Happy Canada Day!


Happy Canada Day! I don't have any maple leaf stamps/stencils and I didn't have time for freehand so I went with red + black and white glitter. 

Finger Paints "You're So Antsy" is a nice black and white glitter. This one doesn't have any bar glitter... Just medium size squares and smaller bits. This was really packed with glitter... you need to make sure you don't have too much on your brush or the glitters will clump together. 



My mom bought me the OPI Coca-Cola collection from Costco a few weeks ago. This collection came out last summer but to be honest this collection doesn't feel very summery to me... with the exception of Sorry I'm Fizzy Today. The colors are nice though! 

OPI Coca-Cola Red is the perfect red for its namesake! Bright classic red (looks way more orange in my pictures sorry!) and ultra ultra shiny! Shown is 3 coats with no top coat. Formula was good... There was just a touch of VNL at 2 coats.

I've never used an OPI mini before and I was worried it would be difficult but I actually like the mini brush more than the normal one. It's flat like the regular size OPI bottle brush but a bit smaller :) I felt like the opening of the bottle was a bit too small for the brush though so it was a bit hard to wipe the excess off the brush. This dried a bit slowly and I dinged a nail :(

Unfortunately this combo didn't wear at all on me :( I had my first chip at the end of the first day and it was pretty badly chipped after only two days. Not sure if it was the red or the black and white glitter topper bits coming off since I haven't worn either polish before. I'll update this post if I figure it out!
