Sephora by OPI Read My Palm

As you might have seen, I posted about the Sephora by OPI Tinsel Town Collector's Set the other day, and I promised reviews of some of the colours in the set. Read My Palm* instantly caught my attention, and it was the first one that I decided to try out!


Read My Palm looks gorgeous in the bottle, a beautiful sea foam green. This colour does remind me of OPI's Mermaid Tears. Unfortunately, I had some issues with the formula of this polish. I found it to be very streaky and not very pigmented. What you see in the pictures here is four coats of polish! And still there are many visible streaks and bald spots. The formula of Sephora by OPI polishes seems to be pretty hit or miss for me, either I'm over the moon, or left wanting more. 


As you can see on my ring finger, the polish is really streaky. Sephora by OPI is supposed to be a higher end brand, and it is more expensive than the original OPI polishes. SOPI polishes are $12, and OPI polishes are around $9, but often can be found on special (buy 2 get one free, etc). 


Have you tried Sephora by OPI's Read My Palm? Is the formula normally this bad, or is the formula different in the mini set? Let me know in the comments below! :)
