As Tupac once said, drop the drums, here it comes, only got two minutes to bounce, and every second counts.
I thought about saving this post for Monday until it occurred to me that today might be payday not only for me, but also for some of you guys. So before your hard-earned dollars go to bills, maybe you can squirrel away $20 for the second re-release of one of the most elusive, sought-after cult OPIs, OPI Damone Roberts 1968.
If you read this blog and other nail blogs, then you know aaaaaaaaall about OPI DR1968 and the collector's frenzy surrounding this polish. According to Vampy Varnish, it will be on pre-order on Monday, June 2; there's even a page for it on the Damone Roberts web store, which is the only place that will sell it. There's a reason it sold out twice, once when it was released originally in 2009, and again in 2010, which is when I bought my bottle.
Three coats with SV.
People say this polish is universally flattering, and they are not lying. This shade of green was made to match the walls of the DR salon in New York. It's officially touted as "pistachio" more than mint, and I get that -- this green contains more yellow and brown. It's closer to jade than mint, I think, but I like that it mostly does its own thing.
The formula on this creme could not be more perfect. It's opaque in two coats. My bottle was starting to separate a little, but it was nothing rolling it around for a minute couldn't fix. This is basically a creme lover's dream! I can't say anything about wear time because even after all these years, I can't QUITE bring myself to wear it. I know. Somewhere Janice is like, "OMG WHAT?!" but it's true. It happens with some polishes, as I'm sure some of you know.
I have thick, weird eyebrows -- one grows and arches WAY more differently than the other -- so ever since I was a little girl, I've always wondered what it must be like to have a renowned EYEBROW PROFESSIONAL hook you up. At 27, I am lucky to have found an excellent local salon where I'm comfortable and happy with most of the aestheticians. And while getting my brows done once by someone as famous as Damone Roberts is still on my bucket list, I find that OPI DR1968 is a far more affordable way to remember this. :) Again, as of Monday, June 2, you can preorder this polish for $20 on the Damone Roberts site. Be lucky that you can order on the site -- when I ordered mine in 2010, I had to call the salon. And if your last name is as weird (or weirder) than mine, it was very trying.
Speaking of brows, I have to run -- I have an appointment this afternoon and I needed to be out of the house half an hour ago. I wasn't able to get any posts ready for next week, so don't be surprised if it's quiet around here on Stuff. I'll do my best, but real life has been challenging lately.
As always, thanks for reading! I'll talk to you all again in June. :)
