Today I have 2 colors from Sephora by OPI for you. First up is A True Romantic. Sephora's website describes this as a "sheer cool light pink". I can testify that it is indeed sheer - the photos above show an incredibly lumpy FIVE coats on my nails!!! The problem is with the formula; while the shade may be sheer, it's horribly, horribly streaky! There is no way to apply 1-2 coats evenly! I was absolutely PLAGUED by brush drag and bald patches! The formula was a thick, sticky, goopy nightmare! Moving on to better things...
The second color, Techno Girl, applied very nicely. Full opacity in 2 easy coats (*sigh of relief*)!!! My only gripe is with Sephora's description of this color. On their website it's described as an "opaque vivid azalea" but there's nothing vivid about it! It's a mid-toned dusty rose crème. And I guess I have another complaint, the name. Techno Girl??? Huh? What's "techno" about this color? I don't get it! I'm a geek by choice and by training and this color doesn't say anything "techno" to me... Oh well, I just know that Techno Girl was slick to apply and wore very well. :) Not a terribly exciting color, maybe, but well-behaved, at least!
TTFN!!! Thanks for reading! :)
