OPI Pirouette My Whistle, Skittles Swatch Part 2

Hello! If you missed part 1 click here! I’m not going to say anything else about Pirouette My Whistle (PMW) because it’s all in part 1. But I will say that I love it and I will be using it again in a post, who knows when though?

So here’s the right hand! PMW is 2 coasts on all nails with Sally Hansen Intsa Dri Topcoat. Sorry about the middle finger I was already beyond frustrated to fix it!

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Kleancolor Melon Green

Kleancolor Melon Green is 3 coats. Kind of frosty builds nicely.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Sinful Colors Secret Admirer

3 coats of Sinful Colors Secret Admirer. This doesn’t dry real fast but it doesn’t take forever. 2 coats probably would have been fine. I’m not exactly sure what I was thinking when I choose this. Individually this is different from a regular black because it’s loaded with very fine silver glitter that is just a tiny bit smaller then the silver in the in PMW. So is basically the same as my other index finger just a bit more silver glitter. 😛

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Revlon Minted

Revlon Minted is in 3 coats. This is another polish that likes to bald badly. So I ended up putting the last coat thick. So apparently while picturing the left hand first I must have pressed it to hard into the camera. I was pretty sure it was dry and since I already had to monkey with it just to get it on the nail in the first place I didn’t want to go through another headache to fix it. Pretty much the same as SC Unicorn on the middle finger, left hand.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Sinful Colors Nirvana

3 coats of SC Nirvana. It seems like a few of the SC’s like to bald and never dry. This one isn’t as bad as Unicorn but you have to carefully lay it on thick.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

3 coats of SC Ruby Ruby. I pretty good formula especially compared to the majority of the other SC’s I used for this swatching.

I hope you enjoyed the swatches of PMW.

Zoya: Carmen.

Hi there! Around V-day Zoya had a promotion where you spent at least $4 and you could get any red polish of your choice (and maybe free shipping too? It’s been awhile). I don’t really own a lot of reds, especially cremes. As I looked through all of their reds they had this one “Carmen”. I thought picking my red would be hard but that name made it easy for me because that is my mothers name. It’s been over a year since she passed and I guess you could just call me silly but that’s why I picked this color.

Zoya Carmen

Zoya Carmen done in 2 coats. This is a very bright red, with a tiny tiny bit of blue tone to  it.

To me this red is still like “WOW!” Haha. Surprisingly, I really do like it! I’ll have to do it on both hands someday and see how much I hate like it. 😀

What about you? What about matching lips and nails?

Cherry Nails


This design was one made by Dollface22772 on Youtube Titled “Cherries Jubilee”.

This is my own variation of it. I didn’t have any of the cherry fimo slices so I had painted the cherries using a dotting tool. Also instead of using a pink crackle polish, I painted over the white edge on one corner with a red polish. Then covered it with a white crackle polish.

Polishes I Used:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Seche Vite
  • White: Salley Hansen Xtreme Wear “White On”
  • White Crackle: Chine Glaze Crackle Glaze “Lightning Bolt”
  • White Stripe: Sinful Colors “Bad Chick”
  • Red Stripe: Sinful Colors “Be my Valentine”
  • Green Stems: L.A. Colors Art Deco “Bright Green”
