OPI's La Paz-itively Hot Matte is a hot, HOT matte pink. I have a few hot pinks but saw some swatches of this so I just had to get it. I ordered mine off eBay and was so excited for it to arrive!

I have OPI's You Don't Know Jacques Suede which is a very similar formula to the Mattes, so I knew what to expect. I actually love how it dries almost instantly, and it was …

Polishes - OPI - Designer Series - DS Opulence

What a lovely glittery mauve - When I bought DS Opulence, I purchased it together with a bunch of other polishes, but was most excited to wear this one!

To my disappointment, this colour does NOT suit my olive complexion as it completely washes me out. I am not into nudes or subtle colours and I did not expect DS Opulence to look that toned down on me. I had to change the colour the …

Polishes - OPI - Austin-tatious Turquoise

Austin-tatious Turquoise is a gorgeous blue-green, and has VERY subtle flashes of light purple (only if you look at it at a certain angle).

I found the formula almost devastatingly thin, considering what a rich turquoise it appears to be from the bottle. I had to apply 4 coats for it to be completely opaque, but it was so worth it once I achieved the the bottle colour.

I …

Polishes - OPI - Not Like The Movies

Apr/07/2011

OPI's Not Like The Movies is an cool grey that flashes both an olive-y green and purple, depending on the lighting; I couldn't help but catch myself staring at my nails from time to time when I wore it, and, I got tons of compliments from people at work. It is 'safe' enough for work, yet is a very unique colour.

With respect to application, as others mentioned, the …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Yoga-Ta Get This Blue!

5.0

Apr/07/2011

What a gorgeous colour. Yoga-ta Get This Blue is a true blue; so many blues out there have a touch of either purple or green in them - not that I have anything against them, I just really wanted a blue with nothing else in it! It is nice and dark, yet doesn't look black which is another winner with this colour.

Application was a breeze; I applied two coats, but I think one coat …

Polishes - OPI - You Don't Know Jacques! Suede

Mar/20/2011

I was very curious to know how this was going to look. I read the tag on the bottle not to use hand cream or top coat and that Suedes don't last as long as regular OPI lacquers, so if anything, I was slightly skeptical. Once I put it on though, I was impressed with how it dried (pretty much instantly!) and it looked quite pretty on. It was shimmery, yet very flat and matte and it appeared …Read more

Phew... I finally got my hands on Shatter... this was sold out everywhere! I ended up putting my name on a waiting list at a salon AND buying 2 off eBay... so now I have 3... yay! Totally love it. About 10-15 years ago, a drug store brand (I think Wet n' Wild?) had something similar to this around Halloween, so when I heard about Shatter, I HAD to get it! As everyone noted, you must work …Read more

Mar/20/2011

This was my first CG nail polish and I think this is a very fun and pretty colour. I was leary about how it would look on my olive complexion, but actually looks quite nice on. The gold undertone is not very noticable in flouresecent light at work (which is where I spent most of my day ><), and definitely more prevalent in sunlight. I found the formula relatively thick, so 2 coats did …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Pompeii Purple

Mar/20/2011

I don't understand how the product is named purple, because I definitely see it being more of a deep pink...not that it's a bad thing though! I find this a gorgeous, glossy, shimmery, iridescent pink that shines a lovely soft lilac/blue. I work in an office but I am very trendy by nature and am not into neutrals...so I like to experiment with various colours until my boss tells me to …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Cuckoo For This Color

Mar/20/2011

My experience wasn't the best with this polish, but I probably didn' wait long enough between coats because I found it terribly bubbly! It somehow lost its lusture one it dried, but I also didn't use topcoat. I did get quite a bit compliments on the colour though, and read all the positive reviews, so I will be more patient next time and use topcoat, and will have to revisit this …Read more
