OPI Femme de Cirque swatches, OPI Step Right Up! swatches, OPI I Juggle...Men swatches


Happy Monday!!  Apologies for another nail polish post – with my cracked cuticles, it’s obvious that I’m not turning into a nail beauty blogger anytime soon but I have been rather obsessed with painting my nails recently and ignoring every other cosmetic product under the sun (which explains why I haven’t cracked open these babies yet).  Anyway, enough rambling from me and gaze your eyes upon OPI Step Right Up! and OPI I Juggle…Men from the Femme de Cirque collection which was released in Spring 2011.

OPI Step Right Up!

OPI Step Right Up! is a semi-opaque milky pink and even after 3 coats, you can still see VNL (visible nail line).  It’s a versatile shade suitable for any occasion – love it!  I just rummaged through my nail polish collection and I reckon it’s a whiter version of OPI Bubble Bath which I adore as well.

(For eagled-eyed readers, you’ll remember that I used this shade for my newspaper nail art.)

OPI I Juggle…Men

OPI I Juggle…Men – fantastic name!  I simply adore the quirky cool names that OPI come up with!  For me, I Juggle…Men works best as a topcoat rather than on its own.  It has got pink and lilac micro-shimmer through the formula – but sadly, there’s not enough and I am left wanting more!

Do you own any OPI Nail Lacquers?  I’m slowly but surely adding more and more to my collection.  They are awesome nail polishes but I wish they weren’t so expensive at nearly $20 AUD a pop.  Oh and before I forget…Dear the OPI-shade-naming-person – I salute you!

    I own a few OPI Nail Lacquers but they are extremely pricey in both the UK and Malaysia so I usually purchase them online. Am loving these nude-y shades you’ve got and I need to give that newspaper manicure a go! =D

      @Sukie, Yeah, they are pricey everywhere but half the price in US! Not fair!!! And don’t forget to tell me when you do the newspaper manicure 🙂 I wanna see!

    Majority of my nail stash consists of OPI and China Glaze! I love them. Very rarely do I come across an OPI shade that disappoints. I like the combination of Step Right Up! & I Juggle…Men 🙂

      @Beauty Snippets, I love China Glaze too…but so hard to get my hands on them in Melbourne! Not seen them anywhere at all!
