OPI Lacquer Giveaway!!

By now, my OPI obsession precedes me. Polishing my nails is one of my stress-relieving techniques, so I tend to be slightly compulsive when it comes to collecting various polishes (or, "lacquers" as OPI officially terms them.) And yes, I'm an OPI snob. This was solidified last summer when, in a rush to complete some nail art, I bought a small $3 bottle of navy blue polish from Walmart, telling myself "How much of a difference could it make, really?"

Oh, it makes a difference.

And the obsession was born.

The other day, I was looking at my polish rack and realized something:

(Yes, that's actually hanging in my bathroom. Isn't it beautiful? *sigh*)

I will never use all of those polishes!

Either there are duplicates, colors I don't really care for, or ones I'll use so infrequently it's not worth taking up the space.

Obviously, I could take the ones I don't plan on using and sell them piece by piece on Amazon...for a nice profit, I might add, since individual bottles are more expensive than lots.

However, I think it would be much more fun to instead have a special OPI giveaway!

For this giveaway you have the chance to win:

Houston, We Have A Purple
A lovely pinky-purple sorbet shade,
meaning it's slightly translucent with two coats, opaque with three
Think of it like lip gloss for your nails

Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?
If you like orange, you will LOVE this sorbet color.
I don't :) I gave it a shot, but I still can't do orange

Mod-ern Girl
This one is more of a peach in person than it looks in the pic.
Less orange, more pink, very feminine and springy

Lincoln Park After Dark
A gorgeous black plum
It's even darker than in the pic, great for fall or toes year-round

Big Hair, Big Nails
This is the perfect kind of salmon color
You just *feel* the beach with this one on, another sorbet shade

Teal the Cows Come Home
This is a super-fun shimmer, but I have too many blues
So it's gotta go *sniff*

Guy Meets Gal-veston
This is a lovely shade of coral with just a pinch of extra pink.
This is another sorbet shade

*disclaimer: all of these were either purchased by me or won in other giveaways. OPI is not a sponsor or endorser of this giveaway. All polishes have been tested for quality.
