OPI Damone Roberts 1968

OPI Damone Roberts 1968 is a shade I've wanted to own ever since I first started blogging. The limited edition polish was created in collaboration with US eyebrow king Damone Roberts and is one of the prettiest green polishes I've seen. Back then I wasn't as crazy about polish so I never got around to getting it as I couldn't justify the price + shipping. I even did a post to see if anyone wanted to do a group order to split the costs but no takers sadly. But when I found out he was re-releasing the polish this year for the last time I HAD to own it even though it was double the price it was in 2009. I didn't care!

What they say:

OPI's "Damone Roberts 1968" Nail Polish was created by OPI in 2009 to celebrate the brand...Damone Roberts. The color was matched directly from our Beverly Hills & New York Salon walls in an effort to bring the unique pistachio tone, described by Damone himself as "a different green with undertones of a soft grey, and a warm brown that works well on every skin tone".

The masses seem to agree, as the color has sold out worldwide twice now. This polish is quite the hot commodity and bottles presently can be found on Ebay retailing for $75.00 each. We are proud to announce that OPI & Damone have teamed up for the third time to bring you a limited collector item quantity available Summer 2014.

Damone Roberts 1968 is a soft mint green and having finally worn it myself now I know why it's such a sought after shade and I am totally and utterly in love with it. For starters the formula is ABSOLUTE perfection. Oh man I'm talking glides-on-so-smoothly-I-could-cry kind of buttery perfection. The shade has a gorgeous softness to it that I love and I think it would work well with most skintones. It dries quickly and to a high gloss shine. 2 beautifully even coats is pictured below.

Overall: OPI Damone Roberts 1968 definitely lives up to the hype and I love love LOVE this mint green. I can't believe I didn't purchase it years ago! It's pretty pricey though but I'm a sucker for limited edition shades so it was worth the wait and price for me. I'm just so happy I finally own a bottle! I also picked up a few back up bottles too x)

Details: Available from Damoneroberts.com and Damone Roberts salons in the US for $20US.

WAH Nails Topshop and meet up with Aysh!

When the hubby and I decided we were going to London for our honeymoon I knew I wanted to schedule some time to get my nails done at WAH Nails. I also couldn't go to London without meeting my gorgeous friend Aysh from Truly Madly Beauty who I've been chatting to and swapping polish with over the last few years. The hubby very generously agreed to occupy himself in London for an afternoon so I could have some girlie nail, shopping and high tea time with her!!

I FINALLY got to meet this beautiful girl OMG!! ♥ I always say it but one of the best things about blogging has been the people I've met and this gorgeous girl is one of them. Why do you have to live so far away though???!

Aysh kindly booked us in to the WAH Nails Topshop salon way in advance for us to get our nails done. Their nail art menu is extensive and it's seriously hard to decide what designs to get. I went all out and went with 10 different designs because who knows when I'll be back in London. I hope that I'll be back soon but I couldn't take any chances!

Aysh's amazing poison ivy mani! The green is from Color Club and it's so bright and fun. I can't remember the name of it now but I want it!

HOW COOL WAS MY MANI???????? I could not stop staring at my nails and I didn't want to change my polish except I needed a toned done mani for our trip on the Orient Express so I had to remove it =( It lasted a good 4-5 days though! The designs I got from left to right: bubble letters, flying eyes, POW!, studded Egyptian, poison ivy, breakfast at WAH, swallows and studs, lightning bolt, polka bows and rainbow tribal. PHEW!

Showing off our new manis! I think it's a good thing I don't live in London actually because I'd probably be at Topshop every week instead of doing my nails myself. And I'd make Aysh come with me too haha!!

Some of the cool designs on display! I really wish I had this amount of talent for all the intricate designs they offer. Something to aspire ;)

We finished off the afternoon with a delicious high tea and a spot of shopping too! The afternoon just flew by and it went by waaaaaay too quickly! I can't believe it's been 2 months already.

I'm finally sorting through all my photos from my honeymoon and I'll be sharing some soon! I took hundreds of photos and going through them all is so time consuming lol. Thanks for looking as always!
