Well, go figure!
What a find.. and it was in my stash all the time!
I was seeking something 'seasonal' to wear for Thanksgiving,
before all the Christmas glitz roared in...
And all I had to do was look!
This is a fine, deep cinnamon, in fact, it fits right in
with the 'oxblood' trend currently raging.
It's an opaque creme, applies like a dream,
and the color is sophisticated, neat and just lovely.
This will become a regular in my rotation..
cremes are dressy, and classy, work appropriate.
OPI knows how to make them the best!
I just have to remember to look in my stash
before I go shopping...
Did Someone Say Party? is a warm caramel color. It's not totally brown but with hepas of orange and yellow tone in it. It's a creme base formula and I think it looks great on olive skin. Probably a bit too warm for cool akin tone.
It's quite easy to apply. I put two coats and it dries really quickly and opaque. It's probably nothing special about this color. Just a safe one to wear anywhere and on all occasion. I don't think I'll wear this too often.
I picked this colour because it seemed like an odd nail polish colour. It initially reminded me of the 70s, and then coffee with cream, and also fall. It's a light brown with hints of orange. Smooth application, regular OPI wear (I wear the worst top coats and put my hands through so much, so my polish never stays on long anyway). Overall I like it because it's unexpected but a nice colour. I don't think I'd buy it, but I would wear it again.
I think I purchased this on sale at my salon during the summertime. I fully intended to wear this in the fall but in my winter excitement I spent most of the fall wearing blues, grays and berries. Well I went into my closet to pick out a color and saw it sitting there, unused. So I thought what the hell? Its def a fall color, and being winter its a bit out of place but I am a rebel. So I am attaching a picture of what it ended up looking like, please forgive my cuticles (its winter, I try) and my poor attempt at cleanup. continued >>
I really wanted this color just to have for days in the autumn when I just really wanted to feel like "autumn.".. This color is like the colors of the leaves, apples, cider, & donuts that remind me of living in Michigan. It is a color that I will probably never use all of, but knowing I have it on hand makes me feel good. I will definitely be utilizing this color a lot during October & days like Halloween (not b/c it freakishly Halloween-y or anything, but just in essence it captures this season).
I have a dark tan and this color doesn't really show up well. I thought it would be more orange. I think I will give this bottle to a teenage boarder I have here.....
The OPI website describes this colour as "cinnamon". In the OPI Try-It-On Studio, the colour is a bit more orange than the actual bottle, and it looks more brighter on the hand model's nails than on my own nails. Two coats each on my toes and fingers looks like what's in the bottle, which I would describe as an equal mix of brown, red, and orange. I really like the colour and name of this polish!
What is it?
Creme nailpolish in a mid-tone corally/orange brown from OPI's 2006 25th anniversary collection. Packaged in OPI's standard 15ml glass bottle with the pro-wide brush. Excellent quality as always with OPI.
How does it work for me?
Color works well with my skintone and gives enough contrast to see that there is polish on the nails. Still tame enough to not go into vampy territory. Stays on well without chipping or flaking. I like the pro-wide brush as it gives a smoother application than the old round brush.
Nice color and good quality as always with OPI, but would not repurchase as it's not that original.

A fun rich shade for fall but too warm for me and not as pretty as I'd hoped. More pumpkin pie than cinnamon. It does satisfy my need for rich fall creams but the color could be prettier.
I actually wanted this color so badly as I love fawn browns, caramels and leathery tans as I think they look rich and luxurious. I am thinking of a Coach purse here mentally. But instead this color is more of a reddish brown tan and doesn't remind me of anything else but a reddish pumpkin pie. Ok, this is a reddish pumpkin pie color! It's not cool like OPI and Apple Pie which is closer to my luxurious tan idea but more greenish.
Easy and light, the application was a typical OPI application, forgiving and easy. I made very few mistakes and it looked very professional. This has the Pro Wide brush which some hate but most love! I am used to it, no problems at all!
Very good wear, just a bit of some tip wear. No chips, no peels, very solid... and I did use my regulars (thin layer of Nailtek II Hydrating Formula, one of Nailtek II Foundation, topped with either Seche Vite or Poshe) but...I need this one to last as I am travelling and thus, I used Creative Stickey right before the color.
Everyone warned me that this color would be fug... it's not! It's not fug at all! It's not exactly perfect and maybe it will grow on me in its own right despite my tan M&M memory from 1978-82 (which were always my fave). I have pics, let me know if you need a looksy.
