Goth Waitresses From Coney Island Love OPI Nails (And So Do We)

March 9, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby

And OPI said, "Let there be I'm Not Really A Waitress." And it was good. So was Lincoln Park After Dark and Coney Island Cotton Candy. So good, in fact, that these cleverly-named colors became OPI's best-selling nail polishes ever. Why? Well, we like to think it has something to do with the kitschy names, but mere words do not a beauty best-seller make. It takes more than that to earn a coveted spot in the Hall of Fame.

I'm absolutely not a manicurist (in fact I'm an exceedingly terrible nail-painter), so I was thrilled when Lincoln Park After Dark went on cleanly, without gloppiness–quite professional looking, really. This miracle was due primarily to the extra-thick brush, designed to hold more paint and spread it more evenly. The polish is also thick enough to only need two layers, which saved me from my own future mistakes. This OPI polish left my nails nicely glossy, and the deep purple, almost black color is just rich enough to be intriguing without looking goth.

I did up most of my toes with I'm Not Really A Waitress, a reliable red that's attention-grabbing but not drastically so, and one lone big toe with the pinkish Coney Island Cotton Candy. Personally I preferred the red for my toes, because it's a stronger color, and would probably reserve the subtle Cotton Candy for day-to-day use on my hands. These three colors are OPI's best-sellers for good reason. They're classic and sophisticated, fast-drying, and hard to chip. But the company has also come out with some new bolder, funkier colors, so check out their website for more options.
