Sephora by OPI: BYOBoy

I remember when I first got BYOBoy thinking it was too bright for me to ever wear it, so it sat on the shelf, untried, for quite a while. But after my forays into oranges, nothing would ever be considered too bright again and I gave it a try. Not only that, I moved into brighter and brighter berry colors, so I may have to do an ombré of them, going from bright to brighter because now this "bright" shade seems old-lady and boring compared to some of the others I've since gotten.
How could I ever have though this was too bright???
The formula is as creamy as the other OPI cremes, but the Sephora bottle and brushes are a bit different — I think I might actually prefer the Sephora shape, more because it's got slim, graceful lines than because of any function. Application-wise, there is no difference.
See the pretty bottle?

As much as I love, love, love my grays and blues (and greens...) sometimes I just want to wear a girly-girl color like pink, ya know? How about you?

    1. It's also pretty close to China Glaze Fifth Avenue, but just a touch brighter.
