Play it Again Saturday

Hello gentle readers.

Happy weekend. I hope that you are going to get some fun, some sun, some relaxation. I'm home alone, today. My husband went up to Bullhead City to drive his brother up to Vegas to have outpatient surgery and, since he has the day off, our son decided to tag along so it's just me and the hairbags. All alone.


Today's Play it Again feature polish is OPI Friar, Friar Pants on fire. This is a classic OPI shade. This warm, slightly orange-y red shimmer has a beautiful, subtle pink flash. It looks simple in photographs, in person it is more complex, richer and much prettier. I wore this with random accent nails topped with China Glaze I Herd That. I wanted a nice, warm, sparkly glitter to wear with it. What I ended up with was Christmas nails. Christmas in Summer.

Why not? I love Christmas. Even in Summer.

I like this polish. It has been hanging out with me for... five? Six? years, yet I've only worn it a couple of times. It was nice to take it out for another airing.

Do you own OPI Friar, Friar Pants on Fire? If you would like it, I think it is core line. If not, it is still around, here and there. I've seen it on Amazon, you should be able to find it on E-Bay or in random stores that sell OPI.

I'm going to get another cup of coffee and finish watching The Descendants. Good flick. I'm enjoying it.

Thanks for dropping in and have a fantastic weekend.


  1. Beautiful colours :)

  2. I'm actually wearing this on my toes right now, but it is borrowed from my mom. It is crazy expensive online however.

  3. Is it really? Huh. I need to do better research. I thought that it wasn't all that spendy. Thank you for letting me know. :)

  4. Thank you. :)

  5. stunning rich colors! i found myself in a cosmo prof today with my daughter...staring at row after row after row of China Glaze. And I was so mesmerized I couldn't even select one! CRAZY WOMAN! I only left with a new bottle of some stuff to help with soft, peeling nails. UGH. I just don't know what I want next. Maybe I should just wait for September and pick a pretty color for fall. 

  6. You can wear Fall colours, now. Screw the seasons, just wear what you like. :D 

    When I am overwhelmed by selection, I close my eyes, grab one at random. Doesn't matter if I like it or not, I rarely keep the one I grab but it kind of resets my brain and I can make choices, then. :)

  7. I looooove I Herd That, too. It's so golden and sparkly. :D

  8. As you can see, I am a week behind the times here in the blog world!  I refuse to delete to catch up-I may miss something important!! HAHA! I love this red-it's gorgeous!  I may need to look this one up!

  9. That is one big reason I have Disqus, I don't miss any comments, even those on older posts. I hate missing comments and I like to respond to as many as I possibly can. I feel you on getting behind. I try to keep caught up but some days it isn't possible. Google Reader is a boon to me. I can speed read posts as I scroll then go back, go to blogs I want to comment on then move on. 

    This is a beautiful polish, it would look fab on you. :D
