Warming up with A Roll in the Hague

Today I have a super-hot manicure for you.   I just love orange polish of every shade from pastel to neon.   I’m pretty sure it is the colour I have the most bottles of. 

 OPI -A Roll in the Hague

I was inspired by a fellow New Zealand blogger Michaela over at Nail Polish Anon. That blog name kills me!  To me it’s like the complete opposite of a support group, I feel so encouraged in my addiction with every post she writes! So I took inspiration when she posted her mani of OPI - A Roll in the Hague last week here.  
I have only ever used this polish once when I first got it but not again since.  I found it a bit thick to work with that first time however my polish skills have improved a lot in the last couple of months so I was able to place the Polish on better and was happy enough at just 1 coat.  I then added China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat but honestly it was this shiny even before the top coat.  Love it!

 Down in the Southern Hemisphere it’s pretty chilly and dreary right now as we’re into Winter.  Having something bright on my nails really lifted my spirits this week.   It  was also helped by the accent nail I created by adding a coat of Essie Shine of the Times.  It reminds me of flames.  I just love Shine of the times it looks good layered over everything or sandwiched or mattified, the list goes on.

And i just had to include a couple of shots I managed to snap as the sun came out a couple of hours later and I was napping.

Don't you just love how polish colour and texture can change your mood?
