OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know? Swatches & Review

OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know Swatches & ReviewWhen I heard about OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know?, the first thing that came to mind was a joke from the musical, Mary Poppins.

Do you remember the joke about a man with a wooden leg named Smith? (The awful punchline was: What was the name of his other leg?) Haha, it was really cheesy when I was a kid, but it still makes me smile now.

Wooden Shoe Like to Know? from the OPI Holland Collection reminds me a lot of Whoppers…but maybe I’m craving something chocolatey as I write this. ;)

OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know? Review

Colour

Wooden Shoe Like to Know? by OPI is a dusty brown that seems to have the slightest touch of purple. To the naked eye, it’s definitely a milk-chocolatey brown, but when I used the camera’s flash, that’s when the base colour gets exaggerated and I saw some purple.

This brown isn’t like your traditional dark, rich brown. This one looks soft and cozy…or tasty like a Whopper. ;)

Finish

This is a shimmery nail polish. The shimmer is subtle, but you can see if when the light hits it just right.

I could see gold and some orange shimmer, which mesh together well to save this polish from looking flat. (I think that a lot of milky browns have a tendency to look drab.)

Application & Formula

OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know? has a runny formula, and I found that to achieve total opacity, I needed 3 coats.

Because this polish is watery, I suggest using thinner coats than you normally would so that you can avoid flooding your cuticles.

Pros

  • Milky brown polish has shimmer, which livens it up
  • Cute name
Cons

  • Runny formula requires extra care when applying

Final Verdict: 6/10

This isn’t the kind of colour that I’d normally gravitate toward, which is why I gave it a Final Verdict score that’s low. When I reach for a brown, I usually want it to be dark like OPI Espresso Your Style!

I’ll definitely wear this again, but I need to be in the mood for a milk-chocolately brown.

Too bad it’s not scented to smell like chocolate. Hmm…I need to get off the computer and eat some chocolate now… ;)

What’s your favourite kind of chocolate to eat? Do you wear brown nail polish? Have you ever worn wooden shoes?

    LOL…this is what I’m wearing right now.

    I was drawn to the shimmer, but you’re right. The light does have to be just right for it to really show a lot, but it’s enough to keep the color from looking blah.

    Chocolate? Have you tried the Lindt truffles? Those things are seriously dangerous. They attack without warning and force you to eat them in self defense. At least I can hide the Dove Dark Chocolates in the freezer where I can’t hear their siren song once the door is shut. If you’ve never tried them frozen, it’s so good and it’s a good way to refrain from eating the whole bag at once. :-D

      Hey karen!

      Hahahaha, nope, I haven’t had any Lindt truffles before, but those DO sound dangerous…and really intelligent, too! ;)

      I’ve tried freezing some chocolates and eating them like that, but I’ve never done that with the Dove Dark Chocolates. Hmm…now I’m craving some! Look what you’ve done. Now you’re just as dangerous as the Lindt truffles! :P

    Mmmm chocolate sounds so good right now. I’d really like to just to go home right now and eat nutella out of the jar (or go back to sleep)!

    I’m not a huge fan of this colour, I think I already have one simliar to it by essie that I never wear. It looks yummy and cute in the bottle but not really to my taste when applied. Hee!

      Hey Lulu!

      Hehe, I like the “go back to sleep” comment. Made me giggle! ;)

      Haha, I also got a kick out of when you said that it wasn’t to your TASTE! ;) Clever pun!

    This one and Gouda Gouda Two Shoes are both nice soft neutrals. I like them and think they’re excellent work-appropriate colors (the shimmer is a nice touch), but…yeah, I’m still drawn more to glitters and bright shimmers. I’ve definitely never worn a brown polish before (I’m kind of afraid of it looking like poop or something) but this shade of brown reminds me of a chocolate milkshake :). Or maybe it was just your references to Whoppers? haha

      Hey Jessica!

      HAHAHA, the first time I wore a brown polish, I also thought that it might look like a poopicure. :P That might be why I don’t often wear many brown polishes.

      Hey Opalline Star!

      Haha, here, we also have burgers called Whoppers. :P

      A while back, I saw that someone did burger nail art. Actually, it was pretty funny. I want to try it sometime! It’s totally the kind of silly nail art I love! :D

      Hey Melissa!

      It’s so hard to find the perfect brown polish. It’s hit or miss, and unless they have a lot of shimmer or are really vampy, they don’t usually call out to me, either.

      Hey PinkGlitter!

      YES, OPI is amazing for coming up with unique names for their polishes. Their names make the polishes even more collectible. :)

    Now you have me craving chocolate Mary, lol! This is a really pretty color on you. I love the shimmer in it. Wish the formula was better though.
    I don’t wear brown too often, but when I do, I usually go for Aldo Chocolate Brown. It really looks like chocolate ;0). I would have to say one of my favorite chocolates is Cadbury. The one with the roasted almonds in it. So yummy!!
    Oh, and no, I’ve never wooden shoes. I don’t think they would be very comfortable, lol.

      Hey Marisa!

      Hehe, you can put the chocolate in your ice cream! Mmm…so now we’re even. You made me crave ice cream, and then I made you crave chocolate. ;)

      Mmm…chocolate-covered almonds…*Drool*

    I always have chocolate on the mind so this post doesn’t help this chocoholic at all! :P I usually gravitate towards dark chocolate; I love how it gets you the chocolate kick without that overly sweet taste. Apparently, I run the extremes as lately I’ve been craving white chocolate more. :P

    This is a rather pretty brown! I’m generally not a fan of the color but it does feel very fall to me. I’m curious to see how it compares to Cult Nails Power Thief, tho. Mainstream vs indie brand! :D

      Hey Carmela!

      Mmm…white chocolate! When I was a kid, it was my favourite kind of chocolate to eat. My parents used to buy me a white-chocolate bear from Laura Secord and put it in my stocking every Christmas. :)
