Polish of the Day - OPI Star-ring The Rockettes

Love is a foily pink polish! When the 2006 OPI Holiday collection came out I did not intend on purchasing this color (it's PINK). I was far more interested in Espresso Your Style. But when I went to my weekly allergy appointment I found myself staring at the receptionists nails. I shamelessly asked her what color it was, and a new "lemming" was born.

(For those of you who don't know, lemming = small furry rodent that follows it's neighbor of cliffs, or in makeup terms: an object of intense desire which you obsessively need without logic or reason... and yes, I'm using "need" not "want" in that definition purposely - I do understand the difference)

The Color: It's rosey gold without being gold at all. Just pure pink goodness. I think of this polish as being girly in that rocker-chick sort of way. I love it. I LOVE IT.

The Formula: Almost opaque in one coat, but you probably want two to keep it even.

The Wear: Wears like a dream. Many dreams. Good dreams.

The Bottom Line: Get it if you can! Pester OPI to re-release it!

I wish someone would just go Foil crazy and start making every color under the sun as a foil. I'd buy them all.
