When I met Kejal in Mumbai, we did a little swap (actually a big one!), and she gave me this duochrome polish from a brand called O.P.Y. Let me state here and now that I didn’t buy it….
I think it is utterly hilarious, and have since started my own computer brand, called epple. Seriously though, there are some people who don’t even bother to pretend that they didn’t mean to infringe on copyright issues. In any case, I couldn’t ignore what is inside the bottle, because it is super pretty!
The basecolor for this manicure is BB Couture Golf Pro. I have the feeling that BB Couture doesn’t get the attention it’d deserve. Most of their colors are really awesome, and in terms quality, they’re surely on an OPI level (if you ask me.).
Luckily I wore this polish when we were staying at a hotel with a pool! You know how duochrome polishes photograph better under water, so I decided to make a big fool of myself and photograph my hands in water. Most of the other people at the pool thought I was completely out of it.
What makes this polish special is that it changes from a dark green polish to a lavender, at certain angles even to gold. I have never seen a duochrome like this before. Yes, green to purple, been there, done that. But dark green to lavender and gold? It’s for sure new to me.
So, what do you think?
