Here I am again… with yet another OPI nail polish :) This time it’s a bright pink/fucsia color La Paz-itively Hot:
This polish originally comes from OPI South American collection for Summer 2002. Now it’s a part of the OPI core collection, and hopefully they won’t discontinue it any time soon, as I really like this vibrant summertime shade. I’ve already used about 1/3 of the bottle, and judging by my other polishes, it’s a lot! I’d definitely repurchase it.
La Paz-itively Hot has a bit of violet iridescent shimmer to it, which gives the color more depth and richness. The shimmer seems to be camera-shy and it’s not quite visible on my nails here. A closeup anyways (sunlights thru the clouds):
In the next picture you can see the condensed shimmer in the bottle. This gorgeous shimmering effect is also visible on nails in the artificial lightning.
This color was also re-released with OPI matte shades. I’ve never seen La Paz-itively Hot matte in rl, only on other nail polish blogs, but I’d definitely try it if I have a chance. Another option is to apply a matte top over it, maybe that’s what I’ll do next time :)
As for today, I have one more pic for you – a comparison of Sally Hansen Twisted Pink shimmer (on my ring finger) and OPI La Paz-itively Hot. Needless to say the shades are different, as well as their shimmering effects – tiny golden flakes in SH Twisted Pink against OPI’s violet sheen. Anyway, I hope the comparison will help to create a better picture/description of the shade:
That’s all for today, I hope you all had a great weekend and fully enjoyed these first summer days!
See you next time xxx
