I got SOPI What a Broad from my Secret Santa today… it is such a “ME” color. It’s a perfect, purple creme finish. I also got FingerPaints Twisted and have been dying to try it… what a great combination!!
I’m breaking my radio silence here on Tumblr for something I think is very special and important and all about me!
I just received the confirmation that I am officially a Novice Sister with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence!!!!
With that in mind, I will have to soon take on a Sister name and I’ve got a few ideas and I would love some feedback from you all!
Considering how tightly I will be grouping this in with my spiritual work as a Dionysian, I have been thinking of:
Sister Dee O'Nicesis* (Get it? I’ll be the nice sister?)
Sister Dionne Nysis
As someone who sometimes speaks without thinking (sticking my foot in my mouth and having to save myself from looking a fool), I have also been considering:
Sister Edith Crow* (as in ‘She eateth crow’)
Sister Edith Feet
Sister Edith Foot
Sister Edith Herwords*
Sister Edith Humble-Pie
And, to tie with my Craft name, Anthos, some other flowery options are:
Sister Rosie Outlook
Sister Pretty As A Flower*
*Bolded are my personal favourites
I won’t be using my drag name, Uma Gahd, with the Sisters as there was an important Sister, years ago, named Uma Gawd and I don’t want to cause any confusion or show any disrespect. (I had chosen and announced by drag name 2 days before I came across Sister Uma on the official SoPI webpage. It was a bitter sweet discovery.)
So, what do you guys think? What name would suit me best?
Color: What Aura Gonna Wear? (Sephora by OPI) Retail Price: $9.50 (USD)
First of all, I think my bottle label is wrong. The front says that this is top coat, and I assure you it’s not! In any case, What Aura Gonna Wear? is a hot pink creme from Sephora by OPI’s spring 2012 Bohemian Brights collection. I also like that this pink is just shy of being neon (in my book of colors, hot pink and neon pink are not synonymous!), so those of you who aren’t into this summer’s neon trend might prefer this pink to some of the brighter pinks that are scheduled for release this summer.
Once again, I am not disappointed with the Sephora by OPI creme formula. The consistency is perfect for creating a flawless manicure. I achieved bottle color in an easy two coats.
Like I’ve said before, I really like Sephora by OPI’s edgy choice to include such bright colors in a spring collection. It’s such a refreshing touch in a season that’s generally filled with pastels. Bravo!

These were inspired by esNAIL LA (where people like Kylie Jenner go to get their nails done!)
Heart tips are so cute, I think. LOL. Hopefully they’ll look more like proper hearts when I grow my nails out some more and make the tips pointier~
The pink base is three coats of OPI Bubble Bath. Since I’m impatient, you can just layer a thin layer of fast drying topcoat (like Seche Vite) between the layers to cut down drying time! The cream-colored hearts are Zoya Jacqueline and the black heart is Sally Hansen Black Out.
For the roses, we used Essie Come Here!, NOPI Selena, and Essie Fiji. The leaves are Essie’s Sew Psyched and Navigate Her.
The base for the gold accent nail is Sally Hansen Golden-I and there are about 3 or 4 coats of SOPI Only Gold for Me, on top.
I think this mani would look really feminine and cutesy if you just replaced the black floral heart with the cream ones. c:
