O.P.I - My Vampire is Buff

Hi!

Firstly, I completely blame Deborah over at lovevarnish for this - she's done some amazing looks with this polish over the last couple of months, and every time I saw another one I drooled over it a little more. O.P.I is expensive enough here, and as much as I love polish I'm not in the habit of paying €15 for one before you even add delivery. I got mine from Universal Nail Supplies on eBay here - it cost just under €10 including postage and arrived from America within 4 days. If you want to buy from an Irish site, millies.ie have hundreds of O.P.I colours for €11.99 but unfortunately, they didn't have this one.


This is two coats and one coat of Poshé. It was completely opaque after the two coats, and not streaky at all, which was a pleasant surprise considering it's a pale polish.


After I ordered it, I got a little attack of the guilts, because I thought it might have been too similar to Essie's Fiji (swatched here), but it's much warmer and creamier.


It's definitely one of my must-have polishes of 2013.

And yes, I'm delighted at the very, very mild Buffy reference.

    1. Is it Barry M Lychee? :) I was looking at that one too but I stopped buying Barry M polishes after their woeful Customer Service pissed me off, so OPI it was! x

  3. That's a nice nude actually! But I would never pay full whack for it either, ridiculous pricing for OPI over here.

    1. It is ridiculous. It was my 30th birthday in June and nobody gave me presents because apparently I'm hard to buy for (tut) so I ended up with either money or vouchers, that's the only reason I splurged on it, and even at a tenner it's dear for a polish that's not an indie! I am glad I got it, it's so easy to work with.
