Yeah, I know, more nail polish. I'll keep it short and sweet, I promise, it was just so pretty that I had to show y'all. I hit up Ulta this weekend (more on that later), and made an immediate beeline for the OPI Swiss collection. I went in really looking to get Glitzerland, a pretty antiqued/champagne gold, but in the store Diva of Geneva totally knocked my socks off.
Let me just start by saying that I'm really not a berry-toned person. I don't own berry-toned anything. But this polish...oof. It's what I always wanted from vampy polishes, it's dark enough to make a statement, but it's still vibrant enough that you get a lovely flash of color. It's a warm, purpley-berry with gold and fuchsia shimmer, and when I say shimmer, I mean SHIMMER. This is one of those polishes that is as shimmery in the bottle as it is on your fingers. When I sent my roommate a picture of the bottle, she told me not to spend all day staring at my sparkly nails. And I spent all day staring at my sparkly nails. I lost the sunlight to show all the shimmer-fire, so for better swatches click here.
Ignore the crappy manicure, it was done literally in the dark over a week old manicure of topcoat. No joke. This polish applies perfectly with two coats, no streaking or texture issues at all. I think this would be equally gorgeous on fingers and toes. I just really have nothing like it. It's so sophisticated and chic, but at the same time it's really, really festive and fun. I can see myself going through an entire bottle of this, and I've never done that with a polish before. I highly recommend it. To see the rest of the collection, check out these swatches. I'm not a green/teal polish person, but I'm totally eying Cuckoo for this Color.
Awkward Chic rating: A+. Fab color, fab product. and available right now at Ulta.
