OPI Espresso Your Style, and Gold Shatter

Good Morning lovely readers! I have been thinking of all of you that may have been affected in one way or another by hurricane Irene. I hope this finds you well and safe and relatively dry. I do not live in a hurricane zone, and we have had really good weather. It's hard to imagine that while skies are blue here, there is an angry storm to the East unleashing her fury on innocent people. I expect we will see the tail end of it here with a few days of rain by the weekend. We are relatively unaffected by most natural disasters in this area, although this year has brought more tornadoes, and hail than I have ever seen in my life, and we have felt two earthquakes as well. By 'feel' I mean I could feel my couch swaying and see my bird feeder swinging. In no way were we ever at risk of any damage here at all. If I had not been sitting still chances are I would not have felt it at all. I really feel for all of you who deal with unsettled Earth on a regular basis.

I swatched OPI Espresso Your Style for a friend of mine, so I decided to show you as well. It is a beautiful rich deep warm brown with a lovely gold shimmer/microglitter. This was three coats, but I admit I was in a bit of a hurry so if I had been more careful I might have been able to get away with two.

 Espresso Your Style was originally released in the Kick up Your Heels collection in 2006, which I believe was a black label. Mine is from the re-release and is a green label.

This was taken outside.

I decided to throw my new OPI Gold Shatter over top just for fun.

Gold Shatter is pretty, and I can't wait to try it over other colours. It didn't shatter well here so I will have to experiment with it over completely dry polish vs slightly tacky polish.

Thanks for looking!

  1. Man I need to get that espresso brown! I didn't realize it had the shimmer in it!

  2. Oh yes. It's amazing. The new espresso from the touring America collex is a creme but this one is shimmer.

  3. Yowza that's a beautiful brown... so excited for all the dark warm colors making a comeback!

  4. I found your blog from your guest post on Polish Fixation (which I loved and commented on!) and it's funny because I just purchased Espresso Your Style, which I had never heard of before, and your first post is a swatch of it. Very cool.

    You have beautiful nails; I love the length and shape of them. Very nice. :)

  5. @ A Polished Touch- thank you for visiting! I'm glad you found something you enjoy. Espresso your style is gorgeous! I am sure you will love it
