Red Dog Designs I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas over OPI Suede Gradient

I have so many awesome manis. Lately I'm all about the gradient with a glitter top coat. Like this one here.

In September, I came across Suzi Skiis the Pyrenees Suede in CVS and decided why not?! Well, I wore it, fell in love, and decided I needed all the suedes from OPI. Well, as of today, I have my very last one in the mail on its way to me. Not bad to complete a collection from 2008, all discontinued, in less than 5 months. I am a happy girl.

I started with a base of OPI We'll Always Have Paris Suede, which Jen, from My Nail Polish Obsession found for me, and made me squeal with joy! She is really amazing at finding my lemmings. Then with Lincoln Park After Dark  Suede, I did a gradient on the tips. Now here's the stunner. I added one amazing coat of Red Dog Designs I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.  Hippopotamus has gunmental, magenta, and holographic glitters. It's perfection. This was my number one choice from Red Dog's holiday collection (but Mele Kalikimaka is a close contender) but I couldn't figure out a base. This was perfect. Trust me, you want to enlarge these.

The OPI suedes are long discontinued, but Red Dog's shop is ready to open tonight, January 25th. Her glitters are absolutely amazing. See The Temptress here, Mele Kalikimaka here, Eight Crazy Nights here. Can you tell I love her polishes? I have way more to show you. Her shop opens TONIGHT! You can shop her store HERE. I personally have seven of her new ones I plan on getting, especially that Mardi Gras polish!
