Iris I Was Thinner- NOT

Surely, there had to be some controversy when naming this polish. Sephora by OPI all I can ask is why? Why in this day and age of women of varying shapes and sizes do you name a polish based on wanting to be thinnner. Really, can I paint my nails without worrying about my weight? Of course I could have just not bought the polish as a protest but I am really not that worked up about it. More of a fleeting thought of tacky name, pretty color.

Anyhoo on to the pics...

The flaws and indentations on these nails are quite obvious but I will address that in a moment. First I will just do a quick blurb on the application of this polsih. The polish reminds me of the composition of my Orly Green With Envy. It seems a bit thin but it goes on nice and smooth. Not a one coater, two if you are great and got the 1st coat just right, and 3 if you are like me and need that last coat to smooth everything out and make sure it is all uniform.

Three coats looked great and I applied my top coat and used my OPI Drip Dry drying drops for the first time. I actually just relaxed and watched TV for a while. Then I went to bed and woke up with these horrendous nails with all sorts of dents. What in the world, what about the drying drops, what did I do wrong!?! GRRRRRRR. These darn sheet indentations are going to be the death of me.


  1. I totally agree with the name of this polish! EVERYONE is dying to be thin INCLUDING me! Bahahaha! But as far as the polish itself... How do you like the opi by Sephora compared to just the O.P.I. Because im a O.P.I junkie and am scared to try this brand lol!! P.S I REALLY hate the drying drops! I LOVE out the door by INM drys REALLY fast.. No DENTS with it! =)

  2. Sigh...weird name! but..Iris i was thinner though! haha ^^
