Sephora by OPI, Caribbean Cocktail, $9

This gorgeous sparkle and shine filled metallic blue nailpolish is another awesome addition to my always growing nailpolish collection. This particular bottle comes from the Havana Nights collection that I've been reviewing each week. Caribbean Cocktail is a bright blue that is sprinkled with tiny silver sparkles that give it a metallic effect. This most definitely a eye catching nail color (always a plus) and a very unique shade of blue for me.

I used two coats of polish for this and a top coat. The polish goes on very evenly and stays on strong. This polish (and most of the Sephora by OPI polishes) dry very quickly as well. I love a fast drying polish because I am always that person who messes up her nails at the salon 5 minutes after they finish.

This polish is particularly perfect for toes. The metallic blue just looks really good as a pedicure. This is one of two metallic polishes in the Havana Nights collection, the other one is a gold color. I like the metallic because it is really different for the summertime. And how many chances do you get to show off your pedicure in the colder months? You might as well experiment with different nailpolish textures!

Final verdict:
Cost:$9 from Sephora
What does it look good with?: A tan! this would look so good if your skin had a nice golden flush from the sun (but don't forget your sunscreen people!).
Repeat offender?: I wouldn't buy this particular polish again but I'll always get the Sephora by OPI polishes! I think this definitely opened up a whole new world of different metallic polishes for me though!

  3. that is such a pretty color, it looks ever better on the nail than in the bottle (one of my fave things about OPI). Mama may have to get herself Carribean Cocktail now. 33 OPIs and counting... aint no shame in my nail polish game.
