OPI Black cherry chutney swatch- NOTD and an accident:(
Hey, dear readers:)
A quick post today. I'm sure you know this beauty I'm showing you today. It's OPI's Black cherry chutney, gorgeous dark shimmery reddish purple which looks almost black indoors, but it gets livelier when being in the sun or under light. It's completely opaque in 2 coats and there's also 1 coat of top coat in the pictures. All the pictures were taken in my lightbox, with artificial light and flash.The shimmer is really difficult to capture with camera, but as I did this manicure a few days before and wore it till yesterday, I wasn't able to do any pictures in the sun, which would have done this polish justice. Please excuse the tipwear:)
While shopping on Friday, I hit with my finger into a shelf, silly me :S and broken my index finger so badly I did not know what to do, so I ran to a cosmetics store and bought Essence silky patches and their glue, cut my nails down and stick the patch to my broken nail. Before that I made a gradient manicure which I'm going to show you tomorrow:) But from this week on, you'll see a bit shorter nails than usual, well it was only a matter of time before I would cut them down, they were really getting to bother me while practising karate too.
So what do you think of the colour? What do you usually do when you break a nail? Any advice?
Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished start of the week:*
