OPI Parlez-Vous OPI?

Two coats, sunlight

Do you speak OPI? This is a smokey purple creme from OPI’s Fall 2008 La Collection de France. I must admit though, one reason why I was attracted to this shade was its name, which made me feel tres chic and conjured up images of me sitting in a Parisian cafe sipping un cafe. I dislike purple shades in general (Barney, anyone?), but this one was sombre enough to catch my attention. It’s still not the perfect purple; that would be a polish that is moodier and a shade paler and preferably named after one of my favourite French haunts.

Here, I alternate the polish with China Glaze’s Light As Air, a pale lilac creme. I think they go quite well together.

I like this look a lot, although it’s so difficult to pull off on my right hand because of my shaky left.
