OPI Short-STOP! coverIt’s no secret that I’m kind of a baseball junky. I love many sports, but baseball was my first sports love and therefore holds a special place in my heart. So, to say the least, when I saw OPI was doing a collection with MLB I kind of freaked out. I immediately decided to order the mini set which includes 6 of the 7 polishes from the Fashion Plate collection (Right Off The Bat is the missing polish).

Short-STOP! is a warm medium red creme. The color isn’t anything particularly special but I have to say the formula is wonderful. I used two coats on all my swatches.

I can see where OPI was going with this polish. Red is a color that is associated with a ton of teams. I can definitely see myself using this in my next Atlanta Braves manicure! Plus, I just really love the name.

If you’re a baseball fan and one of your team’s colors is red Short-STOP! is a definite must have. Otherwise, Short-STOP is probably a polish you can pass on.

I haven’t seen this collection in stores yet but the display should be showing up soon! I ordered the mini set from ebay.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump!

  1. I haven’t seen them either but one looks to be just the perfect blue for my Chicago cubs . I know … I know … but this could be our year !!! 🙂

    1. Hey, you never know! My Braves aren’t exactly highly touted this year but that’s the awesome thing about baseball…anything can happen.

  2. Not a sports fan or a fan of orangey reds, but it’s cool that OPI attempts to make color meaningful by creating and naming colors around things that people can relate to.
