NOTD: $OPI Metro Chic - Not quite living up to the hype.

Behold OPI for Sephora Metro Chic - the most talked about nail polish of 2008. It sort of looks like dirt. While I don't mind the color of dirt on my nails; I prefer OPI You Don't Know Jaques from the France Collection. YDKJ is more brown and the application was better.

I dont have this one, but I do have YDKJ - I was not impressed by it. Maybe all the hype ruined it for me :)

Hi girls/guys!

Thanks for the comments. I do like the polish, I guess I'd just expected... more? Like it was something special, ya know?

I liked the France collection too; 'Tickle My France-y' was my favorite polish.

Though I love the packaging and the formulation of 'OPI for Sephora', I'm not crazy about the colors. I purchased 'Run With It', which looked like a shimmery Dove Grey under the store's dim lighting, but immediately turned into a flashy silver in the glare of day, as well as under indoor lighting. Yuck.

I picked this up on a recent trip to the US and I really liked the colour on me, liked the way it changed in diff light. I definitely found myself looking at my nails a lot while I was wearing it. I don't have YDKJ tho. Looking forward to seeing your haul from London!

I remember it took me sooo many trips to Sephora to look for this color and it was always sold out.

In the end I was pretty happy with it. And I think it looks great on you!
