Felix Felicis

It's starting to feel just like fall in Montréal, that's one of the things I love most about this city is that it doesn't skip autumn. There are red and orange and yellow maple leaves all over, and Mont Royal looks absolutely beautiful, like it's out of a pretty movie. To go with the season I decided to put on one of my untrieds that I was very excited about. I bought OPI Rising Star last May, I remember because I had just gotten back to Calgary and I went to Cosmoprof and it was there on a discount rack, but none of the other Burlesque polishes were left. That's okay, I have a few others from the collection but I didn't manage to get my hands on this one while it was in stores, so you can imagine how excited I was. As soon as I put it on I knew it was meant to be, this polish is amazing! It glides on perfectly, as expected from OPI, and is like a warm copper toned gold part foil part glass fleck shimmer that lights up an entire room. 
Unfortunately, I may or may not have waited a little too long to finally take swatch pictures and there is extreme growth here. I was waiting for some sunshine to properly capture the GLOW of this polish but no such luck. This polish reminds me of Felix Felicis from Harry Potter. I think this is exactly what it would look like, some people imagine it as more of a yellow gold but I don't want my lucky potion being a dull yellow gold, I want this warm lively one! Maybe I should put it back on for my Organic Chem midterm on Wednesday...hmmm..

Isn't it beautiful? Thank you for reading guys, good luck on your midterms any fellow university students. I know I could use some Felix Felicis.. ;)
xoxo, Nikki
