🌹BEST BURGUNDY: OPI’s Como Se Llama

Hey everyone!

Today I want to present to you one of THE most popular nail polishes in 2018. It was a part of the OPI Peru launch, which was absolutely gorgeous. I snagged this one and have used it probably a dozen times since (no joke). I love it so much, I decided it was high time for a review.

🌹COLOR:

This polish is a very warm-toned oxblood. It is in the toasty winter red family. It can look red in pictures, which makes it versatile. But it’s definitely a burgundy that belongs in a fall collection. It’s not quite brick red since it’s more red than brown.

🌹FORMULA:

This polish has an INTERESTING formula. It is one of the rare polishes in my collection that SUCKS with my usual painting style. If I go in carefully and evenly paint 2-3 coats, this thick polish blobs everywhere and makes me cry. But if I go in freaking STRONG and try to ONE COAT this bitch, it works great!! It’s an easy enough polish as long as you’re willing to do two thick ass coats, with a little dry time in between. You’ve got to show this OPI who’s boss or your day is going to get ruined.

🌹OTHER NOTES:

Another thought is that this is a sister polish to one of my all time favorites (ALL TIME. I mean, maybe #1. Definitely #1 in the non-pink category), Rock N Royale by China Glaze. Post on that baby HERE. This color is a redder version of that one, with a thicker formula.

🌹RATINGS:

As far as ranking this one in my collection, I can tell you right now it’s going to fare pretty well. I saw it ALL over Instagram before buying it, and the Peru collection was a hard line-up to stand out in.

COLOR: 9/10. It could be a touch warmer in my opinion.

UNIQUENESS: 10/10. I have similar ones, but none so bold and vibrant.

FORMULA: 7/10. As an experienced painter, I can make this bad boy work for me.

EASY FOR NEWBIES: 5/10. Don’t buy this one for your 10 year old niece. It’s too thick and may stain cuticles if it gets smeared around.

FALL PERFECTION: 10/10. Pair it with tights and a sweater dress, I INSIST!

REST OF THE YEAR?: Still a 9/10. It’s February now, and it’s looking pretty damn good. Burgundy is a G like that.

What do you think of this color? Would you rock such a lovely oxblood for Valentine’s Day? Or are you going to stick to the classic pinks?

I still haven’t decided, myself.

Have a great day!
