OPI Samoan Sand | Review


'How about another color?' - these are the instructive words from my one and only grandmother (yup, this one), aimed at me on a recent shopping session. When you have one shopaholic, generous lad like her, the constant flow of neutral black, white, fifty shades of grey, nude, and soft pink items upon her receipts are countless - not to mention the beauty products, as well.
Regardless, I'm a neutral lover inside and out (minus that when it applies to food). It's not out of hopes to be 'boring', hidden in society, or any other reasons as stated on 'What Not to Wear'. Let's be honest, how many neon pink, bumble bee yellow, or sunshine orange shades do you see upon the French runways? I can't vouch for all of them, but if Chloė (my favorite, lust-worthy brand) doesn't do it, neither will I.

The OPI Nail Colour in Samoan Sand has been getting some wear time upon my nails beaucoup, beaucoup, beaucoup since its purchase in early July. The shade - a taupe with a hint of peach and pink shot through to make it that little bit more au naturel. For a beauty lover, like myself, it imparts a chic, 'my nails but better' manicure. To my dad, he questions whether I've actually got nail polish on - score! Like any OPI nail polish, the brush is oh so suitable for a quick slap and dash application. In fact, I like these brushes so much more than that on an Essie (but the white lidded shades are far superior - shhh). The lasting power is pretty darn good as well - I'd say about four to five days before you compulsive filles (*translation* girls) will need a touch up, but since it's nude, you could definitely squeak out a few more days. It's slightly sheer, but not as sheer as my other chic shade. One coat doesn't do it for me, but two or three is magnifique.

So, I take that I've achieved a chic, Chloė inspired, French-esque manicure that is just as gorgeous as this handbag....just save yourself some cash and go for the nail color.

  2. Yes, but they could be worse (Butter London - I'm looking at you). The brushes are pretty darn fab, though.

  4. Oh - you've tried it? Yes, I can understand how it may only look good on certain skin tones. Unfortunately, mine is quite pale and pink (ughhh) which is why this nail polish looks okay.

  5. I've been on the hunt for this and hopefully, I'll be able to try it out soon. I'm looking for a colour that's good for that polished look and this looks like it could be the one!

  6. Best of luck! Essie 'Mademoiselle' is also a really nice, polished shade. If you're looking for a nude, Butter London launched a collection of skintone-esque shades and they come in a range of colors. You should check those out, as well!
