OPI - "Color to Diner For"

Woo hoo! It's the weekend! It's about 11:00 right now on Friday night, and I can't even think about getting to bed! My mom and I are driving to Chicago tomorrow morning to go see a Cubs/Cardinals game at Wrigley Field! I've never seen the Cardinals play in an opposing team's stadium, and to see them play the Cubs makes it so much more exciting! A vendor of ours that I work closely with has gotten a suite at Wrigley for us, so it'll be an awesome experience! I'll be sure to post pics once we're back!


Since I'll be sporting my Cardinal red tomorrow, I had to decide what red I wanted to wear for the big day. Lucky for me, I just received "Color to Diner For" from the newTouring America Collection by OPI! I won the ENTIRE 12-bottle set in my friend Tara's blog giveaway. If you haven't checked out her blog, "For Your Nails Only" before, you can do so by clicking here. Thank you so much, Tara! I can't wait to try out all of these fantastic colors!


I've heard some really great reviews about this collection: from the trendy polish colors to the amazingly perfect formula. I have to agree, the colors are incredible and are right up my alley. I know it's still summer, but these little puppies will be worn before fall!


I was pretty pleased with the formula of "Color to Diner For". It was quite thin at first, but built up beautifully. Usually, I don't care for the look of 3 coats of polish, but I used 3 here, and thought it looked perfect. 


I'm not really a red shimmer fan, but this polish was a nice surprise. It's almost a blood red with golden shimmer. Very sexy! 


Application:

Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?! Whatever you end up doing, have fun! 


Thanks for stopping by! :-)


Love,

  3. Still not sure about some of the shades in the Touring America collection. Your swatches here of this one have put it back on my need list.

  4. Thanks, ladies (and George!). I have to admit, I like most reds, but I'm not in love with most reds (does that even make sense?!). This was a great shade, though. I loved the subtle shimmer it had to it. Not too much, but just enough. I highly recommend picking this one up!
