Up until a few months ago. I can finally say I'm the proud owner of an O.P.I. and I love it.
Look, see! Holo flecks!
I was at Target looking at polish and noticed they have O.P.I. now. I picked up a pretty pink and I was surprised to see it was Sparrow Me The Drama from The Pirates Of The Carribean collection.
On a whim I started picking up bottles to look at the names and see if there were any I've seen on blogs and guess what? Most were LE polishes from old collections! Behind a few bottles I found Brand New Skates and I thought I'd seen it online before. 8 bucks or not, I decided to splurge. It's from their 2008 holiday collection called Holiday In Toyland.
I won't bore you with swatches cause it's a 4 year old polish, HTF, and there's already a million swatches out there I'm sure. :] But I'll post a couple manis I did using it so you can see how it looks layered.
First up, here's my right hand that I never posted when I did my Gumby nails. I did my ring finger to look like the red and green checkerboard at the beginning of each Gumby episode but I didn't feel like finishing it. I layered Brand New Skates over the white that I had on my other nails.
I'm glad I picked this up when I got the chance. It's a bit sheer, but it's gorgeous on it's own and it's awesome for layering.
