OPI Roman Flame

OPI Roman Flame is an ancient polish, but one with apparently no history!  I've searched extensively, but I can't determine when or with what collection it was originally released (the number on the label is OPI L86, if anyone knows...).  It is a beautiful red-orange shimmer with gold microshimmer mixed in.  The formula is quite thin and a tad sheer (as really old OPI's tend to be), so it took 4 coats to obtain the opacity I wanted.  It has a slightly jelly-ish feel to it, as opposed to modern more metallic looking shimmers in the same color vein (Die Another Day, etc).  I love the gold particles suspended in this one - it adds a lot of dimension and interest, and the base color is soft and perfect for fall!  Enjoy -     >^..^<
