Manicure Monday: In The Cable Car-Pool Lane

September 09, 2013

Happy Monday! I'm back from a weekend away (again) - and I never thought I would return exhausted from a weekend getaway! My best friend is getting married this year, so us in the bridal party took her out for a bachelorette weekend away. So. Tired. But hey, I love weddings and am counting down the days.

It's another week back at school for me and I'm hoping this one goes by quick. And with the return of school is the inevitable change of seasons - the days are getting shorter, and the mornings are getting colder. Hello, Fall. So I picked up a few shades from OPI's Fall 2013 Collection featuring the beautiful city of San Francisco. Up this week is one of my favourite fall shades - a gorgeous deep plum creme called In The Cable Car-Pool Lane. Although the colour is beautiful, I wasn't too impressed with the formula and application. I found the polish to be a little thicker than normal, so application was streaky, and the polish wouldn't level itself out. At three coats in the pictures above, I could still see streakiness and wasn't happy with the finish. The manicure lasted only 3 days before chipping, and I would attribute it to the formula. Boo. Hopefully the next polish performs better!

  1. i bet the bachelorette party was fun & awesome andrea! good luck with your studies! you'll do fine. WOW!!! What is wrong with OPI!!! I've never seen their formula this bad before. I looked at that collection and didn't buy it for some reason. Thanks for being honest girl. I really appreciate it.
