The ALU Archives – OPI Cozu-Melted In The Sun

The ALU Archives focuses on older, beloved shades from the All Lacquered Up stash.

So I’m leaving for Vegas on Saturday. If you’re my Facebook friend or follow me on Twitter you know already that I’m going for the CosmoProf show. It’s this huge convention where tons of salon brands come together to introduce their lines and new products. Needless to say I’m uber-excited.

Preparing for the trip got me daydreaming of our next vacation. The Boyfriend and I decided that we’re over cruises so we talked about heading to Mexico with some friends come Winter. I know that’s a long way off but it got me thinking our last trip to Mexico and how I wore one of the OPI Mexico collection polishes, Cozu-Melted In The Sun, so I pulled it out for this week’s Archives. Take a look!

Cozu-Melted In The Sun is one of the few polishes in my stash that The ALU Mom and I both agree on. A lover of all things metallic (bronze, silver, gold, copper, etc), she borrowed it from me and undoubtedly wanted to keep it but I’m not giving this beauty up! Cozu-Melted is a light pinky, peachy, coppery glitz bomb.

The base color is filled with silver micro-glitter that catches the light even indoors. The formula is pre-3Free so it spreads like a dream but is on the semi-sheer side. Even after three coats over a ridgefiller I can still see my tips but I love the shade enough that I can live with it.

OPI Cozu-Melted In The Sun is discontinued but has it listed for sale and I saw some bottles on and as well. As always check out any seller before buying and consider emailing first to confirm availability. Some smaller sites are slow at updating inventory.

Who else has a forgotten bottle of Cozu-Melted in their stash? Or maybe not-so-forgotten? Thoughts?

    Ooooh I LOVE Cozu-melted in the Sun! It was one of the first shades from the Mexico collection that I purchased. I have a cute bronzy pinkish skirt that I like to wear it with and usually get glowing comments when I do!

    This is one of my lemmings as well! I'm hoping that the listing on TD is correct. :)

    I can't believe it. You featured a polish that I actually own! I love this color. It's one of my favorites for the summer because it looks so pretty in the sun. :)

  5. Katharine says:

    Oh! You just reminded me I have this in my stash and I believe I've never tried it out. Looks like JUST what I feel like wearing, too–sparkly and summer-y.

    I've had this shade for YEARS! I have yet to actually wear it! You just made me want to wear it for my trip to Key Largo in August!

    I am just so jealous of your trip to Vegas! Love it – went for the first time last July and again in February. Are you changing polish up again for Vegas – something with more bling and glitter perhaps? Have a blast and if you have time away from the convention, let me suggest you check out the Thunder from Down Under at the Excalibur – ha ha!

    I got a bottle of this in the last couple weeks at Ulta! So you can still find it there, in-line! It's a great color and I wanted to get it for a while. When Ulta had a buy two-get one free sale I finally picked it up!
    Have a great weekend!

    One of my favorite "save" shades. It's the the perfect sparkly, peachy color. I think it was my second OPI color, after I bought "I am not really a waitress" – mostly for the name.

    Lemming this shade. I got 2 others from the MX collection just recently, a tad late in catching up I know!

  14. Mary says:

    I bought this less than a month ago at Ulta.

  15. Leslie says:

    I just got a bottle for Buy 1 get 2 free at my local SmartStyle salon (inside Walmart)! $3 a piece, can’t beat that with a stick! :) Thanks for sharing

    I bought this color recently, especially for pairing it with Great Opera-tunity and Worth a Pretty Penne for some nice designs. They look so pretty together. :) This way I can avoid the tips with Cozu as well, covering it with the others. Is there anyone out there still using this color, or am I the only one?
