Houston We Have a Purple (Post 22?)

OMG! I have been MIA for a week! Sososossoooo sorry. But fear not- halloween mani's are on their way! This next polish, like the last few are from the Texas collection and it's a sorbet. Houston We Have a Purple is the whole reason I got into sorbets, I just wanted this color so bad. Coincidentally, I painted my nails this legit 5 minutes ago. Then I logged on and saw my next post was this! It needs three coats and quite a bit of drying time- it's a sorbet. But it is such a beautiful color!!

So an okay swatch and a beautiful plummy red. Sorry this post is short on words but as I said before- Halloween mani's on their way!!!

Guy Meets Galveston and Big Hair Big Nails (post 21)

Sorry, sorry, sorry- I've been gone a while now!! This post is something I wish I wasn't posting. I purchased Guy Meets Galveston and Big Hair Big Nails from the OPI Texas collection for summer. And they are so so so similar. What a waste of 8 bucks! Now don't get me wrong- they are not dupes- but I definitely did not need BOTH! They're both coral sorbet jellies. I can barely tell the difference between the two!!! I like Guy Meets Galveston just a little bit better. Because it's just a little bit different.

I'm only posting one bottle shot because they came out identical.  The first one is Guy Meets Galveston- I don't know why I didn't take a better pic. Oh well- the second is Big Hair Big Nails and the thumb is reflecting really weird but at least it's a great picture compared to the other. Honestly this is such a bad post because of that pic- I'll definitely do a reswatch when I next wear it.

Do You Think I'm Tex-y? (Post 20)

Let me just start by saying- this is my new favorite pedicure color. Ever. This is OPI's new sorbet finish- basically a jelly. This is a pretty berry color and is perfect for fall. It needs 3 or 4 coats for full opacity but is overall, a great polish.

This is the first ehh swatch in a while- I apologize. Sorry for the short post but I have a heap of homework waiting for me. Email me at

What's With the Cattitude? Swatch (Post 19)

Hey- sorry again for the lack of consistent posting! I'm posting two today me thinks.... oh well. This is another color from the Shrek collection, however it is a recent purchase. This is the sky blue creme and let me just say- this is perfect- it's such a standard color yet so rarely produced and it was just a success all around- <3. My bottle pic is not great but the swatches are pretty good. This was opaque in two or three coats- standard for a pastel/pale color. It looks good, wears well and has such a cute name!

Love, love, love! The swatch is pretty good- although not my best! I love this so much but I've pretty much said all I have to say about it- love!!! As always, feel free to email me at !

In My Back Pocket and Zom-body to Love

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in awhile. To make up for it, I'm giving you two, In My Back Pocket and Zom-Body to love. These two have nothing in common but to me, they are both Halloween colors so I just thought- go for it.

In My Back Pocket is such a pretty color. It's hard to find a good orange and at least to me, this is a great one. It's super opaque and drys nicely. It's consticency is pretty nice as is wear time. This color in a nutshell is basically what kraft mac and cheese (ew gross comparison) looks like when its saturated.

Sorry it's not the best picture- my original copy got deleted of my computer so I had to quickly take another like 5 seconds ago. I don't know how the following swatch is but I think it's one of the ehh ones.

Yay! It's pretty good! But the picture itself isn't :( Oh well! This reallly portrays the color well and it's a perfect Halloween Orange.

Okay Zom-Body to Love. This is OPI's glow in the dark polish. It takes four or five coats because it's sheer and the first one is barely anything. It's a slowish drier but other than that- AMAZING! The color is sosososo pretty it's this amazing saturated green with hints and undertones of blue and man, this thing glows like crazy!!!!

The swatch is a little ehh and the color is showing up really like a dupe for Mermaid's Tears. Which it's not. So fun Halloween colors right? Anways, feel free to email me at

Love is a Racket (Post 17)

Okay so this is my current, all time favorite polish. Who knows how long it will last but for now, it's my faveee! I don't really have much to say other than it's easily a one coater and is beautful, glass flecked and berry!

Pretty accurate photograph. The swatches below are not my best- I tried to do a reswatch which just delayed the post sooooo much. Maybe later on in the year I'll get a good one to you!

Again- sorry fot the photo quality and delay! I got 5 more polishes so I will still have consistent posting for you guys through the net 2 or 3 weeks. As always, feel free to email me at

Pros and Bronze Swatch (Post 16)

Ooooh how I love this color! I'll have Love is a Racket up soon! This is Pros and Bronze from the recent Serena Williams duo pack. (Speaking of duo packs- I went 2 Ulta 2day 2 buy my number one best friend nail polish and promised I wouldn't buy anything because I just bought 5 nail polishes online on Sunday but then I saw the OPI duo pack with the Zom-body to love glow in the dark polish and black shatter. OOPS!) The Serena duo pack is 14.95 and is avaliable at most Ulta's.
This is a fine glitter with pink, red, orange and of course, bronze glitter. It has this amazing duochrome effect even though if you ask me, its not a duochrome at all. It's sososo beautiful and I have to get my hands on red shatter just for this polish. My swatches (I am posting two for this one, don't know why) are amazing and true to my nail application skills here and are pulling super orange. It's ridiculous how orange. But its still pretty, even if it's not true to color.

This polish is the whole reason I purchased the duo pack. It's gorgeous and almost exactly what I had been looking for (an orange-pink duochrome of awesomeness) but at the end of the day I love Love is A Racket so much more. As tennis is my main sport, I also love the whole tennis vibe. Anyways back to Love is A Racket, a very little known fact is that my favorite nail polish of the history of nail polishness until I purchased Love is A Racket was NYC Love Me Red Creme. Yup. I know. It's not OPI. Who are you and what have you done to Sierra? Well it's true, and I spent half my life looking for a beautiful OPI dupe. Then I buy this pack because I'm hellbent on getting the orange-fuschia duo-chrome and BAM! Love is A Racket becomes my favorite nail polish. It's similar all right but it no ways a dupe. It's redder, sparklier, glass flecked and has wayyyyyy less duochrome. But- I love it. So even though that story should have been included with Love is A Racket, it's not. Regardless, I love this nail polish so much! (btw it looks AWFUL layered over In My Back Pocket (an upcoming swatch) so never ever ever layer it. UGLY!) Love all of you and as always email me at and of course my commenting is still broken so keep the love coming because even if I can't comment you, I still read and love you all!
xoxo Sierra
