The boyfraan being the awesome human being that he is got me a gift certificate to my favorite nail salon Royal Essence. I do my own nails obviously but I still love and appreciate an excellent pedicure! They go all the way in service, just check out their site if you're around town. This was also an excellent chance to do some dusty hunting. I quickly found out that they refuse to sell open/used polishes but they had a locked case of treasures including OPI Designer Series! Their other polishes were so unorganized that I just mainly focused on the DS's. I left with 4 uber lemmings including DS Royal, a lovely shade of sparkly purple. I first swatched Royal on my nail wheel as I am reorganizing my stash and noticed it was pretty sheer. So I took out a random warm toned purple polish from Hot Topic and did two thin layers before adding another two layers of Royal.
