89: OPI swatches

Hi again!

Sorry for all the random updates but I wanted to paint my nails tonight and I found my OPI haul from the Sydney International Spa and Beauty Expo. I decided to swatch a few colours tonight and I'll finish with the rest in the next few days. Also I just wanted to ask a quick question. I usually swatch and take pictures at night and I almost always use flash. Do you mind that the swatches are done at night? Would you prefer me to swatch in the morning and take pictures in the sunlight? Let me know what you guys think :) Anways here are the swatches. These pictures were taken with flash and I used 3 coats for all the colours.

This is OPI's No Room For The Blues from the OPI Brights 2009 collection. I was standing in line choosing my colours when this one just popped out of nowhere. It was so bright I just had to take it home. I really like this polish it's a beautiful sky blue colour.

This is OPI's Here Today... Aragon Tomorrow and Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees. These two seemed to be the most talked about colours from OPI's Spain collection. In the 2nd picture you can see what the colours look like with just 1 coat and by the end it's really hard to tell which is which. I have Here Today... Aragon Tomorrow on my index and ring finger and Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees on my middle and pinky. To see the colour difference just click to enlarge the picture.

Last but not least..

I didn't buy this one at the Expo. Instead this has been with me from the very beginning. OPI's Midnight in Moscow is my go to as the 'dress up for date night' polish. I use it more than Chanel's Rouge Noir. I'm about half way done with this bottle so I think I need to stock up soon (clearly just another reason to buy more nail polish!)

Does anyone want to guess what these are? I got them in Hong Kong at my favourite store!


These are Muji's Christmas themed paper clips! How cute <3


This is going to sound really really weird but I've forgotten how to sneeze properly. I used to have a great way to make the sound really soft but ever since the mid 2009 I just go all out and proceed with the AH-CHOO. I don't know what happened but if anybody can teach me how to sneeze discreetly again I'd really appreciate it :)



  1. I really like No Room for the Blues!!

  2. Hey Brooke!

    I feel the same way! Just looking at it makes me feel super happy and ready to start my day :D
