With Spring starting I thought this would be one of the last chances to throw on a more Fall/Winter polish look – although I must admit I don’t follow polish color trends too much, if I like I’ll wear it regardless of season. Any who, I was at ULTA the other day, just browsing and making my hair appointment (the blond will soon be gone), when I noticed a clearance section of polishes near check-out and found this beautiful OPI polish (pictured above) for … wait for it … $3.38!!!! For those of you who may not know, OPI polishes run at about$9 per bottle so when you can find one for less than $4 it is beyond a steal. Needless to say I had to get it, although it’s not a typical Spring color (which is perhaps why it was on clearance) I thought it is absolutely beautiful and perfect for even next Fall/Winter, but also perfect for this Spring/Summer for when I feel like showing off my darker/edgier side.
This polish is called Sleigh Ride For Two and is a very deep purple, I would even say purple-brown. As with all OPI polishes the formula is amazing, super easy to apply, and best of all dries pretty fast. To achieve this look I started out with my NUANCE Salma Hayek Protective Base Coat, which I must say I’m still on the fence about, then applied two coats of Sleigh Ride For Two, and finished the look with my ItStyle Top Coat.
I must say that I am quite happy with this look. It’s a lovely rich/dark shade, which I always love, and perfect to add a little edge to your Spring style!
Thank you all for reading, and I will talk to you all soon!
