OPI 'Greece Just Blew Me Away'

I had a super amazing dusty hunt this week. I went to a local supply shop looking for oldies and found nothing. On my way back to my car I stopped in a local salon. She allowed me to look at her polish and told me she had only "new" ones. They may have been new in early 2000, but they aren't new now!

I found 'La Boheme' (75%-80% full), 'Greece Just Blue Me Away' (90% full), 'Apricotcha Cheating '(95% full) and 'Bet It All on OPI' (95% new). She sold them for $5.00 each. Why thank you mam!

I then stopped at another supply stop. I was a little skeptical about going in due to the neighborhood, but nothing stops me when I'm polish hunting. I found a basket containing 'Orange You From New York', 'Grand Central Carnation', and 'St Louis Sorbet.' I got all of these amazing polishes in about 1.5 hours. Yay!

From my hunt, today I have 'Greece Just Blew Me Away' from the Greek Isles collection in 2004. It's discontinued and I've seen it on posts as a HTF polish. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous blue with subtle light blue/teal shimmer. The photos below are 2 coats and a coat of Seche Vite.


  1. wow! I love this polish!!!!! you were lucky to find it! I'm following you now!

  2. Thank you! And welcome. When I first saw this polish I was tempted to leave it (I have SO many blues) but I knew I couldn't, I'm glad. :)
