Do any of you ever check out the deals at Regis Salon? They normally have a display by the entrance of the salon where they have hair products, etc. on sale. Sometimes they have O.P.I. nail polish in the sale bin and I always dig around to see what they have. A few days ago they had Buy 1 Get 2 Free on everything in their sale bin. So here is one of the polishes I picked up.
The Spy Who Loved me from the 2012 Skyfall Collection
At first site, I thought of China Glaze Riveting. It appeared really orange to me, especially next to the other one I had in my hand (You Only Live Twice). I really enjoy Riveting, so I thought this would be a good one to have since it's more of a reddish orange.
I haven't worn an OPI for a while and I sure did appreciate the brush and formula on this. I think OPI is one of those brands that you can count on as far as formula goes. There aren't many OPI's that I have that are streaky or thin. The Spy Who Loved Me was opaque in one coat. I did add another coat because I always do, but one coat is all you need.
Here is a comparison to show you how it's more red than orange and more orange than red. In some lights, it leans a little more orange....but then I can look at it in another light, and it looks more red. I really love that about this polish.
Here are the 3 polishes I picked up for $8.50+ tax total. Left: Did You Ear About Van Gogh? (2012 Holland Collection), Middle: The Spy Who Loved Me, and Right: You Only Live Twice from the Skyfall Collection.
I'm pretty excited about Did You Ear About Van Gogh. It isn't at white as it looks in this photo. It's more of a light beige. I have a few other polishes that may be dupes such as Essie Sand Tropez that I will have to compare it to. I'm hoping the formula is better than the Essie.
I try to stick to my wish list when buying polishes these days, but I just couldn't pass up Buy 1 Get 2 Free for OPI. I am proud that I didn't Buy 2 Get 4 Free:)
Have a nice day.
