I picked this up after several people suggested it may be a dupe for OPI Parlez-vous OPI?. Sadly, while it’s close, it’s not a dupe of the long discontinued OPI favorite. But that’s ok, because it’s a pretty awesome color on its own 🙂
Bite the Bullet is a red based medium purple creme that has the slightest bit of dustiness to it. The color is quite lovely and great for fall.
The formula is a tad bit on the thin side. I used 3 coats in my swatches.
While this color is great, I really do love it, for those of us with a cool skintone this isn’t the best option in this color range. For those of you who have a warmer skintone Bite the Bullet is dare I say a must have? It’s a great fall color and it’s close enough to a neutral that it goes with almost anything.
Below the jump there are swatches of Bite the Bullet as well as a picture of the Bite the Bullet bottle beside OPI Parlez-vous OPI?. The major difference is Bite the Bullet is a red based purple where as Parlez-vous OPI? is a blue based purple. I didn’t think the 2 were close enough to warrant a comparison on the nail.
Anyway! I purchased Bite the Bullet from drugstore.com but it should be easy to find anywhere wet n wild is sold.
