OPI Thanks a Windmillion

I know I'm late jumping on the Windmillion bandwagon, but Jesus Christ Superstar, this polish is AMAZING.

Gifted to me by my polish fairy godmother, also known as the Lemming Killer, I shrieked when I saw that Marisa had sent me OPI Thanks a Windmillion in my birthday package.  In the bottle, it's really a very basic polish and to be honest, it looks identical on the nail as it does in the bottle.  But there's something so dreamy and cool about a murky, dusty sage green decorating my fingertips.  In fact, Lauren Conrad named Windmillion her favorite spring polish a few months back.  (I ask that you don't judge the fact that I just quoted a star of The Hills.  I am simply passing on information I have gleaned from the universe for your reading pleasure.)

The formula was actually even better than the color.  It almost applied itself in two coats and lasted for days!  Which tells you a few things about this polish: (1) it has a stellar formula with lasting power, and (2) this is one helluva polish if I wore it for more than one day.

Here's the beauty in action.



I found that this OPI looked surprisingly darker on my hands than I would've imagined.  This, however, totally works for me since I'm attempting to slowly segue into my fall colors and I'm a bit mint green'ed out.

So ladies, what do you think?
