I love this color. My neighbor showed it to me last fall and said it was a great color to go from fall right through the Holidays. It's a nice dep red, with a bronzy, goldy hue to it. Not too cool or warm, a great color on the tooties too!
As with all OPI polishes the application is a bit of a pain for me, I find the brush too slender and therefore cannot get the coverage in the time required before the varnish starts to dry, apparently they design the brushes not to 'fan out' upon application, this fanning can have its advantages as it lets you control coverage faster, I also find the brush a little long, the general feeling is that the longer the brush the better the application but again this notion passes me by, the best designed nail polish brushes come from Nails Inc - I digress somewhat...the colour of 'Waitress' after three coats is beautiful and very dramatic, it oozes quality, the Christmas bauble analogy is spot-on, a glass like finish with a subtle but sophisticated shimmer. I recommend a brisk buffing and a good base coat first as this polish can show up any ridges or unevenness terribly, but if the prep' is done the result is nails that look a million dollars!.
Many reviewers describe I'm Not Really a Waitress as "candy apple red," and I think that's the best description. It has a gleam that comes from a pretty microshimmer. Reviewer racket11 describes it nicely when she writes it has a "mirror-like finish which is so like those shiny ornament balls you hang on the tree." It's color reminds me of those red glass ornaments as well. The longevity (wear) is excellent, like most of OPI's polishes. I think this is a very pretty, festive red, particularly for a pedicure. While I'm Not Really a Waitress may be considered a "universal" or "perfect" red in that it tends to look good on everyone, it is *not* a red I would wear regularly on my tips. It is too "festive" looking; I tend to go with vamp or neutrals. That's just a personal preference, not a criticism!
Love it! Love it! Love it! Love it! "In Style" magazine says this is the universally wearable red nail polish, and they're not lying! This shade is slightly darker than blood red, with a hint of metalic undertones. I wear it on my toes year-round, and it never fails to disappoint. Plus, OPI polishes are great quality...they apply smoothly and stay on for ages without chipping.
Friends have designated INRAW as the "universal high femme pedicure color," and I'd be hard-pressed to disagree. Before knowing anything about OPI or what shades were popular, this one positively leapt off of the manicurist's shelf at me and has been a staple ever since. Even when I go to a nail salon hoping to try something new, I say "ooh look, pretty!" and end up grabbing the same damn bottle I already have at home. Guess I'm just predictable that way. What can I say that hasn't already been said... deep candy apple/wine, smooth sexy color, good quality, blah blah. Just to be a bitch, I knocked off one lippie (but just barely) because my bottle is a little too syrupy and viscous for easy application. But I'm just splitting hairs. INRAW owns my toes.
A gorgeous, opulent, candy-apple red. It looks great against my paler than pale feet. The quality is also excellent. On my toes, it lasted for several weeks without chipping.
This is the perfect Christmas color. It has a mirror-like finish which is so like those shiny ornament balls you hang on the tree.
I know this is the best selling OPI color there is. It's a pretty, dark, candy apple red pearlescent color. I use this on my toes, and when the holidays/formal attire is called for. It looks great on all skintones, I would buy again!
I'm contantly buying nail polish. And i have to say this is the perfect red if you like a more blue to your red then orange. It's the perfect red. But all that aside i love most of opi's nail polish I'll switch between using opi and crative nail desings nail. I also love the names of opi's nail polishes too they're so cute!
I bought this in a mini, and I love the color! It is pretty chip resistant. I also have a dead ringer for this in Sinful Burgandy Apple at a 1/4 of the price of OPI.
