Howdy all! Before I post my first polish sale, I wanted to share some photos of an awesome shade that I recently came across. This is OPI’s Love Me Tender from the Elvis-inspired Summer 2005 collection “All Shook Up.” I tried it last night for the first time and needless to say, I love it! It looks gorgeous, especially in the sunlight. Just so you know, I braved the 95 degree weather with a sweltering heat index of 105+ degrees to capture this unique polish for you. I hope you realize how much you all mean to me. Now onto the goodies!
Love Me Tender consists of the old, non 3-free OPI formula with the non Pro-wide brush. It’s a peachy pink coral color with a gold shimmer prevalent mostly in the sunlight, but under brighter indoor lights as well. It looks like a light peachy pink when the gold isn’t highlighted. These pictures were taken in the sunshine to capture its awesomeness. Any pictures I took inside turned up blurry and useless.
I’ve heard people say the old OPI formula is easier to apply than the new 3-free formula. I have several black label OPI’s but I haven’t used them enough to come to my own conclusion on that front. However, Love Me Tender applied pretty flawlessly and without any streaking! I got full coverage with just 2 coats - I didn’t have any trouble making it opaque. For myself, I prefer the non Pro-wide brushes because I have small, stubby hands and nail beds. Therefore, I make a lot less of a mess on the surrounding skin polishing with the thinner brush.
Hopefully I'll get around to posting my first polish purge within the next day or so, so stay tuned! Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
