Oldie But Goodie: OPI On Collins Ave

I've decided to make "Oldie But Goodie" into a new series here on the blog. I do have a lot of older polishes that I've never posted here, so I think I will slowly start to make my way through them. Today's post is OPI On Collins Ave from the 2009 spring/summer South Beach collection. Though I only own two polishes from this collection (this and Overexposed in South Beach), I always meant to go back and pick up some more. I thought it was a pretty good collection.

OPI On Collins Ave is a super bright near neon orange-red creme. I love this kind of color for summer, especially on toes. This particular one is almost opaque in one coat! I did two coats for this post, and let me just say... this is nail polish perfection. It practically painted itself on my nails, that's how easy it was. I wish every polish was like this. Between the opacity, the smooth formula, and OPI's Pro Wide brush, it was heaven.

I totally didn't want to take this off after swatching it, but I had more swatching to do afterwards (boo hiss). I will definitely be wearing this color again soon. I love finding older polishes that rock. Sometimes I get all caught up in the latest releases and forget awesome stuff that I already own.

I love red but am a bit afraid of wearing neons...although I love how they look! ...I've got to try again because I really like how it looks on you!!

Nailderella- this one would be a good starting point for you, as it's bright, but not quite neon! It's really flattering too!

Lesley- I'm wearing it a lot lately! It's a good one!
