OPI Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green, 2 coats plus top coat
Today is truly a glorious day! We get to look at the one single green in OPI’s Scotland collection as we march on with my series. I think it should be a legal requirement for OPI to have at least one green in all their fall/winter collections. The Washington DC Collection gave us two absolute bangers (yes, there were three, but I didn’t care too much for one of them), the Iceland Collection had an interesting one, last year’s Peru collection gave us the divine Ayahuasca Made Me Do It, and this year we get some murky dark forest green goodness with Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green. I always say that my favorite polish color is teal but everyone seems to associate me with green so I guess I’ll just embrace it. (I made that sound so begrudging, as if there are not about a million green polishes I’ve gushed about that have made y’all recognize me as a queen of green!)
For today’s swatches, I used Deborah Lippmann Hard Rock as my base coat and SuperChic Lacquer’s Marvel Liquid Macro top coat where noted.
OPI Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green, 1 coat
The first coat of Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green goes on looking a wee bit sheer. It has a squishy quality to it like OPI Grabs the Unicorn by the Horn. I had a few streaks but found that using a few extra brush strokes evened the color out more. A lot of times over-manipulation ends with more streaking, but not with this polish! The formula is not as buttery as I would expect a darker OPI shade to have.

Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green is easily opaque in two coats. Even though the formula is slightly squishy, I had no further streaking or sheer spots; it fills in beautifully. It does dry very dark, but it is still an obviously green polish.
Left to right: OPI Suzi – The First Lady of Nails, OPI Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green, Revlon Jungle
Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green is a lot dustier than Suzi – The First Lady of Nails, it almost looks grey in comparison. Revlon Jungle, one of my favorites, is a lot darker and no where near as dusty. No dupes again – yay!!!
I did not go to Aberdeen when I was in Scotland, so instead enjoy this shot of the green Scottish countryside I took out the car window in between Edinburgh and Inverness.
OPI did us good this year! I would have thought there would be more greens considering Scotland is a very wet and therefore green country, but at least they delivered the goods with the one they provided us.

OPI is not cruelty-free. I bought my bottle at polishpick.com.

[…] Rub-a-Pub-Pub is a darker color, the formula has that same sort of squishyness that Things I’ve Seen in Aber-green has. It is close to opacity, but I do see some light spots. With these type of formulas, I do not […]
