Butter London Heavy Medal Collection

The 2014 Winter Olympic games started tonight in Sochi, Russia! I love the Olympics… it is so nice to see all of these countries come together under one roof! Of course, I will be routing for my favorite snow boarder who has won 2 gold medals on the half pipe, Mr. Shaun White! But this is a post about nail polish here Andrea… I got to get myself back on track! I purchased the limited edition Butter London Heavy Medal Collection that was made for the 2012 Summer Olympics that of course, were in London!

Here is what the packaging looked like:

And my polishes:

  • Diamond Geezer – this is the silver polish… I LOVE this polish. I wear it a lot… way more than I thought I would. Silver is a beautiful polish color but can be kind of unusual for some people!
  • The Full Monty – this is the gold polish. I love how metallic it is. I see myself reaching for this polish when I am looking for a simple, yet trendy polish to wear! And like I said above… I will be sporting this GOLD polish the night Shaun White competes!
  • The Old Bill – last but definitely not bad at all… we have the bronze shade. This is a great shade! It is a beautiful rose gold color… but more bronze. I wear this one A LOT! Great for every month.

I loved getting this collection during the summer games. It was awesome to wear all the colors while the 2012 Olympics were happening! Unfortunately, they did not come out with this collection again for the 2014 Olympics… but I am sure someone is bound to be selling this Heavy Metal collection on Amazon or E-bay. ALSO, Butter London sells each of these polishes individually. Butter London has a lot of great nail polish shades! I have a few more from this brand that are not from this collection! I will be sure to post about them soon. Who will you be routing for in the 2014 Olympics?!

OPI Spider Man Collection Review

Hello all! Sorry I have not been able to post daily. I am in Houston for the holidays visiting my boyfriend! Although, I noticed that on my trip, I have been wearing all the shades or lacquers from the OPI Spider Man collection. The “mini” collection came in four different colors!

Here are the swatches and bottles in the collection:

The colors from left to right are:

  1. Your Web or Mine? (light pink shade) – this is a great color. It is more pastel and pearl than glitter. I like this color because it is quite simple.
  2. Into the Night (blue shade) – this is a really cool blue. I enjoy all the different shades within this blue lacquer. You can make it lighter or darker depending on the amount applied.
  3. The dark pink polish is very odd. I know for sure that I got this color in the collection. But, online, this color is supposed to be a blackish lacquers. Anyways, the dark color pink is very cool! It turns out to be a raspberry glitter shade.
  4. Just spotted the Lizard (light green/brownish) – I LOVE this color. It is a phenomenal every day, simple shade. Sometimes, I make this lacquer light by applying only one coat. It turns out to be a rose gold/greenish shade. The darker you go, the more green the lacquer gets.

If you are interested in any of these colors and shades, you can still find this collection online on Ebay or Amazon. Here is a link to the one on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/OPI-Amazing-Spider-Man-Collection-Spotted/dp/B007XX4EOK

Let me know if any of you have tried any of these shades. This is a really cool and unique collection! Tata for now!

P.S. here is a picture I took at the Rockefeller Center right before Christmas of the extremely large tree. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a safe, happy New Year!
