Recent NOTD: Sephora by OPI Lost without My GPS

I'm not sure what to call this bright creme from $OPI—coral? orange red? red orange?—but whatever it is, it felt perfect for the last days of summer. I didn't write down how many coats I used; I think it was two. It's definitely pigmented enough that it was a bit harder to clean up than I expected.





Despite this being nice and bright, after a few days I was itching to change it, so I added a coat of OPI I Lily Love You and another layer of top coat. The flakies in this one are on the chunky side and did not all want to lay down nicely, but I forgave them because they were so entertaining to look at.









I need to try I Lily Love You over some other base colors; I'm not sure the coral shows it to its best advantage. Any suggestions?

  1. It might be cool over a deep red or a black! You know I'm not a glitter freak- but I'm trying!

  4. I am starting to like these coral colors more and more. I especially like ILLY over it. I would say maybe over a dark green? It looks really nice over dark teal too.

  13. I love the coral but I hate the name Sephora gives to polishes! They're not very feminist. But ILLY looks spectacular.

  20. Funny...when I opened the post and seen the colour, I thought, great colour for end of the summer...and then you said the same thing in your post! Its a great choice!

    I did a mani on the weekend using Misa Glitz, Glamour, Smile for The Camera layered with ILLY and it was cool...but I like it better when I used FP Amethyst Atelier as the flakies pop better with the darker colour (IMHO)!!
