"Where is boom?"

This is anther one from "The Haul" - probably the first one I gravitated towards becuase
a) This is my first OPI (!!!)
b) I looove vampy colours!

This is OPI's Boris and Natasha

I wasn't happy with the application - no idea if it was the polish or me but every time i put another coat on it took more off at the base of my nail.

I thought it would look nice with my new China Glaze matte magic over the top...

No... just... no...

Matte-fying usually looks best done on a glittery or shimmery polish. And that's called cuticle drag. How long did you wait between each coat? For jellies sometimes you just gotta wait a lil longer or use a lighter hand when polishing. I REALLY like that colour, btw. I've actually never heard of it.

You know I adore vampies!
Yeah mattifying a jelly or creme just turns it meh.

PerryPie - I think you're right - though i did wait about 20 minutes [1 episode of Scrubs] before putting the last coat on...

Evil Angel - lol i'm learning that fast!

Its such a pretty color on you. Dang, now I'm gonna have to try out the one in my untrieds and see if its such a bitch for me too. Sometimes, I hate OPI

I've got Here Today Aragorn Tomorrow, from one of the latest OPI ranges. It's a deliciously dark shade of green. There's Suzi In The Pyrenese Skies too, that's very similar but is blue instead of green. Check them out. :)

Scandalous - i'll have to give it a proper go soon!

L.Noir - I need more OPI's! Those sound shmexeh!
