Classic Monday "Yule Love This Silver" Review

Yule Love This Silver was released as part of the 2001 (I believe, correct me if I'm wrong please!) OPI Holiday Collection.

Yule Love This Silver has a clear base and is jammed full of holo (!) micro glitter! In the bottle the colour can seem a little done (who doesn't have a bottle or two of silver glitter polish?) but once you see it in direct light.  Holy crap! It's awesome! Super sparkly. I could not stop staring at my nails!

Cloud Mani or Step Mani

Once again I blame the wine...okay maybe I'm a little tiny bit to blame

I tried to re-create my own version of the "Cloud Mani" seen over at  Nailside, but mine looks more like steps. I'm not really happy with how it turned out but practise makes perfect. Since I believe and nail art is all about trial and error, here we go!
