OPI Nail Lacquer - La Paz-itively Hot 0.5 oz - #NLA20
A hot pink perfect for when you’re Bo-livia la vida loca.
La Paz-itively Hot is a well-known, classic shade from OPI. It is a bright shade of hot, Barbie pink cool toned and medium pink with a blue reflect when it hits certain lights. The reflect gives the polish an amazing glow from within and makes the shade even more vibrant. It really pops on the nails. This shade looks amazing as a pedicure, and amazing against a suntan though I think all skintones could pull off this shade. To me, this is the ultimate Barbie shade of nail polish super girly, bright and fun. It has a great formula, fully opaque in two coats and easy to apply. It has great staying power, lasting for around 5 days when paired with base and top coat in line with my other OPIs. I highly recommend this shade, it's one of my top OPIs.
La Pazitively Hot first appeared in the summer 2002 South America collection, and is now part of the core line. It is a Barbie pink shade, with a very subtle blue/violet shimmer. This is a great all-rounder; it looks good on all skintones, is wearable all seasons, and all occasions. I've removed one lippie as the shimmer is a lot more muted on the nails, than what the polish in the bottle promised...The reason that the second lippie removal and why I wouldn't rebuy this shade is because the formula is thin [but not watery] and straddles the line between being a creme and a jelly; I can still see vnl after applying 3 coats, but the formula doesn't have the same look of 'squishiness' that a true jelly gives. I don't mind vnl so usually just wear two coats when I wear this polish, but overall I doubt I'll rebuy this polish due to the not-sure-which-way-to-go formula for a 3+ coater I'd much rather have a full on jelly polish, rather then a middle-of-the-road one. Nail polishes will last me anywhere between two to four days with only minimal wear. But as I'm a self powered wheelchair user I'm tough on my hands and am always catching my nails, so I can't really speak for how long lasting the formula is overall.Ciate Cupcake Queen is extremely similar to this, but has a better formula.
Pretty color great finish, flattering and brightA summer basic.
This is a matte fuschia with purple-blue tones. If you look very very closely there is tiny bits of shimmer. This gives this shade a multidimensional look even though it's a matte. It's true that it only lasts a day but it dries in seconds so I do not mind removing it often and simply reapplying it. I find the color and finish so sexy and unique!
