Moment of Weakness - $OPI Traffic-Stopper Copper & Only Gold For Me


Recently I was in Sephora picking up some necessities (*cough*) during the 15% off sale they had on. Just minding my own business, buying my staples, and wearing my conservative Essie Jazz mani (probably my fav nude...check out my post here) - a normal, responsible, short-skirt-long-jacket kinda day. And then I paused...at the $OPI display...

You know I have a weakness for golds, so I casually layered the tester of Only Gold For Me over my Jazz mani. I figured "I'm taking this off tonight anyways!". Then I spotted Traffic-Stopper Copper. Hmm...

So I added that too...


And guess what? I love it, and walked out with both of them! I even ended up wearing this mani for a couple days as well.

I don't know what it is exactly, but the combination of the teeny glitter with the larger hexagonal glitter is really lovely. I also love how sparse the polishes are - what you see in the picture is a couple coats, but with one coat I think you can really achieve something nicely subtle and for me, wearable. For those glitter fanatics out there, I really recommend picking up Traffic-Stopper Copper - I think that the combination of the glitter sizes in the copper colour is quite unique and special and goes really well with rose gold if you're into that. (Which I am - you'll be seeing my new rose gold watch in an upcoming post!)

Now I'm just trying to get my hands on Flurry Up - the silver counterpart to these polishes! I can't find it anywhere - anyone have any clues for me?

I'm not really a sparse glitter person, but never say never, especially about polish! This looks lovely on you!

That's a beautiful combo! I must try that soon. Someone will surely send you Flurry Up since you've put it out there into the universe. It will find it's way to you. :)

I have flurry up and only gold for me. I really like them! My local Sephora carries it (London, ON, Canada). If your local store can't transfer it over let me know... Maybe I can send it your way from my store. :)

I have Only Gold For Me and looooovveee it. I want the copper version, but not really the silver. The large glitter is so cool though
