Good Morning lovelies & happy Sunday! & to all my fellow retail workers surviving Black Friday… hope you all still have (most) of your sanity left. After 2 days of Black Friday madness, I was happy to come home last night, & paint my nails, & relax.
Christmas is definitely quickly approaching, in case you hadn’t noticed, & I was going through my stash thinking about Christmas polishes of years past. I remembered about the OPI Holiday 2014 collection which was inspired by Gwen Stefani. I had a few of the shades gifted to me back in the day, so I thought I would pull out one of the beautiful shades from that collection: Just BeClaus.
2 coats, no top coat.
For a polish that is…. yep, 8 years old, this shade applied beautifully on the nail. I did need 2 coats for full opacity, but other than that I had no issues. It dried down to a nice finish, with a good sheen to it.
The colour is a dark berry red, although in my Lightbox, it was coming across more berry than it does in regular light. The colour, though, is absolutely lovely. It’s a nice switch up from your usual Christmas-y reds.
Oof, please excuse the dustiness of my bottle! I didn’t realize how neglected she looked until I was looking at my pictures afterwards.
I feel like for Christmas, this is a great base shade — perfect for a nice glitter topper (which is how I’m currently wearing it), or some nail art. The shade is beautiful, & deep though, & I’m happy this was my pick of this week. I’ve been pulling from my OPI oldies a lot lately, & always happy when I see the shades are still as lovely 5, 6, 7+ years later, as they were when I first bought them. I’m also back working near where I used to buy a whole bunch of OPI shades, & I’m looking forward to popping in to the store to see what goodies I might be able to find.
What do you think about OPI Just BeClaus? Did you have this OPI shade in your stash back in the day… or maybe you still have it as one of your go to shades? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below, & let me know what shades from this years holiday collections have caught your eye!
