OPI Don't Melbourne the Toast

Yesterday at work we held interviews for a new student helper. I was a good girl and removed my darling teal creme for a more work appropriate color. I'm the temporary (2 months and counting *grr*) manager so I must set a good example for impressionable young minds...*sigh*

I have a surprising number of "work safe" colors and unsurprisingly, they're almost all untried, lol. Most of them are OPI's that I bought on clearance (usually 75% off) at Trade Secret. I really need to stop doing that. Especially with sheers! I don't usually wear them. I have Stained Nails. Defiantly so. Lol.

Anyway, I pulled out OPI Don't Melbourne the Toast from the Australia collection released in 2007. It was overcast and rainy on Friday (first picture) and beautifully sunny this morning (second picture).

I can't say this is one of my favorite colors because I really do prefer something bright and/or bold on my nails. But it does have a nice subtle pink and golden shimmer (you can click to enlarge the pictures). This was two thin coats. There is some visible nail line in the pictures that isn't as noticeable in real life. If you really wanted to be sure, a third coat would easily take care of that. I could see myself using this again if the need arose. I think right now I'm so worn out and anxious at my job that bright flashy colors are my quiet rebellion. I expect you'll be seeing more of them from me soon. =)


  1. I like this. 75% off. I'd get this for that money for sure.

    Hope work improves...

  2. This is my favorite color, and am so bummed they don't make it anymore!

  3. I'm a manager and I TOTALLY rock dark nails, lol Anyhow, I love this color on you. I featured it on my blog and thought I'd give you a heads up :)
