China Glaze For Audrey

So, this color is obviously nothing new (I'm pretty sure, like, everybody owns this color!) but I wore it recently, so I might as well post it, right?
This is China Glaze For Audrey..I used 2 coats, with base and Seche Vite. Great formula, super pretty. I love turquoises! There's not much to say about this one..I don't have many China Glazes but I do love them. I'm always impressed with their color range and their great polishes. Love!

Recklessly, Headlessly -- Franken

This is one of my older frankens that was on my untrieds list: Recklessly, Headlessly. The name comes  from a lyric from Robyn's song "Hang With Me": "Just don't fall recklessly, headlessly in love with me.." Good song, I highly suggest it :)
Anyways, this color is hard to classify exactly..I'm still not sure if it's pink or light purple? It looks more pink in these pictures, but truthfully, in real life it's a total combination of pink and purple. I'd say it's pretty unique, but for some reason I'm not completely in love with it. Hmm.
I used 3 coats, with base and a coat of Seche Vite. I really like the shimmer in this one, and I don't think it shows in the pics but there's also some larger glitter randomly through it. It turned out super shiny with SV over it. I like how it looks like a soft, girly color.
All in all, not my very favorite franken but I do like it! I always find myself avoiding pinks and reds when I'm choosing a polish, but once I put them on my nails I usually fall for them. It's so weird! Anyways..

Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies

If you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it! Haha..I love how Deborah names her polishes after songs. So anyways!
This is Single Ladies. It's a vampy, wine-colored, jelly. I used 3 coats (with base and and 1 coat of Seche Vite, of course), because 2 coats looked too streaky. It ended up looking super dark, almost black, but since I used flash for these pics, it looks way more red in the pictures than it did in real life. (Again, sorry for bad pics..not my ideal camera!)
I didn't think I'd like this much, it being a red..but really, I loved how vampy this was! The best way I can describe it, I think, is that I felt really classy wearing this. It's such a classic color, but not boring. Love it!

OPI Love Is a Racket

First off..can I get an AMEN to the name of this polish?! "Love is a Racket" could pretty much be my motto lately! Haha..
Anyways, this polish is, in one word, stunning. Absolutely gorgeous. I used base, 2 coats, and one coat of Seche's one of those pretty shimmers that has that juicy, hint of VNL look. I adore polishes like this.
The color of this is not quite pink, not quite red..I'd consider it fuchsia. The little flaky shimmer bits are to die for. They really liven the color up, and unfortunately, these pictures don't quite show the complexity of this shade!
This color is truly the name..OPI and Serena did a great job on this! I got this in the Serena Williams duo that also comes with Pros & Bronze, and just from looking at the bottle, I have a feeling that one might be even better than this..I'll just have to try it out and see!
