OPI Parlez-Vous OPI? and Done Out in Deco (aka DOiD!)

I think we all sometimes have regrets about not getting into nail polish sooner and missing out on x, y, or z. I try really hard to ignore those what ifs and just focus on what is easily available now, since I'm sure there's plenty to keep me happy.

That said, I got into nail polish last year, so I just missed PVO and DOiD. Through the power of the internets (MUA swap and TD order) I got these two recently, haha. But trust me, you won't see me staking out Ebay bidding on Unicorn Pee!

I usually believe in supply and demand, but when it comes to nail polish and beauty products, it feels ridiculous. I have no problem using spread positions on interest rates for pricing derivatives or swaps, but nail polish? C'MON! :)

OPI Parlez-vous OPI? - Received a very nice pm on MUA while I was waiting for my flight to Orlando requesting a swap for this! I was pretty happy, hehe. I like it, but I'm still not sure if I love it on my skintone.

OPI Done Out in Deco - Who can resist a polish whose acronym is "DOiD"? Bonus that it is a really nice colour :) I really like this shade a lot! I think it did take me 3 coats, but I wasn't irritated by it at all.

Comparison: OPI Done Out in Deco vs. OPI Rumple's Wiggin' - I don't really have anything close to DOiD, but here it is against Rumple's Wiggin' so you get an idea of how dusty it is! :)

I got DOiD from Transdesign, but it was listed as "Don't Out in Deco" instead of "Done Out in Deco". I was slightly worried that I would receive a bizarre mislabeled polish, but it worked out in the end :) The right polish came, haha.

I added Disqus as my commenting system now, I like it a lot because I can reply individually to people! \o/ Hope it's not too annoying to use! :)


  1. i like both of these on you! and i like disqus cause i don't have to sign in!

  2. I love both of these on you! :) I want your nails!

  3. Umm... I might or might not have added PVO to my Amazon cart... *shifty eyes*

  4. I have a bit of a process I go through with lemmings that works thus:

    1. I see a swatch of a color I love.
    2. I ask myself: is it readily available? Do I have a color that's so close its kind of pointless?
    3. If yes and no (respectively), I get it. If no to both, I ask myself:
    4. Do I have a dupe that will satisfy the lust enough that I don't need it: (Case in point: I'd love to have Unicorn Pee. But if I layer Hard Candy Beetle over a dark blue or purple, its good enough.)

    That said, I STILL need a good holo.

  5. Haha yay! I really love being able to reply to a comment and have it indented... ahhhhhhh *bliss*

  6. You're very sweet :) You don't want my righthand nails though, that I'm sure of! :D

  7. LOL! As long as it didn't break the bank! :)

  8. That is a good system to abide by! I've tried to stick to only buying what I can find in person, but it's easy to fall off that wagon!

    I should post my Love8Brain 230 franken on my blog soon! I wonder if I can find the pics...

    How about NfuOh holos from Fabuloustreet? I have to admit, they are a bit out of my own price range, as gorgeous as they are. My best holo is a Sally Hansen Nail Prisms found at Dollar Tree last summer. That was one lucky day!

  9. Gorgeous. I have DOiD, but now I kinda want Parlez Vous.

  10. I really love your nails! Would you tell me now you cut/shape them, please? Thanks you💋
