Nail Polish: Sephora by O.P.I. in “Dark Room”

I polished my nails with SEPHORA by OPI Nail Colour in ‘Dark Room’ on Monday. (Check it out on Instagram!) It was my first time using this particular color, even though I purchased it at least a year ago. I kinda have a nail polish obsession… I keep buying it… and then buying more… And I might need a 12 step program for this, but anyway…

It took 2 coats to make it look even. The application was quite thin so it dried quickly. I was not happy with the overall results, but I did love the color. After a day, it looked dull, almost matte. This color is so dark, it really needed a high shine to it. I ended up applying a good coat of Sally Hansen Mega Shine. It looked a lot better after that.

Now it’s been a week and I ended up with a few chips on the tips, so I touched them up. I was pretty bored with this color in general so I decided I’d mix things up a bit and throw on London Butter Matte Finish Topcoat. The results? Definitely worth sharing!

I liked this MUCH better. It looked fine for a little while with a high shine top coat, but it just seemed to get dull again and look boring. Putting a matte top coat on really made it funky. Who would have thought that a shine free topcoat would have fixed it? Well, I love it.
