Shorts Story; Shorts Blog

Rather than beginning this post with the obligatory excuse for why I've been so M.I.A., I'll just say that if you follow me on Twitter you probably know that I've had a lot going on and you may also have some insight into why I wasn't able to post last week.

But seriously, on to the mindless stuff.
I have a pretty nailpolish to show you. Pretty, that is, if you're into almost sickeningly feminine, vibrant, medium Barbie-pinks. Naturally, it was love at first application for me.

The specs:

Name & Brand: Shorts Story; OPI
Application: Smooth, easy to work with
Longevity: Decent, average
Shade: This is more subjective, of course, but in my humble opinion it is nothing short of fabulous

I had heard horror stories about the application of this nailpolish prior to my purchasing it, but I'm pleased to report that was not my experience with the polish at all - and I'm rather picky when it comes to nailpolish formulations. Mostly because I make a terrible manicurist. No joke, I could definitely benefit from taking some sort of remedial nailpolish class. 'Nailpolish Application for Dummies' or something of the like.

For reference, the above photos were taken with flash photography (at night, as per usual) and I've applied two coats. Underneath I have applied my favourite base:

And then I finished it all off with favourite topcoat:

Recently I've discovered another basecoat/topcoat that I've been loving as well. But more on that later....

What do you think of OPI's Shorts Story? Is it a colour you'd dare to wear? Also, what is your favourite topcoat and basecoat?

  1. I own this polish but have worn it maybe once or twice before. This post inspired me to apply it next time I need to repaint my nails. :) It looks so pretty on you.

  2. Thanks Maria! For me this is one of the polishes that I'd reach for super often if I didn't feel so bad about neglecting the other polishes in my collection, haha.

    Much love to you! xo

  3. Oh wow, that is beautiful Laura. I may have to add this to my wishlist! Question: what shade are you in foundation? The only reason I ask is because it might look gorgeous on you if you have slightly darker skintone than me(?) I feel like if I'm too pale for this it won't be as flattering on me as it is on you! xxx

  4. Naw I'm pretty pale! NW20ish! I agree that it would look beautiful on darker skintones but I think it can also work for us pale-gals! Get it, get it! haha such an enabler. xoxo
