OPI Merry Midnight

(picture heavy, kind of)

I know I said I would show you Teenage Dream, but the photos I took were horrible and I didn't want to post them :/  At least you saw it layered on white, here, first, right? Right...? If and when I can, I'll try it again. But I doubt that'll be anytime soon because... Well, you'll find out soon.

Also, I went to the mall and found out that the Katy Perry collection has been released here! I almost died when I saw the little nail thingy with the swatches. I. Must. Have. Not Like The Movies. It is INSANE. I want it more than I want Black Shatter. You know, since China Glaze will be releasing 6 crackle polishes, I assume the black one will be similar to OPI's.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I wanted to post on Christmas but my house is filled to the brim now (I can't even sleep in my own room because my grandmother is sleeping there) and I can almost never get a moment of privacy, since I have to edit and upload pictures on the non-transportable desktop computer.

There was a lot of food involved in my Christmas. Turkey, lamb, pork, mashed potatoes, potato au gratin, coleslaw with apples, salad, turkey stuffing wrapped in prosciutto ham or bacon, and brussel sprouts. All home cooked by my mom/grandma/aunt (except for the pork).

For my presents and as a reward for doing well in my exams, I got a Pandora bracelet (why don't they make a nail polish charm?), some money, and some nail polish. Mmmm.. Money. My dad borrowed some money from me today. It was weird because I usually take money from him (without having to return it ;) ).

I wanted to paint my nails with some China Glaze but I couldn't because.. well you'll find that out later too. So I decided to go with something that I bought months ago but never wanted to use because it was too precious.

OPI does cremes well. And shimmers well. And glitters. And mattes/suedes. Foils, holos, jellies. But how often does OPI do flakies?! The moment I saw Merry Midnight, I was like 'holy crap!'. It is stunning. I think it was released last year, so you've probably seen it a bajillion times, but.. it's just so pretty.

I did 3 coats with top coat. It's a dark purple (jelly?) base with silver and blue microglitter, and flakies. If I'm not mistaken, it's the same type of flakies as you would find in Nubar 2010.

What's not to love about this one? I think I would kick myself upside down and inside out if I'd skipped this. Somebody tell OPI to make more flakies. There aren't enough in the world.

I hope you had a very merry Christmas! (:
