OPI Bling Dynasty

So... I'm not big into V-day, but today is also Chinese New Year. So... Happy Chinese New Year! This is my Lunar New Year mani.

Bling Dynasty is a very deep yellow toned gold polish with gold shimmer micro-glitter. It's almost a mustard gold, if that makes any sense. This does not work for me at all. It's from this year's spring collection, Hong Kong. I figured with a name like that, this would totally work with the Asian skin tone, but guess not. =(

Two coats with Poshe. You can still see VNL, but it's not too bad. You could slap on another coat and you'd get full coverage. And those girls who say the Hong Kong polishes smell a wee bit different than other polishes? Yeah, I can sort of smell it too. But I can't really pinpoint it. It's not a bad smell, as nail polish doesn't smell like daisies to begin with, but the difference is definitely there. At least to me. Application itself was good though. No issues. Anyhow, I've put this up for swap. Not feelin' it.

So, um... I'm kinda at 187 followers, eh? Just... Wow. Thank you all. I'm a bit astounded at how many entries there are. A couple questions for you. How are the pics? Good? Is there any way you'd like me to improve them? How are the reviews? Are they helpful? Any extra info you'd like me to include? Er, that's more than a couple questions. Oh well. If you've got some feedback, would love to hear it.
