Wait a second – what’s this?! A HOLOGRAPHIC nail polish – and a white back ground?! What’s going on?

Swatch of OPI – German-icure by OPI

This, ladies and I hope a few gentlemen, is one of my all time favorites from OPI and the last one for this swatch race – German-icure by OPI. It’s a perfect dark shimmer red with a depth and glow I’ve never seen in any polish so far (Smolder by ORLY is close, though!). Again, …
