Fanatics, you are going to FA-LIP over the latest OPI collaboration. They’ve teamed up with Damone Roberts, “The Eyebrow King”, to create a signature shade based on the wall color in his salons. If you’ve ever seen some of his transformations on TV you know why everyone who’s anyone in Hollywood trusts this man with their eyebrows.
I’ve been following Damone on Twitter so I could make sure I didn’t miss out on this fab shade and it paid off. Not only did he alert his fans about the on sale date but he shared TwitPics from the promo shoot for the polish. I placed my order last Thursday and the little beauty arrived yesterday. Check it out!
My affinity for green polish can never truly be quelled but I’m pleasantly satisfied at the moment. Damone Roberts 1968 is THE minty green hue I’ve been looking for. While other polishes I’ve tried in this realm have been too blue, too pale or too sheer, this one is perfectly pigmented. Damone describes the shade; “It is not your typical mint green. It has a little touch of gray in it and a little touch of brown.â€ I applied three thin coats that dried smooth, glossy and a shade darker than the bottle color. Color me in LOVE!
AND it makes a stellar matte. I used Nubar’s V For Men Matte Finish Nail Protector to create this gorgeous bisque-like finish.
I knew comparison questions would be the first ones out the gate so I’ve shown DR1968 next to the closest shades in my stash. As you can see, Hey Get In Lime and MAC Peppermint Patti look extremely blue next to DR1968. If anything, I’d say it’s a 2nd cousin to Illamasqua Milf with DR1968 being a deeper, more intense version.
OPI Damone Roberts 1968 is limited edition and available for order NOW so I’d jump on it if I were you. You can purchase it directly from one of Damone’s salons over the phone. The polish retails for $9 plus shipping ($3.95).
Call the NYC salon at 212.764.4755 or the Beverly Hills salon at 310.271.2100. It is supposed be listed online in the Damone Roberts Amazon Store but it’s not up yet. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
So what do we think Fanatics? Are you drooling over the fabulosity or what??
