Sephora by OPI: Iris I was Thinner

I wish it would stop raining! It’s been over a week of nothing but pouring rain. We’ve had maybe one sunny day in the last 10. Not wonderful for taking photos and color accuracy. But sort of fitting with how I’ve been feeling lately.

I was surprised when I noticed that this polish hasn’t been blogged about here on Death by Polish. Just because I know Lauren and I both own it. Iris I was Thinner, I actually think this name is quite funny, was from last year’s $OPI collection inspired by flowers. Right up my alley. (One of my favorite polishes, Leaf Him At The Alter, is from this collection!)

Medium purple creme. A bit more grey-ed out in real life

I was thinking about how I hadn’t worn a purple polish in a while. Then I thought about it and realized I have recently blogged about two other not only purples, but cremes as well. Haha, I guess I’ve been slightly aloof. Iris I was Thinner has a very nice balance of being saturated and noticeable, but not too loud. It has a certain darkness to it. The tone of this polish is really nice and is floral-y and seems very natural. I would say it’s more red based than blue.

Shiny, glossy finish. A little darker in color in real life.

The formula on this is also great. I only needed two coats for full coverage. I like that the finish isn’t too dense. It’s a creme, but almost one of those half creme half jellies. It goes on smooth and has a shiny, glossy finish. I always prefer when cremes have this finish and formula. You get to skip the goopy, thick formulas.

Where to Buy: Online Retailers / $ 9ish

I don’t know what it is, but my nails have been a pain lately. They have been peeling at the tips. I gave them a serious buff yesterday. And around my nails has been getting dry rather easily. I find this strange since it’s warm out now and I had NO problems when it was 20 degrees out all winter. I don’t think Lemony Flutter is doing it for me anymore. I’ve also been having serious wear issues. 😦

  1. My kind of purple. 🙂 Does it dry a little dark or is it just the photo?

    Interesting to hear other people’s hands are dry too. Mine-and especially the cuticles- look like s**t even though we’ve been having near-summer weather lately. What’s up with that?

    • I think it does have some depth to it when it dries. The color for some reason really takes me by surprise because there’s something about it that is SO pretty even though it’s just a medium purple creme.

      I have no idea what is up with my finger tips! It’s so weird because it’s not even my cuticles, but the skin around them. We need to find a solution ASAP.

        I am having that same problem. I keep getting hangnails and I never have had them in the past. My cuticle are fine though just the dry skin around the edges. I hve been using the polish remover pads recently, hmmm.
