Sephora by OPI, Handpicked for Me, $9

Sephora’s Modern Flowers spring nailpolish collection includes many different shades that are all inspired by the flowers of the season. This particular one called Handpicked for Me is a really pretty and feminine nail color that’s perfect for spring. The color is a light pink/lilac with super tiny silver sparkles that adds a really cute and girly touch. In the picture I have two coats of Handpicked for Me, but you can also use one for a subtle (and super quick polish job) or 3 for an extra metallic look. This color is great because it incorporates a pastel with a metallic (from the sparkles) adding a really cool dimension to an otherwise plain pink polish. I am really loving pastel nailpolishes for warmer seasons, especially spring.

Final verdict:
Cost: $9, standard cost for Sephora by OPI polishes. There is also a mini set for $18 with 3 other colors from the collection and Handpicked by Me included.
Does it chip?: This polish doesn’t really chip quickly, I’ve had it on for almost a week now and the chipping is only limited to the top of my nails which is caused by my typing on the keyboard all day.
Repeat offender?: I am definitely into this color and want to get the mini set, there is an awesome green shade called Leaf Him at the Altar that looks amazing!


  1. I bought this nail polish last week and I love it!

  2. yay my lawn has made an apperance on sweet glow beauty blog! This color is really subtle and pretty I love their whole spring collection though esp. "go with the flower" which is an amazing bright pink/fuschia with a lot of sparkle power.
