OPI Music Hall Curtain Call polka dots

Today I am wearing OPI Music Hall Curtain Call, a fun orange-based red with a medium amount of gold microglitter.  In some lights, it even has a warm copper tone to it.



OPI Music Hall Curtain Call
I used just ONE coat for complete coverage.  Congratulations Music Hall Curtain Call, you are one of the few one-coaters out there!  When I picked up the bottle, I thought it would take at least 3 coats, because it looks pretty thin, so I was very (pleasantly) surprised by how well it applied.  It dried moderately fast - the drying time was nothing to be thrilled about though.

For the dots, I used my new dotting tool (which I am so excited about) and Essie Mint Candy Apple - can you tell I'm in love with this polish?

Today is a wonderful day because I will soon be finished my third semester of graduate school!  I love graduate school - and I'm devastated that I only have one semester remaining (for this Master's at least) - but that sense of accomplishment I get at the end of each semester is really, really rewarding.  And after the last few months of continual research and writing, it's nice to know I have a break - starting now!  I hope everyone else is having just as wonderful of a Thursday as I am :)

Love it! And it's great to find colors that are one coaters, they're just awesome for konading!

Thanks gildedangel!! I'm such a polka dot addict :)

and thank you too, Tuli! I think it's a pretty unique color, and one I had actually never heard of (in fact, when I pulled it out of my collection, I didn't even recognize it - how bad is that??)
Enjoy the family dinner - that sounds like a lot of fun!!

Musicalhouses - I totally agree! What a great idea - I'll have to try this one for a Konad design!

Cute mani! I love the color, it's what I hoped my new Sinful would be. Oh well.
This looks fantabulous on you and the polka dots are super sweet.

Thanks Mighty Lampchop!! too bad you're newest polish wasn't all you expected :( it is so disappointing when that happens. I was actually expecting this one to be wayy redder than it is - I was going for a Christmas mani, not a Halloween-y one, lol. But it's still fun.
