#NOTD: Carrie Underwood for Nicole by OPI & a Nail Polish Display!

Nope it's not Mani Monday but I had to share my #NOTD! 

I've been wanting to try the Carrie Underwood for OPI so I picked up a super pink color called "Carnival Cotton Candy" for obvious reasons...I looooove cotton candy. 

 The pink color pretty much matches the bottle. Maybe a bit more vibrant in person.
I did about 3 coats just to make sure they were all even. And a topcoat improved the shine. 
I think next time I will try not to rush and do two coats with a matte topcoat and maybe even a navy half moon.

Overall, other than being more brighter on the nails, this is a pretty perfect Barbie pink that I was hoping for! It's $6.99 at Ulta right now-->Carrie Underwood Nicole by OPI

As for the Nail Polish Display. I realized that I need a better way to display my nail polish collection. Since I moved, I ended up throwing them all in a bag and had to search each time I need a new mani. 

I was not able to find any spice racks at Marshalls so I finally gave up...and came across a perfect acrylic display on Amazon. Check it out.

For some reason it never occurred to purchase one of these before. I thought they would be expensive but it really isn't that bad. I got this one which holds "60" polishes, but more like 60ish for me.
It's only $13 (decreased in price this week!) Buy it here-->Amazon Acrylic 5 step Nail Polish Organizer.
I'm going to need another one stat.

Pretty cool right?
I think I may have a Butter London obsession.
 *Note I placed that brand diagonal so I can fit more in. They also fit just fine facing forward.

Have you tried any of the Carrie Underwood polishes?
How do you display your collection?


  1. I love this color and who could resist cotton candy?! Oh my gosh, I have been looking for a polish organizer - what a find!! On my way to order one, I need it so badly! :)


    1. Yes and I love Amazon Prime-free shipping and you get it so quick! Best thing ever.

  2. I love the color you chose! I might have to try that one. I bought Goodbye Shoes and really loved it. Funny though, the polish smelled really bad which is kind of weird! Kind of a garbage and vinegar smell. And great idea on organizing your nail polishes! I keep them in a few different baskets - basically wherever they can fit since I have so many!

  3. Such a great color, and that rack is awesome!
