Apparently there was supposed to be a big snow storm here in Toronto today, I've also heard that a lot of Canada and the U.S would be effected as well. So far we weren't hit too bad, too much hype I think!
Today I have one of Sephora by OPI's polish from their limited edition holiday collection. This polish was also released prior to the holiday collection but I'm not sure if it was apart of another one. I'm talking about 212. Does anyone know why this name was picked for this polish? I'm curious to know why they chose a number.
I saw this polish in the store and knew I had to have it, look how awesome it looks in the bottle! There was only one left so I picked it up, and I'm glad I did! I'm usually never able to find the limited edition polishes at the closest Sephora to me.
This polish is hard to describe, and the swatch on the Sephora website is not even close! I want to say that this has a black base, but the gold shimmer give it an olive look. The most interesting thing about this polish is the flakies and holographic glitter, a very original polish in my opinion.
I'm pretty sure I applied 2 coats, but for some reason I want to say three lol. It applied alright, first coat was streaky, but the second coat evened everything out. The brush is nothing like the OPI pro-wide brush which kind of sucks, the brush for the Sephora line is actually quite narrow and thin.
This polish is super hard to capture, I would suggest clicking on the photos, as always ;) for a larger view.
As you can see I took a lot of photos lol I wanted to try and capture this polish's colour the best I could. The flakies mainly look and orange/red/copper colour but if looked at from a different angle (see image below) you can see that the flakies change green.
I wish the sun was out more often so I could enjoy this polish more. With grey skies and no sun it is hard to see what is truly going on in this polish.
