Sephora by OPI - Special Request

Hi everyone!!  We're almost at the end of the week ;0).

Today, I am sharing a polish that Amanda from Fashion Footing sent to me.  We had a mini swap about a month ago.  Special Request is the first and only Sephora by OPI polish I have.  It is a coral crelly that is pretty sheer.  While I love the color of this polish, the formula isn't that great.  It applied very streaky, even after the 3rd coat.  There was also still VNL.  It did dry quickly and to a shine though.

In these pictures, I used 3 coats of Special Request with no base and top coat.

I really, really love this color, but I'm disappointed by the formula.  This polish will be going in my water marbling pile.  Yes, I have a pile, lol.  Hopefully, it will work well and I'll still be able to get pretty manicures using it.

What do you guys think of Special Request?  Do you have this or any other Sephora by OPI polishes?

  1. Great color! Shame about the formula though; I've never tried a SOPI before so I hope they're not all like that :/

  3. This shade is great! Too bad the formula is questionable. perhaps you have a shade that your could layer under it to eliminate the VNL?

    1. Isn't it pretty?? Yes, I could possibly layer it, but I'd still have to deal with the poor formula. Not sure it's worth the trouble :(.

  4. This polish looks like a salsa dance in the summer on your nails - LOVE IT! :D Shame about the formula, though.

    Hmm...the only Sephora by OPI polishes I have are Metro Chic and Caught With My Khakis Down. I love both!

  6. Pretty color, but I'm not sure how good it would look on me. I don't have much experience with corals or reds. It looks good on you though! Too bad about the formula.

    1. It's a mix between a creme and a jelly, but closer to a jelly.

  13. The red really suits you, shame the formula was off and that is a great idea I will have to have a pile for things like that :)

  14. Too bad for the formula cause this color was made for your skin tone. Now you have an excuse to do a water marble! Can't wait to see!
