Collection: OPI 2012 Fall, Germany
Don’t Talk Bach To Me (NL G17) is a color so difficult for me to wear that I would not have bought it, even at the discount price of $3, were it not Halloween this Saturday. But something about this holiday inspires me to try out some unusual shades, so here we go!
It’s equal parts straw yellow and pea green, with a grey undertone and fine, silvery shimmer. A dusty chartreuse. Sound appealing, yet?
I am actually quite a fan of chartreuse, with the caveat that it is pretty much a disgusting color on my skintone. Yellowish greens and yellowish browns in general just look like death on me. It can be a tremendous color, however:
Application was reasonably smooth, though I found I did want three coats to even it out perfectly. Even so, for some reason, this polish seemed to dry quickly: you can probably see some faint brush marks in the surface.
Don’t be put off by its awfulness on me: on the right skintone, this could really complete certain outfits! The pearly shimmer is a nice, subtle touch.
I actually kind of dig this, even on me…am I crazy?!
