TOTD: OPI A True Ab-Original

By putting TOTD in the title, I thought that would serve as a warning to those who don't wish to look at toes! But if you're reading this, you're already in, so it's too late! I'm still trying to get the glue off the edges of my fingernails from the false nails I had on the last couple of days, so believe it or not, my toes were the better choice of nails I have to show you. I also chopped my nails down to the nub because I had a peeling one on my right hand and put a nice cut in my left hand thumb nail chopping meat for my dogs yesterday. So hopefully they'll be recovered from the trauma they've suffered by tomorrow. From the Australia collection, True Ab-Original is an red/orange-coral shimmer with a bit of 'glow' to it. It covered nicely in 2 coats and has the Pro-wide brush, which for me, always makes for a quick and easy application. This coral has no pink in it, so if you're looking for a shimmery coral, this would be a perfect choice.

  1. How cute, TOTD! Nice toes and like the polish. What a shame about all that glue. I can't remember who's blog it was that wrote about the glue. I know they said don't use as much as the package says. I guess they want you to mess your own nails up so you'll have to wear their's. Hope your rested up from the party.

  2. Mary - Nice toes he he! So I like this color! I have it untried and I was thinking it would be a great summer pedi color too!

  3. Very pretty. I'll have to add it to my wish list.

  4. Oh, cute color choice for your toes! I like it so much - I'm really developing a love for corals, so I can appreciate this post :)
    I don't think I'll be braving any falsies of any style for a while, I'm still having trouble with a couple of my own nails from acrylics.

  5. That's a great summer toe colour! It's kind of like Paint my Moji-toes from the South Beach collection I think.

    Bad news on the nail. I once cut right through one of mine when slicing the string wrapped round a beef joint so I feel your pain!

  6. Not to worry Mary. you have cutie toes ;)
    That's a really pretty summer shade - perfect toe color!
    Poor you regarding those injuries, hope they'll heal fast ;)

  7. What a pretty color,on such cute toes. I've got a lot of catching up to do. In regards to every ones blog...ugh! Hope your nails recover soon,from the trauma. They've suffered.

  8. Very pretty color. You have cute toes! Sorry about your injury, and Helen reading your comment made me cringe and I tucked my hand to my chest lol. I prefer the making me hungry Helen!

  9. Olivia~thank you :)

    Lucy~thanks! My nails are still a bit messed up tonight as I look at them :(

    Kitty~are you makin' fun of my toes?!! Not my favorite feature :) I like the color though, it is quite summery.

    Nosaby~thank you! I don't think I'd ever used this one before, although I've had it for a while. I really like it.

    Nicole~thanks, I'm very happy with this color. I had gels 2x and never again. They looked great, but the damage lasted for months.

    Helen!thanks, I'm loving the color. A beef joint? Hmmmm...

    Vanessa~my toes are shy, but they thank you for the compliment! I like this color on my toes, probably a bit more than I would on my fingers.

    Velvet~thank you. I get so behind on my blog reading too, but I enjoy reading them all. Thanks for the well wishes on my trauma :)

    Kae~thank you, I love corals and this one has such nice shimmer. Helen's injury sounds very painful, but what in the world is a beef joint? :)

  10. Don't you guys have beef joints there?! All legal! Just a joint/piece of meat that is all tied up in string to hold it together and you sling it in the oven for the great British Sunday roast dinner! Haha!

    It didn't hurt don't worry and it wasn't a bad break (unlike the one I am sporting at the moment) - sorry for making you cringe ladies.
