Sephora by OPI swatches: Absinthe Makes the Heart & Worth My Weight

Here are two Sephora by OPI polishes that I feel just didn't suit me at all... but everyone else seems to like 'em. :P

This is one color that I just had no love for at all. This is a swatch from awhile back (early December, right after my trip to Boston). That's how non-fun I think this color is: I totally forgot that I had swatched it...

Sephora by OPI Absinthe Makes the Heart

I like dark greens, I like multicolored shimmer. It's not an uninteresting polish: it's gold and green shimmer in a darkened moss green base. But on my fingers, it just looked like slightly sparkly mud. In some lights, the green showed up a little bit more and was kind of pretty... but this sort of just reminds me of dead leaf mulch. Sparkly dead leaf mulch but not sparkly enough. :( I also found this polish fairly sheer and had to use four coats to build it up to opacity. A lot of people love this color but I just couldn't make it work for me. :(

Sephora by OPI Worth My Weight

This is a polish that I REALLY wanted to love. Chunky holo glitter and small holo glitter suspended in a gold shimmer and microglitter base. It sparkles like crazy and is right up my alley... excepts it falls in that paler, cooler gold category that never fails to make my hands look weird. It is totally gorgeous up-close though.

I love Worth My Weight.
I must say I can't tell there's any green in Absinthe.
I think they both look good on you.

Huh. I thought Absinthe Makes the heart had more green in it. That's weird...I love Worth My Weight, though. I'm kicking myself for not picking that one up.

I don't like worth my weight, it looks kind of...crusty?

Brooke said...

Worth my Weight is insanely amazing. Like, WOW!

I can see why you're not loving Absinthe, but I think Worth my Weight looks awesome on you.

I think Absinthe would look cool with a matte top coat.

Justine said...

Yeah, Absinthe doesn't deliver enough green or shimmer to fulfill the promises of its color description. Worth My Weight looks chunky up close but potentially dazzling from a normal viewing distance. Do you think you'll keep them?

I still like both and I like 'em on you.
