Nicole - Believe It, Do It

What a positive message of self affirmation!  I picked this gorgeous shade up at ULTA with that free coupon in last month's Seventeen.  I debated between this and Ink-A-Dink-A Pink (which I still really want...), but I really like this shade.

Nicole by OPI Believe It, Do It

Sorry for my short middle finger :( While all my other nails are cooperating pretty well, it refuses to grow.  Quite unfortunate.  I haven't been wearing my fake nails because I've been teaching, but I'll probably have them back next week.
Believe It, Do It is a very 'Me' kind of pink.  Blue-based fuchsia with very minimal shimmer and a glowy luster.  I used three coats and you can still kind of see the whites of my nails, but only in sunlight.

I apologize for how messy this mani is.  I painted them while sitting on my bed, lit by the glow of the TV, without my contacts.  I'm kind of impressed they look this decent!

I also wanted to tell you all about my friend Jana's new blog, Jeweled Tips.  When I was still writing for an audience of 20 or so, Jana (a fellow member of the Purse Forum) sent me a message telling me how much she enjoyed my blog.  Her kindness really inspired; she was the first 'stranger' who ever told me they enjoyed my blog, and I really appreciate that she went out of her way to do that.  Jana has been a guest polisher here at Babbling Brooke a few times and she has a polish collection to rival some of the best.  Her blog is fun and new, and I'd love if you took a minute to check it out :)

Have a fantastic Friday!!

I love pinks with that sort of blueish purple flash to them! BTW on opi's facebook they just posted an article about removing nail polish from carpet if you still needed help with that :)

I love bright pinks like that! I just got a similar color (Trinity) from Zoya. I checked out Jeweled Tips - I love "finding" new blogs. Thanks for sharing.

Would you please become a follower of my blog ( I'm starting with it and I'm trying to do my best. Thank you! ^^

Thanks for the shout out Brooke! Blogging is a lot of fun :) That Nicole color looks awesome on you. There have been a few of the Nicole colors I was interested in but I can't get past the bottle shape, haha

Mai said...

Man I keep getting tempted by all the Nicole colors but the bottle is just so ugly looking and uneven looking that I can't bring myself to buy one
