The Lost Archives!

OPI - Merry Midnight. I got this and the mini 4-pack from

I didn't do the polish justice though. It probably should have had a third coat.

And I used OPI's quick dry top coat over it, which really sucked. It went on kinda dry and sticky.

But even with those issues, this polish is TO DIE FOR! I absolutely love it. It's in my "already worn but must wear again soon" basket which sits on top of my untrieds box. Yes, I'm a little nutty!!

OPI Shim-Merry Chic. This was one of the mini bottles. I loved this too. It's fascinating!

Plus I felt it was nuetral enough to wear to work. Hehe.

This monstrosity was taken before I broke my nails. :( This was Wet-n-Wild Craze "Lust" with Cover Girl "City Lights" on the tips.

A little over the top, but I think I wore this somewhere at the end of August? So, it felt very summery and pretty. I did not wear this one to work.

Here is lust all by itself.

AND again with City Lights.

I love the blueish flash Lust has. I was looking for a fuschia JUST like this! For my toes though, I don't usually wear colors this bright on my fingers!

Zoya "Pasha". I wore this to kick off a week-long trial. So, I got out all my boring nuetrals for the week and lined them up. Pasha went first. I shouldn't call this boring. It was actually quite nice. Wore well too.

MMMMMMMMManicurist of Seville. This TOTALLY STOLE MY HEART. I have never liked a red nail polish before, but this was true LOVE! It is the perfect crimson with a touch of pink red to it. I wish I had taken better pictures of it. This does not do it justice at all. I wore this for about a week and never got tired of it. I also worked as an extra on a film set in the 1930's and the makeup artist and wardrobe lady both complimented me on what an awesome color it was! This is also in my basket "to be worn again soon". It's going on my top 20 list as well!

Here is a shot of Heirloom Organza next to my coffee. Hehe. I was being silly. Loved this polish. I felt quite sophisticated with it for some reason.

China Glaze "Thunderbird". Another AWESOME RED that I did not get a worthy picture of. This is more shimmery and orange-toned red, but gosh is it pretty! My husband and I used to go to a lot of antique car shows and this definitely reminds me of the paint jobs on some of my favorites.


  1. I love pasha on you. They are all great. :) I just broke my nails too. :( Like Arnold would say, "They'll be back!"

  2. I loved Manicurist of Seville too! Then I compared it with my bottle of OPI My Throne for a Cranberry Scone (another favorite) and realized's an easier to find near-exact dupe.

  3. Great swatches, I love Merry Midnight too!!!

  4. Gorgeous polishes. I don't know what I like the best. Those OPI's are beautiful. I have to get them.

  5. I love it! Very creative!That's actually really cool.
