I’ve been wearing this color almost all week! Sephora by OPI Under My Trench Coat, from the fall collection called Film Noir, I believe it was last fall, 2009. I know that since then, this polish has gotten mixed reviews in terms for a shade of taupe, I also referred to it as a greige earlier this week and we know that color is in right now. I think it can be generally difficult to find the most flattering taupe for your skin tone and obviously this won’t work for everyone, but personally, I love Under My Trench Coat. It’s on the lighter side and it has a really pretty gold shimmer in it.
I used 2 coats here, when you put the first coat on it looks much lighter than you would expect from the bottle. If you wanted a darker color, I’m sure you could get that in 3 coats. The wear has been really great for this, and for Sephora by OPI in general, at least in my case. I barely had chip wear after 3 full days at least, possibly 4, and I had some pretty hefty nail imperfections going on this week. I’m really happy with this polish and it’s another case where I’d like to get more from this collection, I know that this is still available in stores. The polish also went on very smoothly, no issues at all that I can think of.
It’s a really nice, neutral rainy day kind of color… maybe it’s the name that makes me think of that, but I find myself wearing this a lot in spring and in fall. Now that I’ve been wearing a neutral all week though I’m looking forward to something a little brighter.
