Want to See Some OPI?

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I am trying to combat a caffeine withdrawal headache at the moment. I decided to give up soda this year. I usually have a soda a day in the afternoon or evening. I started with the afternoon headache as soon as I quit. It has been getting better only coming back every few days, but today I barely had my coffee this morning so the headache is in rare form. Lucky me! I took some Advil, so I hope by the time I finish this post the headache is gone. (Fingers crossed)

I haven't posted another brand of polish on here in a long time, but today I am making an exception. I won't provide a review but I will post the pictures. I went shopping with Juan Friday night to go pick up a book for my daughter and get my eyebrows threaded and while walking through the mall, we walked into Trade Secrets which I believe must have all the Katy Perry OPI's that people are missing from their stores! They had a complete set up in the front and the back of the store. A display full of just Shatter and the Serena Williams colors with yup - more Shatter! I guess Shatter is not a big thing here yet - because not one bottle was gone! I have some old Cover Girl Crackle that has seen better days, so I was excited to grab this one. While looking around, Juan informed me that he was reading JBrobs blog Polish Insomniac and she was looking for this one, so we grabbed her one too. I email back and forth with Jessika on occasion - she has served as a Cult Nails sounding board on more than one occasion, so that had a lot to do with it. But yes if you have a blog and it's on my blogroll and you comment here often, odds are Juan is reading your blog! He likes to get involved. Sometimes I have to tell him to dial it down cause it just creeps me out a little. This is my passion - he can go play his guitar! But really it is so sweet that he gets involved and wants to see what is out there. He is very involved in Cult Nails!

SO ANYWAY - after some polish haulin' which I haven't done in forever, I couldn't wait to get home and play. I grabbed the mini bottles of the Katy Perry collection, Shatter and Glow Up Already from the Burlesque collection.

It was like Christmas when I came home, the girls went nuts for the Katy Perry collection and Shatter. (Imagine that, in a house full of pre-teen & teen girls!) Each girl wanted to try a different color. I couldn't wait to try Glow Up Already!

Here is Glow Up Already
This is a pure glitter polish. The main glitter showcased is gold in color with almost a green tinge to it. But there is also some pink, aqua and orange glitter thrown in. This was so blingy! I wish the camera could capture all the brightness of the glitter! I almost didn't want to put Shatter over it. But I was in the mood to play, so I went ahead and added the Shatter.

Gah! Friggin' Gorgeous! What else can I say?

This was the next morning in the sun. I loved this manicure! So cool! Man I wish Cult Nails thought to bring back crackle style polish first! HA! 

Speaking of Cult Nails, I wanted to post a picture of my nails after wearing My Kind of Cool Aid for 7 days. I couldn't go any longer because I HAD to play with the Shatter. I think I may try the Shatter over My Kind of Cool Aid soon though! Anyway you can see a small chip beginning on my index finger and some extremely minor tip wear. Not too shabby if I do say so myself!

And just a little hint, I am planning a major give-away! The give-away will have some of my favorite makeup items like Nars Orgasm blush, Dior Black Out mascara, Bobbi Brown Pink Raspberry Lip Balm, Some fun accessories and more(like some Cult Nails Nail Lacquer! We are working out the details still. I'm unsure if I am going to do it for number of followers here, likes on Facebook, Twitter Followers, Registered User's on the Cult Nails site or once a certain number of bottles gets sold. This give-away is intended purely to help spread the word of Cult Nails, which will hopefully mean more fun polishes in the future. So I need to make it a good one. Once I have the details sorted out, I will let you all know. So if you want to get a head start check out all those pages! :)
