Sephora by OPI, Havana Dreams, $9

As promised here is the second review (out of six) from the Havana Nights nailpolish from Sephora by OPI. At first I wasn’t sure if I would like this pale blue polish very much but ever since I put it on it has really grown on me. The light blue color is very different from other polishes I own, and even different from the rest of the polishes in this particular collection. If I wanted to really analyze the collection as a whole (hey, I was an English major!) then I would say this light blue is probably representing the clear blue Havana sky (lol, gosh that was corny).

So here is the drill with the polish, you need at least two coats to get the color. The first coat barely shows, the second captures the blue, but three coats is definitely where it becomes perfect. In these photos I have three coats of polish plus a topcoat. It seems like most of these light colored pastel polishes are formulated differently because they never go on as thick and always need a few coats.

I love how bright and happy this looks! This is a great pop of color and definitely gets noticed. I’ve gotten several compliments on my nail color since I put it on and will keep it in circulation all summer long.

Final verdict:
Cost: $9
Does it chip quickly?: I’ve had it on for 3 days and don’t have any chipping, that is more than other polishes can say! I predict that it probably won’t chip much for at least another 3-4 days since it hasn’t yet.
Other uses: By “other uses” I mean this would be a great base color to decorate. I think this would be a great base color with a hot pink leopard print design on it. It could also be used to make the leopard spots. I promise that I will do this and take pictures to show you guys one of these days!
Repeat offender: Yup!
