OPI – You’re So Vain-illa

OPI - You're so Vain-illa (Bottle)I cannot even explain to you how excited we were about the OPI/Coke Collaboration. Alli and I are Coke fanatics. She’s a purest. She drinks Coke and only Coke. So of course her must have polish from the collection was: Coca-Cola Red. Me? I couldn’t narrow it down to just one – I had to have three! I instantly fell for Coke Zero when it was released. I used to abhor the taste of Diet Coke but I eventually became a Diet Coke Junkie.  I love classic Coke as well, but I can only drink one every so often. Diet Coke on the other hand I could take intravenously. But wait… I haven’t mentioned Vanilla Coke. Well, I’ll be honest, Vanilla Coke was never really my thing but I had to order it for one reason…. my Nana.

You see, I absolutely love my Nana she’s 87 and a true Southern lady if there ever was one. She’s a firm believer that your nails should be an extension of your hands. You may remember that her quest for the perfect nude polish two years ago. I tried so many neutrals: OPI Barefoot in Barcelona, OPI Tickle My France-y, Cult Nails Cruisin’ Nude to name a few. The winner? Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect in Dune. Turns out she was looking for more of an off-white than a nude. I know she has to be horrified with my nails sometimes – but she humors me and usually asks what polish I’m wearing. She’s just awesome like that. My point here, of course, is that I know she’d approve of OPI’s You’re So Vain-illa.

Now… onto You’re so Vain-illa! I really like this polish! I’ve been all over the nail polish map lately -but I’ve steered clear of the more neutral shades, so it’s a nice palette cleanser. The color is a perfect match for the Vanilla Coke logo. It is a lovely creme. I used two coats for a gorgeous finish. I love white polish in the summer and I think this is a great alternative.

    Although I love to wear a variety of colors, I totally “get” your Nana’s affinity for nudes!… nothing but nothing looks cleaner and more elegant and flattering than a nude nail! And it goes with everything. Don’t like this OPI one though… when nudes are extremely light like this, plus have a yellowish tinge, they remind me too much of the stained nails of cigarette smokers… that’s just a random personal reaction though, I can see how some would love this shade. .

      Ohhh – I’d never thought of it that way – kind of like old musty books. I’m with you! I really like it though. I don’t have anything like it and I think it’ll be great with glitter or as a nail art base (for someone else… I’m still at pre-nail art stage… polka dots). 🙂 Cheers!

    Beautiful! I need that polish. I am going to be watching for the collection to hit the stores here. I love Coca-Cola too. For a while I had a Vanilla Coke addiction. Since I have broken the soda habit, I will happily settle for the polish. If I could only have 1 polish this would be my choice from the set.

      What’s your go to beverage? I’ve mostly broken my soda habit – it was sooo bad for a while. 5-6 diet cokes a day – easily. I drink a lot of tea now, coffee too. The love of my life is GT’s Kombucha. Yum.

      I love it 🙂 It’s such a nice change of pace. I never really got into Vanilla Coke – I don’t know why. I bought the mini cans of Diet Coke for my post tomorrow and I’m dangerously close to buying some more – eeeek!

What do you think?
