Good morning, I hope everyone's looking forward to the upcoming 3 day weekend, at least here in the U.S.A.! Today is my busy day when I'm out of the house most of the day, so I'll try and catch up on everyone's blogs this evening. My NOTD is another of the MAC's I got earlier this week at the CCO. I usually get a bunch of new polishes, try one out and then they go into the drawer of untried's never to be seen again for a long time. So in an attempt to use them and show them to you in more than just a haul/bottle picture, here's my second one of the three I got, Vin Goth. I like the name, a little play on words. It's a very dark purple, reminding me a bit of grape juice, even slightly darker. It has quite a bit of sparkle and shimmer in the bottle, but that doesn't seem to transfer to the nail quite as vividly as it looks in the bottle. It's a pretty color though, and was opaque in 2 coats with an easy application. I did call the CCO yesterday to see if they had any more of Toast of the Town (my post yesterday), but they didn't. I thought it would be fun to use them as prizes in a contest, but it was not to be.
With matte polishes being all the rage, according to the fashion industry and many of the blogs I read, I was Google searching mattes and came across this brief article about OPI Matte 2009, which is said to have 6 "in demand" colors and I assume, be released for Fall 2009. I adore mattes and will be doing some more posting on them next week. I can't find any other information to support this supposed new collection, but if it's true, I'm quite anxious to get a look at it. I already have an idea of 6 shades I would love to see them release in a matte finish, but with OPI being somewhat on the conservative side, in my opinion, I doubt they'll be thinking the same shades as me. What colors would you like them to release in this collection? A dark forest green would be my first choice, a dark teal would be wonderful, and of course a burgundy is always nice for Fall. Here's what the article (from beautypackaging.com) says:
