Lupita Nyong'o Oscar Dress Inspired Nails

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o is so beyond fabulous, like I wish I could have such style. Just look at her, killing it:

She has made this color EVERYTHING. So I knew I had to put it on my nails lucky for me I had the perfect match in the Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams. And while I love the color of this polish it is kind of difficult to use, I had to use 4 coats to get it completely even, two thin two thick. I used Joelle by Julep as an accent to get the effect of the silver on the bottom of the dress and her headband because omg that headband I want one, and I used to hate headbands.

OPI Muppets World Tour

 I recently purchased Muppets World Tour from OPI the Muppets Most Wanted collection. All I can say is that you should go out and get this polish, it reminds me of lace. The descriptor states: "This white quartz with colorful sparkle is a global sensation" I have to agree, It has small white glitter and even smaller silver, additionally there are light pink, fuchsia, and blue glitter pieces. The application was very simple, I used one coat and got the perfect amount of glitter over my Zoya Rue undie. I didn't have to fish for specific colors they were all on the brush every time!

Butter London Molly Coddled

   I love this polish, they are marketing this as the Pantone Color of the Year Radiant Orchid, or on their site as an opaque lavender orchid cream,  However it is a lot lighter then the color Pantone released. The color looks very different depending on the  lighting, sometimes blue violet and sometimes red.

    The application was really great for a light cream, it was opaque in two coats, though a few of my nails have three on them but that was my bad. I used the Sephora Formula X base and top coat.
