Currently On My Nails

I was going to title this something cheesy along the lines of "Summertime Night Blues" but I will spare you my creative efforts and get into it. I am no nail polish blogger nor am I super up to date on nail trends and whatnot but thanks to the magic of a little product called Nail Envy, my nails have been pretty damn awesome as of late so why not show them off and talk about a colour that has been an under the radar favourite over the years...

OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue


I didn't always love this blue. I have had it for years (it is part of OPI's permanent line but had originally come out with their India collection) and it was never something I gravitated towards but I swear, every time I did choose to paint my nails with it, I would get compliments on it... and this time was no exception.

It's a gorgeous deep blue with a subtle metallic shimmer that isn't loud or tacky but that adds just enough "oompf" to an otherwise dark moody nail. It's this fun hint of shimmer that makes this polish perfect for summer as well as winter (when the traditional dark colours come out to play). It takes two coats to get perfect opaque coverage, the application is great and lasting power is up to a week with no chipping. Win Win Win! If you're looking for a pretty dark blue that can transcend the seasons, I highly recommend you give this one a try.

I generally like to get my OPI products from eBay (various sellers depending on what colour I am looking for, but this seller is a great place to start and the shipping is always quick).

What's on your nails?

  2. Wow, the colour is amazing! It reminds me of Barry M - Navy. Although no doubt the OPI one is much more long wearing.

  14. Oh gosh, this is stunning! Love that it's rich and deep, but has such interesting shimmer. I recently bought Chanel Bel-Argus nail polish (from the Summer 2013 collection), which is a vibrant, rich blue with teal and purple shimmer. It's a new favourite! xo

  26. Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures. This can be a problem, since a carcass which has been poisoned will kill not only the targeted animal,

  29. Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض
