Bows and Blue

Good evening! So, I was at Ulta a little while back, and I was rummaging through their clearance shelf. Of course, I had to buy as many as I could, cause I can't turn away from clearance racks....they get me every time!

Any who, I found a WONDERFUL OPI polish that I am DYING to show you all!! Here we go!

Here's what I did:
1 coat Nail Magic
1 coat Gelous
2 coats OPI - I Vant To Be A-Lone Star
I stamped the bows with BM-317 and Konad Special Black polish, and with a Black Kiss Striper polish, I added the "ribbon" of the bow.
Topped it off with 1 coat Seche Vite

First off, I wasn't sure I was going to like this color. It seemed....boring in the bottle. It is pale blue with a hint of shimmer. But boy was I surprised when I slapped it on my nails. I absolutely love this polish. The application was beautiful, clean up = cake, and the color is perfect. It is blue without YELLING blue...if you know what I mean. Such a beautifully pastel blue. If you don't own this polish, run to your nearest Ulta! Hopefully they'll still have a bottle!

I imagine this manicure on a bride, for some reason. Maybe because if I were to get married again, I would wear this polish to knock the blue off the old wives list. But I would make the bows white instead of black.

I'm not a huge bow person...which is why I've never done them before. But I really think they made this manicure even better!

What do you think of this manicure? Do you like bows? What about the color??

Until next time....


Disclosure *I was not paid for this review. I was not given the polish for this review. I paid for the polish with my own money. This is purely my own opinion, thoughts, and suggestions about this polish.*


  1. I love the colour! I think I have an essence one that is the spit of that and I love it. I have really pale skin but it looks so pretty on :)

    1. Really? I can't find Essence very well here in Oklahoma. And Ulta has a very limited selection! But I will be on the look out for it to see how close it is!! I think this polish is perfect for any skin tone! <3
