Originally I intended to post this last Friday (Sept 21st), but my family emergency meant that that didn't happen. Ah well! I decided to just leave my original text so please forgive the fact that I wrote this over a week ago.
So, instead of my regular Football Friday post, tonight is a special nail post! My five year anniversary is tomorrow, September 22 and we're celebrating by going out to dinner tonight at Canlis-- a very fancy and expensive restaurant in Seattle. Conveniently, this is also UW's bye week, meaning they don't play this week, so there's no football game to get ready for.
I wanted to go for a fall flavored manicure, given the time of year. So I got OPI German-icure by OPI, which is a gorgeous blacked red-brown shimmer from this fall's OPI German Collection. German-icure went on very smoothly but was a little sheer in the first coat. However, two coats was enough to get opaque coverage. This polish shifts a bit depending on the light-- sometimes it looks more brown and in others it definitely looks more red. The shimmer is magnificent. I have used two coats here and no top coat.

Us in all of our anniversary finery!
And with my jewelry!
German-icure is such an awesome fall polish-- I love it! This is a stunning polish and looks amazing in person. Run out and grab it!
