O.P.I. Amazon...Amazoff

Hey everyone! Happy St. Patrick's Day! I don't have a great nail art related post, but I do have an awesome green polish!

If you haven't seen it yet, O.P.I.'s Brazil collection is pretty damn amazing, and for once I actually want every polish in it. I am not usually a huge O.P.I. fan (but they make a killer cream), but this one really is calling my name! I have several of them picked out for the upcoming seasonal Color Trend series and I had to grab a few more for my personal stash as well! The first one I got was Amazon...Amazoff.

Please Note: Products shown were purchased by me for my personal use.

O.P.I. - Amazon...Amazoff

Amazon...Amazoff is a rich deep green-leaning teal cream with the tiniest bit of silvery shimmer. In all honesty, I have yet to see the shimmer in my bottle, except from the pics when I swatched it. But the color is so vibrant, that I really don't care! This is 2 coats, almost a one coater, but I did have a couple of patchy spots. Super smooth formula and application - one that I am noticing is pretty consistent with O.P.I. and I love it. As with any color like this, it is a stainer. I doubled up on my base coat, and still had some issues!

Pretty appropriate for today, if you opt for being less inconspicuous about adding green to your wardrobe. Aside from that, I love the color any time, and cannot wait to try it out for some nail art. This, along with the rest of the Brazil collection are pretty much a perfect palette for spring.summer nail art!

This also happens to be my first post with my new camera! It is a Nikon D3200 and I am using the 18-35mm lens that came with it. I also have a neutral density filter on the lens to cut down on some of the glare. I love the way the pics came out, but it took a loooong time to find a good combo of camera/light/photoshop settings! I can't really get good macros at this point, but I am hoping to remedy that soon with some close up lenses (a macro lens is way too expensive!) While I like the overall result, I will be tweaking things over the next few weeks to find my best pics. I love the clarity, but that glare is way too much! So I hope you all can forgive a bit of inconsistent photography for a while! But hopefully, in the end, I will be bringing amazing nail art and swatch pics to the ol' blog!

Hope you all have a great St. Pat's and if you are of legal drinking age, go order yourself an Irish Carbomb - it is one of my fav bar drinks ever!
