I just came upon this while searching for OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques polish.  Now I have to get ALL OF THESE and mani exactly the same! I agree it looks like a bed of rocks and goes so well together. Thanks Scrangie!!! <- she also does some really great reader requests and layering posts!

Thumb to pinkie: OPI You Don’t Know Jacques, Sephora By OPI Metro Chic, Rescue Beauty Lounge Grunge, OPI Parlez-Vous OPI, Sephora By OPI Call Your Mother.

The new OPI Avoplex Oil to Go! – no more carrying around leaky and fragile glass bottles and fearing leakage in designer purses! No spillage when applying while driving.

Just bought (albiet a few months late) “You Don’t Know Jacques” from the France Collection – a very interesting and strangely flattering grey/taupe. No shimmer. I’m so over that. But there’s a lighter and perhaps more flattering colour in the Sephora by OPI collection called Metro Chic.  (link thanks to All Laquered Up)

I’m really into cremes right now (also the MAC Cremesheen collection, of which I bought 3 ).  Loves from the South Beach Collection (and links and thanks to e-polishblog for colour swatches) :

Must haves:

  • Paint My Moji-Toes Red – creamy rose red
  • Party In My Cabana – pink!
  • Overexposed In South Beach – gorgeous in the swatch!!!!
  • OPI On Collins Ave – this was the first colour I reached for!

Maybes:

  • Suzi & The Lifeguard – an opaque whisper pink. I didn’t even notice this one as the collection was called “South Beach” and I was thinking festive, bright and bold colours. Look better on the nail than in the bottle. Don’t know with my yellow colouring though.
  • Bronzed To Perfection – looks ick, but maybe fab with a tan!
  • Sand In My Suit

Ok after going through the actual swatches, I think I just might need to buy the whole collection!!! (Or most of!)

I don’t think I can use these enough to justify buying a whole bottle, and I’ve looked at cheaper brand for similar colours, but OPI’s quality cannot be beat! Plus, at beauty supply stores I’m paying $5.99 vs. $9.99+ at retail stores.

I’m always on the lookout in Vancouver for gourmet food stores. I will go up and down the aisle and take a mental, written or pictoral note of ingredients/products I find interesting in case I need to use it in the future.

On my way to Quince as in my last post, I passed Mad About Food – didn’t go in, but the website looks interesting.

Also found online: http://www.epicureal.com

Walked into Quince today looking for something to drink. Found that they carry Vilux vinegars from France. Comes in passionfruit, fig, blueberry… must buy and try.

Founded over a century ago, Vilux d a new standard for high-quality French vinegars by setting the acidity 1% lower than traditional vinegars and focusing on flavors like raspberry and pear, and using only natural ingredients. Imported into Canada since the 1950’s, Vilux vinegars are prized by chefs for their superior taste and quality. Today, Vilux has expanded its product range to include special spices, fine flavored oils, and a delectable line of Dijon mustards.
