O.P.I – Uh Oh Roll Down the Window NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 3 - 2011

The second shade that I was fortunate enough to preview from the upcoming OPI Touring America collection is this olive green number called Uh Oh Roll Down the Window.

Autumn/Fall’s OPI Touring America collection is set for release in the UK this August and sees an eclectic mixture of Summer brights and Autumnal earthy shades making the cut.

Uh Oh Roll Down the Window is an olive green creme with more than enough grey to keep it muted and work-appropriate.  The above photo shows two coats in hindsight, I should have given it a third for a perfect finish.  Wear has been solid and without issue as I’d expect from the professional nail brand.

The shade bears more than a passing resemblance to Nails Inc. Battersea Park which isn’t available to buy anymore but after receiving a few enquiries about it last year, you might be pleased to hear that you can get your hands on something similar..

O.P.I – Uh Oh Roll Down the Window will be available on our shores this August from LenaWhite.

    LOL @ that name/colour combination! Not my favourite colour for nails, but I don’t think OPI is expecting this one to be a sleeper hit, given the name of the shade. It almost seems like they made this one for creativity’s sake alone, and I applaud that!

    Is the name supposed to be because you feel sick? If so ewww. I don’t want vomit nails but I would have liked the colour if I didn’t know that! It seems like OPI might have read the whole Bile/Shit fingers Eyeko post (which caused such controversy lol!) and thought they’d get in on the game. x

    Love the name & actually like the colour! Gorgeous Bamboo Green. I only use nail polishes for work and suppose this colour is prob not great with everyday women but in terms of fashion shoots i think it’s a lush colour. Thanks hon xx

    It’s nice but….not outstanding. Plus I’m not buying OPI any more.

    PS Like the black background. More restful for my dodgy eyes!

    I like this shade, I hate the name. I don’t particularly want to be reminded of… what that reminds me of… when I look at my nails. OPI has some of the weirdest color names though.

    I think the name is quite appropriate for the colour.
    I’m not going to lie, I’m not a big fan of this colour.

    But thank you for reviewing it (and saving me buying it and then being disappointed!)

    I think if the colur was slightly darker like Topshop’s Utilitarian it might appeal to me.

    I used to be crazy about green nailpolish but in the past year or so they have started to feel just wrong on me. Instead I’ve been in love with mah greys, taupes and murky purples and blues (Chanel Paradoxal and Particuliere and MAC Indian Blue) but I think this polish made me remember my love for green again. It seems to be muted and greyed in the same way as many of my current polishloves. Thanks for sharing this!
