Review: OPI Shrek Nail Polish
Sometimes I think I should just start a nail polish blog with all these polishes I've been recently collecting! Anyways, I was able to pick up 3 of the OPI Shrek nail polishes- got them on eBay which is lucky, considering OPI is not allowed to be sold online anymore (and that's basically the only way I get stuff these days). Well, to see closeups and more details on the colors I got, keep reading!
I got Who the Shrek are you?, Fiercely Fiona, and What's with the Cattitude?. The other colors I skipped were, I believe, a lavender color (akin to the recent CG lavender), a true purple, and a deep blue. They were all very pretty, but I didn't see the need for those three, because I've either seen similar shades, or I didn't picture myself ever wearing them.
The formula of these is pretty straight-forward OPI. It took a couple coats to successfully apply Fiercely Fiona, but I generally expect that from any nail polish. And, without any changes to my routine, the OPI has absolutely lasted longer than my recent China Glaze purchases. No top coat or base coat, and it didn't chip the first day, so that's good!
^^Who the Shrek are you? is a lime green. I don't have anything like this, and it looked fun so I figured, why not? It is definitely the color of Shrek, so hopefully that won't be a turn off for many people.
^^Fiercely Fiona is a medium-to-pale yellow with a hint of green. Is Fiona kinda yellow-green? I haven't really seen the movies so I can't say. But yea, this is significantly lighter and much more yellow than the Shrek color. It's very banana ish. Check out a NOTD with this soon!
^^What's with the Cattitude is a beautiful sky blue. It is very creamy and applies perfectly. I like it for the toes, very summery and cute!
Although OPI is a bit more costly than say, China Glaze, I think these were worth the price. They're fun, creamy, summery colors, and definitely are different than other things being released this time of year. If you have a chance to check these out, do it!
What about you, do you dig the Shrek OPI collection?
