Antipodean Beauties – Summer

Antipodean Beauties Banner

Okay, I know there has been a lack of posts lately but for some reason my social life decided to pick itself up!  Now, since I have been absent, I thought I would do 2 Antipodean Beauties posts in the next couple of days.

This post will be about summer.  If you are in Australia, I hope you survived the really hot heat lately!  (looks like summer decided to come around too!)  Here’s my summer look..

What’s summer without the bronzer?

Decided to put my hair up since it’s too hot to have my hair down and in my face!

Nail of the Day – OPI Your Web or Mine?

Another nail polish from the OPI  The Amazing Spider-man Miniature Collection.   This time, it is a pink  metallic colour called Your Web or Mine?

Application wise is pretty smooth with very little streak marks.  It dries extremely quickly (few minutes) with a thin application.  The 1st layer of this nail polish almost nearly gives the colour in the bottle, although, a 2nd layer gives it a stronger pink colour with more of a metallic sheen.

Picture time!

Conclusion:

This nail polish colour is very pink and makes me feels very Barbie-like.

Nail of the Day – OPI La Paz-itively Hot

Another Monday, another manicure.  It’s time to refresh my nails.  my last nail polish lasted about 2 weeks so now it’s time for a new colour.  For some reason I’m so used to seeing colour on my nails that not wearing any nail polish looks weird.

Today, I bring you OPI La Paz-itively Hot from the OPI Just Beachy Mini Nail Collection.  The colour is definitely a summer colour with it’s rich hot pink, with slightly blue-purple tones.  The polish is quite pigmented and gave a very rich colour.  Application was slightly harder due to its stickiness.  What you get with the 2nd coat is definitely the colour you see in the bottle.

Picture time!

It’s a really pigmented nail polish that gives a nice rich bright pink colour.  I’m loving the rich colour and it definitely gives me a summer vibe!
