We the Female is one of three reds in the OPI Washington D.C. collection and is the darkest of the three. It's a really beautiful shade of deep wine-red (OPI describes it as garnet, which is pretty accurate). The formula is really good, so it went on easily without any streaking or patchiness, even on the first coat. I think it would suit most skin tones it's the shade that Kerry Washington is wearing in the promotional photos and even though my coloring is much lighter than hers, it looks very flattering on me, too.
Berry-marsala color rich, classy, mysterious! The color I've been longing for (since I missed out on the Chicago collection of Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ). Not sure what marsala is? It's a mixture of red, brown, and burgundy; warmer than typical a "wine" color. See the color of her dress in this packaging:Full Size ImageIn the store, I didn't see the berry color hidden within. See, I have Lost on Lombard, love it, have a backup of it, since I love it so much. And honestly, in the bottle, it seemed to be a dupe which is fine by me, *because I love these colors*. But then, you put in on the nail, and viola, there's the touch of berry. Side by side, seem like dupes, but they are not. Lost on Lombard is warmer, has that touch of chili/brick red.Full Size ImageYou can see the difference when they are upright.Full Size ImageFormula is fabulous, and almost crellish.... like 1/4 jelly, and 3/4 creme. I think I could have had perfect application in one coat, though I always prefer 2+ coats, depending on the formula.Who would it be good for? Just about everyone, unless you are very fair and like that dark contrast. I have warm skin, and can't wear Malaga Wine (too vampire-red, plus it is a huge mess to remove anyway). But this one is absolutely perfect!!! (It's lighter sister, OPI by Popular Vote, is nice too, although quite different. Think Ginger and MaryAnne.)If you have been wanting a color like this, you will not be disappointed. I would seriously consider buying a backup of this on the next buy 2 get one free sale at either Ulta or Beauty Brands, using the $3.50 off coupon, too, of course (that way, they wind up being about $5 each). Hope this helps!
This is one of my all-time favorite polishes. Beautiful classic red but it has an extra depth to it that is hard to describe but makes is amazing. I first got this at a nail salon and instantly decided that it was my new go-to red, only to be disappointed when I realized it was a limited edition color. "I'm Not Really a Waitress" is close, but without that same depth of color. Definitely buy this one if you happen to come across it!
One of my all-time favorite polishes for my toes. I feel a bit silly wearing any bright blue, green, etc. polishes because I personally feel too, ummm, advanced in age for those, but this is the perfect compromise for me. There's enough gold in there (depending on lighting, of course) to keep the color from screaming green, but enough to make this the extremely unique shade it is.Even though I've had the same bottle for a while now, it still applies beautifully. This one is a keeper for sure!
This is my first duochrome polish, and it makes me want so many more. I love watching the shift! The gold base color is definitely the stronger, but the green shift is there too at the right angles. The colors work well with my warm skin tone and feel very autumnal, which is great right now. The formula is thin and a bit sheer, but it applies very evenly and it dries fast. Wearing it on its own I needed three coats for full opacity. But I discovered that it really looks great and enhances the color shift to wear it over a dark base. I needed just one coat over China Glaze Exotic Encounters to get a really great look.This is also my first OPI polish, and I'm not sure yet how much I like the wide brush. I think it works for this polish because of how thin it is, but I have small hands and don't grow my nails very long, so I worry about ending up with too much polish for my nails.
