NOTD 20/02/12 OPI Bright Lights-Big Color

It's been a while since I've posted a nail of the day.

I saw this colour on the OPI stand at Unichem. I'd never heard of this shade, but I decided to buy it because I don't have any coral's and Coral is a lovely Spring colour (even though it's Summer here in New Zealand).

At the moment my nails are awful because they're splitting. I'm using OPI Nail Envy nail treatment. Everyday you paint one coat on your nails (except on the first day you apply two coats) . I've left my nails bare for about 4 days. Today, I applied one more coat of Nail Envy and two coats of the OPI colour and one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

I can't say I've noticed the nail envy working yet because I cut my nails right down so they can all grow the same length but I'll let you know about the strengthener in the next few weeks, but I read online it can be used as a base coat.

 Bright Lights-Big Color is a glistening shade of Coral with a light gold shimmer.

I dislike how my camera has made it a vibrant orange - please check out this colour for yourself.

I could've done with more care on the tidy up but I wanted to get this posted and yes I know I need my cuticles done but I can't do them myself because it makes me queasy so I have to wait to see my Manicurist in a few weeks time for her to work her magic.

I think my next NOTD will hopefully be my last for February. It might be another OPI because I'm really getting into OPI's at the moment and I can't wait to get my hands on the Nicki Minaj and Holland Collections.

What colour/shade/brand are you wearing today?
