OPI Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not - FINALLY!!

In the summer of '08 my life was completely different.  I was working as a cashier at two part-time jobs, determined to stay single, and newly moved out of my mother's house for the first time.  I was also buying TONS of clothing.  I bought more clothes in '08 than in the four years since, I think.  Gap's employee discount has always been excellent.  Combine that with spending 15-30 hours a week surrounded by clothes....and the wardrobe is gonna grow.  One of the *big* colors that year was this saturated red-voilet...and I loved it!  It's one of those "made for me" colors.  I bought at least four shirts in it.  Around August of that year I was at Ulta with my mother and I  OPI's new La Collection De France!  The perfect polish to match my shirts in *that* color.  It was called Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not....and I was in love.  I also also struggling with money because part-time jobs mean variable paychecks...and I was spending way too much on clothes.  I had to pass on it.  It wasn't easy to do.  It was so perfect!

In the years since, I've visited it many times...heaving a sigh of relief that it was still part of the core collection.  I could wait....I had to wait.

...wait's over!

Tip: Don't paint your nails black six times in 24 hours. Cuticle sadness!
Thanks to an outstanding swap....I traded something exceedingly rare for a big parcel of mostly OPI goodness....I have it!  It is *exactly* what I hoped it would be!'s a little sheerer than I'd have liked.  This is three coats.  BUT...three coats without even a hint of visible nail line!  It flatters my skin-tone as wonderfully as the shirts do and the shimmer is small, but twinkles with hints of fuchsia and blue.

It's the ideal compliment to the shirts!  I couldn't be more pleased!  C'est parfait!
