Odd Duck of a Nude

Of late TJ Maxx has been putting out OPI sets of two that are renamed OPI/$OPI/NOPI polishes.

The blogger I'm A Beauty Geek did a post on it, which has helped immensely.

I have about 8 or so of these and am so grateful for the comparison. So far I only have one dupe set, and it's not the one I'm posting today.

Among my score I found an OPI called Baring it All, a nude that is pretty neutral - I love neutral nudes.

It is supposed to be a dupe of a Kim K collection NOPI polish, but mine isn't.

By the sherlockian investigation of those who have done comparisons, this should be another OPI, NOPI or Sephora's OPI line. But what? I do not have any other OPI/NOPI/$OPI nudes that are recent enough to be called a "relabeling". It could be just an odd duck, until something else shows up.

My version, which is something-but-what kind of thing ended up only being fairly close to OPI Bare It In Trafalgar Square:

Left to right:
OPI Baring It All

As you can see they aren't the same.
Bare It In Trafalgar Square is a lovely pre-3-Free two coater.
Baring It All needed three coats, it is also a bit deeper and slightly more pink, but that's debatable, it's just darker.
Both worked very well and I didn't have to fuss with clean-up or dry time. Win!

Love them both, but love BIITS a tad bit better. I think only because it is a two coater, both are lovely nudes that I am very glad to have.

I do recommend buzzing on into TJ Maxx if you are looking for some OPI's at a much better deal than Drug Store prices of Sally Hansen CSM - my area it runs $7.99, ghastly price considering the formula.

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. I've been making a tour of Marshalls and TJ Maxx stores in my area and have run across all sorts of odd OPIs. It just confuses me. Of course I bought a few anyway, despite the confusion. :)

    1. I agree, I can only figure that a lot of these are renamed polishes from affiliations with movies and celebrities. Like my green one being a Shrek polish. Although, that theory falls very short because I have seen a lot of Mariah Carey polishes that are just out there. Go figure! :D
