NOTD: Peace & Love & OPI

Posted on: August 10, 2013

Peace & Love & OPI from their new San Francisco collection. The only 2 I bought from this collection was this one, duh, and Alcatraz Rocks, which it does! But back to P&L&O, this is a purple based duo-chrome that goes from purple to green to blue, depending on the light. I love a good duo-chrome and I think this is a good one.

I was trying to get a good picture of the effect of the duo-chrome and I hope you can see it. The formula on this was typical OPI formula, not too thick, not too thin. I like the brushes in OPI nail polish but sometimes I think they pick up a bit too much of the polish. Maybe because OPI was meant to be a salon polish at the start of their company. I think a nail tech would appreciate more polish on the brush so she can paint more than one nail before going back in for more. But I don’t paint my nails that way, so it bugs me, sometimes. It’s not a big deal just one of my quirks about their brush they seem to be so proud of and I know a lot of you like the brush as well, so I’ll be quiet about the brush. For now. πŸ˜‰
Peace &Love & OPI is a great polish and don’t be surprised to find this one in my Top 10 favorites one day. I give this 5/5 stars,🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 happily and with no reservations! You can purchase Peace & Love & OPI wherever OPI is sold. Which is pretty much every where it seems. I saw OPI at K-Mart, Shopko, and Big Lots. It used to be you had to go to a salon to buy OPI.
If you pick up Peace & Love & OPI please let me know what you think of it. Oh, and also Alcatraz Rocks is awesome and I don’t even like the sand finishes, but I love this one. NOTD post coming soon for Alcatraz Rocks!

I saw the SF Collection in Ulta yesterday and I thought the colors were gorgeous! I love the darker, fall-like colors! πŸ˜‰ This one reminds me a bit of Lucerne-taliny Look Marvelous from a couple years ago. Those photos of your neck o’ the woods are stunning!! Thanks for sharing them! β™₯


Thanks Lu! It seems to me that more and more OPI’s “new” collections are just past collections just tweaked a bit. I fell in love with Oeace, love and OPI as well as Alcatraz Rocks. Did you pick an up? I’m glad you like the photos, more coming. He has generously given permission to whoever wants to use them. Since this is where I live his photos are so much better than any I cold take! I wonder if he does nail pics? Hmmm?

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
