Nail of the Day: OPI I Eat Maine-ly Lobster

Today's NOTD is from the new OPI Touring America collection. I Eat Maine-ly Lobster (LOVE the name) is a coral toned pink with very subtle gold shimmer in it. You may be asking, "Where is the gold shimmer? I don't see it." Yes, it is THAT subtle. You will only notice the shimmer in direct sunlight.

natural light, 2 coats

Honestly, I don't love this color as much as I thought I would. The application just seemed challenging for me (a little thick), and the shimmer was so unnoticeable that it ended up looking like a creme reddish-pink, something I already have a few of in my collection. It's pretty, but I prefer OPI Cajun Shrimp or Ciate The Glossip if I'm going for this kind of shade.

Would you wear it?

  9. really pretty color, but it sucks when a nailpolish doesn't look as good on the nail as in the bottle :/
    sorry if that's a bit random but i didn't know where else to post this, allison: could you please please do a daytime appropriate tutorial with MAC's club eyeshadow? just bought it, but i don't know how to use it aside from smokey eyes...
    also i have an idea for a video, where you do red lips and several options on suitable eye make ups: eyeliner, light smokey eyes, as much as possible (can't think of more, would love to hear what you would wear with it)

    sorry again for the randomness but i really think of you as a person who has an answer to anything :)

    best whishes, susa
