So, I painted this manicure yesterday afternoon. I started with OPI Light My Sapphire, a corny title that reminds me of that song by The Doors, Light My Fire. Reminds me of an ex, lmao! This color was awesome, but I was feeling something flashier. Here's Light My Sapphire alone:
Now, on to the real goodies! After the cut you'll see more pics of this holo goodness, plus a picture of my awesome nail mail I received today!!
I snapped this as I was getting into my car after work. Goooorgeous!

ANYWAY...back on topic!!
What I Used:
1 coat OPI Nail Envy
2 coats OPI Light My Sapphire
1 coat OPI DS Original
1 coat Seche Vite Top Coat
I don't like layering too much because you can sort of see the polish underneath and I don't like using 2 coats of expensive holos like this (yes I am a cheap ass). This polish is gorgeous in the sun, but not so gorgeous in the shade. Maybe I'm just picky. Anyway, holo-wise, DS Original is amazing. It's absolutely stunning, but I think I may retire this one for a while as the nice weather is disappearing.
Time to put my focus back on the dark polishes! ;-)
