NOTD: Nicole by OPI "My Lifesaver"


*Blows dust off of blog*

It feels like it has been forever since I've blogged. I've missed it! But, that said it was a crazy busy week and I really didn't have the time and there is still so much more to do. My mom and I spent the better part of today boxing up clothes and emptying drawers. My nan liked her clothes, three huge closets full, and two jumbo dressers stuffed beyond capacity. How one person could have that much is mind boggling.

Yesterday we were picking up little things around the house and my mom asked me if she should throw out the nail polish. My nan only ever wore Sally Hansen New Lengths in 05. I was always on the look out for it for her. I hadn't cried until we got to the nail polish. Later in the evening I realized I hadn't done my nails in ages (okay, like a week, but it felt like ages.) I have a backlog of polishes to swatch/ wear so I went with a new one (new to me, not new to stores) from the One Less Lonely Girl Collection (yes, the Justin Bieber one) by Nicole by OPI.


I had no intentions of getting anything from this collection, but on one of my trips to Shoppers' I saw it and I had to get it. Last year when the minty greens were new and noteworthy I didn't think I was into them. I don't know why I passed them over, they are so pretty and perfect for spring. This colour is a bit more turquoise-y than your average minty creme and is a really fun happy colour on. I did find it a bit tricky to get a smooth finish with this, but I think it was more the brush than the polish. The brush is much the same as the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure polishes have, which is new for Nicole. I'm not sure if I'm into it or not...
Overall a cute colour for spring and a nice little pick me up. I chipped the hell out of it today packing boxes, so I'll most likely be taking it off tonight. Up next in my "to try" pile are Essie Nice is Nice, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow or a collection-mate to Lifesaver, Baby (a baby blue, go figure) Which would you go for next?
