"Getting Nailed" Polish Challenge for the week of October 16th 2006:
I originally was going with a red nail this week until I got sidetracked by another vamp shade.
I decided to go with a new OPI shade called Oh to be 25 Again. It is part of their anniversary collection. It is a rich red based chocolate brown. Think Red Velvet cake. This polish is highly pigmented with a glossy sheen. OPI polishes last well with my nails but this one is exceptional. The sheen rivals the glossy Japanese Rose Garden.
The above picture is from a makeupalley member named Elizabethhoye. This is a great shot of the various vamp shades. OPI Vampire State Building is fairly famous in nail polish junkie circles. It is a HG polish. The color depends on how many coats you use. The more you use the more goth it gets. Two coats can get you a lovely blood red rose. Three takes you to Chanel Vamp levels.
OPI A Man in Every Port-ugal is also a solid performing vampish maroon shade. This one has the most subtle flash of blue shimmer. It is gorgeous.
I am not familiar with China Glaze's Vintage. According to various MUA reports it is a true brick red that is slightly naughty.
What is your nail polish this week?
