OPI My Vampire is Buff

Today's NOTD is My Vampire is Buff from OPI's Spring 2013 Euro Centrale collection.  This is the only one I purchased from this collection (gasp).  I was pretty disappointed in this collection, especially in comparison to last years Holland collection.  Nearly all of the polishes seem dupe-able . 

I am however in love with this one because I love opaque off white polishes and all the other off white polishes in my stash lean a little pink and I can't think of a dupe.  I'll probably be wearing this on my toes all summer.

Now since this is a white based polish, application was not the greatest and was a little on the thin side.  It kept pooling in my cuticles, but it was nothing a little clean up wouldn't fix.  It was also a bit streaky on initial application.

This is 3 coats.

Nubar Greener

I was searching through my stash for a polish to put on (like I do almost every night) and saw Nubar Greener, a fabulous blackened green shimmer.  It's from their epic (well at least to me it was) collection Going Green 2009.  The whole collection consisted of greens including a holo and a duochrome.  I was so excited I drove to their warehouse to get the collection.  If only Nubar would come out with some more duochromes . . .

This is 3 coats.

Nina Pro Punki Pink with Lynnderella Connect the Dots

Just a quick post.  I while back I saw a blog post (can't remember who's!) with a mani of Connect the Dots over a neon and I was in love.  I already had Connect the Dots and layered it over gray, but this was so fun! I'm in love with it.

This is 3 coats of Punki Pink and 1 coat of Connect the Dots.

Essie Bobbing for Baubles

Can you tell I buy a lot of blue polish?  I think this is the color I have to most of in my stash followed closely by green.

Bobbing for Baubles is from Essie's Winter 2011 Cocktail Bling collection.  It's a faded dark greyish blue.  It's dark, but not so dark that it looks black.

Application on this was smooth and perfect, so no complaints there.  It was almost a one coater, but a few nails had a bald spots on the first coat.

This is 2 coats.
