OPI Cuckoo For This Color

Here is the first in my Polish series!

The first polish I am going to talk about is OPI's Cuckoo For This Color. These are $8.50 each! Well, at least where I got them, the are $8.50. You pretty much have to find a  Salon  near you that sells OPI.
Luckily for me, the Salon in my local Walmart has these and since Walmart is literally walking distance from me, they are easily available. Now how I got ahold of these was my Salon had them on Buy 1 Get 2 Free Clearance. Ive been eyeing these for quite some time now and just haven't bought them. When I saw there were 4 left for the Buy 1 get 2 Free I jumped on 3 of them, since the other was a duplicate.
Cuckoo For This Color is a dark pine green with shimmer of teal, green and silver flecks of micro-glitter.
After looking into it, this color is from the Swiss Collection that came out in 2010, so I am not sure why my Salon still had it, I guess cleaning out their back stock what polishes.

This color is extremely dark IN the bottle, while it is still dark ON your nails, its very pretty. You can clearly see that it is a dark pine green color. For this being one of my FIRST OPI polishes I am pleasently surprised and happy with it!
Although I didn't get much wear out of it, not even a day. As you can tell in the pictures, my nails are already chipped and I had JUST painted them, giving them enough time to dry before I took the pictures. Then again, my nails are kind of crap and thin anyways and NO nail polish stays very long, regardless of how well I prep them. They just don't stick. Ive even had acryllic nails fall off of me within a few days. LOL.

Anyways, my only beef about the polish is the brush. I actually think its kind of a crap brush. It leaves the nails looking a bit streaky on the first coat, but it goes away after you apply the second coat. It only takes about 2 coats to make this completely opaque. So it is pigmented.
Ive not used a top coat in any of the pictures by the way. :)

You can still find this nail polish on Amazon and I am sure you could find it on Ebay.

Have you tried this polish? What do you think of it?
