I have Anti-Valentine’s manicure on. So no red, pink polish for me. I chose gray one, but not on purpose. I only realized it was Valentines day after I got rose from the promoters in the mall.
This week I received OPI Tiny Toybox – 4 mini polishes from Holiday in Toyland collection. As usually I was impressed by “odd polish out” – Brand New Skates.
This is the first time I bought OPI polish, simply because I don’t like their color choices. But this set had me intrigued. Should I buy it or not – that is the question now. Well, as you can see, I caved in and bought it. It’s mini set anyway – so why not. An when I say mini, I mean four tiny tiny polishes. I don’t think I ever saw polish this small before. It’s perfect for me (3.75 ml), since I love to change polish regularly, I never use up those Gulliver sized bottles anyway.
If you want even application, you’ll need three layers. I didn’t use top coat because I wanted to test drying time and durability. I was not impressed with either and will be using fast drying top coat in the future.
Brand New Skates has gray base which is sprinkled with gold, green, orange (you could probably find more colors in there) shimmer. Usually gray color would wash out my warm based complexion, but shimmer makes all the difference with this polish. Thumbs up for OPI on this shade.
