Quickie Post - My First OPI

   (Ok, I know, everyone else just says quick post instead of quickie, but, admit it, it caught your attention. Ha! And it sounds cuter. Repeat after me: quickie, quickie, quickie)

   Anyway, so this is just a quickie post to tell you about my FIRST OPI EVER! Make that first two.

It's like giving birth to fraternal twins

    OPI Grape Set Match was on sale over at Digital Traincase. It went from 800php to 600php. Yeah, I know, right? Being a tennis fan it would be unforgivable if I didn't get my hands on at least one of Serena Williams' Glam Slam line, especially with that fantastic discount.

   Last night I passed by HBC and as always, I ignored everything else on their shelves and zeroed in on the nail polish.

   I finally kept my promise to buy pink polish. I bought these two:

L-R: Red Gleam, Tea Rose
   That's right. 37php. THIRTY-SEVEN freakin PESOS.

   I've never tried this brand before, but it looks promising. I just have a little issue with the name. Red Gleam looks pink to me, not red at all.

   I know it's minor, but it bothers me. First, the eggplant nails (see previous post. Btw, I asked my friends, guy friends included, what color I was wearing and the results were: Brown -2; Red-2; Eggplant-2. The name is Sexy Plum though, so maybe it is supposed to be eggplantish.), now Red Gleam that's not red. Looks like somebody slept through Art class in Kindergarten.

pictured: definitely not me. This girl looks too... awake.

   But anyway, yay for this week's haul!


  1. These look so pretty! Can't wait to see swatches! ♥

  2. OOh so pretty! I'm with Brittany Elaine, cannot wait to see swatches. :-)

  3. I'm a big tennis fan too! I loved the Rally Pretty Pink color from the last Serena release. Can't wait to see these ones in action! :)
