Ever have those mornings when people say "Good Morning" and all you can think is "what's good about it?" ... that might have been the attitude that I woke up with this morning. I'm not much of a morning person! (Maybe I should set up automatic posting, but that kind of feels like cheating to me, especially since I'm not away on vacation or something like that.)
I went to my shelf where I display all of my OPI's and grabbed this beautiful polish and was very pleased with her. (Yes, I personify my polishes -- who doesn't?) I had some trouble photographing the beautiful blue shimmer, yet again. If you follow my blog daily, you will remember that I had the same issue with my "I Always Get My Man-darin" photo's. *sigh*
Over-Exposed In South Beach, 2 coats - No topcoat
I think this photo shows the blue shimmer the best.
Crappy cloudy picture, still no visible shimmer.
Well folks, I tried to capture the shimmer but after 20-odd photo's I gave up. It just wasn't happening. Looking back now, I really should have applied a third coat of polish, I could see some areas that were a little thinner than others but overall I'm pleased with how this turned out.
Over-Exposed In South Beach is a beautiful shimmery fuchsia/purple. I'm sure you have seen this before, and if you don't own it already - well, you should! I feel like this is a very appropriate polish choice for even the more reserved polish wearers. It's vivid without being "obnoxious" (personally, I love "obnoxious" polish) and has some brightness without going overboard.
The name of the polish makes me cringe. It makes me think of a really bad sun burn, so I feel as though this polish should lean a bit more red than blue, but hey - I'm not their creative director. (I WISH!)
