Did You Know About Didgeridoo?

Hey y'all!  I don't feel right to post about my OPI Germany Collection haul just yet because I don't have all of the pictures I would like and what not.  So I'll hold off on that for now.  Instead, I'm posting about a retired OPI color from the 2007 Australian Collection.  (At least I think that's the right year..I tried doing some good blogger research.)  The color is called Didgeridoo Your Nails?  I don't think I ever would have known about this color if it wasn't for the OPI App that I have on my iPhone.  It is a REALLY awesome app. in the fact that it has a tab that lists the entire collection of OPI!  And I mean EVERY color they've ever released.  And listed next to the name is whether it's retired or not.  So, I scrolled down the list and wrote down every single retired color so that I could later google some and see if I could still purchase them.  I've been able to purchase several retired colors from amazon.com-one of them being Didgeridoo Your Nails?  It is a really pretty pink shimmer and sometimes looks like it has sort of yellow shimmery undertone.  Y'all-I'm so bad at describing polish!  Haha.  My mom is laughing at me just trying to figure out how to explain the color of this one.  So don't hold me to my word!  Plus, you'll probably look at the pictures and be like "This girl does not know what she is talking about."  Haha.  The formula was great and I didn't have any problems with it.  If anything, it was a little runny, so I just put less polish on the brush than I normally did. It covered fine in two coats, but when I woke up this morning I put on a third just because I wanted to see how deep I could get the color.  Here is how it looks:

So I know that all of these pictures in different lights make this polish look completely different in every aspect.  I'm going to try to start posting just pictures of the polish outside in natural light.  I feel like the color is way more accurate then. 

Have you ever heard of this polish?  How many retired OPI colors do you own?  What is your favorite retired color?  Let me know!



  1. sounds like an amazing app! pretty color, definitely never heard of it before!

  2. I love this! I don't think I've ever seen it, either. And I didn't know there was an OPI phone app?!? I'm going to have to check that out.
