I recently swapped for a OPI by Sephora or Sephora by OPI (they show it 1 way on the web and another on the bottle) nail polish. I swapped for it sight unseen and I must say I am quite pleased. I received "I'm With Brad". Hey, at least they are still being somewhat clever with the names. But personally the only Brads I have ever known have been total Jackasses and I doubt I would ever be "with" them, but I decided to overlook my prejudice of all things "Brad" and go with this polish. I'm glad I did.
"I'm With Brad" is a lovely almost vampy shade that sparkles in the sunlight but looks subtle enough under fluorescent lights to wear to the office. Sephora describes the color as "Shimmering Wine over Dark Coffee" Read=Red shimmer over dark brownish black! I would suck as a color describer. I like to tell it how it is.
The polish applies well, like most OPI polishes, but I will say it definitely needs a good 2 heavy coats, or even three if you want real depth to the color. The first coat looks like a sheer grayish-black with red shimmer, but once the second coat goes on the real beautiful color begins to develop. It does not streak and dries fairly quickly.
I like the wear of this polish. It does not fade and after 3 days no chips! I'm pretty hard on my hands so anything that lasts 3 days makes me happy. Your mileage may vary.
As I have about 10-15 black/gray/charcoal/graphite colored nail polishes this is a nice and refreshing addition. But those with other shimmery wine colored polishes may just want to pass. this one is easily dupeable.
Oh and just so you know. I completely suck at applying nail polish. I was so excited to have an almost decent application to take a picture of on a sunny day. I thought I would add a light coat to my nails before taking a picture and look what happens.
I suck. :-)
