
P.S. Check out Anna's pick! Hint: It was my first Skinny Dipping polish. ;)
