Polishes - OPI - Holiday in Toyland You're a Doll

I've added my photo of this one.

I’m psyching myself up for going back to work tomorrow after a lovely long Easter break and so wanted something a bit more grown-up and sophisticated.

This seems to hit the spot. It is a very pale mauvey-grey that has a lovely sheen to it, and when the light hits it in the right way, you can see it has these little coppery …

Polishes - OPI - Paint My Moji-toes Red

5.0

Apr/13/2009

I have this on my toes at the moment. Normally I go for something with a bit of shimmer for a pedi but this looks great.

It looks like a muted red-orange creme on me rather than coral but I love it. Application was great, just two coats and totally opaque. I've had it on for a fortnight now with no wear or damage whatsoever and I think it'll be there a while longer too …

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Ridge Filler

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

I'm on the fence with this one. I have psoriasis so get prone to small ridges on my nails so I thought I'd give it a go.

Currently am wearing this under OPI's Glamour Game and I'm convinced that it led to the polish taking longer to dry.

Ridge Filler took about 15 minutes to get to touch-dry alone and that was only with one coat. It was sticky and wet …

Polishes - OPI - Charmed By A Snake

I've uploaded my picture of this one.
The brush was dreadful and needed a little haircut - I've found that with a few of my Indias. After that though, application was fine. This is two coats, and it dried really fast.

The problem for me is just the colour. Although packed with glitter, which I usually love, it was just too fudgey and sludgey for my personal …

Polishes - OPI - Nutcracker Sweet holiday duo

In the bottle this looks gorgeous. I can't do a different job of describing it than has already be done - it really is a weird (but lovely) hybrid of rose, green and gold.
I found it to be very, very sheer but it looks awesome layered over either black (for winter) or white (for summer). Surprisingly versatile!

Polishes - OPI - Glamour Game

This is the one gold that I can wear without it looking gaudy or making my hands look an off shade of beige. Maybe this is due to the silvery shimmer - it looks almost peachy toned on me. A lovely glam shade for Xmas parties and so on - would go with anything. It's subtle enough to wear for work as well.
However...I found application to be a bit of a headache and I needed about five …

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Drip Dry

Love it, love it, love it!
I just wish it came in bigger bottles. This really does do what it promises. Just make sure you leave 5-10 mins after putting on your top layer of polish/topcoat before putting it on, as if you put it on soaking wet nails it won't work as well. And don't do what I did and get wet stuff out of the washing machine for an hour or so, or it will mark a little …

Polishes - OPI - Brand new skates

Apr/13/2009

I really wanted to love this. I adore OPI anyway, and normally I snap up any dark grey / gunmetal style polish. Not to mention the fact I waited weeks to track one down as BNS is rare as anything, especially in the UK.
It was unbelievably sheer and took about four coats to get anywhere near opaque.
My boyfriend said I looked like I had witches' nails and even though you could see …

Polishes - OPI - You Don't Know Jacques!

Apr/13/2009

I adore this colour, so much so that I have bought two backups as well.
I must have been on a taupe kick as I bought a handbag that is exactly the same colour in the same week!
Application was perfect, two coats and it was perfectly opaque.
My version leans towards a khaki green on the nail and is quite mossy and sludgy but I have no problem with that at all - it makes it totally …

Polishes - OPI - "Sheer" Your Toys!

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2009

This is my favourite nail polish that I bought last year. I, like everyone else was a bit confused by the name and the fact that it wasn't "sheer" at all, but it didn't bother me whatsoever as I like my polish to be opaque anyway.
This is the one I always put on when I can't decide on what colour to wear.
I love greys and this is no disappointment. I also love …
