This is $OPI Alley Cat, a blue-leaning berry pink. It really strongly reminds me of OPI Ate Berries In the Canaries, released fall 2009 in Coleccion de Espana. I don't have that one, so I can't do a comparison, but they look really similar. This polish had a flawless formula, and I only needed two coats. Also I totally thought this was a creme until I discovered some hidden shimmer.
SEE? Right there on my middle finger? You can even see it in the top of the bottle. $OPI was sneaky with this one.
You may remember that I have a kitty named Alley. Her full name is actually Alley Kat (yes, with a "k;" it's even on her vet records), so I love the name of this polish.
And here's the little monster.
Like this t-shirt dress that I got from H&M recently ($12.95). First of all, ridiculously comfortable. Second of all, I love the emerald color. Especially with $OPI Alley Cat. The jewel tones really complement each other. Also, on my lips is the remains of Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart, which is a bright pink. I'm in love with that product. Perhaps more on that later if you guys are interested.
And lastly, as if this post wasn't long enough already, I tried to figure out if OPI Steady As She Rose might be a dupe for $OPI XOX Betsey.
On the top stripe is Steady As She Rose, and on the bottom is XOX Betsey. Not dupes. SASR is definitely more purple. But I would also say that the difference is negligible if you're not super into grungy nudes (I am). So, the search continues.
Okay, that's all for today. Thanks for stopping by, as always.
