The Nail Files: Pastel OPI

March 22, 2013

Whoaaa, what a week! So this is what the week after spring break in college is like.....I don't like it. It's surprising how time flies. The month is almost over, it's almost April! The school semester is almost over! Boy, oh, boy has it been a ridiculously busy week. Lots of frustrating things too.

This has nothing to with makeup or fashion..but does anyone know how to do a screen shot on the Tmobile Samsung Galaxy SII? I also have Nova Launcher...I have tried the Power +  Volume Down button as well as the Power + Home Button. None of them work :( It's really frustrating.. I don't want to have to do a factory reset and then it still not work! Any help on this issue will be gladly appreciated :)

I'm happy to say I went this whole week without wearing any make up, and it felt good! :) 

Although it was a busy, busy, week, I of course had to time do my nails! Spring time calls for gorgeous pastel colors, yaay!

Shout out to the hosts! Thank you!

OPI in You're Such a Budapest
I love that the background is my shelf of nail colors!

I have also used Charming by Revlon, at first I thought they were similar,
but You're Such a Budapest has more of  a 
blue hue to it than Charming does.
I love that their both pastels!
This week I decided to keep it simple & pastel for the spring!

  1. Hi Aishah, this color is part of the Euro Centrale collection and I think it's gorgeous. It's a great spring color.

  2. Hi Aishah,

    Thanks for your comment :)

    For the gold glitter accent I used "Glamorous" by Fergie for Wet N' Wild (link below). I used a toothpick to get the individual glitter pieces and put them on my nail where I wanted them. Hope this helps :)

  3. Pretty color!

    You had asked "question- what does mattifying the coat do?" A mattifying top coat gives a dull, or matte, look to the polish. It doesn't sound very attractive, but often it brings out more of a textured look that can be quite interesting!

  4. I love pastels so much lately! This is a great color!

    Stopping by from the linkup :)

  5. Very pretty!

    Congrats on wearing no makeup all week. I practically did as well as I've been dealing with a breakout :/

    To answer your question, I've been wearing the Revlon Nail Art polish for 5 days and it's staying strong. I don't wear nail polish typically more than a week because I like to change it up. Hope that helps :)

  6. Nice Nails, I may need to get that OPI :)

  7. Believe it or not this was the one color I didn't get from this collection.. I need it though after seeing others wearing it.. I love it on you. Sounds like you've had a super busy week. Hope this weekend gets you some downtime.

  8. Thank you all!

    Lauren- thanks, I love it!
    Kali & Lulubelle- thanks so much for the info!
    Christina- ME TOO! And there are sooo many gorgeous colors too!
    Kimberlee- thank you! Oh, yes that does help!
    Thanks Tara!!
    Holly you should really get this color, you will LOVE it!

  9. I wore that the week of Easter and got so many compliments on how adorable it was! Definitely a perfect pastel purple :)
