OPI- The Color To Watch

Hey everyone! Today I have a polish from the OPI Swiss collection that came out not too long ago. I actually wasn't wowed by anything from the collection, but I had a lot of ulta reward points so I picked up 3 polishes for free. Gotta say, I'm glad I didn't actually pay for this one. I kind of hate it, sorry OPI.  It's just a weird color, a light lavender with a blue shimmer that is all brush strokey (even though you can't see that in my pictures!) and it looks kinda frosty in the sun...I just can't get into it. It's pretty (in the shade or indoors), but just not for me. The formula was actually better than I expected, I thought it would be a lot more sheer than it ended up being.  I'm not sure why all these polish companies are trying to make FROST happen again, but I really wish they would stop, it's gross.

Sorry for being a negative Nancy today, I really really tried to like this. I think it might be a good layering polish, maybe over black or another dark color.

This is 3 coats of OPI- The Color To Watch and 1 coat of China Glaze Fast Forward

  2. LOL, I just have to say this, stop trying to make frost happen, it's not going to happen.

    But yeah, I agree with you on this color. It's kind of ironic that they named it that too, because I really feel like it's not an attractive color and nobody should be watching it at all.

  4. LOL @ KarenD! I just received this one in a giveaway and I gotta say: I can't wait to use it! The color I see IRL is quite different than the color I see on your pics (it looks more pink IRL).

  5. lol Karen...you never know I might just send it to you!

    Megan- I think it has some pink slight pink shimmer going on but I could only see it IRL ( couldn't capture it ) but even then, on me it wasn't really noticeable unless you were really staring at my nails. Since I'm in an office all day it pretty much always looked like the first picture. I wish it would have looked more pink while I had it on, I might have liked that lol

  7. I like this color on you. I even like it I'd get it, but wallets crying right now so no go for me. But when I do I'ma track it down. But that's just me. I think it's a pretty color.
