Twinsie Tuesday - Our First Polish (OPI Espresso Your Style)

Good Morning! Today's Twinsie Tuesday post topic was an interesting one, our first nail polish. I know I had a lot of drugstore polishes that I misplaced or threw away (I'm talking about you, Sally Hansen Nail Prisms) so I decided to go with my first OPI. The first OPI I ever purchased was OPI Espresso Your Style from the Deliciously Dark collection (2008, I think?). I picked this up from the JcPenney salon, and with the price tag still attached I can confirm I paid $7.50 for this baby. Espresso Your Style is a dark brown with a bit of a burgundy undertone. The burgundy is very apparent in the first coat, but is much more subtle with the second. There is a small hint of shimmer that appears depending on the lighting. The formula was still great even after all of these years, even without thinner. I used two coats for the photos below...


 
On my nails this reminded me of Hershey Kisses or hot cocoa...
 
Don't forget to check out my Twinsies. I'm interested to see where everyone started their polish obsession:
