Nails of the Day – OPI Light My Sapphire

This is one of the first OPI polishes I ever bought. I haven’t worn it for years so I thought I’d dig it out and give it a little outing. Well, I don’t know why I ever stopped wearing it, it’s gorgeous!

It’s an extremely dark blue polish that is very nearly black. In fact, in some lights it is black, but really it’s blue (confused?!). There is the tiniest amount of shimmer in the polish that makes it almost metallic looking – it definitely doesn’t look like a shimmery finish, but superbly glossy.

It is one of those OPI polishes that definitely needs a second coat – one layer is very patchy and sheer. I used two coats and a coating of Seche Vite and it has lasted for two days on me before getting a bit of wear to the tips of my nails.

What do you think? Do you like it?

    That's lovely.

    I have to stay away from darker colours as I am absolutely rubbish at painting my nails (left hand always looks ok but the right one looks like my 2 year old did it for me!) 🙁
