Canadian Maple Leaf by OPI


Hello darlings,

It's 36 degrees F(2 degrees C) today and while most brands are flooding the beauty market with their Spring collections, it's just too cold for me to want to wear the pastels and more vibrant colors normally wore during the upcoming seasons (Spring doesn't officially start til March 20th). So until then...or until the weather warms up and starts to feel like spring, I'll continue to capitalize on  my winter colors :)

Canadian Maple Leaf is a brown tinged deep pinkish cranberry with a bluish violet shimmer. This was a limited edition polish and it came out way back in the fall of 2004 with the Canadian Collection.

It takes about three to four coats to get the same color as seen in the bottle. Canadian Maple Leaf is such a pretty color, that I don't mind applying an extra coat or two. This polish wears beautifully without any chipping or peeling and on my nails it lasts up to one week.  I simply adore this polish!!!! After writing this post, I think I may need to go online hunting and buy a back up. Thank goodness for online shopping,  TALLY-HO!!!:D

If anyone knows a dupe for Canadian Maple Leaf, let me know. 

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  1. It's a very pretty color, and I know what you mean! I don't feel the urge to wear any spring colors yet, even though I've bought a few from recent collections..hehe It's just to cold.

  2. No kidding Renee, it's freezing over here!! and the fact that apartments in JP don't come with central a/c doesn't help in the least!!
