[OPI] Envy the Adventure

My first emerald green with crème finish, Envy the Adventure. It’s from the Nutcracker and the Four Realms collection, and I also realised that it’s been ages since my last OPI nail colour.

I’m basically ‘back to business’, i.e. my flu has gone. Finally! Today I went swimming again, which I wasn’t able to do for almost two weeks. It’s still another ten days until I will be at the house again (my mother’s house, now mine), visiting my parents at the graveyard and so on …

[OPI] Siberian Nights

I caught a cold when I was on my mother’s balcony at the nursing home, trying to phone her health insurance. It’s not that bad – I had a sore throat yesterday and still feel poorly -, but I won’t be going swimming tomorrow and hope I’ll be able to towards the end of the week. Maybe I’ll find the time to go through my stash to see which colours I haven’t shown yet.

To start with, here is Siberian Nights, an eggplant beauty which had been released eleven years ago! Can’t believe that I haven’t posted it before.

So here it is, two coats shown below. The colour is a deep, dark eggplant (or muted purple).

Reloaded: The Spy Who Loved Me

Fantasy Filmfest starts next Thursday, hence I’m sorting out nail colours for my personal event of the year. I’m still loving the James Bond collection by OPI, which was released for Christmas 2012. Here are more recent photos of The Spy Who Loved Me (initial posting here).

Sprung (OPI) Again

I am currently wearing Sprung and since it’s been a while since my last OPI post (I haven’t bought nail colour of this brand recently) I thought I could share this with you – although there is a already a blog entry. Nevertheless, I think that with its copper foil finish Sprung is made for this season. Hard to believe that it was actually released for Spring, isn’t it? 🙂

This is two coats.

Altough I am definitely no fan of winter or cold wheather, I am beginning to adapt to it. I still cannot say that I like being outside during rain or snow – but I go swimming regularly (I always loved swimming) and swim long distances, and I guess it helps coping with any season. I don’t feel that uncomfortable during winter anymore. Normally wintertime was equal to permanently suffering from a cold. 😉 But regardless of the wheater, I make my way to the swimming bath and realised that it’s probably only a matter of the right clothes. We’ll see!
