this is such a beautiful, warm, peachy pink color! applies smoothly and looks beautiful against my neutral skintone! definitely recommend it!
I find with OPI nail polishes it's good to read reviews, because while it's ok that some nail polish formulas for a particular color are hit-and-miss, just because OPI is about $10.00 Canadian does not make it error free! I've been disappointed in their formulas a lot, and then loved other ones to death!
So Cozu Melted in the Sun (pics in my photos and swatches) is a gorgeous color. The formula is a very nice consistency, a little thick but not overly so, and it has a very nice shiny finish. I put on two coats (no base coat), and one top coat. The color in the bottle is very representative of the color that comes out, and it was released with the Venis a Ongles collection.
I own it but I never reach for it... In fact I've never worn it. It just doesn't appeal to me as a polish colour. Maybe it's not bright enough, it's definitely a bit more on the neutral side with some metallic shimmer. It's very pretty but not for me.
This nail polish remind me of Nars Orgasm blush. Indoors it looks like a metallic peachy shade but in the sun or under spotlights it comes alive with lots and lots of tiny multi-coloured sparkles. It took me 3 coats to achieve bottle colour and it lasted for few days before it started chipping. IMO this shade is subtle enough to be worn at work but at the same time it is fun and unique...
This is one of my HG neutrals. It's very pretty and feminine. I love the sparkle that it has. The color is very flattering as well. It's sheer enough that you can do 2 coats and have it be subtle or go ahead and do 3 for more opacity and shimmer.
I'm not sure why this color has gotten such mediocre reviews! I have this on my nails right now, and it's absolutely beautiful (if I do say so myself lol). Also not sure why so many people are describing the shade using words like "coppery" and "bronzy" – in my opinion, it's neither. But then again, everyone's skin tone is different. To me anyway, 'Cozu-melted in the Sun' wears like a warm peachy-pink metallic shimmer w/pale pink and what looks like silver flecks (micro-glitter). This color reminds me a lot of Chanel Glossimer lipgloss in 'Pin-up.' It's a pretty unique color; perfect for the warmer months. It's one of those colors that looks quite different depending on the lighting. Admittedly, I wouldn't say this is a favorite or 'must-have' shade, mostly because I feel it's rather seasonal, and also, I just personally prefer creme formulas as opposed to shimmer/frost or metallic polishes. This one gleams and flashes like mad under incandescent light; the overall effect of which is beautiful and certainly well-suited for those occasional 'sparkly' mood moments we all tend to have :-)
For some reason, this particular color makes me feel that this is a nail polish version of MAC's Nymphette lipglass. Cozu-melted in the Sun is a shimmery and warm peachy pink color. I think the color is lovely and glamorous, but still subtle and wearable. In the bottle, it may look a bit too glittery, but it looks much more subtle on my nails, which I like a lot.
I don't find the formula to be streaky or difficult to apply. It went on my nails very smoothly. Since applying the polish is easy for me, it makes the whole process of painting my nails much quicker.
The formula also dries quite quickly, which really works in this polish's favor. This polish is a bit on the sheer side, so two coats isn't going to cut it. Adding more coats is very easy since the polish dries so quickly.
With a good top coat, this polish tends to last a few days (about 3-4, depending on what activities you do). I don't find it to be any better or worse than most of the OPI polishes I've purchased.
Overall, I really like this polish, though I may go through it quickly, since I need more coats for this to be opaque. The color is lovely and super-wearable for my skintone and it's great for the Summer. I would purchase this again!
I love this color in the bottle. My only problem is that I'm asian so I'm pale and yellow toned so it doesn't look great on my fingernails. But I love how it looks on my toe-nails--a pretty spring/summer color! I love the little glitters, and how they don't look overdone.
if you have light or really fair skin, i wouldnt recommend wearing this nail polish :/ it blends right into your skin tone and it makes the color look really dull. the color looks like copper with hint of sparkle, and I didnt really like how it looked on my nails.
I really like this color. This is how I thought "Princesses Rule" would look on me.
This is a peach-pink-coppery glittery shimmer. The reason why I love it so much is that the shade looks different, depending on the lighting. It can look either pink, peach, or copper or even a combination of those. I love that it's neutral enough to wear to the office, but also glittery enough to wear out. This color would be great for the beach.
I think this shade would look best on those with light skin and warm undertones such as myself.
The only weird thing about this color is that if you use more than one coat - or even just one thick coat - the color can look kind of mauve-y.
