OPI Sapphire in the Snow

Oh hey, remember that time I had this super awesome giveaway where you could win three American Apparel polishes of your choice?  Oh wait, that's right now.  Want to enter?  Click here.


I don't know why I decided to use a dark polish from a holiday-themed collection in August, but I did.  And here it is.




Sapphire in the Snow is a reeeeaally nice indigo creme from the 2009 OPI holiday collection.  I got bubbling here because I applied the topcoat near a fan, which is a no-no.  But I was hot.  It happens.  Anyway, if you're looking for an indigo polish (or a "blurple," as a lot of people seem to like to call it...) then this is your polish.  The formula is flawless; it covers really nicely in two coats.  And it looks gorgeous on short nails.  Trust.


And now to vent a little:  I'm writing this at 10pm in the evening, and my power has been out since about 5pm.  What...the hell.  I went to a coffee shop to use the internet and do reading for [yet to be begun] class and I was sure that by the time I got home the power would be back.  Now I'm lying on my tummy in my living room stealing internet from the restaurant next door, eating lukewarm leftover pad thai that I saved from my fridge.  It's pitch-black up in here.  The battery on my laptop will only last a few hours at the most; I can't see to write, to shower...to do anything!  I'm so pissed.  How hard can it be to get the power back on?!  The people across the street from me have it.  I waaaaaant it back :(  When you guys are reading this it'll be Friday morning, so let's all hope that my little apartment has lights and internet again.  I'd really like to be able to shave my legs without worrying about accidentally slicing open my femoral artery or something.  


And with that lovely mental image, I will leave you all to contemplate the mysteries of modern electricity and OPI Sapphire in the Snow.

  2. SitS is one of my favorite polishes, and it looks beautiful on you! I die. True story: When I wore this two years ago, an Ulta SA asked me what it was and didn't know they carried it at the time!

    Hope you get your power back soon! Shaving one's legs in the dark is a skill worth praising, imo.

  6. I love love love Sapphire in the Snow... I guess I'll probably make do with Road House Blues but SitS looks so good on you! Sorry about the power outage - my laptop is doing a fun thing where it won't charge the battery so no coffee shop bloggery for me.

  7. Sapphire in the Snow looks great...I love a good vampy color. It looks like this one doesn't look black indoors, which is nice.

    Hope your power came back soon!

  8. You need to keep a battery operated good camping lantern - the kind with the long skinny florescent bulbs. They put out great light. Even if you are 'skinny' on possessions, stuff like that is important to have. I keep that, a battery op radio (you can get both together in one unit even). I live on the beach where it's windy and old above ground utilities caked with salt. We get a lot of power outages. I have to play girl scout and be prepared with water and such all the time - esp winter time.

  9. My husband has a flashlight fetish (which my 3YO has apparently inherited) so we have a bazillion flashlights all over the house. We even have one that you shake and recharge so it doesn't need batteries. Very handy for power outages which we have often. Gotta be prepared for hurricane season.
