OPI’s Shim-merry Chic

I am kicking myself for not buying backup bottles of this color! I bought it and Ginger Bells as a set, from an etailer…and left them alone for a while. I initially saw Shim-merry Chic and thought: oh, great, a glitter polish. I don't love glitter polishes. And…it looks like it's got green tones? Yeah, I'll leave that one sit and get around to trying it out whenever.

And now I'm kicking myself because I didn't try it out sooner, so that I could buy it while it was still available from places BESIDES Ebay sellers.

It's like a cooler, aged version of Warm and Fozzie if that color also had opalescent flakies, in addition to the glitter. And of course it's discontinued, and your chances of picking up a legitimate bottle are somewhat slim.
