It's Not Me, It's Blue...or is it?

Hey Everyone!!! So I finally went to the doctor yesterday. I hate the doctor, not my doctor in particular, just in general. I think I got 3 hours of sleep the night before due to anxiety. It would appear the never ending congestion and crappy feeling is due to an upper respiratory infection SO I should be feeling better soon. YAY! I had the worst headache after all the stress and lack of sleep that I crashed on the couch when I got home. I am hoping the congestion decides to leave completely in the coming days but I am already feeling better so that is good. I should be good to go from now on! 

Today I have a polish I recently picked up, I think it was on clearance at Target. I love clearance and rarely can resist things with that red sticker on them.

Nicole by OPI It's not Me, It's Blue. It is a gorgeous shimmery blue and it captivated my attention in the bottle.

Unfortunately on the nail I wasn't as thrilled with it. It was quite sheer and I had to use 3 coats and still had some visible nail line.

I was playing with Play Doh with my son the day I took these pictures. I of course had to pose with my rose.

This polish seemed more blue gray and not really blue on me. It is a nice shade but the fact that is wasn't really blue, was very sheer and didn't look like it did in the bottle very much bothered me.

I had some major tip wear from work so please excuse that. 

This polish borders on a gray/silver with a touch of blue in my book. I love the shimmer though.

I am thinking maybe with some dark blue underwear I might like this polish more. I had my heart set on it being blue.

The visible nail line is killing me in these pictures. I know the flash exaggerated it but it drives me nuts lol.

The jury is still out on this polish for me. I am going to give it another go before I decide if I really like it or not. I do love the shimmer and the color is not horrible but I had my heart set on what I saw in the bottle. I didn't get that color when I put it on the nail so I was slightly disappointed.

Some more of my Play Doh creations. 

This was my alligator. He looked a lot cooler in real life.

Dice. I love dice.

One more of my rose. 

That's all for now :)


  1. I actually like the color on your nails. Very pretty- and I like the picture with the rose too.

    1. Thank you :) The color is growing on me the more I look at the pictures lol. I am very proud of my little rose so thank you very much for that :)

  2. This truly looks amazing in the bottle. You should definitely layer it over something. I've seen a lot of polishes that show their beauty only when layered.

    1. You might be right! I am going to try layering it soon. Maybe over a dark blue? hmmm yes, we will try layering it. :)
