Hello from Hong Kong!
After a pretty crappy start to my trip (long but awesome flight because I got upgraded to business class!! yay!!) I'm now here in my parent's apartment on Hong Kong island. I have a whole week here to relax and go shopping and I'm really looking forward to it!
Before I left home, I did swatches of a whole bunch of colours so that I still had stuff to post while I was away. Today I have OPI's Simply Smashing and Black Shatter to show you. I'm a little late to the party with this one, but I still wanted to show you guys anyway.
Simply Smashing is one of those ugly pretty colours in my opinion. I'm not really convinced I like it, but it is an unusual colour so it wins points on that account. It was a little sheer, but it built up with the second coat. However you could still see VNL. This colour definitely reminds me of a tennis ball!
Simply Smashing was released in a set with Black Shatter, the black crackle polish. I added a coat of this over Simply Smashing. I personally am not a fan of this duo.... I love Black Shatter, but I'm just not feeling it over the top of this colour.
It's just a quick post for today. I'm still trying to get used to the time zone and I want to get up early tomorrow to go out shopping (and hunting for nail polish!). Hopefully the nail polish fairies are on my side and I find some awesome stuff to show you while I'm here - wish me luck!
