First, my apologies for the sub-par pictures of this polish. I'm away from my lightbox, and the sun hasn't made an appearance where I am this week in several days. I did what I could with the lighting I have available to me, sorry about that!
So here we go. This is one of the OPI Ulta holiday exclusive polishes, Speak for Your-Elf! It's a cooler toned red with a glass fleck finish. Is it unique? No, not really. But I've learned my lesson with Ulta OPI exclusives the hard way, so I went ahead and picked this one up.
This is two coats. I struggled with the application on this one a little bit, but I don't think it's so much the polish as the brush. My nails are narrow, and I always make a mess with the OPI Pro-wide brush. I know a lot of people love it, but the brush is wider than my pinky nail, so it makes it a little tough.
All in all, it really is lovely... just not terribly unique. I've read that the other OPI Ulta exclusives this year are pretty easily duped as well. I think it's kind of a shame that they're not making more of an effort to make these limited edition exclusives more unique, though I guess that my wallet is happy about that.
So there you have it. Pretty, but do you need to run out and buy this one? If your collection has as many glass flecked reds as mine does... probably not!
Happy Monday, folks! Hope you all are staying warm and not running yourselves too ragged as the holiday season gets into full swing!
