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:*

  1. *gasp*
    I think I'd try a silk wrap for that deep of a break! :o Otherwise I'd file my nails down.

    The colour looks beautiful on you.

  2. there is a tutorial by misschievious on youtube for when she breaks a nail. I thought it look really good she uses a tea bag and stuff, you could look it up and see if that would work for you( you couldnt tell it was even patched when it was all done)

  3. Ouch!! Poor nail!!
    This colour is great, I tried it during rainy days too so I haven't been able to picture it in full sun (I wait for summer to arrive to swatch shimmers)!
    I'm glad Essence made silk patches, a couple of months ago they sold different ones, made of plastic (and useless, IMHO).
    I have a broken index nail (same "level" of yours, so if you cut the nail, it would be really really short) and I patched it...so far it's keeping it together (but I haven't learned how to make it invisible under polish, I filed it but the "step" is visible).
    Long comment, better go to bed now!

  4. Aouch for the nail ! I broke two nails and I shortened all too ... Playing bowling is dangerous lol !
    That polish is very pretty :)

  5. I am so tempted by this colour, I stumbled across it only a few days ago, you posting it now makes me think I need to get this one ;o)

  6. Shame that's terrible. There aren't really those sorts of things where I live so if I break a nail I cut it off and file it. :(

  7. Lovely colour! That nail looks like a very painful nail!

  8. Sorry about the broken nail dear :( This polish looks great on you.

  9. :( for your broken nail !!!! I hope patches will be ok !
    polish is great, very a pity that sun wasn't there !!

  10. This polish is gorgeous !!! LOVE colors like this ! And sorry about your broken nail sweetie :-( Sending you a big kiss :-)))

  11. Aaaaauuuuč! :( Tudi meni se je pred kratkim to zgodilo. Ja, nič, mi ni preostalo, kot da skrajšam vse. Nisem jih skrajšala na isto dolžino kot je bil zlomljen (ker to bi bilo precej boleče), ampak toliko, da so vsaj približno enaki. :D

    Drugače je pa lepa barva! :)

  12. Skulda, I did both:) hope it will grow soon, thank you:*

    paintedbluestars, thanks:* I'll check it out!

    smALtY, thank you, dear:* up till now they work great, hope they last long

    Ayuu, thanks a lot:* I know what you mean by bowling, I broke some nails once too.

    BabyD, you should have;) thanks:*

    Lolitadewdrop, perhaps you could try with a tea bag?

    Spaceinvaders, believe when I say it is:( thanks:*

    AllYouDesire, thank you:*

    Saori, thanks:*

    Tuli, thank you, sweety:*

    Tassa, hvala:* niti ne bi mogla skrajšat nohtka, ker se mi je v živo zacepil:S upam, da bodo te obloge kar držale

  13. Not a break!! I usually patch it until it grows out enough and then I cut them all off. Mine are fairly short for me right now. I can't seem to grow them like I used to without them breaking though. I think I am becoming immune to Biotin.

  14. R3Beauty, I still use Nailtek f.2 and it works for me, haven't tried biotin though

  16. They do not insert secret or additional advertising in our material.
    One of my favorite ones is where the thanksgiving turkey is hiding from a guy,
    who apparently wants to get him in the oven, by placing a
    lampshade on his head and standing on a dresser so he looks like a
    lamp. Besides the Funny Facts, the next app which will also give you lots of laughs is Funny Jokes, an
    app which you can download from Google Play Store.

  17. Most of you hunger to know more about the glitzy life styles of
    glamorous celebrities and sensual models. Also, find one that has includes
    videos explaining the latest news because that is sometimes the best way to see it.
    Every now and then, new stars emerge and disappear in the blink
    of an eye and every smallest detail about the same becomes important
    celebrity news.
