UMD Red Week!! OPI Pretty & Privileged

In celebration of my upcoming graduation from the University of Maryland, I'm rocking UMD red nails all week long.  Yesterday I had the gorgeous (and awesomely named) I Don't Do Dishes and today I have a polish with a name along the same lines...


OPI Pretty & Privileged
I was LOVING I Don't Do Dishes yesterday, but I am absolutely smitten with Pretty & Privileged.  This color is HOT!  It is a brighter blue-toned red with LOADS of red and pink microshimmer, which gives it a hot, dark pink/red look.  It is a little brush strokey and my bottle was pretty thick.  It covered with one amazing coat (yes!) and seriously makes my heart skip a beat.  I hope I love my Friday polish choice as much as this one :)
Again, MD is in some kind of monsoon, so no sunlight to photograph this gorgeous red for you.  It is more magenta than it looks in these photos.  Same shimmer and all, just imagine a little more pink in there.  I'll try to take another picture tomorrow morning before I do my next red if the sun is out.


Aside from being day two of UMD Red Week, today is also the last day of the college class I am teaching.  Cue sad music.  I'm amazed by how quickly it went by and devastated that it is over.  It was such an incredible experience and I am really going to miss working with this great group.  We're having a pizza party today to celebrate the end of the semester.  I can't wait to start teaching a new class; I have learned so much this past semester :)

Have a great Tuesday!!

I'm loving the red week! This red is gorgeous, reminds me of OPI's Friar, Friar, Pants on Fire! Might have to wear that one pretty soon again. :)

I totally think you should wear this one friday! It's a great color and the name gives a nod to what a huge privilege it is to have the opportunity to pursue graduate study. Although I am sure I will change my mind again with whatever you post tomorrow. : )

I think I'm going to do a red shimmer on my toes.

Liz, I hadn't even considered that!!! what a cute idea :) Maybe I'll use this as my pedi polish? Looking forward to seeing the red shimmer you use. How are you doing your fingernails?
