The Polish Addict’s Top 20 Polishes of All Time: #20 OPI – Tickle My France-y

Twice a year, the girls on the Nail Board vote for their top 20 polishes. I’ve been promising you guys my personal top 20 for a while and I’m finally getting around to it. My top 20 has some classics in it but there are also a few colors that people might not expect. First up is # 20, this year’s OPI Tickle My France-y.

This color is so subtle, so chic, just perfect.  As completely ridiculous as this may sound, I rarely wear colors more than once but I’ve worn OPI Tickle My France-y a whopping 3 times. This color has become my go-to ‘professional’ color. As some of you may know, I’m applying for a position as an Assistant State Attorney. It’s a 3 round interview process. I’ve worn TMFy to two of the interviews already and plan to wear it one more time this Monday for my final interview. I almost feel like this color gives me confidence, maybe even a little bit of luck. If I get the job on Monday, I guess we’ll know for sure. Even if TMF-y isn’t bestowed with magical job granting powers, it’s still an excellent color. It definitely belongs in everyone’s collection. (You can read my original post about TMF here.)

  2. Steph (Nail Juice) Says:

    I agree! A beautiful colour, I have also worn it a few times :D

  3. Mariah Says:

    Oh man, you’re only gonna give us piccys one at a time? rotfl. I’m such an addict!

    That is a beautiful color though!!

  4. Kyosuke Says:

    I have to agree with Mariah, if you’re going to give us 20 of the best colors ever (that is if we share the same tastes, but I don’t think you like any weird polish anyway ^^ Does that even exists ? :p) you’re also turning me into a complete addict !
    Wait… I’m already addicted anyway, your blog name was so carefully chosen ^^

    I like this one, and yay for “France” XD (okay I know there’s no relation ^^)

    Thank you Stephanie !

  5. Marsha Smith Says:

    Good luck with your job interview! I’ll be thinking about you.

  6. andie Says:

    TMF is my favorite as well! I just bought a back up yesterday….it’s so perfect and for some reason, I think it is the smoothest polish I’ve encountered. Especially for a nude/sheer pink. I love it. Would you be able to compare it to the Misa High Waist Hue? I’ve got that one but I haven’t compared it yet…it looks similar but not quite……
    Thanks for your beautiful pix as always! (=

  7. Melanie Says:

    How funny! I’m wearing TMF right now. My favorite nude creme of all time!

  8. Brooke 2.0 Says:

    Good luck on the third! You’ll knock em dead :) And I also love TMF, sooo pretty!

  9. Grace Says:

    Aww, good luck! TMFy is the polish I plan on using for grad school interviews – I hope it has a little bit of luck in there for us both!

    Hi Stephanie, I was trying to send you an e-mail, but I got this message:

    Has it happened before or is it just my usual luck?

  20. mochachoc Says:

    How weird is that? I haven’t worn this polish since I got it. I put it on and click on your site and voila! I do love it. Today I gave it a layer of sparkle and its so pretty. All the best with your interview.

  21. Kyosuke Says:

    Hello dear Stephanie,

    Alison – Thank you. : ) It’s up in the air now but we’ll see. *crosses fingers*

    Shryh – That makes me SO happy. I get pretty upset when people tell me they got something I recommended and they didn’t like it. I’m not sure what’s going to happen with that job, but hopefully everything will work out.

    I completely agree about TMF!! I work in government so I need a reliable nude that’s nearly-not-there and this one is just the perfect match with my skintone. OPI rocks!
