This is Home on the O-Range, and it's really more of a coral than an orange. I like how I took a few photos and it looks totally different in all of them. The color in reality is closest to the color in the second photo. Anyway, this polish, named with a ridiculously heavy-handed pun, is old. Real old. Old enough that I couldn't immediately find swatches in a basic Google image search. But it's an orange-leaning coral with gold shimmer. The formula was nice, as old chemical-laden OPI formulas are wont to be. I had no problems with the old skinny brush, and the opacity was lovely. What wasn't lovely was the dry time. My nails are all dented; thankfully you can't see that in the photos.
Now maybe you're thinking: Steff. Buddy, pal. Why would you show me a black label OPI that is practically non-existent on the intarwebz and make me want it? Why? Why would you do that? Well, calm yourselves, because when I saw this one in sunlight I couldn't shake this weird feeling of deja vu. You know why?
This is Home on the O-Range on the left and I Eat Mainely Lobster on the right. And as a refresher, here's a macro swatch of Lobster:
Not dupes, but PRETTY SIMILAR. So rest easy, friends. Home on the O-Range is actually a lemming that is easily slayed. Lobster might not be an exact match, but they're close enough.
Okay, so one more thing. I wanted to try out orange lipstick. So I slapped on a lipstick I've never used but was excited to buy at one time, MAC Morange.
I like to think that with a little confidence I can rock any lip color, but I'm not sure about this one. What do you guys think? These photos are from Friday; I had a lot to do that day, and no one said OH MY GOD YOUR LIPS ARE ORANGE, so I consider this a win. Maybe? I don't know!
So, opinons on the polish? Has anyone ever heard of this old OPI? I don't think I had myself until I opened my big box o' black labels.
