OPI Clubbing Til Sunrise

Post two for the 31 Day (Post) Challenge: Orange! I chose OPI's Clubbing Til Sunrise.

I received this in my second swap with Nicole from Top to Toe. One thing I love about doing swaps is the surprises you get. Especially when those surprises are something you wouldn't have picked out for yourself. I was a little iffy about this when I saw it in the bottle, and even when I started to put in on. But, the longer I had it on, the more I really liked it. It's a really lovely summer color. I got a lot of compliments on it as well. One coworker said it reminded him of tangerines!

As you can see, Clubbing Til Sunrise is a shimmery orange, that can look a little frosty. It's from 2009s South Beach collection. The application process was smooth. I ended up with a fair amount of air bubbles, but my Poshe top coat is getting goopy, so I'm going to blame it on that. I used two coats. I think most people would end up going with three, as I can still see a bit of visible nail line if I really look for it. But I sort of liked that not-quite-opaque look.

I also should mention, this stuff wears SO WELL on me! I've had it on for five days now, and I only have a couple tiny, barely noticeable chips (and a bit of tip wear). OPI wears well on me in general, but this stuff is really impressive!

In other nail polish related news, I recently did a swap with Lindsay at Nailtopia. This is what she sent!

Joe Fresh Gun Metal & Twilight (!). OPI DS Passion & Fantasy (!!!). Gosh Ocean & Gasoline. Nail art tool. Big Ruby Nail Tattoos (Mod Designs).
Lindsay picked out some really awesome stuff for me! I've had my eye on those nail art dotting tools, so it's great to have one. And the nail tattoos are so cute! I love 50s mod graphics, and I'm so excited to play with these! And, of course, ALL THE GORGEOUS POLISHES! Can't wait to fit some of these into the 31 Day Challenge. Thanks so much, Lindsay. It was a blast doing the swap!
