Light it up

I’ve found the solution for my lighting problem in my new apartment—figuring out my camera settings to make my photos more flash-friendly, and a lightbox! I’ve since taken a looooot of photos with the lightbox (but have yet to post them because I’ve been lazy as sin), and it’s pretty fantastic.

My first lightbox photos needed to be blingy and glittery! This is OPI DS Titanium. If memory serves me, this was two thin coats—I need to start writing this stuff down, because I have the memory of a goldfish with severe trauma to their limbic system.

The base is translucent and gray-tinted, with some slight shimmer, and would take roughly a billion coats to get full coverage with. You’ve gotta layer this girl. This was over one coat of Revlon Chic, a blue-leaning slate gray.


Titanium is beautiful and incredibly complex. There’s just a touch of silvery shimmer, tiny shifting round glitters, and small shifting square and hex glitters.


The polish is absolutely packed with glitter, but I don’t recall having any problems with application. And if I’m not mistaken, it dried pretty quickly as well. But my point is, there’s absolutely no dabbing of any kind required with this; a painting motion will serve you just fine.

This was my first designer series OPI that I’ve ever worn! They were all very pretty, but none of them really thrilled me except for Titanium. What can I say, I’m a sucker for anything color-shifting. And they all apparently have diamond dust in them? Neat.

Thanks for stopping by!
