OPI Senorita Rose-alita

OPI Senorita Rose-alita

I was fortunate to find this gem in a dusty. It was originally part of OPI’s South American Collection from 2002, and it’s become part of its main line, but thankfully, I have an old version, since “old formulas” are generally more consistent. I didn’t think it’d look good against my skintone, but again I was surprised. Maybe I just have no clue as to the base notes of my skintone. Any ideas?

OPI Senorita Rose-alita... don't look at the crummy application 🙂

My manicures, which are always self-done, usually will last 4-5-6 days (unless I change it first) without chipping, so I can rarely comment on the wear of a polish unless it chips the day of or the day after application. And I’m always shocked an disappointed when that does happen. Most manicures, however, generally only last 2-3 days before I change it out. The reasons for this include wanting a change, not liking the outgrowth at the base of the nail and really, the most important reason for me is that … just as paint dries and gets little microcracks, so it happens with nail polish as well, thereby leaving the nail underneath vulnerable to chips and cracks.

Since I have fairly weak nails as it is, even though they grow just fine, I keep them polished to protect from chips and breaks – AND to protect them from ME: As a picker, if they are not polished, I will destroy them. I thought maybe I was REFORMED, but alas, in recovery, as it were, I suppose. It’s something that doesn’t go away.

About Satori

I like soft things. And shoes. And cultures. And nail polish - a lot. I'm an INFP/INFJ depending on the day, left-handed, can understand several conversations in a noisy restaurant from tables nearby and consistently sell myself short. I'd love to become a yoga instructor and aromatherapist. :-)
