OPI NOTD - Feelin'-Hot-Hot-Hot!

First and foremost I want to thank everyone who has nominated me for an award recently (i.e., Kreativ Blogger and One Lovely Blog)! I won't be posting them because I've done both award tags recently, but still appreciate the nomination nonetheless. :) Thank you Charly, Natty, Lacy, Halifax and Emma!

I'm in the process of growing my nails out. Always after a few weeks of wearing nail polish my nails get extremely brittle and they begin to chip, flake and peel. At the moment I'm currently taking the supplement Biotin in hopes that this will help with my nail growth. I've only been taking it for just over a week so I will get back to you after a month and tell you how it's working out. I'm really hoping the Biotin doesn't make me break out (I heard it has made other people break out) because if I even get one pimple I'm done. I'm a bit obsessive-compulsive when it comes to skin care and I'd rather have good skin and bad nails than vice versa.

Sorry about the sloppy paint job. I really wanted to try out one of the nail colours I got in the mail (I got this and another nail polish I will be doing a NOTD on soon) but I had to head to work. It's such a pretty pink. It's from their South Beach collection, and I know it's fall/winter now, but I love brights. It goes on really smooth and I used two coats. I think I need to invest in a base and top coat in the near future. I've never really been into nail polishes though, so we shall see.

One thing I don't like about this nail polish is...THE NAME! Uggg... I have that cheesy "Feelin' Hot Hot Hot" song in my head now. And now you probably do too...LOL

OPI Feeling-Hot-Hot-Hot! - a bright pink creme shade

I only have one other OPI nail polish. I have OPI Gargantuan-Green-Grape and I just don't like the colour. I heard it was suppose to be a dupe for MAC'S Peppermint Patti and I really loved that shade, but never picked it up, but this is no where even close. It looks like I have fungus on my nails when I wear it. Now that's attractive. Does this colour work for any of you?

  6. Oooo! Love this color! I actually have "Hey! Get in lime!" coming in the mail which is similar to Green grape but not exactly the same...I think you'd like the "Hey!" color better...here is a comparison to MAC's peppermint patti

  13. Thanks for following! I've also been doing the Biotin thing, and my rules are the same, pimples = no more biotin. So far i've been okay. What dose are you taking? I'm only at 500mcg and I'm working my way to more, but I'm hoping that starting at a lower dose will stop the acne! xo em

  14. @Emily - I was taking 1000mg and went up to 3000mg because I was impatient. My nails grew SOOOO fast and are really hard. Unfortunately, I stopped taking it because I got one pimple. LOL I heard if you drink lots of water and take B12 vitamin it will help, so I was going to restart soon. I could have got a pimple from the antibiotics I was on or putting self-tanner on my face so I'm going to give it another shot. I was just doing too much at once!
