I've Been Slacking Lately!

I have been so busy lately that I missed one day and feel off now. It is crazy how busy life can get sometimes. Today I let everyone sleep in, heck even I slept in. But everyone else is still sleeping and I am just going to let them. Why not right? Once they get up it is going to be cleaning and errands all day, so they might as well relax now. Plus then I can put off the inevitable and watch some Entourage. I haven't seen a single one this season yet, so I figure I can sort of watch one while I do my post this morning. 

On to the game I posted Thursday Night
Two of these are OPI Cuckoo for This Color & two are China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald.

Some people were close and could tell the difference between the two, but they had it backwards. Here is the answer.
OPI took three coats and was a bit streaky. China Glaze was smooth and less frosty than OPI. With only two coats OPI would have been a bit lighter than Emerald Fitzgerald. With OPI you get a bit more options in that you can go with two coats for a lighter look or add another to make it this dark.  But I preferred the application of China Glaze.

HEre's another OPI from the Swiss collection. This is Yodel Me on My Cell. This was so hard to capture. It is a perfect teal shimmer. This was three coats. This has some visible polish lines as well, but it just didn't do it for me. I will probably give this one to one of my kids.

I guess I better get my weekend chores started. Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Thank you so much for the comparsion Cuckoo and Emerald!

  2. wow those are so close! i picked up Yodel on my Cell but it looks green on me. infact it kinda looks like Cuckoo. Hmmm. I hope i didn't get a bad label!

  3. I still can't tell the difference! Either way, it's they're both pretty.
