Sephora by OPI in Under My Trench Coat

Described as a "light grey khaki with gold shimmer", Under My Trench Coat (one of Sephora's newest colors) satisfied this week's need for a more muted nail color. As always, this color looks so much better in real life. I like how it's so different from the bold, bright colors that I usually sport. Definitely a hit for fall!

I think this picture does the color the most justice...the other pictures make the color look too grey. This picture above captures the khaki

So it seems I have a bit of a nail obsession as of late....I can't stop eyeing and buying nail polish! I haven't even tried all the colors I currently have and still I continue to add to the collection. Meet my three newest acquisitions:

From left to right: Mod Hatter, Berry Berry Broadway, and Sahara Sapphire

I stopped by a random beauty salon a few days ago and noticed that they were doing a 50% off sale on a bunch of discontinued OPI and Orly colors. I ended up getting these three because they look like very winter-y colors, no?

Also gave in to those rave reviews for Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. For $9.99 it's definitely a very pricey top coat, but after I tried it last night on top of three coats of Under My Trench Coat, I could understand why people love it so much. It made my awkwardly painted right hand nails (sooo hard for me to paint with my left hand since I'm right-handed!) super smooth and perfect. AND it really did dry fast (though not as fast as my Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat) and make my nails look incredibly shiny. The formula is a bit thicker than traditional top coat polishes, but that didn't bother me at all. Definitely my new favorite!

Last, but not least, another top coat polish. This one is supposed to make whatever color polish is underneath look holographic. I was intrigued, so I swatched a bit on top of my Ocean Love Potion polish and it looked pretty cool! I can't wait to try this on top of a darker color though :)
