|Sephora By OPI: Charge It!|
Thank goodness for accessories, shoes and nails. Nails have always been where I do most of my color experimenting. My outfit might be all black, but my nails always rock an offbeat color. Most of the time its a various shade of purple. I've been known to wear orange, yellow, green or blue, all colors that I could never wear as part of my uniform for work.
On my most recent mani/pedi at San Francisco's Beauty Company, I decided to try out my brand new Sephora by OPI shade, "Charge It!" It's described on the website as being a metallic 24K gold color. Indeed it is. I can relive my young dreams of becoming a Solid Gold dancer by rocking the bright, metallic hue on my nails. For this color, my nail technician recommended that I have my nails square shaped instead of the round shape I always opt for. She pointed out to me that the round shape and the metallic color would make my nails "too old" looking. Her recommendation was a good one. The square shape really adds some funk to this fun, metal color.
Charge It! doesn't have to be a polish color saved just for a themed party or New Years Eve occasion. The 24K gold is adding plenty of bling to my otherwise normally gloomy January days at the office.
