Sephora by OPI Metro Chic

OPI by Sephora Metro ChicOne of the popular nail polish colors nowadays is Sephora by O·P·I "Metro Chic". As the name implies it's sold only at Sephora, and therefore not available to a lot of us. Thankfully there are a few other options like eBay, a CP* or even using a redirecting service offering some kind of "personal shopper" like MyUS or other similar companies. I've been watching a few YouTube videos where this nail polish has been mentioned several times as a must-have color, but I never thought it would be a color for me. Sephora describes it as a "dark smoke with a hint of purple", and it's categorized as a gray color. To me it's a lot more taupe, with a purplish undertone, and I really like it.

Last week I got a sample bottle of CND "Cinch My Corset" from a very sweet girl on the Wave. She had gotten the sample with an order, tried it and decided that she didn't want it herself. Her description of the color was that it looked like diarrhea. Not a very flattering description at all, but something made me wonder if a taupe color like that would look good with my complexion, so I asked her if I could have it. Just a couple of days later it arrived in my mailbox, and naturally I had to swatch it immediately. I instantly had to disagree with the somewhat amusing description, because it didn't look like diarrhea at all! It's a lot less purplish than "Metro Chic", and reminds me slightly of milk chocolate.

I had no other choice but to go ahead and add another bottle of nail polish to my collection, the gorgeous CND "Cinch My Corset" in full size. Thank heavens for eBay, I say! I'll be adding some photos of these two colors shortly, also with a small description of each brand and how they apply.
