Oldie But Goodie

This mani was from a long time ago, and I just stumbled across the picture. I actually meant to post it right away because I really liked it, but this just proves how busy my new University life is.

I am definitely liking the colour choice for fall (yeah it is more like winter now, but it was from way back). I used a new to me polish by OPI, Mauving to Manitoba. This polish was from the Canadian Collection, which I feel (sort of) close to. Although I do not live in Manitoba, the colour and the fact that it had something to do with Canada made me buy it a few weeks back. I have used it a couple times since, and always hover over it when choosing my next polish colour, so it stood the test of repetition.

The colour is different, its a pinky purple shimmer metallic shade and the formula is really good. It was pretty much opaque but my application sucks so I had to use 2 coats to even it out. In different lights it looks much lighter or darker, clearly this is the dark version (anyone else notice how dingy the lights in a dorm room can be? Clearly polish swatching is not a normal University dorm activity…). The lighter it gets the more pink it seems, and the darker the light it turns more to a purple maroon colour. At least in my eyes.

I don’t have any other colour like it, so I’m happy I bought it then. For this mani I used Wet N Wild Black Creme to stamp with on Konad plate m69. Originally I was drawn to this plate for the flower design, but have come to notice I use this one much more often.


Anyways, I really like the colour and the stamping pattern, so I ended up happy with the combo.

What do you guys think?
