OPI - Manicurist of Seville

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!  Happy Tuesday!

This Twinsie Tuesday, we are to share our most hated and/or unflattering polish.  At first I had a hard time figuring out what I was going to do for this post because if I hate a polish or find it unflattering, I get rid of it.  What's the point of keeping it around.  So I decided to go with a polish that I remembered trying once before and I wasn't wowed by it.  It does absolutely nothing for me on the nail.  As a matter of fact, as I write this, I really don't think it's flattering on me either.  Idk, you be the judge!

OPI Manicurist of Seville is a polish I picked up at Duane Reade, not because the color caught my eye, but the price did.  It was 50% off, making it $4.  I don't even know how to describe the color.  Plum? Wine?  Not sure.  The formula is excellent!  It's a crelly finish and goes on so easily.  It's fully opaque in two coats and dries fairly quickly and to a shine.  The pics below are two coats with no base or top coat.

I don't think this is a horrible color.  It's just blah!  I'll have to come up with a plan for this one.

  2. Oh, I kinda like it on you. I understand what you mean though about it not wow'ing you. If there was just a tad more purple and less red, I think it would look amazing on you.

  5. I also think this looks nice on you, but I can agree there is no wow factor. This looks like one a former coworker used to always wear. I mean if her nails were not clear this was it. She thought it was cutting edge haha.

  8. I like this color but I think you should have either a touch bolder or a touch darker. Don't dislike it on you though, but that's because of your pretty nails ♥.

  18. I actually like this polish! I think it's 'plain' but flattering. And you can't beat the price. I'm a sucker for clearance polish, even if I don't love it lol

    1. Me tooo!!! Even if I don't see myself wearing it, I pick up a clearance polish. Just because, lol!

  19. I like this on you quite a bit! It may not be terribly unique but it has kind of a vampy lean to it that I like.

  22. It is stunning on you, I love theses deep red wine colors go nice with a real glass of plonk!

  23. I do like this color! It would probably look better on you if it was warmer toned. But I don't think it's that bad. Maybe a little glitter could fix it!
