I bought a lot of nail polishes towards the end of last year, and got a lot for Christmas too, so there's still lots I've not yet tried out. To catch up, I employed the ever popular accent nail technique to allow me to try out two polishes at once.
Here we have OPI Planks a lot from last year's Pirates of the Caribbean collection accented with China Glaze Heli-yum from Up up and away. I think they're rather beaut together.
China Glaze and OPI are my favourite brands right now, I love the new colours they keep bringing out in their collections and am even going back and scouting out the best of collections I missed in the past.
Planks a lot is a murky grey purple and I'm really pleased I bought this after umming and errring for ages about getting something from the Pirates collection. Helli-yum is a lovely deep and bright raspberry shade which I'm also pleased to have bought. I actually love the whole of the Up up and away collection and may make it a mission to slowly acquire the lot :)
These are both lovely creme formulas so they go on really nicely and it's easy to achieve opaque coverage - the best kind of polish in my opinion. Jelly type formulas are not my friend as I hate it when you can see the nail line through the polish.
I took these photos a day or so after painting my nails so that's why you can see some tip wear. It's no reflection on the quality of the polishes though I use base and top coat and still with any polish brand I have wear or chips on the second day. I think it's because I do so much furious typing!
Do you still crave polishes from old collections you missed?
