OPI Jade is the New Black

I bought OPI Jade is the New Black a while ago and I've worn it several times, but I'd never reviewed it, so here we go:

Okay, now nobody freak out with what I'm going to tell you. Remain calm, and do NOT throw stuff at your computer screen, no matter how strong the urge. Scream if you like, but not loud enough to scare your neighbors.
Ready? I don't like this polish. GASP!

I know everybody and her mother is positively batty about this polish, but I am decidedly not. Now, before I list what I don't like about it, let me say what I do like about it: the formula. Impeccable. Seriously, just flows onto the nail, dries quickly, completely opaque in two coats, not streaky at all.

But I'm just not feeling the color. It's sad, because on the nail, it's just a hair away from being drop dead gorgeous, but I feel like it lacks something and, therefore, falls flat. If it had a drop more of dusty blue color in it, I'd probably love it, but it doesn't and I don't. I was so excited when I saw the promos and now that it's here, I just...meh.

Sorry about the application by the hand was so shaky today, I couldn't believe it. I'll be giving this polish away in a giveaway soon, along with two other green polishes in honor of Depression Awareness, so stay tuned!


  1. I'm with you. The formula is great, but the color is just (you said it best) meh.

  2. Whaaaat? I love this one! I *suppose* we're all entitled to our own opinions...even if they're wrong. ;D

  3. so into the green shades!
    come follow xoo

  4. Megan Harmeyer: I'm glad I'm not the only one...haa.

    Zara: Haha, I say that all the time to my boyfriend. "Well, okay. That's your opinion. But it's wrong." But yeah, this one just wasn't for me, lol.

    FASHION ICE: I'm obsessed with greens. And I'll definitely check out your blog!
