Sephora by OPI: Fiercely Fabulous
I needed something to wear for the 4th of July but didn't want to bother with nail art because it's been so hot and humid and I didn't have the energy. (Seriously. My phone keeps popping up with extreme heat weather warnings, as if I couldn't figure it out for myself!) I decided on Sephora by OPI Fiercely Fabulous because it's such a firecracker red-orange.
This was a crelly, so it needed a third coat for opacity but it's bright enough that you could probably get away with two if you're not as VNL-phobic as I am. I love that it has just a touch of gray in it so that it's more flattering to me than some of my other red-oranges. Another win! Unfortunately, as beautiful as it is, it's also a stainer, although not the nail plate itself so much as the skin surrounding it. So when you remove it take care not to swipe side-to-side and try to slide it straight off the nail and even then, be prepared to spend some time scrubbing your cuticles. A great time to use some cuticle remover!
