NOTD: A Galaxy Away (Extravagance - OPI)

The sun's out and it's still feeling like summer at the moment. So when it comes to nail varnish, you're probably thinking about pastel hues and soft shades. But not The Fashion Freak. All I seem to be painting my nails with is dark purples and metallics.

I was sent this mini OPI bottle in my June Glossy Box (a while ago I know!) but unfortunately, it didn't seem to have a name. However, after a quick bit of research, I found that it is called Extravagance and is originally from the OPI Designer collection from a few years ago.

The polish itself is a deep plum purple (glossy but not metallic) and it is accompanied by what seems to be tiny flecks of pink, silver and gold sparkles. Layered together, the sparkles create a gorgeous, almost 3D, look which reminds me slightly of the galaxy-style images I see bobbing about on tumblr and on many a Topshop tee these days.

It applies beautifully and it doesn't seem to have chipped as quickly as my other OPI polishes tend to do.

What do you think? Did you get the polish in your Glossy Box?

Ahh I wish I was suscribed to Glossy Box, I noticed a HD brow palette was included in too!

The opi nail polish is gorge! If you like the 3D effect, you'd like 'My Private Jet'. xo
