A Holiday polish turns into a Halloween Mani....OPI Pepes Purple Passion, plus black glitter & moons.

Okay....I'm going to try this for the fourth time. Ugh. I don't know what's going on, but I've typed this post four times, gotten to the end, and it just deletes completely. Sooo annoying.

I had my first Muppet fail today. :-( Ha, Ha....I guess that sound kinda funny, if you don't know what I'm talking about, doesn't it? I'm sure most of you know, I'm talking about the OPI Holiday collection. I had high hopes for this polish. It's super pretty in the bottle, and I love the name. It was an absolute mess to apply though. Somehow, it is thick, yet runny at the same time. I know that doesn't make a lot of sense, but I'm not sure how else to describe it. It's like it's really thick half way down the brush, and then it gets runny. Really strange. I don't know if I just got a bad bottle or what.

Pepes Purple Passion is a deep purple with glass flecks. I used two coats, but should have used one, since the formula was so messy. I somehow thought using the second coat would help. It didn't. I decided I didn't want to take the polish off, so I added a coat of LA Girl Uninhibited, which is small, round black glitter, and black hex glitter. Then I added a polish I picked up in a three back at Marshall's. The brand is called Color Zone, and it's made my Bluecross Beauty. The same brand that makes the cute little pumpkin polishes. The polish I used, doesn't have a name. I LOVE it though. It has med. sized round holo glitter, and holo moon shapes. I could star at the bottle all day! LOL!

I'm going to show you the pics. of the finished mani. first, and then OPI Pepes Purple Passion.

A couple of close up's...

It really doesn't look so bad in the pics. I guess. It was just such a mess. Who knows, maybe I'll give it another chance sometime. ;-)


  1. Looks really pretty, but I know what you mean when you say it's thick but runny!

  2. I think this looks SO great! Good post!

  3. I like the final product! I bet it took long to dry ....

  4. Peace,Love and Polish....Thank you! :-) I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who knows about the thick/runny. LOL! I was starting to think I was crazy. ;-)

    Polish AMOR...Thank you! :-) It did take awhile to dry, since I had so many coats of polish on.
