NOTD: OPI - Brand New Skates

Monday, 17 September 2012


It always takes me a while to ease myself into the usual A/W nail shades, but I find metallics are always a good inbetweener (and generally nice to wear all year round anyway).  Today's NOTD is brought to you by OPI's Brand New Skates, a pretty gunmetal grey with some very fine gold shimmer in.  As much as I love the shade, I can't say I'm in love with the formula all that much.  It's definitely one of the thinnest metallic formulas I have in my collection, and it requires 3-4 coats to achieve a good opacity.  

What are you wearing on your nails today?

  1. I can usually get away with 2 coats with brand new skates, wonder if there's a bit of difference with the formulas from different batches. I like this one with a matte top coat, you can see the shimmer better, almost looks like tiny flakies :) xx
