OPI Pack Your Booty Shorts & Smitten Polish Lovely Lilacs

Hi everyone!!

For this Twinsie Tuesday, we are supposed to share a mani with our favorite color.  Everyone knows my favorite polish color is pink, but since I share pink at least once a week on the blog, many times more, I decided to use my second favorite color, purple.


I decided to go with two polishes that I've waited way too long to try, OPI Pack Your Booty Shorts and Smitten Polish Lovely Lilacs.

Pack Your Booty Shorts is a neon purple from the Summer 2012 Ulta Exclusive collection.  I bought it when I went to Vegas last year.  I was so happy to grab this polish.  Usually I miss out on the Ulta exclusive polishes because I don't have one near me, so I had to take advantage.  The formula was just okay.  It was sheerer than I expected and there was some patchiness when applying.  You can see it a bit on my middle finger.  I used two coats with Orly Nail Defense as a base and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

On my ring finger, I have three coats of Lovely Lilacs by Smitten Polish.  It's a violet jelly base with holo microglitter and pink small hex glitter.  It applied really well and didn't need any under wear.  On my thumb, I used two coats of Pack My Booty Shorts and free handed Lovely Lilacs on half of the nail.

  18. This is an amazing purple! I think purple is my 3rd favorite after blue and green, but I'm totally into purple cremes lately. And that Smitten is so gorgeous! I would totally get some Smitten polishes because I love Noelie and I love her creations.
