OPI Curry Up, Don’t Be Late
I love what I’ve done here. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner. OPI’s Curry Up, Don’t Be Late was a spontaneous internet purchase absolutely ages ago.
I don’t know why I added it, and certainly when the bottle arrived, I doubted my judgement even more. Maybe I was expecting a shimmery opaque gold, as you might think it would be judging by the bottle? What I didn’t expect was a runny, sheer yellow mess, with very few endearing features. No wonder it lived at the back of the untrieds box for so long.
Then, inspiration struck and I felt compelled to try it out as a layering polish.
Here you see Curry Up Don’t Be Late as a topcoat finish over Illamasqua Boosh. I love how it looks – like a bright yet burnished antique gold. So pretty!
In general, I wasn’t a massive fan of the India collection. I found the majority of the polishes to be sheer, boring, or badly manufactured.
I know I’ve featured a few of them on here but to be honest, my heart sinks at the prospect of having to deal with stubby brushes that need a haircut and sheer polishes that need a gazillion coats (check here if you don’t believe me).
So. I suppose the moral of the story is to work with what you’ve got, rather than moan about it. I have now transformed a nail varnish from a nagging “you spent £10 on me and I’m crap” to a “look what an awesome trick I can do”. And for that, I can forgive this polish its utterly stupid and cringewothy name. Just.
