OPI's Uh-oh Roll Down The Window is from the 2011 Touring America collection. It is a nice shade to transition from winter to spring & as it's still easy to find cheaply online I thought that I'd share my opinion on it. Uh-oh Roll Down The Window is a slightly dusty army green creme. This shade is perfect for this time of the year; I'm getting bored of wearing my vampies and neutrals, but am not quite ready for springy pastels.

Uh-oh Roll Down The Window has a winning formula; it's not too thick and gloopy, but is not thin and streaky either. This shade straddles the line between being a 1 coater and a 2 coater, so sometimes there'll be one or two thin spots with just the one coat on me, so I need that second coat to level everything out.

Here's my usual statement- nail polishes in general will last me anywhere between two to four days with only minimal wear. But as I'm a self powered wheelchair user I'm tough on my hands and am always catching my nails, so I can't really speak for how long lasting the formula is overall.

I love this shade! A very versatile green. Another user called it a neutral and I agree that this color goes with just about anything. It's an army green/safari green/olive green color, and the finish is what I would call a crelly, between a creme and a jelly, but closer to a creme.

The formulation is classic OPI formula for the most part. It lasts as long without chipping as other OPIs do for me. Not great but the best brand I've tried, and I've tried just about everything. This is opaque in two coats. I do not use a base coat before applying and I don't experience staining with this.

The only issue I had was streakiness/a tendency to pull. A second coat usually straightens everything out, but I sometimes need to use a third coat to make sure it looks completely even. I was surprised that this applies streakily considering the depth of the shade and that OPI usually applies well for me.

I almost took a lippie off for that but considering it's usually fine after a second coat, and I always apply two coats anyway, I decided not to. It lasts on the longer end of the scale (wear-time-wise) for me, especially for a crelly, and, like I said, despite the fact that it's dark-ish it doesn't stain, so those are both points in its favor.

I adore the color! Even if you're not typically a green polish fan you might like this. It's a much more sophisticated shade than, say, a grass green. I really consider this shade to be a neutral, whether in clothing or on the nails. I think this would look beautiful against any skin tone. I will be wearing this a lot this fall.

I own lots of polishes and like to try new ones so I rarely repurchase, but this is one I will buy again when I run out.

Kind of a strange review. I only gave it an average rating but yes I would buy it again. This is an awesome drab olive cream coverage. I love OPI but it can be a hit or miss on their formulas. This is one of them. The color is very opaque but you need to have a base coat on to make the formula spread evenly and you need 2 and in some cases three coats. Also without a base coat you may find that the color leaches into your nails leaving a nasty green stain that you may have trouble getting rid of. I find this trouble with any polish that has any kind of blue base.

Also I don't skip on base coats or top coats since they are the ones protecting my nail and taking the brunt of the day to day punishment. This polish no matter what I do I get 1 day out of a manicure. The next morning I will have at least one nail with a major chip in it. I've tried countless ways and it still chips. It maybe just my nails with the formula but I just want to put it out there in case someone is looking to get several days out of this color it may not happen. For me this is like the Chrome formula that they came out with Gwen S' line that is only a 24 hour wear color.

In spite of that I do love this color it's unique awesome for the fall and when I run out I will repurchase it again inspite of the flaws.

I love this color. Khaki green is such a great color anyway, green yet neutral and goes with quite alot of skintones and to me it's rather summery yet sophisticated. Uh Oh Roll Down The Window will look great on nails especially during the summer but is neutral, understed yet interesting to look very good and not out of place in the winter. I love it! : )

Sorry but this color is FUG! Awful in the bottle and worse on my PPP nails.
Just not for me, I guess.

Good for Halloween?

This polish have a weird name and a unique color. The khaki- green color reminds me of military uniform. The formula is great as OPI standard. But it didn't look best on my nail. Maybe if it's lighter it would be perfect.

Yes, it definitely works best with khaki/beige clothing and I put on a ring which has similar colours in it - looks great together. I've only tried it once so far and had trouble getting even coverage with two coats - I either need three or need to improve my brush skills! I don't think I will repurchase (tho may change my mind), as it's not really my usual colour and will only look good when I wear the right colour clothing. As far as green nail polish goes, this must be one of the best colours. Definitely suits my skin tone.
UPDATE - I've changed the 'buy again' from No to Yes! As soon as I appeared wearing this nail polish, I got compliments from friends. So I'm sure I'll continue to wear it.
