These saved my manicure...

I do not like the little bottles that OPI sometimes releases, it annoys me that they are so small and sometimes they only release colors in these small bottles.

These little bottles are so annoying if it is a color you REALLY like, then you have to go around town buying collections of  little bottles of a color you love just to get enough to have for future use. This sucks!

So the fact that I dislike these little bottles is not a shock, but for once I can say that these little bottles saved my sanity and my manicure.

This is OPI "OPI Ink" and Orly's "Top 2 Bottom" base coat and top coat.

While I was on my way to Indiana, these little bottles escorted me in my carry on baggage and saved my manicure for a week.  After I arrived, I bought some remover at the local CVS and a small pack of cotton balls and went to work removing my old manicure that had been murdered during travel. 

Luggage and manicures do not go together :)

After 4 days.....this is 3 coats of OPI, over the Orly, and then a coat of the Orly on top.  It took forever to dry (I've been spoiled by Seche Vite), but it did the trick!!

The nick on the ring finger, happened on the trip home while I was grasping for my lap top crammed under the seat in front of me.  I swear they add a new row of seats to planes every time I fly...I mean REALLY???

After 4 days this is awesome, I loved OPI Ink, it is a great deep purple shimmer with a blue flash, so pretty! and I got a ton of compliments on the color.

I'm just happy I didn't break a nail while I was on my trip.  Whenever I travel I ALWAYS break a nail, never fails, the only difference this time is that I have been taking 1,000 mg of BIOTIN everyday and I am telling you that crap works.

So here is my plea to OPI, you should make little bottles of all the colors in your core line. Yes, I am now a believer..LOL..... because when you travel these little bottles fit perfect in the TSA recommended toiletry bags and they make travel easier for those of us who are "manicure impaired"..LMAO!!!

Now I'm off to one of my favorite Beauty Supplies, where they have little mini bottles of Seche Vite....gotta prepare for the next trip :)
Pin It!

I never thought about getting mini's for travel. Ink is a fabulous purple. (Let me know if you need a full size bottle. I think I can find one)
