When I was a kid I wasn’t like all my other friends who had crushes on members of boy bands or actors. No, I had a crush on Chipper Jones. He was (at the time) the rookie third baseman for the Atlanta Braves. Ah, so dreamy.
Moral of the story is, I have a long history of loving athletes in cleats. So I find the name of this polish particularly cute.
Love Athletes in Cleats is a super shimmery bright red. The shimmer is really pretty. It has a glass fleck kind of feel. This is definitely a warm weather red.
The formula is wonderful. I used just two coats in my swatches.
OPI’s collaboration with MLB is called Fashion Plate and is available at Sally Beauty Supply though I haven’t been able to find it online aside from Amazon. I have the Fashion Plate Mini set. The set includes 6 of the 7 polishes from the collection (the only polish missing is Right Off The Bat). The mini set is available oneBay and Amazon.
As always there are swatches under the jump including a couple of swatches in the sun!
