....more like Metro CHEAP.
I see it every time I'm in Sephora. dozens of girls swarming the Sephora by OPI nail polish carousel to get their hands on the latest blogged-about shades. From Metro Chic to It's Bouquet With Me, bloggers have a way of making anything look and sound amazing; and if it's affordable even better! Sephora by OPI is a branch of OPI which I have been disappointed in time and time again, and with the new Glee collection coming out, along with some tantalizing summer colours, I had to get the word out about these babies. Now I'll admit, every time I wear Metro Chic in a video, I get a billion comments asking, begging me to reply what polish I'm wearing, and I always reluctantly reply "metro chic....but do NOT purchase this shade unless you absolutely can't find another similar one...it is awwwwful!" Let's continnue picking on Metro Chic, shall we? It takes about 4 coats to get this polish perfectly opaque....and let's face it.....you just can't wear greige in a streaky, thin manner can you? no. Once you've applied your lovely 4 coats, you sit and wait for-ev-er for it to dry completely. fewf. Now i'm the type of person who sloppily applies my nail polish before bed, and when i take a nice hot shower in the morning, all the crusty uneven edges that have dribbled over onto my cuticles and fingers are melted away. along with half my polish. You see, when you apply such a thick helping of nail polish, it chips much much more easily. I have tried nail ridge fillers, base coats, top coats, ands everything under the blue moon, but the only thing that seems to help this stay on any longer than one shower/bath/day of running my fingers through my hair or a text book, is a cement-worthy glitter coat; and I am SO not down with glitter all over my cool edgy grunge polish. So this spring when your sephora by opi is like "yo whats up, we all love glee, buy this nail polish" ....be like "no sephora by opi! yalls are a bunch of chippy chipping chippers!"
