Purple Crumpet Fairy Spring Challenge Day 5 - OPI You Don't Know Jaques Suede!

Okay so I'm really naughty and I'm going to cheat a little bit because I'm going to Gambia for a week and haven't had a chance to get ahead with these posts. I feel guilty about missing ANY (I'm going to catch up with the ones I miss when I get back) so this is part one of a two day post.

Day 5 is: Spring Clean - A colour you never wear in Spring. I cannot think of a more autumnal colour than OPI's You Don't Know Jaques Suede. I LOVE OPI's suede polishes. Their lives are annoyingly brief however. I didn't wrap my tips when I did these because I need something I can wear all week so I was intending to take them off straight after I took the photos. The tipwear you see in these pictures is after about an hour and a shower! Crazy! But the beauty of this polish makes up for its fragility. Check these out:

Ahhhh! Oooohhhh! Check out that beautiful suede finish. YUM! I am also totally in love with the OPI pro wide brush. I didn't do ANY clean up on these nails. Nada. Zilch. That's amazing for me 'cos I'm completely messy at applying nail polish.

Anyway! See you on day six!

Thanks for reading
