OPI recently released their New Orleans collection and while I was a bit disappointed (where are the metallics!?) I did fall in love with one of them and brought it home to live with me. Check out my review after the break 🙂
Show Us Your Tips is a gorgeous, lavender leaning periwinkle color brimming with silver micro-shimmer. The polish was sheer and took three coats for full opacity, but the formula was thin, easy to work with and built nicely.
Though I am not a huge fan of blue, I actually cannot get enough of periwinkle-type colors, I just think it is such a feminine shade and love wearing it! I also have to admit that I adore the name of this polish LOL 🙂
I also decided to stamp over this just to see how it would look – but I didn’t go into that with much of a plan and it ended up a bit overpowering (in my opinion) but let me know what you think! I stamped it with Essie – No Place Like Chrome and plate BM-XL01 at first but was left feeling like it needed something else – so then I went overboard and stamped it with Funky Fingers – Dark Knight and plate BP-21.
It ended up making the look really bold, which I kind of shy away from, but I don’t think they are terrible lol
In any case, if you like periwinkle, I think this is a good option. The shimmer is very noticeable on the nail and the light plays well on it. In shadow and dimmer light, the color appears more of a Wedgewood shade of blue.
How do you feel about OPI’s New Orleans collection and what do you think of Show Us Your Tips? 🙂
