OPI My Address is "Hollywood"

While I was in the middle of my "30 Days of Blues", I kept saying that I was gonna need a week of boring pinks after I finished wearing so many blues.  So, that's what I'm going to do.  All this week, my manicures will be untried pinks in my collection.  

Today, I have for you one of the pinks from OPI's 2011 fall Touring America collection, My Address is "Hollywood"...

My Address is "Hollywood" is a salmon pink with pink and gold micro-shimmer.  I have seen swatches of this one where it looks very rosy.  However, on me, it was definitely salmon.  

Honestly, I'm kind of torn on this one.  I find the color itself to be a little boring.  That said, it's the shimmer in this one that makes me like it (be sure to enlarge the pictures, so you can see just how pretty this shimmer is... the bottle in the second picture is a great example).  

The formula was a little thin, but nothing unmanageable.  I was able to reach opacity in 3 coats.  

Also, I wanted to mention that when I first saw this color last year, I was a little perplexed by it being in a fall collection, as it seemed much more summery to me.  However, now that I am wearing it in the middle of spring, I definitely see how this would be more appropriate for fall.  Yes, it's a pink, but there is a warmth to it, that makes it seem much more fall-ish.

My Address is "Hollywood" is still readily available and OPI's polishes retail for $8.50.

My Address is "Hollywood" was sent to me for review.
