What my nails wore to work: OPI - Lighten Up, You're Two Pence!

I made a random selection and wore one of my old, HTF gems from OPI this week.

Lighten Up, You're Two Pence! is from OPI's British collection released for the 2003 Fall/Winter season.  Somehow I think I've had this bottle lurking in my collection from way back then too!  This is the old black label formula with the skinny brush so it was a little tricky to apply.  It's a very loud and shameless coppery burnt orange with a shimmery finish.  I guess it's supposed to be reminiscent of copper pennies.  Not for the faint-hearted or orange-phobic!

I know this is a very autumnal colour but I had fun wearing it this week and being at odds with the season...

 Outdoors shade

 Full sun


What do you think?  Like or loathe?

Until next time.

  2. @Grace - I agree it's a pretty glam shade!

  3. Great colour - I wish OPI reincarnate this one! Very unusual!

  4. Great color.. I like to see stuff from old collections, eventhough I know I will never own any of them :( .. looks amazing though!

  5. I love the name of this one! :-p

    I'm on the fence about the color, but I think I like more than dislike! Your nails look fabulous as usual.

  6. @Marusya V - I'm loving it too. I don't know how I could have forgotten about it!

    @Polish AMOR - I have a few old HTF OPI's simply because I've been buying them since 1999! I need to swatch more of the oldies :)

    @Vintage Makeup - Thanks for the comment about my nails - Guess what?! They're back to nubbins again cos I'm about to head off on vacation!
