OPI Thanks a WindMillion

Hi Everybody! 

I've been editing photos for this post on the four hour drive to see my boyfriend's family and I've got Thanks a WindMillion to show you as promised!

This polish is from the OPI Spring Summer 2012 Holland collection and I've wanted it for months so I was really pleased to find it so cheaply on eBay and when it arrived I wanted to wear it as soon as possible.

Thanks a WindMillion is what I would describe as a more muted, greyed out version of Mermaid's Tears from the Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides Collection from last year. It's kind of a seafoamy green that looked so pretty in swatches I'd seen online. The only problem in my eyes is that on my olive skin it pulls really khaki green. I think the grey in it shows up much more on me which is such a shame. Don't get me wrong, I still love this colour, but I wish my skin was a bit whiter so I could get the colour I've seen in blogger swatches!

I used two coats of Thanks a WindMillion for the photos below with a coat of Seche Vite.

I love this colour even though it doesn't look the same on me as it would on someone else with a different skin tone! I bought Stranger Tides from the Pirates collection but I think I'm going to have to get Mermaid's Tears as well so I can have my dusty seafoam green!

I can't remember the seller's name on eBay were I got this from, but I'll try and have a look as soon as possible and let you all know. I still have a few polishes to review that I bought from them, I'm sure they were only about £4!
