On my nails this week: OPI San Tan-Tonio & Nails Inc Wellington Square

First of all, I would like to wish all mums a Happy Mother's Day! I hope you are having a lovely Sunday! 

I received three bottles of nail polish from QVC recently and I have been using them since last weekend. My first choice was the OPI  San Tan-Tonio*. The shade is a dark nude/cappuccino kind of colour and it looks really lovely on the nails. I really like the names of OPI nail polishes and this one is so clever :) 

I added Seche Vite Top Coat* to prolong the wear time and I am so impressed with it!! I was meaning to buy it a long time ago, but I simply forgot. I am really glad that I finally gave it a go. It dries really quickly and adds a gorgeous shine to the manicure. I totally get the hype around it now. 

The other shade I used this week was Wellington Square* by Nails Inc. I adore peachy colours on my nails and this one is simply beautiful. It has coral hues, but it isn't to bright. Perfect!  I will get a lot of use out of it in Spring and Summer. 

I would like to try more shades from OPI.  I am really drawn to this brand for some reason. 
I like the shape of their bottle, the brush, quirky names etc. If you have any shade recommendations, please leave them in the comments. I would love to know your favourite.

  7. Really nice choice of shades, I think Wellington Square is my favourite of the shades you've chosen but I love OPI too. My favourite polishes from them are in the So So Skullicious set they did last year, I'll have to do a review on them when I get a chance :-)
