OPI - Teal the Cows Come Home
I've just got a quick post to share with you today as I'm sure everyone is anxious to start their weekends. I know I've got a laundry list of things to do and I'm hoping to throw some fun in there somewhere.
OPI's Teal the Cows come home is just one of the polishes I snagged back when Copious was a thing. Anyone remember when everyone was going gaga for Copious back in 2012? I was able to get tons of Klean Color polishes for just a penny and then they offered OPI duos for super cheap. I don't remember the exact price off the top of my head but I want to say it was under $10.
Released in 2006 as part of the Brighter by the Dozen Collection Teal the Cows Come Home is a pale blue polish with iridescent shimmer. I can't quite tell though if the shimmer is a lighter shade of blue or silver. I know by now that's something I should be able to recognize right off the bat but this one has me stumped. It looks blue in one lighting and then I shift my hand and it looks silver. Either way, it makes this polish sort of sparkle subtly on my nails.
The Application process was a breeze with the polish applying more opaquely than expected but I would still consider sheer. The formula was smooth with the polish flowing nice and evenly onto my nails and also builds up nicely. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat.
I decided to dress things up a bit and went for a little tone on tone stamping to see if I could get some nice contrast. I used the creative shop 02 plate and Heathers Hues Coruscate from the You've got to be Shiftin' Me Collection part 2.
I like the contrast of colors, I just wish I wasn't in such a hurry when I did this. Then I would have gotten a much cleaner image when I stamped. But I guess they can't all be masterpieces of nail art. That's all I've got for today. I hope you enjoyed this blast from the past polish. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
