So technically it’s Tuesday, not Monday but I was far too tired yesterday. I didn’t get home from work until just before 9 and then had to eat etc, so just didn’t have the time. Sorry bloggers. I’ve also been feeling a little demotivated for the past few days, not so much blogging but life in general. A few things got said to me last week at work – both by people I consider friends and a manager. It just left me feeling a little kinda like “Is that really how people see me? Do people really think that?”. It’s really daft to get upset about, as they probably didn’t mean for it to upset me, but I am really a sensitive soul. It was mostly about positive sexism towards female engineers and also how it must be difficult for me in a male dominated environment. These are 2 things I never think about until people bring them up and then the awkward turtle comes out to play. Anyway, enough of my rambling an onto the pictures and review.
I got this set of 2 OPI polishes in TK Maxx for around £13. I am a sucker for OPI and a sucker for pink. This was a winner. This was released last year for breast cancer awareness, so OPI donate a pound. Pah. A measeley pound; I suppose it is better than nothing, but I’ve decided to save more and donate to cancer research regularly. I lost my Granny to cancer when I was 8 and it terrifies me that 1 in 3 of us will know someone with cancer. So at the moment, I’m donating only £3 a month but it is better than nothing. And no, I didn’t do the no make-up selfie. One look on my facebook page and there is plenty of no make-up photos. I also don’t do selfies, although I do have one coming up on the blog when I can get the courage…
The formula of Pinking of you was not the best. It was quite thin and watery, drying streaky. As a result this was a 3/4 coater. It took an age to dry, but the result was a lovely glossy, Barbie pink. More than a Glimmer is the showstopper here. It is a very pale and milky pink, with different coloured hex glitter. The formula is far too sheer to wear alone, so I layered it over Pinking of You. I think the result was stunning. I also think pinking of you would look great in a jelly sandwich. Drying time for this one was great, within 5 minutes. Pinking of you dries to a matte finish, so I skipped the topcoat. I got a full 5 days of wear with only minor chipping. Massive winner.
Have you tried OPI and would you wear this combo? What’s your spring polish of the moment?
