promotional samples ahead
I know, I know...I'm tardy. These are probably looong sold out by now, and you've probably seen these swatches 10,000 times...but here is my review anyway.
I love OPNL, so I only have glowing things to say about this polish...not the best for a review maybe? If you have tried OPNL before, you know what to expect from this polish already. I found this to be exactly what I expected formula-wise. I did need three coats, but that might just be my rabid hatred of sunshine-through-nails.
There are fine, delicate blue-green flakes throughout this pale turquoise holo. It is definitely a summertime/on a tropical beach sort of color. My only wish is that the flakes were a little more dispersed...or that the base were more sheer. I wanted to see those flakes all the time, not just as a flash of light here and there. I am going to have to give this a go when it isn't 80% humidity outside though, because I think that might help me get thinner layers and show off dem flakies a little more.
|even trying to catch flakies in the bottle was a challenge for me...|
curse you, Mother Nature!
Better late than never, right?! I am always happy to show off Dave's shiny things. If these are all sold out (and they probably are), don't fret! OPNL is also carried by LLarowe now, so you have a second chance to catch these. You can also come hang out with the rest of us loons in The Octosquad and keep up on the latest OPNL news/swaps/sales or just share a picture of your most recent Octo-mani.
