OPI I Can't Find My Czechbook

Day Five of Teal Week.  Can you believe I survived wearing the same color family for so long?  So far, no staining.  I'm mightily impressed.

My third polish this week alone from the OPI Euro Centrale Spring 2013 Collection, I Can't Find My Czechbook was probably the polish I coveted the most the minute I saw the press photos.  I missed my opportunity to own What's With the Cattitude? so when I saw this bright, sky blue I knew I had to have it.

Oddly, ICFMC (ugh, these names) is not quite as blue as it appears in all the swatches I saw before I owned it.  In fact, until I actually had the bottle in front of me, I would've never guessed I could use this for teal week.  However, there's just the right amount of aqua-ness in this creme that makes me think it's actually a nice addition to my teal posts.  I adore how vibrant and fun this polish and yet soft and calming at the same time.  The word "fluffy" keeps coming to mind when I look at it, but I can't pinpoint exactly why.

The formula was perfection and this mani was two smooth coats.


I was actually most worried about this polish causing smurf fingers, but thankfully, my fingers are in their normal vampiric state.  I see myself wearing this as a pedi a lot during the summer; without fear of staining, this would just pop with a pair of gold gladiator sandals, don't you think?  Since you can't really respond in realtime, I'll assume you all have just as good taste as me and are nodding your heads in vehement agreement ;)

  10. This and Vampire Buff are the two I've been most looking forward to, and I didn't know this had a teal lean either--even better! This is so refreshingly cheerful and so, so pretty. I love it, Amanda!!

  11. Those were the two I wanted the most as well and both did not disappoint. I like that this is cheerful without being overly bright. I have a Sally Hansen CSM that's similar to this but it's much more summer-appropriate and neon-esque.
