For my manicure today I’m wearing OPI Hopelessly in Love, which captures my exact mood because I AM ENGAGED!!!
I cannot stop smiling, gushing, and staring at my finger because I cannot believe it’s real, that I’m going to be married to the man I love. That I get to spend the rest of my life with someone who makes me so incredibly happy and still loves and accepts me flaws and all, at the highest of my highs and lowest of my lows. It’s been a week and it still feels like a dream, like I’m in some kind of fog. To say I’m excited is an understatement, literally I have been on cloud 9 and so that I don’t sound like I’m being incredibly dramatic (which I probably am), I need to hear from ladies who are married and/ or engaged that this is how it was for you too!!
Because I am hopelessly in love, with my fiancé (ZOMG I can say that now 🙂 eeks) and my ring (literally it is the prettiest thing I have ever seen in my life, this picture does not do it justice in the least), I decided it would be perfect to use a polish for my manicure that would capture that. OPI Hopelessly in Love, HIL, is part of the Soft Shades Collection, colors that are very soft, delicate and feminine in nature and perfect for brides and proms. HIL is a sheer pale peachy pink polish with a crème finish. It almost leans a little beige and while it is a very beautiful color, I think it looks a little off for my complexion. I like peachy colors but I think I’ve come to accept that it has to be a certain hue for it to work with my complexion. HIL wasn’t very easy to apply either; the polish is sheer so it required more than two coats, I used three, however the formula is so thick that it globbed in certain places and was difficult to smooth. To HIL’s credit, there was no streakiness however this polish was so thick that building was a bit of a pain and I can still see the whites of my fingertips which is a no-go for me.
Although I’m not completely sold on this polish, I can’t even look at my nails and be mad because I see the ring on my finger and I’m all smiles. I fall in love all over again. Right now, I am the happiest girl in the world!
