You’re S-Teal The One is one of the polishes from Nicole by OPI Target exclusive collection for Spring and Summer. This was the only polish that really jumped out at me from the ones my Target had recently. Most of the collection seems very bright, fun and summer-ish. Though this color doesn’t really seem like a teal to me.
I didn’t want to take off CG Lighthouse today (I LOVE that polish), but I unforunately have jury duty tomorrow (EW!!) and wanted something to look at. This polish is awesome. The formula is pretty sheer so it sits lightly on your nails, which I am really into recently. I think it’s great for spring and summer. I ended up using three coats to get full saturation and opacity. You might need four depending on how sheer the first coat applies for you. Even though this color is sheerer, it’s still bright and sparkley. It almost has the finish of a Zoya Sparkle but a little lighter. I also don’t really have VNL even though it’s sheer.
As you might have already been able to see, this polish has an awesome purple flash in it! The purple isn’t too in your face indoor but it’s still visible. But outdoors it’s awesome and makes this polish even more fun and special. It’s so pretty. This polish is right up my alley. I love blue and purple. An aqua blue polish with purple flash / shimmer doesn’t sound too unique, but I didn’t own anything exactly like YSTO.
The base color of this polish is pretty similar to Zoya’s Tullulah. An aqua-ish, electric, bright blue. Both of these polishes also have a purple flash to them. However, Tullulah has more of a metallicy or almost semi pearl finish and YSTO is more sparkley, flashy and has a fleck finish. The purple is more subtle in Tallulah. YSTO has a lot more purple going on, which I think I like more.
You’re S-Teal The One is really fun and a great bright blue. I’m really enjoying it. Oh, and also the new Nicole by OPI brushes are really great for application. I’d take a thick brush over a skinny brush any day (I’m looking at you Essie). These new brushes apply and spread the polish really easily. It’s particularly good for me because I have wider nail beds that somewhat wrap around my finger.
Where to Buy: Target / $ 7.50
Hopefully everyone had a good weekend. I’m watching the Hawks and hoping for a win over the Capitals right now!
