Untried Polish Challenge - Number 4 One colour

Today I couldn't wait and went onto number four. I think by the time the challenge ends I'll be posting at the same time as everyone else :p Today for the one colour I wanted something with a nautical theme, but nothing over the top since my students already tease me enough about my nails changing every class :p  I picked this lovely blue by OPI called I Saw...U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw and right away I was reminded of the 'navy girl' shorts that you would see in an old pin-up.
So I decided to do the one colour challenge and used little silver beads to make the buttons. I honestly don't know how I have not tried this blue before I already know I am going to wear it all the time. I loved the formula, it went on nice and opaque so that with one coat it was pretty well covered and the second coat it was the lovely dark blue you see here. It went on so smooth it just reminded me why I love OPI polishes.

This picture captured the colour a bit better as the top picture is a little dark and not shiny enough. 

As you can see there is a little wear on the tip because I ran out of time in the morning before work to take pictures so this is after a day of teaching.

I was happy with how they turned out, and the polish held up really well for one day since I tend to be a little hard on my nails. I don't know how I haven't used this yet I couldn't stop looking at the colour all day, although I am bias to blue  :p

  1. I love the color and the beads on the side! They're so cute!

    1. Yes me too! I love colour so much, I need to use it more! :D it was so fun.

  2. That's a gorgeous color. Where did you get the beads?

    1. I have those micro beads in about 10 colours, I have gotten them from all different places over the years, but you can get them on , or at the craft store (at Micheals they had them), or at dollar stores. :) I hope that helps! I love using them so much >>; haha

  3. This is such a great idea and totally reminds me of the sailer outfit! I want to try these asap!

    1. Thank you :) Yea, I want to wear this once summer comes to the beach! it matches with my swimsuit too.
