My NOTD's of the Week

First up Opi Live and Let Die. I was so exited when this nail mail arrived - finally I could join the band wagon!!! To be very honest, I like the colour, the formula is superb - HOWEVER, I am not head over heels about this one. Mind you, the application and performance is immaculate. The colour as described - still on me not my most favorite!! These are 2 coats of Opi Live and Let Die over Essie Fill the Gap Base Coat and Butter London Hardwear Top Coat:

On Tuesday I found nail mail in my mailbox from a wonderful Instagram friend from the Netherlands. We swapped some polishes and hers was a surprise box - she picked some awesome colour's from brands I have not tried yet so it is a win on both sides. I constantly collect "perfect" reds (one can become so obsessed with this) and she added one to my collections. These are 3 Coats of NYC Fine Red Wine over Essence XXL Nail Thickener, topped with Essie Good to Go:

And then I re-used Dior Amazonia - I cannot get over how much I love this polish. So that was a quick re-appearance but well, I wore it so it belongs in to my weekly summary ;-)

So what were your NOTD's? Which polish is your current favorite that you reach for nearly weekly?

I am looking forward to reading your comments!!!

Thanks for reading!!
