NOTD: OPI Swimsuit ... Nailed It! + Kleancolor Starry Purple

I was - as I often am - indecisive about what was going on my nails on Monday evening.  When I saw the Miss Universe pageant was actually on, I decided to reach for one of the colors from OPI's Miss Universe collection, and after a brief debate Swimsuit ... Nailed It! won.  This is already officially one of my favorite blues, and it has almost a chrome finish it's so metallic & shiny:

For the 2nd day I wanted to bling it up - I looked at the chunky silver Crown Me Already! from the same collection, the chunky silver but also holographic glitter Servin' Up Sparkle from one of my Serena Williams Glam Slam packs, but I finally went with this purple glitter from Kleancolor, with 3 different sizes of glitter in a clear base it's called Starry Purple - this is 2 coats on top of SNI, and most of the time it did look purple but in some lights & especially on camera it came out a bit on the pink side:

I've got a basic manicure tutorial that I filmed when I painted my nails with SNI - I'm going to attempt to get it edited tonight, but as often as my reach exceeds my grasp, not sure if that will actually happen LOL.  But it's coming!  I know I forgot a lot when I was recording too, so I'm going to fill in any blanks in the blog post.
Thanks for reading.
