My Experience With Copious & an OPI

Hi guys! Today I wanted to talk to you about a website and seller I recently purchased from. If you don't want to hear about what I think of this website (I'm sure you'll want to!) then swatches of the polish I bought are at the bottom! :)

Not too long ago I signed up for this website called Copious through Chelsea at The Nail Network. This may be hard to believe but the only reason I really signed up was because you got a $10 credit to use on their site and of course after I saw that I signed up in no time. Okay now about the credit, you're probably thinking, "There must be a catch!", right? Well yes there is, kind of. Once you place your order, no matter how little the amount of the item you're purchasing is under the credit you have to pay 1 cent. Copious requires a minimum purchase of 1 cent so that's the reason why you have to pay that even if your credit covers your purchase. Pretty small catch, huh? So what is Copious? Well, it's sort of like a cross between two other websites I know because you can sell handmade items as well as purchased items. Kind of like the best of both worlds! One of the things I'm still not sure I love is how Copious measures the seller's reliability. If I am correct, their customer ratings depend on how many social connections they have, like facebook and twitter. Anyway I had an extremely good experience purchasing from them. I purchased my bottle of OPI - Jade is the New Black from Chole who sells mainly polish. She sent me my bottle wrapped in that plastic foamy stuff (I don't remember what it's called) and bubble wrap with a pink/blue emery board free of purchase! The polish arrived safe and super quick! I'd definitely purchase from Copious and Chole again! Oh shoot, just thought of one more con, I'm almost positive they only ship in the US :( Sorry you lovely international ladies! If you live in the US and do want to sign up, here the code you can use (it sometimes not always gives me $5 credit. I think only if you make a purchase with your own money for the first time I get the credit, idk.) http://copious.com/invites/4fccb5f78451e068fa000fa7

Package, emery board & wrapped up polish, two pictures of the color.

Now onto the color I bought! The formula is very thin and made a bit of a mess but was pretty easy to cleanup. I love, love, love the shade! It reminds me of the forest and Christmas trees but not necessarily Christmas if that makes sense. basically I don't look at it and think, "Holiday color".

Colors Used: NOPI - Base Coat Plus, OPI - Jade is the New Black 3 coats.
