OPI Do You Lilac It, 10 Lacquer Showtime, Sinful Colors Fiji, Funky Fingers Riot.

OPI Grape…Set…Match.

Index: OPI Grape…Set…Match, Middle: Funky Fingers Riot, Ring: Sinful Colors Fiji, Pinkie: 10 Lacquer Showtime. (Dots in all of the colors.)

Closer view of the dots. The Grape…Set…Match dots were really fun.

The dotted manicure was worn over a month ago, I don’t know what happened with the images. However, I’m glad I found them for this purple testing batch. I have way too many purples so some of these need to go.

Do You Lilac It? is a great formula, and I have no other colors that are even close. It’s more pastel than I would normally do, but I think it will be great for dots and sponging in the future. 10 Lacquer Showtime has a good formula but the color isn’t blowing me away. Sinful Colors Fiji is another good polish – but I have a lot of purples and have to pick some. Funky Fingers Riot was picked up at Five Below, it’s a deep-colors blurple. The finish is a bit more matte than I anticipated but that is why we have topcoat. OPI Grape…Set…Match is from the Serena Williams collection, and is cute, but again, I’m trying to control the collection and some purples are going to have to go. It does look really fabulous in the dots application though.

Thoughts: There aren’t any polishes in this group that stand out as particularly bad in terms of usage, but I am trying hard to eliminate some so there are not so many repeats.
Verdict: Only keeping Do You Lilac It?, all of the others go to the share pile.

Polish Project #27

105. Funky Fingers Reject (Not online, got it at Five Below.) (Also, the name is not Reject, I just rejected it and tossed it and don’t know the name.)
106. Milani Silver Dazzle
107. LA Splash Midnight (Another one I can’t find online, I don’t remember where I purchased this one.)
108. OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede

This is a shame, because you can see how pretty it is on the nail back there, and even in the bottle.

But the formula is a hot mess, so much so that thinner isn’t going to cut it.

Thoughts: Pretty but a pain.
Verdict: Already went in the trash.

Milani Silver Dazzle, LA Splash Midnight, OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede.

First up, a coat (just the one) of Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede, then alternating topcoat for shine. The index and ring fingers have Poshe topcoat.

Then added LA Splash Midnight over the middle finger, and Milani Silver Dazzle over the ring finger.

Then thought that Midnight might be a dupe for OPI’s Metallic 4 Life from the Nicki Minaj collection. I will have to do a direct side-by-side but they appear to be quite similar.

Thoughts: I think that Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede is my favorite gray polish, but I prefer it with the topcoat. The glitters I tried here are also great. I will re-test Midnight and Metallic 4 Life in a future post.
Verdict: Everyone gets to stay!
