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!

  2. Joyce says:

    very funny name…. not my color though….

  3. Alex T says:

    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

    I love the color!

  6. Shortiee31 says:

    Reminds me of Eyeko Military…

  7. the name is too funny, but i really enjoy the colour!
    i love olive.

  8. Jen says:

    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!

  9. Meeka says:

    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.

  10. Jen says:

    I like the color but I hate the name, ha!

  11. kelliegonzo says:

    LOVE this color, and like most others, HATE the name. i have an aversion, make that full on PHOBIA to well you know…so yeah. GROSS. haha. thanks for the swatch, it’s really pretty!

  12. Leah says:

    It’s not my cup of tea, but I can see it’d be fabulous on an Army themed night out!

  13. Sydney says:

    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!)

  14. Esha says:

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

  15. Heidi says:

    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!

  17. […] Uh-oh roll down the window, OPI Aaaah, le vernis kaki crème. Une longue longue quête, que j’ai cru sans fin. Je me souviens qu’on en avait parlé longuement sur le forum Caroline Daily, impossible de trouver le bon kaki ni trop vert, ni trop bleu, ni trop gris… Dès la sortie de la collection Touring America, mon radar à vernis kaki s’est donc arrêté sur Uh-oh roll down the windox. Je l’ai donc commandé et waouh, la perfection ! Et puis les vernis OPI, quelle perfection : ils se posent facilement, sèchent vite, leur pinceau est génial… Bref, parfait parfait parfait. Il m’arrive encore de lorgner vers les kaki que je vois dans les nouvelles collections, mais la quête est terminée Allez donc voir ce que rend ce parfait kaki chez Lipglossiping. […]
