Long Time Lemming Turned Reality~ Metro Chic

Sephora by OPI's Metro Chic has created such a buzz in the beauty world, and I finally got my hands on it!!! (Or more, I finally broke down and paid $9 for it!)

I'm glad I did though, because it is a must have color for every nail polish lover and every crazy color lover, and I'm both!

What a fantastic color!!! Mushroomy brownish taupe gray with a hint of lilac.  I love it.  Sephora by OPI has a lot of great grayed out colors that I really want to get my hands on.  Why are they so expensiveeee?!?!  I did two coats, but it's a little sparse towards the cuticle.  Too lazy to do the third coat, though!!

I also bought a new lipgloss, NYC Liquid Lip Shine in 552 Cappuccino

Over Maybelline's Color Sensational "Warm Me Up"

Over Revlon's Matte Lipstick in "Nude Attitude"

Great lipgloss.  A little glossy, not too sticky but not too watery, shimmery, smells amazing, semi long lasting.  I love these lip glosses!  I now have 4, but will probably own the whole line someday.  Only $2.99 a piece! =)

Also, I went to a casual party last night with my friend Alison, here are some pictures of my makeup!

Alison and I out and about! =)

I hope everyone is have a lovely weekend, and if you don't own Metro Chic yet, I highly recommend you RUN to the nearest Sephora and buy 3 bottles. =)  Backup worthy.


  1. love metro chic, it's my go-to color, i'm actually halfway thru my first, must get a second one!

  2. Love that colour, I love that it is so unusual. You are looking really pretty in thes pics as well!

  3. I love this colour! I think I have every taupe-ish shroom colour out there and if not it's not for lack of trying!

    I don't mind paying $9. Considering normal OPI retails for around $20 here, $9 is peanuts. Even though I only buy OPI over the internet for a fraction of that price. It's not nutso expensive to me because most brands are the same or more.

  4. It looks pretty - totally worth the $9!! :)

  5. hey kelsea!! im so glad to see metro chic popping up again! It is one of my all-time favs and I'm so glad you love it! :)

  6. I remember when I was SO EXCITED to get Metro Chic...and since then I've only worn it once, on the day of my graduation from college. Maybe I should pull the little beauty back out. It looks naaaaiiiice on you.

  7. Metro chic is such a gorgeous color :-)
