Recent NOTD: OPI Bogota Blackberry

I keep saying how very many reds I have, so I figured I should wear one for a change. OPI Bogota Blackberry, a deep red shimmer, seemed like a good match for the recent arrived crisp fall weather we're having (though I will not put away my summer clothes for another month at least, because I'm sure it will be 80 degrees again before snow flies). In my head, this one is called Borgata Blackberry, thanks to a friend I have on the East coast who likes to go to that casino.







I used two coats of color plus my regular base and top coats and had no issues. The shimmer doesn't disappear once it's on the nail but it doesn't go all brushstrokey, either, and the color seems like it'd be pretty versatile, not that I tend to worry over much anymore about my nails coordinating with my outfits.

I will be putting an entry up about my 500 followers contest a bit later today, so check back for that if you're interested.

  8. Interestingly, it looks a LOT like the concubine(MAC) swatch I tried the other night while I was in the store. It's beautiful, but I passed on it. I think I'll go for the OPI version instead.

  9. I think this color complements your skin tone nicely!

    I think the color I have the least of in my stash is red... I love reds, but for some reason I'm always buying blues, greens, purples, and holos. I need to expand my red stash, LOL!
