Today I have a quick post about OPI 4 In the Morning to share with you as I scramble to get things ready for our last minute vacation this weekend. You know how people say procrastination is their middle name, well I have them beat it should be my first name! I am the queen of procrastination. I had been planning this idea for a mini vacation while the kids had a break from school for a few weeks, didn't make the hotel reservations until Monday afternoon. But enough about my bad habit lets get on to the polish.
4 In the Morning was released in January of this year as part of the Gwen Stefani collection. It dries to a satin finish with micro gold flecks. There is a bit of a texture but not enough to be rough. Sadly the golden flecks are hardly visible when dry. A layer of top coat helps to make them pop a little more.
Even though this is a highly pigmented polish I had visible streaks on the first coat, but reached full opacity after 2. An added bonus is that this dries really quickly. I was using it for undies for the Maybelline Veils collection and didn't have to wait for any dry time between layers.
Because of its satin finish, 4 In The Morning is extremely unforgivable with imperfections in nails. As you can see by the dent in my pinky finger. No that's not a dent in the polish, it's a dent in my nail. I guess that's what I get for wearing acrylics for 2 weeks. 3 months later and the dent has almost grown out!
Overall I like this polish. It covers nicely, dries quickly and makes a great base for whatever you want to layer over it. My only complaint is that the gold flecks are really hard to see. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing! I'm off to do more packing.
