OPI Brand New Skates

Okay, I finally got the one polish I was missing from OPI Holiday in Toyland- Brand New Skates.

This one was worth waiting for. It's beautiful! Have a look for yourself:

(Please click to enlarge.)

It's beautiful, isn't it? It's a deep silver or metallic charcoal grey base loaded with multi-sized gold and silver shimmer. In certain lights it even sparkles with a little red! It's a little bit sheer- this picture is three coats, I usually only do two but this needed a third. It applies so smoothly that a third coat won't give you any trouble. It also dries very fast. It's a fairly unique color, too- after looking through my stash I've noticed that there are no matches!

So, Brand New Skates = AWESOME

  7. From all toyland collection nail polishes i find this one kind of unattractive for me.
    The Toyland collection is amazing but this color dosent work for me

    either way-Scrangie you have the most perfect nails!
    Thanks for he post.

  8. This is like a holy grail swatch, just like Emerald Sparkle :) I waaaant it :) Going shopping in London this weekend so saving my pennies. If I can't find it in Selfridges department store, I will have a tantrum and then order it from ebay from my mobile phone :) Thanks for all your swatches Scrangie, you're the best!!

  9. This is way to beautiful. I love it! I also love the fact that there are others out there who loves nail polish like I do!!! BTW, you do have very nice nails. I'm jealous. :-)

  10. I never stop staring at my nails when I wear this! (it drives my boyfriend crazy when i'm supposed to be driving) I have two bottles- there were extras on sale at my Ulta- i don't know how this didn't sell out- but i'm glad b/c i get more bottles for a cheaper price!

  11. Nitzan, awwe I'm so sorry! But thank you :)

    Lina-Elvira, it's so hot, I hope you find it! Thank you :)

    Denny, why thank you :)

    Mimi, yay! I hope this color stays part of the permanent line this year!

  12. I have this color! It is my favorite OPI

  13. I'm so glad I bought the full bottle of this polish. I took one of my nails to a 4th coat, and it was really worth it. It ended up looking like graphite sparkling in the sun.

    What a beautiful color!

  14. Found this post while googling for a swatch to show a friend, and I know it's old... but... you MUST put a matte topcoat over this polish. It looks like gold-flecked pavement when mattified.
