OPI The One That Got Away

First up a recap on my wedding dress shopping......

It was awesome!!!!
First of we went to Astra Bridal. I really really love the look of Maggie Sottero dresses. They look so great in the pictures and are made of great fabric. But after trying on about 8 of these dresses I knew they weren't the dresses for me. :(

Next up was brides on Thorndon. By this stage I had more of a picture in my head of what I did and didn't want. I knew I wanted white (my mum kept saying no to white but I knew it was fine on me and everyone else agreed white was great on me), I knew I didn't want lace, or too many sparkles. I wanted big and poofy.

The ladies at Brides on Thorndon were really nice. They picked out about 7 dresses for me to try on. Turns out the first dress I tried on was perfect. They made me try on 3 others, but I still liked the first one. An hour later I left the shop with the first dress in a bag and all mine. It fits perfectly now, is the right colour and size and is discontinued so is no longer available so that it was on sale. I never thought it would be that easy at all.

I'm not going to say to much about what it looks like in case some one who isn't supposed to see it sees what it looks like. So if you want me to send you a link of what I got email me.

Anywho onto the polish you came here for....

My mum came over the other day and started doing her nails with this polish and ended up taking it home with her. I kind of cringe every time she does her nails because she is so terrible at it and ends up with polish everywhere.

OPI The one that got away - natural light

This is three coats. It is a pretty dark fuchsia with the glass effect finish.

OPI Black Shatter over The one that got away - natural light

I think I like this one better with out the shatter on top. I have a huge soft spot for fuchsia pink polishes, and this one is really pretty. Plus my shatter is still really goopy and thick.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
Lots of Love
