Twinsie Tuesday: OPI At Your Quebec & Call

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Twinsie Tuesday! This week's theme is discontinued polish, so today I'll be sharing OPI At Your Quebec & Call, all the way back from the OPI Canadian Collection, which I think came out in 2004. At Your Quebec & Call is a very interesting color: a little olive, a little bronze...totally my style. It's got this antique-y gold look to it that reminds me of Butter London Wallis, which is always a good thing.




The formula on this is cooperative but thin. I used three coats and still noticed a few little patches afterwards. But I really love this polish regardless. The color is just so interesting and a little unexpected too. It's such a shame OPI didn't make this one permanent because there isn't anything else in their current core collection like it at all. You can still find this polish pretty easily online though.

Do you have a favorite discontinued polish? Check out some more discontinued beauties on the other Twinsie Tuesday blogs!

  2. I love OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape—it's such a fun summer color, and I'm glad I scooped up a bottle before it was gone! La-Pazitively Hot is also great; it's really bright so I use it to layer under glitters and it looks fabulous.

  6. This shade was really new and unexpected when it came out. I still like it a lot - but then I like many of the old black label formulas better than the 3 or 4 free. This shade was before it's time.

    1. Forgot to answer your ? - Yes, I have a ton of discontinued fav polishes. My now stash reaches back to the late 80's with a couple purges done during that time. So I have many precious babies in my stash. There are some I really cling to - many are from holiday collections from OPI

    2. I totally agree this color was before its time. Sounds like you probably have plenty of discontinued beauties in your stash! I'm not sure what the oldest polish I have is but I don't think it goes back TOO far. Some of the OPI holiday collections had some real stunners!

    1. Thank you! :) Although don't you just HATE it when you realize you miss something you got rid of? It drives me nuts when that happens!
