OPI Yoga-Ta Get This Blue!

Hello you lovely people! Two more days till Christmas! For a lot of people it's the busiest time of the year, but because I'm not in charge of cooking in my house, I'm pretty much free to do whatever I want. Just finished decorating the big tree today and that's it. Christmas may very well come! And some snow wouldn't hurt either. 

Today I want to show you the second of the polishes the lovely Boarbb sent me for my birthday. It's not a holiday color per se (it came out in the spring collection of 2008), but I did some holiday nail art to make it season appropriate. I will show you that later. But for now, let's take a look at this gorgeous polish! 

OPI Yoga-Ta Get This Blue!, 2 coats, no top coat, artificial light
This is a beautiful navy polish packed with light blue shimmer. This looks blue in any light, it will never look like you have black polish on. The shimmer comes out to play in the light and it can look almost turquoise sometimes. This is just the perfect navy polish and I can see why it's a classic owned by pretty much every nail polish aficionado. 

Application was flawless as usual with OPI polishes. It was opaque in two coats. I must say that I'm kinda beginning to like the ProWide brush. Now that my nails are longer I don't make a mess with it and I really like the rounded top that makes for a perfect cuticle line. This dries to a very shiny finish. All my photos are without any top coat! 

this is a direct light photo (no light box) so you can see the beautiful shimmer in all its glory 
another light box photo, look how shiny! 
 I really love this and I'm so thankful to Boarbb for gifting it to me! I'm also looking forward to trying this with a matte top coat. I think it would make a perfect suede finish! Stay tuned for some Christmas stamping using it as a base!
