…Do we have a purple? I’m confused. The color of this polish in the bottle looks pretty good. A nice, medium toned red purple. I knew from swatches and the sorbet finish that it was going to end up lighter on the nail, but on me it’s not looking how I wanted. Purples are my favorite, so I was looking forward to this one in the sorbet finish.
Now, my camera and the lighting outside did capture this color to be more pink than it actually is. But, this being said, this polish is still VERY pink. At least to me and on my skintone. It is much more berry than I was expecting. It almost is ending up looking like a dark pink based polish with purple rather than a purple. In indoor lighting, I do think this polish is able to lean more to purple and look truer to the bottle color, but it’s still not as much purple as you would expect. It’s also much brighter and lighter.
This close up is a more accurate color of how this polish really looks on me. Yet still, the purple isn’t as strong as I assumed from the bottle and the polish name. The color really shifts to be more pink outdoors and in stronger lighting. It seems to be much more of a pink, berry color. It’s basically a fuschia to me, for sure. I’m just taken back by how this color turned out. Most of these sorbets are very similar in color, and I liked that this one was clearly a different color, but it’s just not purple enough for me. So far out of the sorbets I have tried, this one is definitely my least favorite and has really let me down!
The formula on this was great, as all of these sorbets have been. I love them. It went on easily with three coats, with minimal drying time and only slight VNL. Even though these polishes are very jelly like, there’s something about the finish that seems different than any of the jellies that I have. It may just be the OPI formula, but I have continued to have less patchiness and more even, beautiful finishes. They are so easy to apply.
Where to Buy: Ulta / Dillard’s / JCPenny / Trade Secret / Online Retails (I got mine from Transdesign!) $ 8.50
OPI has been SUPER busy over the winter and has a lot of mini collections coming out in May. Since I ordered my summer Zoya’s (so excited!) I am on a strict no buy until they emerage. I’m looking forward to the New Serena Williams Duo’s A LOT, The Pirates of the Caribbean collection, and even the blue shatters! The turquoise and electric ones look cool…I’m a sucker for blues, apparently even in shatters. Is anyone else feeling any of these upcoming collections?
