OPI Speak for Your-Elf!


OPI Speak for Your-Elf is the Ulta exclusive which was kind of the reason Kaylan send me the lovely package I told about here. I saw swatches of this one poppin' up everywhere and I loooove red polish, including this one!

It did not disappoint in terms of color. The polish itself though... not so amazing. It applied quite tricky since it is a jelly, so you need more than 2 coats (3 in my case). But is also was kinda runny. And since the red stains quite a bit if you try and clean up, you really really have to apply carefully!



































I did love the end result though, but it was hard to photograph. What do you think of this one? I'll probably compare it to China Glaze Ruby Pumps sometime. Curious how they'll compare!

  1. Such a pretty color! Too bad it was hard to apply :(

  2. Very pretty, but I'm kind of annoyed with all the polishes that look like Ruby Pumps or some other form of ruby footwear. I don't know which one to buy anymore. But with OPI it's not that hard. I don't really know what's the fuss about. They're mostly 3 coaters with mediocre formula and a brush that's too big for me. Don't like OPI one bit, but as I said: this one looks really pretty on you. =)

  4. Mooooi!! Maar wat Nihrida zegt; hij lijkt wel erg op Ruby Pumps. Die heb ik zelf trouwens niet, ik heb laatst van Catrice Lovely Sinner gekocht en die vind ik eigenlijk ook wel heel erg in de buurt komen... Ook bij deze OPI trouwens.

  6. It looks really similar to Ruby Pumps (and really pretty!) but with the problematic application doesn't tempt me. Thankfully. ;)

  7. I really like this one. It looks so squishy and juicy and it looks great on your skin tone! Shame about the 3 coats!

  10. This looks soooo pretty!!  I'm so jealous.  I have no Ultas.  Sounds like the formula causes more work though.

  11. Yeah that definitely sucked but the color makes up for it <3.

  12. I can see what you mean, still have to compare them though to see how close they are. The best buy still is China Glaze Ruby Pumps I think <3.

    Too bad you don't like OPI, must say the last few collections weren't great for me either, but they have some lovely golden oldies and the upcoming collection definitely looks hot. The brush is a tad too big for the pinky but the rest can be painted just fine with it.

    Thanks for the compliment :D!
