Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans

Hello my lovelies! How are you today? There's not much time left till the weekend comes around, so I thought I should share a fun polish with you today. It's my first Sephora by OPI and it landed on my doorstep thanks to an amazing polish angel. Our Sephora doesn't carry this range of polishes and it makes me sad because now that I tried this one, I want more. Please ignore my cuticles in some of these shots. It was from before I left for my trip and I guess the preparations were a little rough on my hands. If you want to know how to not get cuticles like mine, check out this post from yesterday.

Isn't she a beauty? The Sephora website describes this as a "metallic aqua" and they could not be more wrong. First, I think it's more of a teal color but it's very hard to figure the base color because of the shimmer. The shimmer is slightly greener and lighter, making this so interesting. Seriously, it's not one of those boring teal shimmers that you can find everywhere. And it's definitely not metallic. Not even close.

The formula of Skinny Jeans is very good. For some reason I particularly liked the brush, which is just the right size for my nails. No wide brush going on here, like in the regular OPI bottles. I used 2 coats to reach opacity. You have to be a little careful though because the brush still holds plenty of product and you risk getting thicker coats.

This beauty really comes alive in the sun. All pictures are with top coat to make it extra shiny. But it does dry to a shine. I just decided after the Catrice Dirty Berry fiasco that I will always put top coat on to prevent chipping. 

So what do you think about this polish? Would you wear it? I must say I love these types of shades, especially for the summertime! 


  1. Woman, you're crazy!! I would love to have cuticles like yours!! I know you're in health profession, so I know you wash your hands all the time with those drying alcohol based soaps... I don't even want to hear it!!
    And lovely polish! As usual =)

  2. Haha well I'm on vacation right now but thank you. I'm still a germophobe so I wash my hands a lot even at home. And I think this would look great on you!
