Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Wicked

5.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

Essie Wicked, my favorite Winter red during those coldest days and longest nights. One coat gives you a deep oxblood that is opaque and very attractive, however two coats provide the true color which is a super deep burgundy red that looks *almost* black. I say *almost* because it's not as stark as a black polish, you can definitely see color in it even in indoor lighting. If you are looking …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Malaga Wine

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I am not impressed by Malaga Wine. The only positives I can say about it is that it's relatively inexpensive and easily found (not a rare, discontinued color) and that it would compliment most skin tones (it's neutral). However it's boring. There's no 'wow' factor to it. The fact that Princess Di wore it shows you how conservative it is. I wouldn't even describe …Read more

Polishes - OPI - The Grape Lakes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I am surprised at some of the violently negative reviews against The Grape Lakes. I think it's a pretty color, a medium grape-mauve
with a hint of brown and a nice silver shimmer. Google the polish and you'll see that it's not overly dark, muddy, or frosty. I also see it as an attractive office neutral when you don't want to wear the usual nudes and sheer pinks. The only …

Polishes - OPI - Copper Mountain Copper

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

As other reviewers mentioned, Copper Mountain Copper is not a metallic copper. The review directly below me describes it best, it's a warm-to-neutral brick red with a subtle copper/gold shimmer that makes for a lovely Fall/Winter manicure (or even pedicure). It is NOT a frost and I detected NO orange, pink, or rose in it. It's not too dark (i.e. vampy) and will look good on a variety of …Read more

Polishes - OPI - My Throne For A Cranberry Scone

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I adore this polish! My Throne For A Cranberry Scone (British Collection....2003, I believe) is a deep pink-raspberry red that applies like a dream, looks glossy straight out of the bottle. It is a *true* cranberry, the perfect Thanksgiving manicure. I say *true* because there are many cranberrish colors out there but I think this one comes closest to the spirit of the berry (LOL). I own …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do is a favorite OPI Summer shade of mine. As a previous reviewer mentioned, it's a red with a strong orange undertone. It goes on smooth and creamy with absolutely no streaks and lasts me through two weeks 'til my next manicure. Plus, it looks equally good on both fairer skin and tan skin.Never had a problem with chipping. EDIT: The manicure photographs here of …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Smok'n In Havana

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

This review is for the 1996 Black Label (discontinued) version of OPI's Smok'n in Havana, not the Infinite Shine version. The Infinite Shine version continues to be available and is a lot less expensive than the Black Label version which can run you $30.00-40.00 bucks (hence my 5 lipstick rating). Also, I don't know how the two versions compare color-wise, OPI very often will …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - I'm His Coral-Friend

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I'm His Core-Al Friend is the quintessential Summer coral, not overly orange or fluorescent like some corals are, with a lovely shiny, crelly finish. It's not sheer, as other reviewers have described, you get good coverage in 2 coats. Beautiful shade. Reminds me of geraniums. I always get compliments when I wear it. An OPI must-have!

Polishes - OPI - Magnifico Mexico

5.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

As an earlier reviewer mentioned, Magnifico Mexico is a great Summer-to-Fall transition color or a simply all-around Autumn shade.
It's complex, a deep spicy terracotta (more orange than red) with red-orange-gold shimmer. I don't see the coral/pink flash at all, but it could be just me. Warning, it does look pretty ugly in the bottle but applies like a dream and looks beautiful …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Cosmo-Not Tonight Honey

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

This shade doesn't do it for me. Cosmo-Not Tonight Honey is a champagne with a pale golden hue (hence, the Honey), I don't see any rose or pink in it whatsoever. I have medium yellow-orange skin tone and this polish simply disappears on me. I think someone with a different skin tone (cooler) would probably look better wearing this. A plus, for those who can wear this shade, is that you …Read more
