Nicole by OPI Fresh Squeezed

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month, so this post is dedicated to the cause, and the furry friends that are so near and dear to my heart.  The ASPCA is a national non-profit and the first humane society established in the US, and orange is their color.  I only have one orange in my stash at present, usually reserved for the years my NBA team makes the playoffs, but this month presents another lovely opportunity (and it's questionable if I'll be wearing it for my team at this point....)  This post is pic heavy with some cat spam at the end.  You have been warned.

Nicole by OPI Fresh Squeezed is kind of a red-orange, made so by fuschia sparkles the camera has a hard time capturing.  The third pic is as close as I could get.  If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can very faintly see them.  It's a lovely, vibrant color with orange, silver, and gold sparkles, as well.  The brush is on the small side, but the formula's fantastic, albeit a little sheer-- this is three coats with a slightly visible nail line, so if that bothers you, steer clear.




This post wouldn't be complete without appearances by my little furbabies, so here they are. :)  This one is my baby Beau, a dapper one-year-old little boy C and I adopted from our local Humane Society (where I volunteer; I fell in love with this little guy's sweet and playful nature one afternoon, and the rest is history!)



This is my little girl cat, Sally.  She won't look at the camera for anything and growled at me every time I turned it on her, so this is the best pic I could get out of her. lol.  She is seven.  C adopted her from one of his coworkers a month after we were married.  She's feisty and independent, but so sweet and lovey when she wants to be.



Here are links to the ASPCA and my local humane society.  If you're interested, please take a moment to check them out!

    1. Thank you! :) I'm not big on NOPI simply because of their celeb-inspired bent. The formula could be a little more pigmented, but I don't own enough NOPIs to say that's how they all are. And, I probably never will. :)

    Beau and Sally are adorable. I have a tuxedo cat and he's such a drama queen haha.

    1. Ali, that's awesome! Volunteering's the best, isn't it? :) I'd have at least six if I brought home even just the ones that really tugged at my heart. My Baby Beau isn't much for drama but he is seriously insolent. He's lucky he's so darned cute. ;)
