Pass up this cinnamon coffee? You’re barking up the wrong tree!”
Inspired by the northern lights in Finland, deep blue fjords in Norway, and the colorful houses in Copenhagen brings the OPI Nordic collection 12 gorgeous new colors. A must have for this autumn and winter.
How Great is Your Dane? is a gorgeous chocolate brown crème polish with a slight grey undertone. In my opinion the perfect fall shade.
Its formula is great, like all the other polishes from the Nordic collection. On all swatches I’ve applied just two thin coats, you can manage with one thicker coat. It has a crème finish with a gorgeous shiny finish. Application goes without effort and no visible brush strokes. A good basecoat is a must with this How Great is Your Dane? because it’s very heavily pigmented, great for the opacity but it’s staining. Because of its shiny finish a topcoat isn’t a much but it extends the wear of your manicure.
When the Nordic collection was delivered and I saw this shade it reminded me of another polish in my stash OPI You Don’t Know Jacques!.
How Great is Your Dane? is a tad darker than You Don’t Know Jacques! The photo above is made in a studio environment with a lot of light, when you see the polishes in normal daylight there isn’t much of a difference between them. How Great is Your Dane? has a slightly grey undertone that Jacques doesn’t have.
Even though it’s not a very unique shade I do like it a lot, especially for the darker days. I’m sure I’ll wear this Dane a lot this winter.
If you have You Don’t Know Jacques! in you stash, How Great is Your Dane? won’t be a big addition. Personally I would’ve past.
The OPI Nordic collection is now for sale at an OPI dealer near you. The 12 colors are available in full size bottles (15ml) and a minipack with four mini bottles in it.
