OPI: Damone Roberts 1968

My green polish selection is one of my favorites, so choosing one for the holiday weekend wasn’t an easy choice. But then I remembered that I don’t think I had ever blogged about this polish personally. When they re-released this polish a couple years ago, I had to have it immediately. It may not look that unique, but the tone is almost perfect.

Gorgeous sea foam-y green with just enough yellow undertones

Damone Roberts 1968 may look like a common sea foam-y green creme polish. Which a lot of us adore, but companies release these types of colors all the time so usually there isn’t really anything too special about them. But this one has just the right amount of yellow undertones in the base color to make it very pretty AND flattering to wear. There’s no lobster hands here with this light green. I have a lot of yellow in my skin and this polish looks wonderful on.

Slightly streaky formula

The only thing about this polish that isn’t perfect is the formula. It’s not awful, but it is a bit jelly-ish in consistency so I think that is what leads to the issue. It’s not overly pigmented and it is a bit streaky. I used three coats to even out any streaks and to get full opacity. My only tip would be to apply thicker coats and let them dry to really get saturation and pigmentation. But it’s totally worth it, I love this polish.

Where to Buy: I’m not sure! 😦

Do you own Damone Roberts 1968? Did you want to purchase it but missed out? Does this polish look unique to you or is it just another sea foam green? Do you like to wear this color polish?

I think it’s funny that this polish exactly matches the color of my nightstand! So maybe I’m a little bias about it… 🙂

Matching furniture and polish!
