A Few Essie Swatches

Hey everyone! Quick question for those who know: Does anyone know why TransDesign removed all their OPI's from their website? I know that a while back OPI and etailers had problems and OPI wanted to stop supply e-tailers from selling it, and TD said they were "liquidating" their OPI stock but then it continued to suppy the newer collections until now, where they removed even the link and all the polishes from their website. Also, where do you order your OPI's from? :) Anyways I've been wondering about that for the past few days :( Now I don't have any online beauty supply e-tailers that sell OPI to order from wahhhh! 

Here's some recent swatches I did before my ring finger nail broke :( The funny thing is that it was hanging by a small section (painful if I tried to tear/cut it) so then I used crazy glue and the tea bag fabric-material to keep it together but yesterday as I was closing my purse, it broke painlessly! I trimmed the rest of my nails down a bit so that it would be "even" or closer to even with my ring finger being a nubbin. :(

Essie Greenport - I received this from a swap, this actually came out when I was starting to buy nail polish but I passed on it. Afterwards, I totally regretted not getting this one (and Sag Harbor) earlier before it was all sold out and hard to find. Luckily I was able to swap for this from MUA! Greenport is a turquoise teal creme that has a nice jelly-reflective finish and it's shown in 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. I might even do a comparison post with Chanel Nouvelle Vague and China Glaze For Audrey, to see how it compares to those two to fill my curiousity.


Essie Hot Coco from their Winter 2010 Collection - It's a medium brown that's on the dusty gray side. This is shown in 2 coats and 1 layer of top coat. 

Essie Sag Harbor - Received this from a MUA swap and I'm so glad I finally got it after painfully regretting not getting this. It's on the dusty gray side of light sky blue and it's shown in 2 coats with 1 coat of top coat.

Hope you all enjoyed and happy polishing! :)

  4. rebecca: Thank you! I think it might because the prices are the same as TransDesign and I'm so glad that there's still an e-tailer with OPI because the OPI in my area are never as updated :) Even if it's not, at least it's a new place I can try! :D
