Beep Beep...

When I first laid eyes on the promo photos for OPI's Touring America I wasn't impressed! My opinion quickly changed when I saw this gem in person. To feed your lacquer craving I bring you OPI Honk if You Love OPI (hence the corny blog title).

Honk if You love OPI is a red based dark purple creme with a high gloss finish. It's so glossy it reflected the light fixture I use which proved impossible to avoid. Application with this creme is perfectly smooth and has good coverage in two coats with no streaks. I find this color refreshing for fall and I couldn't wait to wear it, so below I tried to lighten its appearance with some polka dots.




The first set of polka dots I wanted to be a lighter purple shade. I used OPI Rumple's Wiggin' from the Shrek Forever After Collection. This soft lilac turned out to be just the right amount of contrast I was looking for!




For the second set of polka dots I overlapped the first set using OPI Skull & Glossbones from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. This shade reminds me of the toy "Silly Putty" that would come in the red egg container.




Disclosure: This lacquer was purchased by The Lacquer Factor.
