OPI Purple-opolis (Greek Isles Collection 2004)

Another old but beautiful OPI polish. I bought this one because of the name and because it is from the greek collection. But that doesn´t mean I don´t like the color, a beautiful purple shimmer. It needs three coats for full coverage. Look how gorgeous it is:


Well, this beauty was screaming "matify me!" so I did :) I used ManGlaze Matte Astrophe. And as you can see, it didn´t cracle. It cracles only if you use it on a fresh mani, this was applied a few hours after. So which look do you like more?

  3. Awesome. I've thought about picking this color up a couple of times....I'm going to have to follow through. Love it with the shiny TC and the matte TC and thanks for showing it both ways. :)

  6. Ooooh!! Pretty purple. And I even like it as a matte (I usually don't like mattes - at all).

  7. Líbí se mi obě verze, lesklý asi o něco víc, vynikne tak že to není krémík, ale má i třpyt :-)
