Mod About You by OPI: Things That Make You Go Hmmmm…

Let’s cut straight to the chase:  I think this would make a much better colour on the toes than the fingernails.

The colour in the bottle is a gorgeous pink with a subtle lilac undertone, and I’m a big fan of all things pink.  However, the first problem is that the formula is much more streaky than other OPI polishes, so I had to apply three coats (see picture above) to get a streak-free coverage on my nails.  The polish also seems to chip more quickly than other OPI polishes.  This polish started to chip after two days on my nails, even with the application of a top coat.

The other problem is the finish and the colour.  On my nails this is quite chalky, so I look like  I’ve somehow melted down my aunty’s favourite pink ceramic teapot circa 1952 and painted my nails with that.  It definitely does have a mod thing going on regarding the chalkiness and pinkness of the colour.  However, as a child of the eighties, when I wear this I feel like I should be rollerskating along a beach in California in a David Lee Roth video.  And not in a good way (is there a good way?).

On the toes, I think the chalkiness is not quite as obvious, and the light pink is definitely a fun colour to apply in summer.
