Swatch and review time! In the line of fire today is Ski Teal We Drop from the OPI Swiss Collection 2010.
OPI Ski Teal We Drop
I bought this from an ebay shop (BeautyZone2007) for about €4.50. I ordered 6 polishes to save on shipping… sure, that’s why you ordered six Amy!
I usually shy away from blues and greens, actually ‘run and hide from’ would be more accurate. Lately I have been feeling bored of my usual pinks and plums. Seriously, how many pink polishes can one girl own?! I made a pact to try something more daring.
This decision led to branch out into navy – I wanted to dip my toe into more extreme colours first, ease myself in. I then decided that teal would be a good option to ease myself from navy to green.
Enter Ski Teal We Drop…
There is no point in beating about the bush, I love the colour! It looks beautiful in the bottle and just as pretty on the nails.
The consistency is creamy and opaque. One coat covered most of my nails but I chose to add a second for an even finish. It’s easy to apply and dries quite quickly.
I highly recommend this shade. It’s wearable and chic and not too in your face. Best of all, I have received quite a few compliments on it so it must be a winner.
It’s also a very flattering. One of the reasons green and blue never appealed to be is because the skin on my hands is so fair – I thought it might make be look ill. This shade could be worn by anyone and definitely flatters an Irish skintone – in fact the contrast is beautiful!
I used the OPI top coat over the top and the polish lasted 3 days before minor chipping occurred.
I will definitely repurchase.
Now all that’s left to do is decide where I go from here. I have braved a teal, dare I go brighter? I was thinking of keeping it safe but dipping another toe in by going for a brighter teal like OPI Teal the Cows Come Home?
Any green or blue polish recommendations?
