Nails of the Day - Road House Blues

I've not done a Nail of the Day post since I started my mission to rescue my nails back from bad Winter health... but finally I'm not to embarrassed to share the state of my nails with the world!

I know pastels are in for Spring/Summer but I'm off out tonight with the girls and this colour will look fab with the outfit I've chosen (hopefully will get this up in a separate post if I can manage to get some decent photos later).

Road House Blues is from OPI's Autumn 2011 Touring America collection and is a gorgeous dark midnight blue - I'd say it almost looks black when I'm inside but once the light catches it you can really pick out the rich blue. Its creamy, really glossy and goes opaque easily after two coats.

Now usually I'm not a fan of any varnish that's too dark or blue-ish as it doesn't seem to work with my skin tone and I find it makes me look pale and brings out the blue in the veins on my hands. Having said that, I absolutely love this colour from OPI... the finished result is like a luxurious, creamy inky blue and looks amazing in natural daylight.

In fact I love OPI full stop - I find it easier to apply than other brands, the quality of the varnish and the shape of the brush means even though I'm a bit cack handed, I've managed to get two coats of this dark colour on without making a complete mess of it. 

What do you think of the colour? Would you wear it?

    1. Thanks Nicole, as I said - its unusual for me to find a blue this rich that looks so nice without making me look pale and veiny!
