OPI Catch Me In Your Net

I didn't intend to buy this color.

As a matter of fact, I almost bought a very similar color, Zoya's Charla, during the recent (and AWESOME) Zoya exchange, but made the mistake of looking through all of my polishes a few minutes before placing my order and was astounded by the amount of turquoises and blues that I own compared to other polishes. In a moment of ridiculousness I left Charla out and I have regretted it ever since. I mean, come on! What was I thinking? Gah!

Long story short, I recently saw Piff's fab swatch of Charla and started dreaming of turquoisey-foily goodness once again. Well, tonite I was wandering through my favorite grocery store ever (I know that sounds odd, but they have sushi AND good cheese AND a great polish selection) and stumbled upon this sparkly gal. I don't know if it was the temporary high from having fresh mozzarella in my cart or what, but the next thing I know it just JUMPED into my cart.

I've been warned of its sheer tendency, so here it is layered over Sally Hansen's Pacific Blue, and what can I say - it is breathtaking. It's not like your normal mermaid-y type turquoise that every brand and their mother seem to be putting out as their "edgy" hue lately, it's different because of the foil-like finish and shimmer than can shine anywhere from navy to cyan to gold. I can't even begin to tell you the compliments of I have gotten from this color, most of them beginning with "oooooohhhhh..."

Anyway, double thumbs up for this bad boy and for Charla as well.

And following the trend of butterflies and flowers as this is from OPI's Summer 2010 Collection, here's a little shot from my mother-in-law's garden.

Happy day, all!

CMIYN is my current favorite. I love everything about it, except taking it off (it's glittery; those suck to remove). I love how it looks layered!

Sara said...

I don't have this one, but I do have Charla and it is probably my favorite color from any summer collection. It's just gorgeous!

I just love this's on my toes right now...and it has been for a while! I keep redoing my nails and just putting CMIYN on them again and again!

@hallmarkjunkie - you are welcome to borrow it! It's incredible! : )

@Karla - I know how you feel; have you ever tried the aluminum foil method for taking off a glitter? It's such a life saver!

@Sara - Agreed - it is simply amazing!

@Aurora's Nails - It is DEFINITELY going on my toes next!

That sneaky OPI... It did the same thing to me! Hehe. And wow your garden pic is gorgeous!

Sarah said...

I got this one recently and I'm in love with it too! It's so gorgeous!

Zara said...

I was holding out...but yeah, I want this now. Especially because I have SH Pacific Blue to layer it over. :)

And those sneaky polishes - I always get a few jumping into my hands! :)

That is really lovely. I can see your hands cutting through the water with this manicure. Your tail is swishing from side to side.

Karla said...

Wha-wha-what?!? An aluminum foil method for removing glitter? Oh do tell! I've never heard of that! I hope I'm not the last one to hear about this trick... ;)

I am so happy that so many of you love this color as well, and thanks for the kudos about the flower pic!

Yes, the foil method is fab! It sounds like overkill, but to each nail apply a cotton ball with polish remover and wrap it in a little piece of aluminum foil to keep the pressure on the nail and to keep the polish from evaporating; the first hand is easy, but the second hand is tricky, so be warned. After your done, wait at least five minutes and pull the foil wrapping off of your finger with the cotton and VOILA! Done!

Please let me know if it works as well for you as for me!
