Hello lovelies,

As a part of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month I've recreated my Retro Waves and Dots manicure in pink. I want to show my support to this cause and hopefully to inspire somebody to spread the word.

I took all my pink polishes from my stash to create this picture and even though you can't see most of them it was a great pink sea of polishes :)

And this is how you can do this manicure:

Hello lovelies,

I've had few questions around how close some polishes are to each other. So I've decided to do few comparison pictures to help you decide what polish you really need :)

Let's start with creme reds by OPI. I have compared three shades against Danke-Shiny Red from OPI Germany collection. I found Wocka Wocka to be the closest of all.

Next polish I wanted to compare was You Only Live Twice from the Skyfall collection. Meep-Meep-Meep seems to be the closest but in reality it has chunky glass flecks that You Only Live Twice does not have. Let Me Entertain You is closest with the finish but it has strong cool-toned fuchsia shade.

This time I've been searching my OPI stash for dupes of Casino Royale. I thought that No Spain No Gain will  be the same but it's lighter,

And finally, On Her Majesty's Secret Service is an exact dupe for Zoya's FeiFei. I find it a bit suspicious not just because they are exactly the same in colour but also in the distinctive and horrible smell.
