OPI Significant Other Color

Hello all!  I have a lovely OPI polish to show you today - this is Significant Other Color and I won it in Mel of Nail & Polish's giveaway.  In the bottle, Significant Other Color is a pale pink with a spring-green duochrome shift.  I didn't think I would like it, but then I put it on my nails and I was blown away.

Since Significant Other Color is a sheer polish, I tried a few different applications to see what worked best - I used one coat of A England Camelot as my black and two coats of Illamasqua Scorch for my white.
At one coat, Significant Other Colour gives the nail a shimmery pink sheen that shows a peek of green in some lights - I think that I will definitely wear it at one coat for a simple, barely-there mani in the future, perhaps with a coat of a sheer white on top!  At four coats, Significant Other Color is opaque and it give the nail a pearly look - the green shift is definitely apparent.  Over black, the duochrome shift is very dramatic, with both the pink and green very visible.  I think if I put another coat on top, I could eliminate some of the brush strokes a bit - but this combination definitely make for a striking mani!  Finally, over white - none of the duochrome goodness is visible, unfortunately, leaving simply a slightly shimmery shade of pale pink.

I love, love, love this polish, much more than I expected!  I think it looks best at four coats by itself and at one coat over black, but I'll wear it at one coat over my bare nails for a lighter look as well.
