OPI I’m Not Really A Waitress

Oh yes. The polish that started it all. At least for me! This color really is legendary. And for good reason! It’s the perfect red for basically everyone and anyone. INRAW was originally released in 1999 as part of OPI’s Fall Hollywood collection. I purchased my bottle many years later on a whim at Target. It is a black label bottle without the prowide brush.

INRAW is a blue leaning berry metallic red with shimmer. And by shimmer I mean, yes, there’s shimmer, but it’s not in your face shimmer.

Application was perfect! Two coats and it was opaque and streak free. The wear on this polish is also amazing.

This polish deserves all the hype it gets. And I don’t feel that way about most polishes. INRAW is part of OPI’s Classics collection and can be found anywhere OPI is sold.

  9. Recently I ordered at least 14 bottles of Opi. They have the most lovely shades and have very smooth application. I am wearing “Waitress ” right now. It is a beautiful color. It is one of the
    lighter colored polishes I ordered. I tend to go for dark winter type colors; purples, wines,berries, navys, greens all year long.
