Some OPI Spam

Saturday, March 23, 2013
Hi folks, I hope you're enjoying your weekend! I myself am off to the beach with Morgan and family. If it seems like every weekend I'm off somewhere, well... it's because I am. I'm so happy that I've really been able to spend my weekends exploring California.
I've done spam by color and finish, but not yet brand so today's nail spam is all OPI. I used to buy quite a bit of OPI when I still shopped at pro stores, but in recent years have not collected very many. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the spam!

 OPI Stay The Night. Three coats. From the Mariah Carey Collection, the first of this kind of texture to hit the market. Dry time is sort of slow, and when fully dry the finish is not as gritty as I would like. I prefer this with topcoat.

OPI My Private Jet. Three coats. I have the brown non-holo version. I know it's not as spectacular, but I think it is pretty in its own right. Brown and sort of opalescent with chunky silver holo micro glitter.

OPI Black Cherry Chutney. Three coats. Blackened wine shimmer. 99% of the time, this looks pretty much black to me. Only when you hold it up to a super bright light do the edges of the nail look slightly reddish. For the longest time I put off buying Every Month is Oktoberfest because I thought it would look like this (good thing it doesnt!)

OPI Russian Navy Suede. Two coats. Ahh, Suedes! So gorgeous. You have to apply these quickly because they dry really fast (and on some people tend to chip pretty fast) but I think they are so worth it. 

OPI Roadhouse Blues. Three coats, I think. Don't quote me on that. Gorgeous dark indigo. I bought this because it's pretty close in color to OPI Sapphire In the Snow which I don't own and can't really find. See LaquerWear's comparison.

OPI Chopstick-ing To My Story. Three coats. The Hong Kong Collection was from spring of '10. My photo makes it look bolder and more saturated than it actually is. Actually, if you google this shade it's hard to find a picture that accurately shows how murky and faded this burnt orange creme is. Trust me on this one? I still really love it, it's a 'pretty ugly' shade to me. 

 OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston. Three coats. What did they call this finish again? Sorbet? Something like that. A lovely punchy jelly.

OPI DS Mystery. Three coats. This polish used to really disappointment because of how little those golden flecks actually showed up on the nail. In time, my annoyance has subsided and I now sort of like this polish. Sort of. 

OPI Tease-y Does It. Three coats. From the 2010 Holiday Burlesque Collection. This is one of my all time favorite polishes! When it first came out, I thought I could pass on it. I don't know what I was thinking. I spent the first few months in 2011 trying to track it down, it was sold out in most the beauty supplies I checked. Finally I snagged it at CosmoProf on clearance! A purple-y brownish base with really nice wine flecks that shift a little in color. 

Hope you enjoyed the spam!
