Seriously Hip is an incredibly dark olive green with gold shimmer. I have yet to figure out if the base polish is actually black or just a very very dark olive green. In low light it looks black. In indirect light it looks black with flecks of something in it. In artificial light, it looks like a wicked dark green with some large gold shimmer. In direct sunlight, it actually looks like it does in the bottle. In no light at all except for the flash of my camera does it ever actually look like the picture. Lol. I'm sorry I couldn't manage to get a picture of it in direct sunlight. I put it on and ended up going to work, which completely ruined it.
I'm really unhappy with this manicure. I wasn't used to the brush so ended up botching it. OPI wide brushes have spoiled me. This is two coats of colour with standard base and top. It's opaque in two coats. It applies fine. Not sure if that's enough for the $14.50 CAD I paid for it. But it is definitely a unique colour.
Overall, I am totally meh over this polish. I might redo the manicure for Halloween and see how I feel about it then. If my opinion changes, will update.
Edit: Well, hello reader. I found out something today. Seriously Hip is not a shimmer, it is a glitter. I found that out after rubbing again and again with nail polish remover and finding the little gold bits weren't going away. I love how glitter looks, just hate how it comes off. But Vampy Varnish has a lovely tutorial on how to take off glitter polish, definitely check it out.
