OPI’s AmazON AmazOFF

I haven’t been excited about a color in a  long time, as evident by the lack of posts! This OPI is the perfect blend of blue, green and turquoise. I’m staring at my nails as I type at work all day!

Be wary though, as Alli over at The Daily Varnish says “I do think OPI should have called this polish AmazON… Amazdoesn’twanttocomeoff”. This color is a menace to remove (as with most polishes in this shade).

The formula was a bit surprising for OPI though. Usually OPI requires 2 coats for full coverage – but this one needed a light third. I was a bit annoyed that after the second coat I could still see some streaking when I held my nails up to the light. So with a base coat, 3 coats of polish, and a top coat – my nails look and feel thicker than usual. But the gorgeous color makes up for all of it!

I couldn’t resist stamping it! Here it is with Cheeky’s CH15

We’ve got the blues… (Part 1)

Azure. Cobalt. Indigo. Sapphire. Denim. Cerulean. The list of blues is never ending!  Blue polishes have a special place in our hearts here at MasonLuxe, for it is one of the most versatile colors in the palette. What makes blue a staple in our nail polish collection is it’s ability to adapt into any occasion and time. Blues are truly cross-seasonal and be worn any time throughout the year. We had a chance to share with you some of our favorite blues in our previous posts, but we just didn’t feel that all of our blues had a true opportunity to shine. We’ve brought out our blues from our favorite brands (OPI, China Glaze, Orly, Essie, Julep, Zoya) to swatch and showcase them to you all!

Here are some of our favorite shots from Orly, OPI, Color Club, & Essie! Stay tuned for Part 2 featuring Juelp, China Glaze, & Zoya swatches!
