It’s no secret I’m a fan of Pretty Little Liars. In the past I’ve done an Ashley Benson inspired manicure as well as a recreation of one of her manis from the show. This was all a really long preface to a funny, yet morbid little story.
Years ago when I was watching the first episode of Pretty Little Liars and saw the opening credits my first thought went something like this: Oh my gosh what nail polish do I want to be wearing when I die!
Morbid, I know! But I immediately texted Katie and told her that along with her other pre agreed upon duties when I die she was to make sure OPI Louvre Me Louvre Me Not was on my nails before burial! She immediately agreed. These are the things best friends are for, right?
Anyway! Louvre Me Louvre Me Not was originally released in OPI’s Fall 2008 La Collection de France and is one of my all time favorite polishes. In the bottle it’s stunning. On the nail it’s even better!
Louvre Me Louvre Me Not is a gorgeous red based purple packed with red and purple shimmer.
The formula is a bit thin due to the fact it’s one of those jelly creme hybrid formulas. While this means three coats are required it gives the polish quite a bit of depth.
OPI did add this to their permanent collection (yay!). It’s pretty easy to find in stores and is also available online at drugstore.com.
Below the jump there are a slew of swatches including swatches in the sun and shade (this polish is quite the chameleon!).
