OPI You're so Vain-illa + Vanilla Flower

With vanilla in the name, and being the absolute perfect vanilla shade, I wanted to try my hand at a vanilla flower using OPI You're so Vain-illa.

For my first shot, I was fairly pleased with the result.

I used Zoya Kieko as the purple base behind my flower, and shaded the flower with You're so Vain-illa, Zoya Darcy, and white and black. The star of the show, the OPI, is the base on my outer nails, plus China Glaze Mahogany Magic mixed to a few different shades with black. The leaves are done with Milani Showy Sea-Green and China Glaze Holly-Day. I finished everything off with a couple coats of Ciate Mattnificent.

I received this OPI polish from KKCenterHk ($8.80 USD if you're interested in picking it up here - if you use my coupon code NLL you'll get 10% off). The same holds true from the last OPI polish I got from them (see here); I believe it is a legit OPI, not a fake. The consistency was nice and smooth, it applied really well. I only needed two coats for opacity, and I absolutely love the color!
