After getting absolutely drenched taking the children to school in the rain this morning , I needed a good cheering up and nothing cheers me up more than having a lovely polish/laquer applied to my nails.
Today I have decided my nails need some polish on them after the disaster I had with the nail wraps the other day.
I received this beautiful shade from OPI on Tuesday and with it being described as a lovely rich burgundy shade , I definitely thought this may be a lovely colour to have applied for the week.
What OPI have to say -
OPI is a professional quality lacquer that is chip resistant, high gloss and easy to apply. OPI nail lacquer shades contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and each includes OPI's exclusive Pro-Wide Brush for the ultimate in application. In the Cable Car-Pool Lane is a rich burgundy with a creme finish.
To be honest , nail polish/laquer is something that does not bother me in the sense that they all do the same thing.
I do have a few favourites such as my most loved mixed glitter polish/laquer , Polka.com by OPI and Navy by Barry M which is a beautiful midnight blue .
Both polishes for me stay on well but they both chip just the same ,so for me the difference in price makes me wonder why am I paying for a higher end item when a drugstore polish/laquer gives me the same result.
Either way I love the shade of the
'' In the cable car-pool lane ''
OPI In the Cable Car Pool Lane from the San Francisco Collection was described by OPI as burgundy but I dont see that at all. I see this as a beautiful berry red purple but more purple than red .
I found the formula to be a lovely jelly like coating which did go on evenly with a smooth finish but the downfall is that I found I had to apply this 3 times before I had full coverage of the nail.
As with the other OPI I have had before , this dries very quickly which is perfect as I applied this before realising I needed to put the washing away .
The OPI brush is a fabulous Pro- wide style which makes it easy to apply that even coat without having to touch up around the sides .
One coat of this is definately no good and looks more pink than the actual shade plus you can see how streaky it looks until applying another 1 or 2 before getting the perfect coat.
I absolutely love the shine on this polish and I can see myself wearing this in the rainy May day weather .
So what do you think of my choice of polish/laquer today, do you have , want it, hate it, ?
Let me know your thoughts.
