OPI Tease-y Does It

The last time I wore this polish was over a year ago when it came out. It's from the Burlesque collection that way released last winter. I picked it up on clearance at Ulta. The reason I haven't worn it since was because I really did not like it when I first wore it and saw no reason to really wear it again (I'll go into that after the photos). But anyway, here it is. Giving it another shot.

Tease-y Does It has a deep black/brown base with a deep pink/red shimmer with very minimal flashes of a golden shimmer. Disappointingly, this polish looks a lot more dynamic and lovely in the bottle. I should add a disclaimer. Vampy, deep colors are not my favorite. I'm sure that this is an amazing polish for those who like blackened colors. But the bottle shows significantly more shimmer with a dark pink to gold shift that doesn't translate as well on the nail. The shimmer is not very apparent. I tried to get the polish at a ton of different angles to show that there is a bit of shimmer. But I think the first photo is more accurate at how dark and... plain this polish really is. Nothing like the bottle. :(

The reason I didn't like this polish the first time was because I remember I had gone out with a bunch of coworkers and I had at LEAST 3 people comment on my "black" nails. I mentioned it's not black, but in the lighting we were in, you couldn't tell there was anything more to it. It just annoyed me because I spent money on what looks like a "black" polish to other people... and to me. That's why I didn't bother to wear it again.

If you've read my blog, you know I don't like OPIs brushes. Apart from that, the formula was perfect, opaque in 2 coats. It seemed to migrate a LITTLE towards my cuticles, but stopped before it got there. It was kind of funny, actually!

While I wasn't a fan of this polish, I just want to reiterate that if you like these nearly black colors, I'm sure you'd find this one beautiful!!

  2. That is a bit disappointing compared to the bottle picture. :/ Just tried my first OPI recently and, yeah, that brush is rediculously big! LOL I have pretty big nails so it wasn't a problem, but wow.

  3. This is actually one of my favorites! I think it's beautiful, but the bottle is misleading with the duochrome it shows. It was weird when I first wore it because before that I hardly ever experimented with dark colors.

  4. Hate it when shimmer is more noticeable in the bottle than on the nail. This one looks so pretty in the bottle - if only it applied that way! I have quite a few polishes like this.. ones I bought because I thought they were 'special' but turned out to be BLAH once I tried them on.. what a shame ;[

  5. There's another OPI very similar to this one. Royal Rajah Ruby? I think! It looks quite red-and-shimmery in the bottle but never quite translates on the nail, or at least not in the gloomy kind of light we get in the UK most of the time.

    I also have small nails and have a bit of a fight with the ProWide brushes. Always yards of clean up afterwards and for some reason it's always much worse with a bright or vampy.

    Your nails are lovely. Great length and shape.
