OPI - It's My Year (aka: my engagement polish!)

Hi everyone!

First off, I want to say thank you for all of the lovely comments you left on my engagement announcement post. They've made this special time that much more special. And you should know that David has read each and every one of them as well and he's feeling quite proud of himself! You're all making his head swell, haha!

With that said, today I will be showing you a swatch of my new favourite nail polish - OPI It's My Year. As many of you already know, this is the polish that David used in his proposal to me, so I of course had to immediately put it on my nails as a full mani! (Luckily, I already owned this shade, so I used my own bottle and the special proposal bottle will be placed on display in our living room.)

OPI It's My Year is from the limited edition Miss Universe Collection that was released last summer. It's a lovely purple base with heavy gold foil shimmer. It's quite eye-catching and it's a polish that even without the new special meaning, I would have worn as a full mani on a regular basis.

The formula is on the thin side, but it's easy to work with and definitely not to the point of being runny. I used three coats for my swatch.

I'm pretty much still in shock about the engagement and it feels so surreal to even be talking about it! And I can't stop staring at my rock of a ring! He did good, haha.

I'm definitely going to be on a high for quite some time now. :)
