31 Days of Christmas Challenge - Christmas Day mani

OPI – Smitten With Mittens

Hi Goddesses

I love my festive reds J  red is one of my favourite polish colours, and there’s probably no other brand with more reds than OPI.   Whilst a LOT of those reds are very samey, some of them (that’s you SWM) are very VERY special.

Smitten With Mittens has it all – cute name, depth of colour, plus that little bit extra.  It’s a deep red (it has more meat to it than my photos are showing) with amazing gold flecked shimmer.  Texturally, it’s quite similar to Meep Meep Meep from this year’s Muppets Collection.

This red is soooo vibrant, sooooo rich, sooooo intense.  There is nothing wishy washy about it.  It’s also a perfect red – no orange, blue or brown tones.  It’s just red, but a delicious red at that.  It’s a little bit darker than a basic red, but not even halfway towards ruby.

It is absolutely the flecking in this that makes it so delicious.  In bright lights, she really shows off for the camera, but in more subtle lighting hides her secret well.

I just can’t get enough of her – love love LOVE !!!

I hope Christmas has been ultra good for you this year and that you are currently either in a food coma or a happiness haze J

oh and final PS - don't you just LOVE it when the camera creates VNL that wasn't there in real life AND makes it look like you live in a mud hut?  Deepest joy.  Deepest.

Enjoy J  xx


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
