NOTD : Blue Lapis Inspired



I wanted to try something different with my nails today. I've been sporting solid colors lately and I remembered that I purchased the limited edition OPI - Man With The Golden Gun Top Coat.

This would've been even more perfect if the gold flecks were much tinier and refined to actually look like the Blue Lapis stone. The gold flecks looked like tiny islands instead across the blue ocean. Haha :P However, I still love how it turned out. :)

Left to Right: OPI Man With the Golden Gun and OPI Dating a Royal

I used these two to create this look. First, I applied it with one coat of  OPI - Base Coat (not shown above). I always have to put base coat whenever I do my nails because this definitely avoids yellowed nails. Also, this also extends the life of your manicure. :) That's basically it! 
I normally put some drying drops after the top coat for quick drying but I ran out. :( 


Have a good day! :)

  10. I remember the Skyfall collection and I purchased a few polishes myself but I skipped this one! Now I'm wondering why :( I love how you wore it, and it would be fantastic with a cranberry or wine color come Christmas, oh my! ;o
