OPI’s Countdown to the Kiss

Not exactly 100% original, but a pretty color nevertheless. And I got it on end-of-year sale, which made it even more appealing. Eyes Like Sapphires is a little brighter, and not quite as opaque as this color. Blue Year's Eve is more of a sparkle finish with some glitter particles, where this one is definitely a glass-fleck. (Crystal from <a href=“http://cultoftaupe.blogspot.com” target=“_blank”>Cult of Taupe</a> and I were just discussing how to classify finishes of eyeshadows, nail polishes, and the like. I mentally argued with myself for quite a while before making Glass Fleck its own independent finish designation.) This polish gave me full coverage and a really wonderful color depth in two coats.
