Recent NOTD: OPI Sapphire in the Snow

I took a break from this year's holiday collections and went with one from last year for my nails last week: OPI's Sapphire in the Snow, a dark blue violet (a.k.a. blurple) creme. It pulls more blue on me than purple; these photos are pretty close, at least on the monitors I've viewed them on. I used two coats of this one.







Again, work kept me from changing polish midweek, though I did have to touch up some chips on day three. This is the second time I've used Orly Nailtrition under Salon Sciences Instant Artificials as my base and the second time I've had chipping earlier than I would have expected, so it seems those two don't play nicely together with my body chemistry.

  8. This blurple is gorgeous! I have similar issue with catrice base coat, although catrice does not chip, it bonds with the polish and gets off the nail in one piece, like a sticker ;)
