I liked the format I used last time to discuss the polish, so I'm going to keep going with that.
- Formula: Beautiful formula; 2 coats for full coverage
- Colour: Mid-tone purple on the warmish side. I think it's flattering on my skin tone. It's not always work-appropriate, but since it's summer time, I'm wearing it anyways.
- Finish: Creamy and glossy. I love cremes.
- Uniqueness: Ok, here's where the polish falls a bit short. There are a million similar polishes to this (Orly Charged Up, ChG Grape Pop, RBL Mismas just to name a few). I own American Apparel African Violet, which, while not an exact dupe, is pretty darn close. I have yet to decide which polish I prefer, as I feel I should probably purge one of them.
Below are repost swatches of Funky Dunkey, as well any comparisons I've done in the past.
OPI Funky Dunkey
Comparison: American Apparel African Violet vs. OPI Funky Dunkey - To be honest, this picture makes them look closer than they do in real life, but they are still super super close. The American Apparel is a bit more opaque (almost a 1 coater), and the colour seems to have a bit more red in it.
Comparison: OPI Funky Dunkey vs. Zoya Malia - Purples are so hard to capture! Both of these should be warmer than pictured. By the way, Malia is a very pretty purple.
Comparison: Zoya Savita vs. OPI Funky Dunkey - I had done this comparison to show the relative base colour of Savita. Which reminds me, I really need to wear my Zoyas. I think Zoya month is going to follow OPI month.
I think I'm going to keep OPI Funky Dunkey in my stash. It's just a nice polish to have. I think this means I need to purge the American Apparel... but I will defer that decision for now. LOL!
I'm going to the dentist tomorrow morning. I haven't been for a year (bad me!) because I cancelled my last cleaning 6 months ago at the last minute, and then never rescheduled >
