This weekend marked the beginning of the annual Great Singapore Sale, and boy was it crowded in town.. With “SALE” signs at every shop, it was literally difficult to navigate the shops which were pretty packed. I had a slow start to my shopping weekend, hanging out with teaplayground. We headed to PNC which is a shop that specialises in nail products. And there, my weekend of nail polish hauling began..

NOTW – Tickle My France-y

As you might have deduced from my numerous NOTWs, nudes are not really my thing.. I prefer bright and bold colours, usually blues, greens, purples.. But once in a while, even I get the urge to go nude.. hehehe..

OPI’s Tickle My France-y is a creamy nude shade that still manages to be interesting to me. Under different lighting, it leans towards different tones. Sometimes it pulls more pinkish nude, sometimes beige-ish, sometimes greyish and very occasionally even lilac.

Tickle My France-y is definitely a nude shade that’s not boring. For those looking for a office-appropriate shade that’s not your normal run-of-the-mill nude or pink, you might want to check this out =)

NOTW – Japanese Rose Garden

Random NOTW from a couple of weeks ago. I don’t normally go for pinks, and I got this mainly cuz the name attracted me.. lol.. I am that shallow.. But it turned out to be so much prettier than I expected. Not your average straight up pink, but leaning rose/mauve with a tinge of purple thrown in. It’s complex I’m telling you..

It’s a more elegant and sophisticated pink that kinda grew on me, despite my aversion to pink..

Somehow or other, I’ve managed to accumulate several unposted NOTWs.. So in a bid to clear the slate so we can start afresh, I’ve decided to spam you guys with five different NOTWs.. lol..

Something blue – Suzi Says Feng Shui.

So dark it’s almost Black – Light My Sapphire

Purplicious – Pamplona Purple

Gorgeous fall shade – Siberian Nights

Simply Fantastic! – Elephantastic Pink

phew.. now we can start on a clean slate!

NOTW – Catch Me In Your Net

I’m slowly trying to get back into the blogging mode after being away in Genting Highlands for the past couple of days. While going through my photos, I found this NOTW which I’d forgotten to post! Since it happens to be one of my favorite NOTWs in recent history, I thought I’d just post it up =)

Catch Me In Your Net is part of OPI’s summer collection, and this shade is totally up my alley. Blue, green, glittery and sparkly? Sign me up immediately!

I love how it screams "Summer!" to me – considering it’s forever summer where I am, this is definitely going to feature in many NOTWs to come. =)

NOTW – Do You Lilac It?

I’m still on my "changes nail colour every couple of days" phase. So here’s yet another NOTW.. though it’s probably more like NOT(next few days).. lol..

I love purple, not just for my eyeshadows! hahaha Do You Lilac It? is a beautiful lilac shade that manages to look interesting but not too pastel-ish or sweet.

OPI has really spoilt me in terms of polish shades and application. I’ve pretty much neglected all my other brands of nail polishes since getting hooked on OPI.. But they’re worth every penny =)

NOTW – Jade is the New Black

Recently I’ve been struck by the urge to change my nail colour every couple of days.

I decided to go with OPI’s Jade is the New Black from the Hong Kong Collection. It’s a very unique shade of green that has drawn lots of comments from my friends and colleagues.

A friend told me it looks like I’ve been poisioned.. A colleague exclaimed really loudly during a meeting "OMG your nails are so green!".. Either way, it’s a shade that draws attention easily. I for one love this shade =)

I’m pretty lousy at scouring sales post for good deals as I’m usually too late. But I did manage to get a couple of items I wanted over last weekend from sg_beauty.

Is it midnight yet?

NOTW – You Don’t Know Jacques

I did a review of the Suede version of You Don’t Know Jacques, and finally got my hands on the original version.

After my disappointment with OPI’s Dazzle Me I’m pretty happy to say that I love love love You Don’t Know Jacques. I don’t quite know how to describe the colour, it’s a cross between grey/taupe/brown that looks super cool against my skintone! I can finally understand why this is a cult favourite amongst nail polish lovers =)

I hereby declare this one of my favourite nail colours to wear! So gorgeous.. Le sigh..

NOTW – Dazzle Me

I’ve been amassing OPI nail polishes since I got myself hooked recently. So far I’ve loved every shade I got, but I’m sad to announce I’ve met with my first disappointment from OPI.

In the bottle, Dazzle Me is a gorgeous blue-green shade with tonnes of multi-colour micro-glitter. It looked like something I would fall in love with. Sad to say, it didn’t quite live up to expectations. It applied very very sheer, like clear polish with glitter. What you see above is four coats, and even then my nail line is still visible from certain angles. Though four coats did make it mildly more acceptable, it didn’t turn out to be quite the colour I expected from the bottle, which was disappointing.

On it’s own, its pretty much a dud for me. However, I’d probably try layering this over some other blue-green shades, as the micro-glitters are really quite pretty.. Don’t you hate it when things don’t live up to your expectations? =(
