Instead of reaching for self-help books, maybe Dumbo should wear nail polish (and in particular, OPI I’m All Ears) to feel better about himself!
Perhaps he’d hit it off with Minnie Mouse, even though there are lots of tall tales about elephants being scared of mice.
And will you take my temperature? I have never worn so many pink polishes in such a short period of time!
It’s actually making me miss my greens, and I never miss them because they’re usually my staple.

OPI I’m All Ears Review
If I wear a pink polish, I prefer to go with ones like this that are bold magentas. I feel like they never clash with my skin tone and, therefore, are easier for me to pull off. (Some light pinks can make my fingers look odd and dirty.)
The glassflecks are pink and purple, which make it a treat to gaze upon, especially in the sunlight.
I’m All Ears by OPI looks like a glassfleck jelly polish. The jelly finish allows the sparkle from the glassfleck to really shine through, and there’s a dimension that breathes life into a colour that would otherwise be ho-hum-run-of-the-mill.
Application & Formula
The formula was fantastic! It goes on smoothly, evenly, and effortlessly. It also self-levels beautifully, so even if you’re not the best nail painter, it’s quite forgiving.
However, because this has a jellyish quality, you may need to add extra polish onto the tips of your nails. I found that the polish shrunk a bit (even on its own before I applied a quick-dry top coat). If you put more onto your tips and wait a few minutes inbetween each coat, you’ll be fine.
Also important to note is that, although in my photos it looks like my nail line is highly visible, in real life, it wasn’t. I think the glassfleck helps to keep this jelly from appearing too sheer. (Also, I tend to apply medium coats, so that also helped opacity.)
Final Verdict: 7/10
OPI I’m All Ears is nice, but…haha, you know that I’m most interested in naughty polishes. And by that, I mean lacquers that have fierce attitude. I want them to growl instead of meow. So, while I liked this polish, it wasn’t love.
That being said, I put something over it, and then it was love. Want to know what it looked like after? I’ll show you in a future post, so stay tuned – I’ll show you shortly.
How do you feel about I’m All Ears? Can you believe that I’ve never seen the Dumbo movie and only read the book? Do you like glassfleck-jelly polishes?
