I have this really weird interest in natural disasters – tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes… I know it’s strange, but if it makes you feel any better, it’s been a lifelong interest. So, I think it’s pretty obvious why I was drawn to Go with the Lava Flow. Because… lava.
OPI describes Go with the Lava Flow as a golden red but I’d describe it as a shimmery coral. It’s much more vibrant on the nail than in the bottle – I actually passed on it twice at Ulta because it just looked boring and dated. The shimmer is really fantastic – especially in the sun. It creates a juicy sparkle that I’m absolutely loving. I had no trouble with application – just two coats et voila! While it isn’t overly unique, I don’t think I have a match for it – if you’re on the fence, I don’t think you’ll regret adding this to your collection. It’s going to get a LOT of wear time this summer.
While, I love this polish AND I love the name – I’m not sure if it’s a match made in heaven. Go with the Lava Flow looks more like a beautiful Hawaiian flower than something that came from a volcano. I think Go with the Lava Flow would have been a better name for Aloha from OPI. I’m just nitpicking here, the polish is great.
The Hawaii collection is currently available at Ulta. You can also pick up Aloha from OPI on Amazon or if you just want a taste of paradise, pick up the mini set (which is quite a deal from Amazon) – it doesn’t include Go with the Lava Flow, but it does include my favorite polish from the collection: That’s Hula-rious!
Since I shared my weird fascination with the more destructive side of nature, do you have any weird or quirky interests?
