O.P.I. Let's Do Anything We Want!
And the pink craze continues...
Am I the only one who thought that this year's Soft Shades collection wasn't so soft? We all know how I feel about metallic blues (refresher: barf) and I'm not so hot on duochromes. Everything else looked fun, but Let's Do Anything We Want! was the one that jumped out at me most...almost literally. It was in my shopping basket at Sally's before I even read the name. I'll probably be twitching for the other soft shades and glitters around this time next year, though.
This polish vies for favorite glitter topper with year-before-lasts confection, Pirouette My Whistle. I don't know which I love more. I would say Let's Do Anything We Want! but I have pink fever right now, and Pirouette My Whistle goes with anything.
Let's Do Anything We Want! is a unique blend of large white squares, rosy pink glitter hexes, smaller white squares, and very, very small white circles in a clear base. It's magic girly perfection. One coat is delicate and whimsical, two coats is a glitter bomb of pink sweetness. It is going to make an awesome Valentine's manicure next year.
Formula was great too. The large white squares were a bit difficult to get out, but if you let the polish rest upside down for a few minutes, you won't have a problem. As for the the other glitters, they spread out beautifully. Dry time was average, and texture wasn't a problem at all! This one dries glossy and flat, no top coat gobbling.
I'm wearing two coats over O.P.I. Let Them Eat Rice Cake, which pulls surprisingly baby pink on me. I've see swatches of it and even looking at it in the bottle there is a drop of grey or beige that made me think it would be similar to My Very First Knockwurst. But when I wear it, it becomes distinctly baby pink, with just a drop of peach. I'm not complaining, I don't have a baby pink in my collection, but in the bottle it looks so different.
