test driving....Skinny Dip'n in Lake Michigan

with spring approaching, i went on a quest for a good nude nailcolor. nude is harder to pull off than what you might think for lips AND nails, but i had heard good reviews about OPI's Skinny Dip'n in Lake Michigan. it's a peachy-brown nude with subtle sparkle.

it's hard to give this a grade, because it depends entirely on what you want this nail polish to do for you.

as OPI always does, it delivers even coverage and quick drying. with one coat, you get a nice "blur" on the nails so that they look manicured, but almost any beige/pink sheer polish in a french manicure kit can do the same thing.

here's my two main problems with this polish: i wish there were more sparkle, and using more than one coat turned orangey on me (as it did for the beauty couch )

i'll give it a C, because i'm not in love with it, nor do i despise it. i find it average.

is it even possible to be in love with a nude? my quest continues.....
