OPI Tulsa Tootsie Roll-a

I believe this color is from 1997, and OPI got in some legal trouble over the Tootsie Roll  issue. If I'm wrong- someone please correct me- my memory is shot out.
Anyway, I think this is a beautiful color, and it does wonders for my skin-tone! Irl, there is a crimson glow deep within the color that my camera could not pick up. I found this at a local Dusty along with OPI Amarillo Almondine.
While opaque in 2 coats, this polish never really dried. 4 hours after the second coat, it was *still* tacky. I went to bed 6 hours after application (no top-coat), and when I woke up, there were sheet marks all over it.
I started some fauxnad stamping with plate H23, and mixed Konad SP in dark evergreen(?)  w/ CG Metallic Muse. I'm not crazy about how it turned out- not enough contrast. I should have used the much lighter Amarillo Almondine as the base.

Hey, honey! I hate the color. It still looks kind of cool on your nails. Go figure! =)

The color is really interesting. I'm sorry it wouldn't dry, that really sucks. Love the Konad though.

If you're interested, I can decant some of this (or anything else I have that you like)and send it to you.
