burlesque + dusty haul

Ever since the press release came out, I have been DYING to get my hands on OPI's new Burlesque collection. OPI does the best glitters!

Extra-va-vaganza, Sparkle-icious, Glow Up Already, Bring on the Bling, Simmer & Shimmer, Show It & Glow It


Let Me Entertain You, The Show Must Go On, Rising Star, Ali's Big Break, Tease-y Does It, Take the Stage


After buying all the Burlesques, I went to go look at this "dusty" (a really old beauty supply or nail salon that carries old, dusty, and sometimes HTF polishes) that someone told me about. The result- great success! :)

Swing Time, Crimson King, Illumination, Rainbow Mix, Deep Emerald to Penny Copper

I totally failed to capture the amazing duo/multi chromes in all of the Optic Lusion polishes... I wore Swing Time yesterday and it was amazing. Pics soon!

Cool Cucumber, At Your Quebec and Call, Sew Psyched

I love Orly's old bottles... they have .75 fl oz of polish rather than the standard .5. However, the bottle is too tall to fit in my polish racks :(

With the exception of Sew Psyched, all the polishes from the dusty are full of hazardous chemicals, which means they have an amazing thin and just perfect application. If you don't mind the smell. Which I don't... so it's a win-win situation!
