Nicole by OPI I Love You Cherry Much

I was most excited about this next shade from the Something About Color Collection - Target Exclusive... I Love You Cherry Much.  While the promo pictures didn't really show it, this was not your ordinary red... it had flakies!  Granted, it's red flakes, but it's flakies.  I actually didn't love the shade of red but really wanted to use this for a pedicure so I first used a coat of OPI Stranger Tides which helped tone down the brightness of this red.

For this manicure, I used a base of OPI Natural Nail, 2 coats of polish and a top of OPI Top Coat.  The brush is the old skinny brush but application was a dream.

Look how happy this color is!  I think the best way for me to explain flakies is look at fish food - the little flakes?  Yeah, that's what you're seeing in the bottom of my nail polish bottle down there.  It gets a bit lost on the nail but I still love it.

Even in the shade, this color is hot.  You can almost see a bit of a purple tint coming through but I think that's just the really BLUE sky I had going on that day.  Yay for good weather!

Finally indoors with the flash and it's still just really hot hot hot!  Definitely in my top 10 Nicole by OPI colors ever.  Totally the star of this collection.
