Have You Seen My Limo?

So I'm was never one to wear colored nail polish on my nails- solely because my nails were so thin they would break and split which would lead me to chip the nail polish off and leave a nasty look on my nails. But since taking a vitamin for my hair, skin and nails my nails have grown long and strong which made me want to try color on them for once. I've been getting monthly mani's and weekly color changes- and I have to say this is my greatest find so far this season: 2007's OPI "Have You Seen My Limo?"!

This polish is a dark brownish-purple base with greenish-silver shimmer. My mother thinks it look like a deep eggplant color. If you like vampy colors, chances are you will like this one.

I always start with a base coat-that way the nail doesn't get stained. I've been using Sally Hansen "INSTA-GRIP Fast Dry Base Coat". Only because I'm impatient and don't have time to wait around for each coat to dry. I then proceed with the color.

As with most OPI polishes, "Have You Seen My Limo?" applies easily, due to its nice consistency and extra pro wide brush. However, I find that I need to apply three coats to eliminate all streakiness. When the salon does it they achieve the look I want with two coats. I then follow up with a coat of Sally Hansen "Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat". I've been using this top coat for a year or so and love it!

This color usually last for about three days and then you get the minor tip wear. I usually put a thin layer to the top coat on around day two just to keep the shine. If you ever find this color, which is sadly discontinued, but can be found on eBay, buy it! You'll love this color! It's a great fall color.
