It just so happens this polish is from one of my all time favorite OPI collections; their Fall 2008 La Collection de France. It is the collection that also gave the world another of my favorite polishes; OPI Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not.
Parlez-vous OPI? is a dusty medium purple creme that can sometimes pull a bit gray. This is one of those polishes that’s almost a neutral. It clashes with nothing!
The formula is lovely. I used just 2 coats in my swatches.
Sadly, someone at OPI hit their head and they didn’t add this to their permanent line. I don’t know of any dupes off the top of my head so if you know of a similar polish please leave it in the comments! Nina Ultra Pro Never Glum Plum (aka a better version of Essie Smokin’ Hot) is a good alternative.
Swatches under the jump!
