OPI's "Jade is the New Black" is a newer polish which just came out with the Hong Kong Collection. This color seems to be the "it" color of the season and I know many of you, like me, are drooling over this one!
I went into the store expecting to get some of the Essie Art of Spring polishes but this color immediately caught my eye, and my mom's. My mom saw it and said "You have to get that green!" which I thought was funny coming from a woman who only ever wears mauve on her nails LOL. So I caved and got this and I am happy I did.
The color is unlike any I have in my collection. It's a gorgeous dusty blue tinted green. You might think you've seen this color before but I promise it's pretty unique. Check out "Jade is the New Black" next to some of my favorite greens:
So you can see the color is pretty unique. I really like it.
Formula wise it's a pretty standard OPI polish. I HATE OPI's wide brush, it does not work for me, so that's always a negative for me. One thing I noticed though is that this polish chipped significantly faster than other polishes I own. I mean honestly within one day it chipped so horribly I had to remove it. I was not doing anything with my hands, not even dishes, so I don't know what the issue with this was. I used the Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler, the polish and Seche Vite top coat. So ya, it chipped. Anyway on to the swatches:
So what do you think? Are you going to pick this one up?
