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, …

Swatch of ORLY – Smolder

Smolder is a deep red metallic polish and so not a spring shade. But guess what, I don’t mind very much! I’m in a stage now where I just love all kinds of classic dark reds and this one falls straight into that category. This polish was a dream to work with; the formula was …
