And here is another reason why I fell in love with this mini-collection:
Please Red-Cycle is described as an “apple red,” however, I actually saw the slightest hint of fuchsia in this vibrant beauty. This one blew me away… the pictures are all just two easy coats over base – no top coat! Look at that shine! And the formula was a dream, very fluid but providing amazing coverage. It could have almost been a one-coater! It’s a cream polish but reminded me of a crelly (a cream jelly) with its glossiness and juicy finish.
Here it is in the sun:
Isn’t that a beauty?? I can’t decide if it’s vibrant and hot for summer, or a classic cool red… I would venture to guess this is a year-round polish for me, and going into my “most loved” stash!
Finally, for some fun, I decided to layer a white confetti glitter overtop, using OPI’s recent Lights of Emerald City from the Oz The Great and Powerful collection:
Lights of Emerald City is made up of white, rainbow-translucent, and gold confetti pieces, a fun mix that surprisingly adds flair to most colours!
And last but not least, the second vamp of the New for 2013 collection: Plum to your Senses, a deep, shimmery, multi-tonal purple hue!
Filled with tiny shimmers, this polish looks best in direct sunlight. In most other light, this looks almost black. The formula wasn’t as good as Please Red-cycle; it was a touch thinner and required a steady hand.
