The One With the Leopard Manicure and OTD Nail Lacquer



Good morning polished world!  How are you on this fine Thursday??  Guys, tomorrow it's going to be 70 degrees and then Sunday we are supposed to get snow.  The weather is going crazy!!  I'm okay though with it snowing, I kind of like that first snow.  Sort of like how Lorelai Gilmore walks around town on the night of the first snow all happy as can be.  Talk to me again in February, I learn to hate the snow.

A few weeks ago, INM, the wonderful company behind my beloved Out the Door Top coat, sent me a package which contained 18, yes you read that right, 18 polishes.  They came right before Halloween so I decided to finish up my Halloween manicures before playing around with them.  I really wish I hadn't waited because the polishes are quite lovely.  I should probably swatch some of them, but I don't know if I have the patience to swatch 18 polishes.  Well, it's down to 14 now, I might have dropped some....oops.

Anyways, today I decided to do a leopard manicure using one of the OTD polish's I already owned alongside a new one.  Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • INM - Exposed
  • INM - Flapper
  • OPI - Champagne For Breakfast
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
Before I talk about the INM beauties, I need to take a moment to talk about OPI's Champagne for Breakfast.  This is a textured, you read that right, textured holo graphic glitter polish.  Beyond gorgeous!  It's truly like having a diamond on your nail!  It was such a pleasant surprise when I put it on!  I thought I was buying just another holo glitter topper (which you can never have too many of).

Exposed is one of my favorite nudes.  I received it a few years ago and didn't use it for a bottle shot because it separated a little bit.  Nothing that didn't come together when you shook it, but it left little visible swirls in the bottle.  It didn't affect the formula one bit.  Two coats and perfect coverage.  What I love about the INM polishes is how smoothly they apply.  



INM Flapper is such a gorgeous grey-brown polish.  I really need to use this one for a base of a manicure soon.  I did swatch on one nail before I decided upon doing the leopard manicure and it was almost a one coater.  I used two because it was slighty patchy.  Smooth application.

Awesome thing to know about the OTD Polishes is that they are five free!  My friend asked the other day and I contacted them because I wasn't 100% positive and they answered right away.

What do you think of the manicure?  Fan of the color combination?  Ever used INM polishes??

You can purchase INM polishes direct from their site or Nail Emporium.  They cost $3.00 which is a great price.

Thank you so much INM for sending me the surprise package.  You really made my day!!! <3 <3

Until next time, <3
