It’s quite rare that when a polish makes it’s way into my collection, I actually get around to wearing it almost instantly – let alone actually managing to photograph it ready for review, but that was the case for one of OPI The I’s Have It, a one which made it’s way into the collection in the past 2 weeks.
Not only is it rare that a fast review turn-around happens, this is a rare that I gravitate towards this kind of shade. I love wearing really bright blues and cobalt toned shades, but it’s rare that I choose paler shades, but something about this drew me in, and I’ve fell in love. Not only that but I’ve worn the shade twice in a row, basically unheard of.
As a child I absolutely loved Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, despite all my family hating it – it was always my choice of VHS when I was watching things alone, I remember this because everyone used to moan the whole way through it, and it used to distort idyllic vision of the wonderland that they were in. I had a few polishes from the first Alice in Wonderland collection that OPI did when the newer Tim Burton film released a few years ago, but the latest collection I skimmed over it.
I had another polish which I hauled recently here, from the same collection – that I’d heard listed on a few nail blogs and youtube channels as one of their favourites from last year, and I only ended up getting this blue bottle thanks to a 3 for 2 offer that was running at my local CCO.
Thick creamy and almost a one coater – it applies nicely, and the gorgeous “Alice blue dress” colour is topped off the most gorgeous finish. I noticed the first time I painted my nails with it, it’s lovely glossy finish – I ended up not adding a topcoat as it was nice and shiny in it’s own right, but I was a little nervous about how it would last, as some of my cream OPI’s just peel. This lasted 5 days on my nails until I needed to repaint, and actually it was only one hand which came off badly thanks to a heavy DIY session, the right hand other than a few small chips on the corners were pretty much perfect – even no tip wear at all.
This is OPI at it’s best and I’m falling back in love with the brand that made me start collecting nail varnish. I can see this colour becoming a firm favourite for me into Spring, not only do the I’s have it, but the nails do too.
