Manicure Monday: Live.Love.Carnaval

May 05, 2014

Mmmmmmonday! Hope everyone has been well since I left! I'm back from Mexico fully recharged and ready to take my final semester of my degree head-on. I will admit that I've got some post-vacation blues and wish I was still lying under the sun on the beach... But today is Cinco de Mayo and I'll be having a little fiesta of my own today with some fresh salsa, guacamole and tacos! Keeping the Mexican spirit alive!

While I was on vacation I brought a bright coral polish to wear. Live.Love.Carnaval is one of the shades from OPI's Brazil collection for Spring/Summer 2014, and I would argue that it's my favourite from the collection. It's a magenta leaning coral that is fun, flirty and just screams summer to me. The pictures don't show just how pretty it is, so you'll have to take my word for it! The formula is a bit streaky with the first coat, but a second one levels it out to give a smooth, shiny finish. I was able to run around, play in the sand and swim in the ocean for up to five days with a chip free manicure. And that to me is pretty impressive. So if you're in the market for a new coral polish, snatch this one up before it's gone!
