Accessorize ~ Sapphire with OPI ~ Servin’ up Sparkle



Accessorize ~ Sapphire
Metallic dark grey with a blue tone
&
OPI ~ Servin’ up Sparkle
Clear base with silver glitter and holographic hexagons

When everything else fails, use glitter. If things still don’t work, you’re obviously just not using enough glitter!

I’ve become really fond of Accessorize’s nail polishes. This one is another one from the Metalized series of one coaters. The formula is so nice and so easy to work with, and I always love me a nice one coater. The colours aren’t extraordinary, but they’re really nice base colours for something else. So, here’s a pic of one coat of Sapphire:



The polish dries quite fast, which is another lovely feature. On this pic you get to see it from a different angle:


I was in the mood for something simple (yeah, I know you’re thinking ‘WTF’, right?) and yet shiny and sparkly. So I dug out an OPI polish from the Serena Williams’ Glam Slam collection from spring 2011, namely “Servin’ up Sparkle”. It’s a lovely glitter that can sparkle up pretty much any mani! I applied one coat, and waited like forever for it to dry, then applied one coat of Catrice Quick Dry & High Shine top coat, and Boo-ya! My mani was done:


Here’s the mandatory blurred picture, so you can see the holo glitter :D



This may be simple, but I love it. What do you think?

Opacity: 10/10

    1. THank you, and yes, it sure does. I wish OPI would dry faster on my nails though :)
