OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls

it's been polishie two days :D finally took advantage of the Sally's buy two get one free on any polish sale... i got the 2012 Orly Feel The Vibe collection (so excited to use these neons!) and a few other assorted Orlys... yay!

My Boyfriend Sclaes Walls is today's offering from the 2012 OPI Spider-Man collection. it's a very greYed out white creme that is quite pigmented and opaque at two coats. a word of caution with the formula... it worked best for me when i had a large bead of polish on the brush and gently spread it out over the nail (using as few brushstrokes as possible). when i used too many brushstrokes, the polish got goopy and streaky... yuck. if you're scared to go for a complete 'white out' mani, this is a good medium toned white polish. basically, you've got the training wheels off the bike, but you're not ready for a handbrake! (who else went flying over the bike's handlebars when trying to learn to use the handbrake?)

i only used one coat of Seche Vite over MBSW and no base coat... i wanted to see just how pigmented it is... and i'm impressed!

if you're looking for a bright white, this isn't it... but it's a lovely shade and i'm glad to have it! who else likes to rock a white out mani?? Ria :)


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
