OPI Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue

Mama Pawlish and i were out running errands today and stopped to eat at one of our fave restaurants, the Bellagio. imagine how shocked we were to find it had gone out of business! i'm so bummed :( i've had that happen before, actually... Mr. Pawlish and i were headed to my favorite BBQ place... only to find it had turned into a Taco Loco! talk about a buzz kill! we ate at Round Table Pizza instead... can't say i was super impressed. it was okay, but not great. so, i will still dream of an eat-in Pizza Hut!i

today's polish is the last up from the OPI Germany collection, Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue. i think they went way overboard with the - this time! seems like every polish had a hyphen. other than it's annoying name, it's a lovely polish! i'm of course prejudiced towards it anyway since blue is my fave nail color, but this is a really nice, deep warm blue pearl with a subtle shimmer. it reminds me of one my absolutely favorite polishes, OPI Swimsuit... Nailed It!, which i haven't reviewed yet... need to get on that! this one is a bit darker and far less shimmery than Swimsuit, though. the formula is great, two easy coats for full opacity... like basically every polish in this collection! my only complaint is that while it doesn't show every brushstroke, it does show some big wobbly ones... so take care in application! and definitely add topcoat for shine :)

two coats Blue, one coat Seche Vite.




this polish does have a stronger teal undertone than my camera wanted to capture...which means it's even more pretty than my swatchie would have you think :D

while the Germany collection wasn't groundbreaking by any stretch, it's full of solid, beautiful polishes! did you guys pick up any of these? what did you think? Ria :)
