O.P.I Nail Polishes

I have never been much of a nail polish collector. Therefore I normally go for a mani/pedi to a salon every few weeks to fix up my nails and color them. This habit has proved for me to be way too pricey especially in a city like Dubai, where I live by the way, as it is quite an expensive place.
What I have decided to do is instead of going to a salon every time I want a different color is that I buy some nail polishes.
A few weeks ago, I bought the Caviar Manicure by Ciate in navy blackish color and when I applied it
I felt that the formula for the nail polish was too watery. But when I put the second coat on of the nail polish it surprisingly went on very well, then I just poured the small caviar beads on to the wet nail. The end result was absolutely beautiful.
I don't have a picture of it, but next time I do it I will be sure to upload it here.

Now that I am back in Pakistan for my summer holidays, I ordered seven nail polishes online, all from O.P.I. One base coat, one top coat and five color polishes.

The colors I got are:

O.P.I - Aphrodite's Pink Nightie

O.P.I - Samoan Sand

I received my package today, and when I got my hands on it, I was like a little kid in a candy store. I just wanted to try all of them, but I settled on Samoan Sand.

Samoan Sand goes on very sheer, so if you want a bit more coverage this might not be for you unless you have loads of time for multiple coats.

I went for three coats of Samoan Sand, with a base coat and finished it off with a top coat. OMG! I am so in love with this color. I'm a huge sucker for nude/neutral colors and this one does my fix, quite brilliantly.

This is how it looks on me with flash and without a flash in a room.

O.P.I nail polishes in UAE can be purchased in Sephora and in Pakistan, you can buy them from  where I purchased them from and I also believe some salons sell them too.

That is all for today.

Let me know what you guys think!
