OPI: Unfor- Greta- Bly Blue

Hello everyone!

This blue shimmer is OPI: Unfor- Greta- Bly Blue. The pictures were taken before top coat, but I think it looks gorgeous like this too. I bought it on eBay in August 2012 together with OPI: Every Month is Oktoberfest (used here for layering, and here is the mattified version). They are both from the Germany Collection (released in August 2012).

My Christmas cactus had understood that it was December, and produced these pretty pink flowers. Then I turned it (so that the flowers faced the room), and it made flowers on the other side too!!!

According to OPI:
"Since 2006, OPI has reformulated its entire line of Nail Lacquers, Nail Treatments, and Nail Hardeners to eliminate DBP (dibutyl phthalate) and Toluene. 
Formaldehyde has never been an ingredient in OPI Nail Lacquers or Nail Treatments."

Sadly, OPI disappeared from the animal organizations' cruelty- free lists last year, so I didn't publish these pictures. But I still haven't seen OPI on the other list either, so I hope it's only because OPI was bought by an animal testing brand (Coty) that OPI was removed from the list, and that OPI still haven't started to test on animals.

Now, when I tried to find out about OPI's status regarding animal testing, I was surprised and very happy to read that OPI is concerned about, and trying to identify and eradicate human trafficking and slavery from supply chains. :-)
