OPI Uh Oh Roll Down the Window Swatches and Review

OPI Uh Oh Roll Down the Window
Um, WHAT? I don't know who is naming OPI's polishes lately, but this name certainly appeals to the 12 year old boy humor in me. I usually only let that part of me out to watch South Park - now it gets to come out and play while painting my nails!

I guess this is the color you turn when you don't roll the window down fast enough? *giggle*

This one is from the new-for-Fall OPI Touring America Collection 2011 and is my favorite by far. The other colors are:  Are We There Yet, I Eat Maine-ly Lobster, My Address is Hollywood, Color to Diner For, Honk if You Love OPI, Road House Blues, Suzi Takes the Wheel, French Quarter for Your Thoughts, A-Taupe the Space Needle, Get in the Expresso Lane and I Brake for Manicures.  Scrangie does a great review with swatches of all of them on her blog here.

Regardless of the name, I LOVE the color. My favorites are purples and murky/olive drab/dirty greens and this one makes the olive drab category.  And it's a creme which is my favorite finish. They're easy to work with, easy to remove (sorry glitterati, but I just can't go that PITA removal process for glitters) and for me, just have that classic feel. Even the loudest color seems somehow okay in a creme.

This OPI formula was no different than most - smooth, easy application. Medium thickness. Two coat perfection.  Thankfully, their super-thin polishes aren't colors I am naturally drawn to, so I only have a few of them.

The first photo was taken in direct natural light. As is this close-up...

The next two photos were taken in indirect natural light.

I can definitely see this color becoming one of my go-to polishes.
