It's You...

Happy Friday everyone!  Today's lacquer is from Nicole by OPI's Something About Color Fall 2011 Collection.  It's not me, It's Blue is a gorgeous steel gray blue shimmer with an amazing hint of gold fleck.  Depending on the lighting this shade can even look purple.  To me this color is unusual and I love that I can't remember seeing or owning anything like it before.

Application for this lacquer is tricky.  It's a thin polish and in order to reach opacity I fear I may have needed five coats.  Below I used two thin and third generous coat and in intense lighting I could see some thinner patches. I did find this polish too thick to be a top coat.  I think it would work best with a white base coat.  I still love this color though.

Because I can't leave anything alone, I added a coat of OPI Red Shatter.  I love the formula for the Red Shatter even though I don't use it often.  It's almost jelly/sorbet like and it's much easier to work with and more forgiving than the Black Shatter.

Could you see yourself rocking this lacquer?  Do you know of any dupes?

Disclosure: This lacquer was purchased by The Lacquer Factor.

  3. The red over the silver looks great. I have heard of the black shatter, but I didnt know they had other colors out. Thanks for sharing!
