O.P.I My Address Is Hollywood - Swatch and Review

You may or may not know but October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so in support of that I chose to wear a pink polish.

This is O.P.I My Address Is Hollywood.
It's a lovely salmon pink (coral?) creme with a very fine golden shimmer running through it. The shimmer unfortunately doesn't really show up on the nail :(
It applies okay I guess but I was never quite satisfied (it kept looking patchy or streaky or I could see brushmarks) so this is about 4 or 5 coats. A bit extreme I know but oh well, I think 3 would have been okay if I actually took my time to apply it precisely. Ah I love the names of O.P.I polishes, they're so random!
One very good thing about this polish is that it dries very fast and smooth.
Okay here's a confession: I have NEVER bought a full price O.P.I. I simply can't afford it! I mean seriously, £11 a bottle! I've either got them from TK Maxx as part of a set or bought them when they were reduced in Sally's. I <3 Sally's and TK Maxx

Thanks for reading x

    1. Definitely!! And I often find that they're the only places to find brands that aren't widely available in the UK
