OPI Hollywood Blonde

Posted on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 | 15 Comments

Yay! it's finally December!!! Actually... I'm not sure if it's going to be a "yay" since December is always the most hectic month for me.  We will see....

I've been trying to only purchase wishlist/ lemming polishes but it isn't working.  The other day I saw OPI Hollywood Blonde on sale for $8.50. Hollywood Blonde isn't a lemming of mine...but I bought it anyway.  I'm actually really glad I did because I have fallen in love with it. It's a subtle polish that is extremely sheer. Yes, the nail line is visible but the glitter/ glass flecks draws your attention away from it. This is perfect for those days where you don't want "in your face" nails.  I'll probably stamp something over it later.

So....I have read reviews saying that OPI Princess Rule! is a pink version of Hollywood Blonde.  I've been lemming for Princess Rule! for a while now....do you guys think I should get it?  Hollywood Blonde is almost like Princess Rule.....do I need both?  YES I DO, and I love them both equally!


Here are a few items I bought on Black Friday:

1. One of the  most awesome hats ever! A DeLux Red Fox Pilot hat!  (I have a thing for hats, I have hats in the shape of a frog, a seal, and a bear).  Please note that the hat has a tail!  I think these hats would make great xmas presents!

You can get this hat or similiar hats here:
Punk.com (Ships to USA only, has kid sizes) <----most variety
KarmaLoop  (Ships internationally, has kid sizes)
The breckenridge hat company (Ships internationally, has kid sizes)
The great canadian gift company (Ships internationally)
berkeley hat (Ships to USA and Canada, has kid sizes)
drysdale and co (Ships internationally, has kid sizes)

***watch out for the shipping!!!! some of these sites ship internationally but the shipping charges are double the price of the hat =(

2. I bought a 75% wool coat from Suzy Shier for $21 (It is missing a button so I got an additional 10%...but the coat does come with extra buttons so it's not a problem).  This will be my cheap running errands coat =)

3.  I got these Ryder Lug Engineer Boots from Payless. They sell for $39.99 here!  I have a thing for engineer boots/ motocycle boots.  I actually have a very similiar pair in brown.  These boots look like they can kick someone's *ss and thus they will be my *ss kicking boots.


Note: Bornprettystore.com has a 10% off coupon code: OPENTENOFF  that is valid until Dec 31
or you can get a free small LED flashlight keychain with the code PK299 valid until unknown

**also, I have been listening to Glen Hansard's cover for Everytime by Britney Spears non stop! It sounds awesome. Have a listen here 


  1. Gorgeous nail polish color..I love it..^_^..

  2. :) I've never heard of this polish before but it is very pretty and looks nice on you!

    I love that hat~

  3. aww love the hat! I like the name of the polish, very interesting colour. I like the shimmer :)

  4. ohhh, you make me wanna get that polish so much!

    It seems the one I've been lookin for =D

  5. I like the boots (^_^)

    The grey colour I used is Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous from OPI Swiss collection. I talked about these nail polishes here: http://becksmakeupcorner.blogspot.com/2010/11/mias-little-corner-giveaway.html

  6. I think this polish would be great for layering.
    I just love the boots and the hat :-)

  7. If you're only going to have one of the two, I think Hollywood Blonde is a more versatile choice than Princesses Rule.

  8. I tried to get these boots at the payless on granville after I saw them here but they don't have it! I'm afraid of getting them online and being the wrong size for me!
    Oh and I love Glen Hansard too!!!

  9. I'd skip the polish, but that hat...I LOVE it. I'm too old to wear it, but I'd rock it if I were a younger woman. So cute!

  10. I have a bottle of Hollywood Blonde but it's almost gone and I can't find any more. I am worried it's been discontinued. Where did you find yours? I live in Langley and was downtown today... wish I'd known you found it somewhere before I left today!

    And Elizabeth - I am 52 and wear it. It's a very subtle polish.

  11. LOVE the nails, great color, neutral with an edge to it!
    And great stuff you bought!


  12. @-AnGiEpInK-: thanks! I have fallen in love with this color! =)

    @Rachel Marie: I also havne't heard much about this polish before...but when I saw it I just had to have it

    @Danielle: I love the shimmer in the polish too. I haven't worn my hat yet..I think I'm afraid to wear it outside...haha

    @♥ Pixie D ♥: get it if you find it!! on ebay it sells for about $15 I think. it's the perfect office type of polish..I also got the pink version OPI Princess rule =)

    @Becky : thank becky! I seem to be in love with that style of boots. I didn't really like anything thing from the swiss collection but now I think I will go buy Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, its very pretty and perfect for winter

    @nail crazy: you are right! I'm going to try some layering later and see what I come up with

  13. @karen d: well i caved and ended up getting princess rule....I guess I really need both. but I do like hollywood blonde much more

    @Fer (The Nail Experiment): i guess since it's xmas it's selling very fast because everyone wants to get gifts for other. maybe you could try other stores?

    @~Elizabeth aka Lacquered Lizard: you can get it for your son!! and share it with him =)

    @Sandy Montgomery : Hey sandy, I actually went into a random nail salon dt and looked around and found it. that's pretty much how I find my polishes. Unfortunately they only had one bottle left so I can't go back and get you a second one. You could try ebay.ca. ebay.com has cheaper prices but I'm not sure if it ships to canada. one alternative is OPI princess rule, it's almost the same but with a slight pink base to it

    @ABIGAIL NY: aww thanks for such a nice comment. i think you described it perfectly, neutral with an edge to it

  14. I love hollywood blonde glad that it's in my collection :) It's such an elegant polish!

  15. @rmcandlelight (nailsbeautiqued): I think I need to get a back up of the hollywood blondes =) I agree it is a very elegant polish.
