OPI Oy-Another Polish Joke!

Hi you guys! Hanging in there this week? It looks like I'm stuck in meetings all day today. Hopefully they are interesting so I don't fall asleep lol. :-)

Today, I've got one of my favorites and definitely one of the more interesting polishes from the OPI Euro Centrale Collection to share with you. Oy-Another Polish Joke! is filled with small sparkly gold shimmers in a sheer base.






This polish is quite sheer by itself. In the swatches, I'm showing three coats, and you can still see a fair amount of visible nail lines at that. It isn't too noticeable in person because the sparkliness hides some of that sheerness, but it's probably more sheer than most would be comfortable with.

Oy-Another Polish Joke! over My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours

I definitely prefer to wear an underwear with this, and I feel that's when this polish really comes alive. I've got one coat of Oy over My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! in the picture above, and you can see that the combination is fantastic and a little unexpected. I certainly didn't think Oy would look so good as a top coat, but it really does. I'm looking forward to trying it over some other colors soon.

Formula-wise, Oy goes onto the nails easily and smoothly. It has a medium consistency and is just a little thicker than OPIs usually are. I think it's due to the suspension base that keeps all the shimmers evenly distributed throughout the polish. Dry time is a little longer due to the consistency, but nothing that I could not wait for.

You can find Oy-Another Polish Joke! at your local nail salons and beauty stores for $9 for 0.5 fl oz.

  6. Looking at it by itself, I was kinda like, "Nice, but I still like Ziv better...," and then I hit your last pic and was all, "WOW!" Yun, you are brilliant--this makes a *fabulous* top coat! :D

  7. I was so curious to see this one as I saw Liesl layering it over the Czech Book polish and I loved it. I agree that I would rather wear it as topcoat - your combination is beautiful :-) - Christine

  9. I just saw a blog post with this polish layered on top and think it looks better over something as well. Would be nice to use it to spice up a polish.

  12. This is really pretty, but I must say I hate the name. I get that it is a play on all the polish jokes that they make, but does anyone else think the Polish (nationality) joke reference it could also allude to is a little odd?

    1. Lol OPI names are always a little weird. I'm glad you like the color! :-)

  13. So pretty! I love that it looks great both layered and built up to opacity by itself!

  14. Ohh, I'm so glad you showed us the layering! Oy is so magical layered :) Though I must say, your swatches of it by itself are the prettiest I've seen :)

  16. I love the way that looks over My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! It doesn't look like any other nail polish I've seen. I've gotten quite a few sheer polishes that have disappointed me until I used them as topcoats, and then I was so glad to have them!

  17. I like the layering. the yellow reminds me a bit of china glaze champagne bubbles for some reason :)
