OPI - My Address is "Hollywood"

Hi everyone!!  First, I'd just like to congratulate Maddy who was the winner of my 300 reader giveaway.  She's already been contacted and has responded.  She is actually the writer of the blog Blattitude Nails.  You can check it out here.  Secondly, thanks for the well wishes.  I'm a little better today, but still need to rest up before I'm 100% again.

Today, I'm sharing an OPI that was on my wish list for some time.  My Address is "Hollywood" is a pretty pinkish/coral (salmon?) polish with gold shimmer from OPI's 2011 Touring America Collection.  I'm so in love with this color!

The formula of the polish was a bit tough to work with.  It was still streaky even after three coats, I had to add a fourth coat to my ring and index fingers to try and even them out.  On the plus side, the polish does dry fairly quickly.

In the pics below, I used no base or top coat.

Please excuse the glitter on my hands.  It was just everywhere from my swatchfest.

I love this color of this polish.  The shimmer just makes it glow.  What I don't like is the amount of work I had to do to get adequate coverage.  I still plan to use it again.  It's so pretty.

What do you think of My Address is "Hollywood"?  Your type of polish?

  1. This is beautiful, I just wish the color was slightly more saturated to make it pop. Maybe layer it over a WnW coral creme first?

    1. More saturation would definitely make it pop. Still love it though.

  7. This looks so pretty on you! Too bad the formula was a bit rough. My sister fell in love with this shade and paid 16.99 for it at a salon!!!!! Yes! I on the other hand have its dupe: Essie "your hut or mine"... Perhaps you'd like the Essie formula better? I did a comparison of the two on my blog a while back

    1. I actually have Your Hut or Mine as well. I'll have to try it soon and see if I prefer it. Thanks for the suggestion. Oh, and $16.99?? That's crazy talk!
