Throwback Thursday! OPI — Outback Aphrodisiac (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: OPI 2001 Fall, World

Today’s Throwback Thursday was released in OPI’s 12-shade World 2001 fall collection. Some of my all-time OPI favorites were released in this collection: Black Tie Optional, Mat-Adore Red, and Russian to a Party.

Outback Aphrodisiac (NL W22) is another one of these faves. It’s a sophisticated, intensely rich plum cream that’s hits a perfect balance between purple and red.

Because this is an older OPI, I suspect I’ve added thinner to it at some point. I used three thin coats in my swatch, though two was fine—it’s just richer-looking with three.

The finish is still super smooth and glossy. If you come across this shade anywhere, I’d highly recommend picking it up! It’s one discontinued OPI shade I wish they would resurrect.

OPI Nail Lacquer retails for about US$9.50 / CA$12 and is 0.5 US fl oz / 15 mL. OPI nail polishes are currently free of toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor. (Since this polish is pre-2007’s reformulation, it is not 3-Free.) They are made in the USA.

OPI Products Inc. was originally Odontorium Products Inc., a dental supply company. It was purchased in 1981 and soon the company’s focus switched to selling acrylics to nail salons. Nail lacquers were introduced in 1989. OPI has been owned by global beauty company Coty Inc. since 2010. The company is based in North Hollywood, CA, USA.
