Good morning everyone and happy Thursday!! One step closer to the weekend! Continuing right along with my Halloween polish collection, today I have OPI Unripened for you all!
OPI Unripened is a color from OPI's 2010 Halloween Collection that was called Go Goth. All the other colors in the color were dupes for current colors in OPI's line but Unripened was not. I kind of have a bone to pick with OPI about their Halloween collections. First of all, they are usually most accessible in a box set with only minis, with the full sizes being even harder to find. Second of all, usually the colors aren't even all that great. This year's collection was a huge disappointment, and I actually didn't even buy them. OPI needs to take a cue from China Glaze in regards to their Halloween collections and step it up! Regardless, Unripened was the best OPI Halloween color we have seen in a few years so I guess I can't complain too much.
Unripened is a black polish packed with multichrome shimmer that shifts from teal to purple to pink. Sadly, the multichrome aspect of the shimmer is nearly impossible to pick up on the nail, though it does look pretty amazing in the bottle. I only have a mini of this polish, as they were on sale at Target early this year for like 60 cents a bottle and I couldn't pass them up! The full size of this is much harder to find, although I do believe there a few full sized bottles on eBay right now. The good news is that OPI Unripened is pretty much a dupe for Sinful Colors What's Your Name and there are several others that are similar as well. So, although it's not all that unique it's definitely the best Halloween polish OPI has done recently so it firmly holds a place in my stash.
Here's 2 coats of OPI Unripened. I tried super hard to capture the color shifting nature of the shimmer in this and the best instances of this are the last two pictures. They're a bit blurry but you can make out hints of purple shimmer in them. Definitely click to enlarge these bad boys. Enjoy!
What do you guys think? Do you feel like OPI needs to step up their Halloween game or do you like how they've been doing it?
Thanks for stopping by today! A quick note about my blogroll - you may have noticed that my blogroll is down right now and that is because there has been more malware going around and I have removed it as a precaution. I hope to have it back up soon!
