OPI Extra-va-vaganza

Today I wore OPI Extra-va-vaganza from the Burlesque collection. It's mostly orange and silver, but with bits of green, pink, yellow, and blue glitter, too. It's different from the two glitters I've already shown you, Simmer & Shimmer and Glow Up Already!, in that silver is not as prominent as it is in Simmer & Shimmer, or as gold is in Glow Up Already! - and I'm quite a big fan of that. I liked the gold and silver in the other two, but I'm glad that Extra-va-vaganza is mostly orange. It's also different from the other two I've shown already in that it's not quite as opaque in three coats, so I used four. However, I really don't mind using four coats, partly because it dries so quickly (I didn't have to pause at all between coats, because it was already dry) and partly because glitter is such a pain to remove anyway, another coat doesn't really make a difference. Unfortunately, Extra-va-vaganza doesn't suit my skin tone that well, but I'm still in love.

I didn't manage to get to Walmart today to look for the new Sally Hansen collections because I woke up feeling quite ill this morning, and I don't really feel much better yet. I've been kind of up and down for the past couple weeks, so I'm hoping that ends soon. I hate being sick. I hope you're all having a much better day than I!


  1. So pretty and sparkly! I can't wait for mine to arrive. I hope you feel better soon :)

  2. I hope you feel better'd think that OPI would perk you right up, lol. Really, I hope its nothing serious. Being sick always sucks.

  3. Cel- Thank you! I hope I do, too. :)

    Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes- I know; I must be pretty bad if polish doesn't fix me! :) I know it's not anything too serious...I have kidney stones and endocrine issues, and the two have kind of combined to give me a hard time. Thanks for your well wishes!

  4. I love that colour!

  5. Stylishly yours- Thank you!

    Becky- Thanks, me too!

  6. Zara! I love this one! Its amazing! You continue to be soooo great at this. The last photo is my all-time favorite. I love everything that glitters!



  7. Zabrinah- Thank you! Be careful, though, you're inflating my ego. ;P

  8. This is definitely "different." It's cool with the orange-y color, but with silver, and then little other colors!

  9. Aurora's Nails- Yeah, it's very least, I haven't seen anything like it! Thanks for the comment.
