Nicole by OPI Canadian Star

Good morning, TGIF! Anyone have fun plans this weekend? Maybe you're going to fun Halloween parties or something? I'm not doing much, a friend was trying to talk me into going to Knotts Scary Farm. If you aren't from So Cal and have no idea what that is, it's a theme park that they make all scary for Halloween with mazes and scary things etc. Anyway, I probably won't be going to that. I went with my cousin to something similar at The Queen Mary a few years ago and a bunch of those "monsters" all scared the freaking hell out of me like 4 times in a row, it's pretty much scarred me for life lol.

Today I have a gorgeous polish to show you guys! I got this from my awesome friend Kirsten from Glitta Gloves (you should follow her if you don't already!!).  This wonderful polish is called Canadian Star, it's from Nicole by OPI and it was part of the Justin Bieber Collection exclusive to Canada. If you want this I suggest you befriend a Canadian, unless of course you live there...then you just need to find it! Canadian Star is a really gorgeous blue/pink/purple duochrome. It's similar to Sally Hansen HD DVD, maybe just a touch darker. Formula wise, if you have this I would suggest layering it over something. I needed five coats for the photos below and in person I could still see some bald spots. Other than that, no complaints. I think the awesome color makes up for the not so awesome sheer formula!

  4. Gorgeous color. I believe I got this polish in a mini 4 pack here in America, unless the US version is different from Canada. 

    Also, Knotts is nowhere near as bad (good? lol) as Queen Mary. Their mazes are not as scary, IMO, and all are well lit. Also, they kind of herd you through them in a continuous line so you're rarely by yourself and can generally see the monsters coming. I would just stay away from the "scare zones" if you are jumpy and do decide to go, or tag along with a big group. Saturday nights are especially crowded. 

    Another thing they have up on QM is RIDES! If you do go, I definitely recommend seeing "The Hanging"! Best show there.

  10. You should go to Knott's Scary. I'm usually a chicken for that kind of thing (like I have panic attacks and stuff) but after the first couple of times I got scared (tears were shed), I got over it and it was a lot of fun! GOOOO It'll be fun!!!

  12. This colour is so pretty but it kinda reminds me of OPI DS Magic and Orly Lunar Esclipse.

  13. I don't actually own either of those polishes but I think they are much more blue (judging by photos anyway).

  14. Wow! This is a real beauty! I did not realize Nicole put out different shades exclusive for sale in Canada only. To my eye, this looks a lot lighter than OPI DS Magic and also this Nicole has more duo/trichrome to it.
