OPI's Are We There Yet? + Essie's Shine of the Times Review + Pics

  Hello again!  It would appear that I sadly missed the deadline on the Cult Nails contest (which I thought included the 13th, but I suppose not).  But I have a lovely, bright polish to share today that brightens my spirits.  This is the ever so gorgeous Are We There Yet? from OPI's Touring America collection.  This color was a dream to apply, one of the best-behaved OPI's I've ever used.  The formula is creamy and very forgiving.  I sometimes have problems with OPI's formula, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one.  It is lovely bright salmon color with a lovely subtle shimmer in it.  As an added plus, I have worn it for a day or two with very minimal tip wear and no chipping, which for me is a difficult thing to find in a polish, as I'm so rough on my hands.
  The color is truly lovely, but unfortunately it is impossible to photograph.  In the indoors shot it is more muted than it actually is, but the outdoors shots make it look way brighter than in real life. Sooo, picture the color as being between the two. 

  Isn't it gorgeous?  See how it sparkles in the sunlight?  Also, I put Essie's gorgeous flakie Shine of the Times over my accent nail.  It's basically a dupe of Nubar's 2010 (which I also have, but have yet to post), but the flakie pieces are smaller and more densely packed.  The flakies shift from green to orange, and I think it works perfectly together with Are We There Yet?.  It makes my accent nail look like a beautiful opal!

  I am really happy with how this turned out! What do you think?
