A few days ago, I made the mistake of walking into CVS for a snack between classes. I walked out of there with three bottles of polish, and nothing to eat. Who the Shrek are You? was one of them. They had added an entire new rack of OPIs, and of course I had to check it out and immediately picked up this one. It wasn’t a polish I ever thought I’d buy, but for some reason, I did anyway.
When I got home, I looked at the bottle and thought, “ugh, I’m going to hate this.” But then yesterday, I saw this on someone’s toes and it looked really pretty. Her skin was much darker than mine, so this might just look better on darker skin tones. I’m super pale, even though its summer, but I think I can (kinda) pull this off. Is it an ugly color? Yes. It definitely won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. But I love me some green and I have absolutely nothing like this in my collection.
This is three coats with no base or topcoat. It’s pretty easy to apply. It can be a little watery, but if you’re careful and do thin coats, it isn’t a problem.
This is from the Shrek collection, which I believe came out in 2010. No idea why this was just recently added to the rack at my CVS. You can probably still find this on Amazon, or maybe in a nail salon – I imagine this isn’t used too often. I am definitely glad I got this, and am looking into some of the other Shrek collection colors (I totally fail at not buying new polishes).
What do you think of this? I know this isn’t for everyone, but is this a color you’d consider wearing?
