Deserving Diva

SOOOO happy it's Thursday!!  Good morning, dear readers.  It is my Friday - WOOT!!  The weekend my hubs and our besties have been dreaming about is finally HERE!  And not a moment too soon, either.  It's been a hectic/crazy/stoopid week at work, too.  The kicker?  My co-worker and I are BOTH out tomorrow - luckily we have a great medical assistant intern who will be here to cover for us.  ANYway...on to see the pretties that you came for!

This was one of the colors I was super excited about trying from my giveaway loot.  I never owned any OPI before this but I can tell you now that I'll probably be adding more of them to my (ever expanding) collection!
Meet OPI Diva of Geneva from the Swiss collection.  This is a gorgeous wine shimmer that looks amazing in bright direct sun and indoors.  This picture was taken outdoors in late afternoon sun. 
Outdoors, shade.  So pretty.  This color has so much depth - every time I looked at it, it seemed like a different color.  Diva of Geneva applied very well.  Complete coverage in 2 coats. 
In my opinion, this one definitely deserves Diva status!  I got a ton of compliments no this shade.  It's so gorgeous that it didn't need the addition of nail art or stamping.
Though I love the outdoor pics, the color of Diva really comes out with a flash.  It glows!  I know this is a "Winter" color, but you can bet this shade will get lovin' from me year-round.  There are 3 *must* owns in this collection: Diva of Geneva, Ski Teal We Drop and Yodel Me on My Cell.  The other colors are nice, but they're not Diva-worthy.  LOL

You might not hear from me again until Monday.  I take off tomorrow with the BFF and while we'll have access to the interwebs, I doubt I'll have the time (or the desire) to post while we're gone.  So, until next time, dear readers!

One more thing!  I sent out emails to all the people who signed up for the Recipe Exchange last night.  If you signed up but didn't receive an email, please let me know.  I had 17 participants - an awesome collection of people for my first exchange.  I can't wait to do it again some time in the future.

Are you wearing this polish for your getaway weekend? Hope you all have tons of fun.

Well, now that you are indoctrinated into OPI, you won't be able to NOT get any more! 'Mark My Words!!!'

I'm very excited for you and your BFF. They are so important for our hearts and our sanity. I hope you ALL have one fabulous time!

wow, this polish really deserves diva in it's name =). I have a polish from Gosh called Diva, but compared to this one mine doesn't deserve to be diva.
