NOTD: OPI Pepe`s purple passion 040512

4 years ago

Its been almost three weeks Ive gone without polishing my nails because of the hectic exam period. Im glad I can relax a bit and have some me time before my life gets all busy again. I was more than excited to use this polish because Ive seen a swatch on Scrangies page and it totally pulled me in. I hate to say this but Im really not feeling this manicure.

Pepes purple passion is from the Muppets collection and its a dark sort of purple with flakies that flashes purple and gold. I dont know why but it didnt look so good when I applied it. I even had trouble applying it in the first place. I guess it might have been that I havent touched this interest in so long Ive become crap at it.

Application wasnt too good and the brush didnt help either. It dried a little too quickly whilst I was applying so I had to load my brush with a little more. Talking about the brush it annoyed the crap out of me. Its a bit too square and fat for my liking that it doesnt catch the sides of my nails without getting all over the edges. It wasnt easy painting near the cuticles with it too. Being how dark it is I still needed two coats. Maybe three would have been better but I couldnt bear to carry on. I think because of the flakies it didnt feel too smooth so having a thick top coat would be handy. Or two thin coats would be good too.

I didnt file my nails beforehand because I thought they looked fine at first. Didnt think so after since the polish made me realise how some nails werent straight enough, some longer or filed more rounded than the others. This obviously made me dislike it even more.

I just quickly snapped a few photos without caring less about whether they looked good or not. This manicure isnt staying. After my shower tonight itll be gone. Ill update you guys on what I put on next ;)

What do you guys think of my NOTD?
