Beautiful light coppery shade but like many OPI metallic shades I find this chips very quickly and easily. Would not repurchase.
To my surprise, I actually really like this. At first I just wanted to pick up Meet Me On The Star Ferry, but I couldn't stop looking at the swatch for Chicago Champagne Toast so I grabbed both. It's a very pretty dusty rose pink with a mirror-like shine minus the sparkles very work friendly. I can understand the "old lady" reviews because even though I'm young, I'm still hit with nostalgia each time I look at the bottle I'm sure I've worn something like this before in my teens. That being said, this does not in any way look old on me or age my hands. I think it looks super classy and elegant a sophisticated kind of pink. I particularly like how this looks in low light like a soft baby pink. Formula is good two coats are needed for complete opacity but somehow I can't avoid visible brush strokes. It's also super easy to remove. Definitely a staple in my collection!
I bought this recently and painted my toes. I don't find it's an old lady colour at all. It's a really pretty, multi-dimensional bronzy-pink that looks great with a bit of a tan. I do find, however, that if you have any ridges in your nails at all it does make them stand out. I took one lippy off for that. Otherwise, goes on great and looks really pretty.
I had bought a bottle of Chicago Champagne Toast years ago that I recently threw out because 1) it was really old and 2) it was made back when OPI polishes had the three harmful chemicals in them (formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene). I picked up this newer version of Chicago Champagne Toast this morning at one of the local Krogers that have recently started selling OPI polishes. I like this color much better than the original version. This one is less "pink" than the first one and I just like the color better plus none of the harmful chemicals like before. I got pretty good opaque coverage with just one coat, although I went ahead and applied two. No visible nail line because although this is a light color, it is also opaque. No brush marks at all. Just a nice pretty champagne color with just a slight pink undertone. It's a nice neutral color with lots of shine. And a nice change of pace from all the dark colors I've been wearing this winter.ETA: well ive come to realize that this np tends to change color depending upon what lighting ur in. in brighter light theres just a hint of pink while being mostly nude/champagne colored. in other lighting, it is definitely more of a light pink and in somewhat shady lighting, i can see more of a mauve tone to it.
When I moved to Chicago, I bought the entire OPI Chicago set, and this is my favorite. I absolutely love this color, a nice blend of pink and gold that just shimmers beautifully. On the downside, it does leave brushstrokes, and I will admit that if you leave it on too long, you will start to look down and think "Wow, this kind of is an old lady color" but once you freshen it up, its back to being classy and gorgeous.
