Twinsie Tuesday: Sweet Sixteen


Why hello there.

Sorry for my slight absence over the weekend.  Wedding planning has officially started and my weekends are becoming hijacked.  But I of course made time to swatch my Twinsie Tuesday polish for you beautiful people.

This week's challenge is to post a polish that we would've worn back in our teenage years, hence "sweet sixteen" manicure.  While I wasn't crazily into polish then, I did like pink.  While purple was (and continues to be) my favorite color, my friends used to joke that my entire wardrobe was pink -- since I organize my closet by color, it was hard to miss the tidal wave of pink when they came over and I opened my closet door. 

Thus, it went without saying that I chose Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink for today.  An amazingly hot bubblegum-esque pink, this beauty dries matte but packs an insane sparkle.  With or without a top coat, the silver shimmer certainly makes its presence known, and this polish is all the better for it.  

Application was perfect; this was three coats (I think?) with topcoat.





Sorry for the yellowish hands in the second picture but I had to make the epidermal sacrifice to accurately demonstrate how neon and bright this polish is.  Omg, the sixteen year old inside of me is squealing with delight right now.

My guess is that many of my Twinsies will choose pink for today's challenge.  Check to see if I'm right by clicking their links below!
