Before I dive into today’s Manicure Monday, I wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who had wished me a happy birthday, celebrated my twenty ninth birthday with me and supporting me on this next year of my life. I am very happy to have an amazing support system through this life of mine and I know it may be a bit premature, but I am enjoying my last year in my twenties so far.
Today on the Crystal Avenue, I wanted to quickly pop in before May and the Taurus season is completely over with a Manicure Monday, featuring OPI’s Infinite Shine 2 in the color “Olive for Green.” As Emerald is the May’s birthstone, I thought it would be fitting to choose a green nail varnish color. A couple of weekends ago, I stopped by my neighborhood Ulta and picked up “Olive for Green.” One of the downsides of OPI’s Infinite Shine “Olive for Green” is I feel like the nail varnish would have last longer if you had purchased the specific Infinite Shine base coat, color, and top coat together. The color unfortunately started chipping by the third day, even with a top coat. The reason why I didn’t want to purchase the Infinite Shine base and top coat is I wanted to try the nail polish on its own, since I already had another one of OPI’s base and top coat and did not want to purchase the base and top coat for an additional $12 a pop. However, I may go back to purchase the Infinite Shine base and top coat to see how much of a difference on its wear and if there is a physical difference. Aside from purchasing the set and the price point, I absolutely loved the color. “Olive for Green” was not too dark on my nails than it did in the jar and I only needed to apply the standard two layers to get the vibrant color.
I promise I will stray away from the color green for the next few Manicure Mondays and add more variety, since it feels like there was only a small gap in between two greens. I will see you all in my next post. Take care for now!
