start of something new :]

Since last night, I've had this urge to just totally redo my blog. Instead of a place to vent about feelings & such, I want to start talking about my favorite things--make up & beauty products ! How excitinggg. I know everyone & their mother is doing one of these now but I don't care how many people read it. As long as I can share what I know with just ONE person, that'll make me happy. But I still have a lot to do, like think up of a name for my blog & find or make a layout. I used to make layouts on LiveJournal but I forgot how to ! & I guess the HTML between Blogger & LJ are two complete different things.

Anyway, on to the good stuff. My first review ! :D A few days ago, I went to Sephora & picked up a Sephora by OPI polish. I got What A Broad. It's a rich, pretty grape color. I have pictures but forgive me for the sloppiness around the cuticle. I just did my nails last night & was dying to go to bed.

What A Broad w/flash.

What A Broad w/no flash.

I am so in love with this color. It's so pretty ! I already have another Sephora by OPI polish in Never Enough Shoes but that one was a bit of a disappointment. It looks absolutely lovely in the bottle. It's black with tons & tons of shimmer. With the amount of shimmer you see in the bottle, you'd think it would come up on your nails but it doesn't ;[ You can bareeeeeely see it, but I'm still keeping the damn thing.

With these two Sephora by OPI nail polishes, the consistency is perfect--not too thick, not too runny. The brush is thin, unlike some polishes that have those super wide, awkward brushes that only allow you to get one swipe of color at a time. You have so much more freedom to swipe color wherever you want, like the hard-to-reach area of nail right next to the cuticle. With a topcoat, I've found these do last a pretty long time. I wanna say like 5 days. That's a long time for me since I like to switch it up often. I plan on getting more of these. I hear I'm With Brad is a super cool dark red & one of my good friends has Under My Trenchcoat, this really pretty yet odd looking nude-taupe color. We can't decide what we think of that one haha.

So the verdict on SbO is two, pretty painted thumbs up ! :]

Hope you enjoyed the first post ♥
