Collection: OPI 2017 Winter, Love OPI, XOXO
If I’m honest, I have been getting pretty bored with holiday nail collections in recent years—how many shimmery reds, glittery golds, and spangly silvers does one person really need? But, of course, I can’t often help myself if I see something pretty.
Snow Glad I Met You (HR J01), is a rather ho-hum ivory shimmer from OPI’s holiday collection, Love OPI, XOXO, and yet it found its way into my shopping basket. In hindsight, I should have let it be.
It’s a vintage ivory with a frosty champagne finish. I feel like it looks much more appealing in the bottle, somehow. Look at that warm glow!
On the positive side, the warm tones of this white pair very nicely with my warm skintone. It’s very wearable and quite versatile.
Sadly, it’s a little too streaky to wear as a sheer, and it takes about three coats to achieve nearly-full opacity.
It’s a shame that OPI didn’t do much with this shade to give it more interest. It really falls flat, for me.
Snow Glad I Met You, but now it’s off to the “unwanted” box!
