Weekend Mani #8

This weekend was really the start of it being really quite cold here in the north east, with temperatures at night time getting as low as about 7 or 8 degrees, not what we have been used to! 

I do love it though as the days are bright and crisp and really blows the cobwebs away on the way to work.  

This weekends mani reflects the Autumnal change with O.P.I. 'Casino Royale' from the 2012 Skyfall Collection.  This is a lovely plummy creme polish, the consistency is just right and I got this opaque in two coats.  In the photos, I'm not wearing any topcoat and just look how shiny the finish is.  This is a great autumn colour.

On the ring finger is 'The one that got away' this is from the 2010 Katy Perry Collection.  This, I think is the only full collection of OPI that I own.  

I had never used either of these two polishes before and so I wasn't sure how opaque 'The one that got away' would be, hence the layering over another colour, but I don't think I need to worry, the consistency again was spot on and it is really just gorgeous.  It's a plummy purply colour with tiny glass type flecks of fuschia.

I again apologise for the iphone pictures, I feel they really don't capture how gorgeous these polishes are together.  Even when I went and got my brows done, the therapist was admiring them.  

I was round at my mum's watering their tomatoes while they were away on holiday and couldn't not take pictures in their garden.

When I was in the Beauty salon, they had the new Essie 2013 fall collection in and I happened to have my bottle of 'The one that got away in my bag' .  The glass flecked finish is quite similar to that of 'The lace is on', see The PolishAholics swatches here, but that is more pinky purple.

Last garden shot, I liked the Autumnal colours here.  My mums neighbours must have thought I was bonkers wandering around the garden taking pictures of my hand! Haha!

Have you any favourite nail colours lined up for Autumn?

Do you have any polishes you haven't tried yet?
