Erin's Latest Haul and OPI Danke-Shiny Red

Hi!  If you follow us on Facebook then you know that last night Robin, Anna, Anna's mom (my aunt/Robin's first cousin) and I went to our favorite nail polish supply store to do some major damage. Anna and I usually go every couple months, enough that they know us and know we are there to get serious!  They have around 10 different brands of polish and every nail tool imaginable.  It's heaven on earth.

Shockingly, I was the most reserved hauler last night.  Check it out!

Essie (left to right):  Cocktail Bling, Stylenomics, Smokin' Hot, Demure Vixen, To Buy Or Not To Buy
A note about Demure Vixen, this has been on my wishlist for months and every time I see it, I put it back.  And then I see this pin and I get pissed that I didn't buy it.  So, even though I don't love it in the bottle, it better look like that on me!

China Glaze (left to right):  Stellar, Recycle, Emerald Fitzgerald

China Glaze (left to right, my picks from the Safari Collection):  Manhunt, Jungle Queen

OPI (left to right, my picks from the Germany Collection):  Danke-Shiny Red, Every Month is Oktoberfest, Suzi and the Seven Dusseldorfs.  I also purchased Germanicure by OPI a couple weeks ago and I'm in love with it.

OPI (left to right):  Yoga-ta Get This Blue, Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees, Thanks a Windmillion

Famous:  Opal Gold and...I can't remember the name!  I'll edit this later.

So after going out to dinner and the 45 minute drive home, I still needed to paint my nails at 11:30 last night.  I was wearing a super chipped mani of Zoya Monica and it needed to come off.  OPI Danke-Shiny Red was calling my name.  My BFF called me last week and asked for my expert opinion on what polish to wear to a wedding.  She was wearing a navy lace dress with a gold zipper and gold heels.  My first thought was Danke-Shiny Red.  She sent me a pic of her nails and her outfit and it was absolutely perfect.  I knew I needed to own this polish.  A glowing, lit from within red with a perfect formula and OPI's amazing Pro-wide brush?  Done.

Do you pick your nail polish to coordinate with your outfit?  I don't like to match but I like them to go together.  Are there any polishes from my haul that you would like to see swatched?  Let me know.  It will make deciding what to wear next easier!


  1. Nice haul! I am loving the new Essie collection! :)

    1. Me too! I'm going to compare Stylenomics with Zoya Noot. I'm pretty sure they are not dupes but I just want to check.

  2. Great haul! Danke Shiny Red looks amazing on you, I'm currently wearing it as my pedicure =)

    1. Thanks! I have Suzi and the 7 Dusseldorfs as my pedi.

  3. Great haul and I love Danke Shiny Red so gorgeous.

  4. Essie Smokin Hot is gorgeous! It was my first Essie ever, and I absoutely love it to bits :)
