Hello gentle reader.
OPI Green On the Runway, from the Summer '14 Coca Cola Collection is one of those polishes. You know what I'm talking about. Those polishes that have that it factor: Colour, shine, presence. OPI Green On the Runway has all of that to spare.
OPI Green On the Runway is a stunning Colombian emerald green shimmer that shifts hard to brown. There is very little in between with this duochrome. It is one or the other, green, brown or shifting both, there is little interplay of other shades and tones that you normally see in other duochrome polishes.
While this polish was released in a Summer collection, I have to tell you, I think it is perfect for Autumn. The shift from green to brown perfectly symbolizes the changing of leaves. If I were working at OPI, I would have saved this for a Fall collection. But, that's just me.
I like to wear this over a good ridge filling base coat and topped with Seche Vite. This mani is two coats.
Sorry about the creepy exposure on this last shot but it really shows that shift. I got a great shot of this polish by accident with my cell phone when I was in my car, one day and published it on my Instagram, here. Isn't that always the way?
The formula on OPI Green On the Runway is near perfect. Fluid, thin but not runny, easy to control it glides onto the nails, doesn't run, streak, drag, pool or bubble. Dry time is quick, a good fast dry top coat makes it almost lightening fast. Wear time is acceptable for me at about three days.
As always, my photos just don't do this insanely gorgeous polish full justice. If you like green polish, if you are into duochromes and you haven't picked this one up yet and can find a bottle, I urge you to get one, while you still can. It is special and worthy of a place in your polish collection. Okay, I just checked the Ulta website and it is still available there. Try Sally Beauty Supply, JC Penny salons. Look around, while it isn't in as wide release as it was earlier in the year, it is still attainable.
Do you own OPI Green On the Runway? What do you think of it? Are you a fan of duochrome polishes? Please do share your thoughts.
Thank you for reading, have a terrific day and may your polish never bubble.
