OPI Damone Roberts 1968

Thanks to my lovely fellow Wicked Vixen Ange, I, the Swede living far, far away from Los Angeles or New York, managed to get ahold of a bottle of the infamous special edition Damone Roberts 1968 by OPI.

I admit it. I had to ask my friends what sex Damone Roberts is, I couldn't really tell. I wonder if that is good or bad, or just tells the most about yours truly and her lack of intelligence? Maybe a little hesitation is just what Mr. Roberts is going for?

However, this is about Damone Roberts' special creation, the mint green that is supposed to send our minds back in time to the poppin' 60's. And you know what? I like it!

These photos have been slightly color corrected. Shown is three coats, and I did thick ones and unfortunately because of that gained a few bubbles, but apart from that, the formula is actually rather nice for being a pastel polish. I'm not used to working with them, so I am very grateful!

In another review, I read that this is the mint green for ladies with warm skintones, and I could not agree more! This is the one mint green I have tried so far that looks the best on me, and I am a neutral, warm leaning gal with yellow undertones. My photos came out cooler than the true color, hence the corrections. Also, this mint pastel is not too light, and I'm much in favour of that. I feel that it makes a strong impact even though it's a soft tone, which suits my personality (and skin) better than the really light ones we've seen a lot this spring.

I decided to rock the retro pastel style completely when I redid my mani and pedi last night, so I paired my Damone Roberts shade with the nice, slightly dusty turquoise classic For Audrey from China Glaze. They look kind of cute together... Small photo in case there are any feetophobics out there.

I am already picking up a tan... And trust me, Damone Roberts 1968 looks aweome with a tan!

Swedish word of the night:

Because Swedes still love putting words together, and our word for six is sex. ;)


  1. Hmm!! Cake looks good. Love mint green polish. I need to swatch mine :)

  2. Good grief! I just realized that when I bookmarked your page I accidentally book marked a specific search I'd done. Which explains why it looked like you hadn't updated since April! I've got a lot of catching up to do... :D

    This nail polish color reminds me of a dessert I once had. I wish I could get my hands on this color!

  3. Hmmm...I ordered the polish from DR's website to Norway and I got a confirmation. I do hope this arrive cause they did charge me!

    Anyway, the color is great on you. I'm cool toned with red undertones so I'm hoping I can pull it off. Thanks for the pictures!!

  4. lol, I love Damone Roberts' androgynous look. Such a pretty face and long flowing hair on a buff man's body.

    Thr color looks great on you!

  5. Obviously this would be the perfect mint green for me too as I'm also in the warm category with yellow undertones. Now I want it eve more!!! Aaaaa!!!
    Great swatches!

  6. I'm not crazy about it, but I like it a lot. =)

  7. I picked up a bottle as well and I can not wait to put it on!
