Simply Royal - OPI Sapphire in the Snow


My only blurple - OPI Sapphire in the Snow.

This is from one of my favourite OPI collections of all time - Holiday 2009. There is just something simply wonderful about this beautiful creme...


My thumb got really messed up (incident involving a microplane...) when I wore this manicure, but you get the idea! Gorgeous formula, interesting colour but deep and dark enough to not be too "crazy" for me.

The way this colour walks the line between blue and purple makes me think of royalty. Not that royalty would wear blurple polish, but I can see kings and queens of yore having velvet draperies and linens in this colour. Makes me want to grab a fur blanket, a chalice of wine, and go to a feast! Which sounds just like the holidays...

It does look so rich and luxurious, yet like a favorite cozy, warm scarf or sweater - perfect for winter!

Oh, I LOVE me some blurple polish! This was/is a MAJOR lemming of mine, but I've heard that Orly Wild Wisteria (which I do have) is a dupe, so I didn't buy it. I was thinking about using Wild Wisteria as the main color for my glitter accent mani (your last post put such a bee in my bonnet, I can't wait to try it!) with Sparkle-iscious as the accent nail, but the purple in Sparkle-iscious is much more red-based, so I'm not sure it will work. The search continues...

It looks so pretty! I never liked blurple, but I'm suddenly craving polish in that color.

I'd love a nice warm robe in that color. Looks lovely on you. Your poor thumb! Those microplanes really can rip up your skin. Ouch!

This is my favorite polish of all time! I can see Kate Middleton wearing it :)

@OnceBitten - Mmmm yes I see what you mean!

@Grace - I think that your combo idea might really work...because Sparkleicious has blue glitter in it too right???

@Silva - I'm not typically someone who likes blurples, but this one has my heart!

@Lucy - OOOoo a nice robe!! I feel lucky that the microplane mostly got my nail - and it got all polish, no nail or skin!

@Katherine - This is your #1?? Awesome!! So glad I posted it then :) And heck, Kate Middleton is almost royalty, right?

@Kajalpennan - Oh friend it was a great collection!!! Look it up, I think some of the colours are still easier to find.

@Morgan - It's kind of HTF now, but sometimes hair salons just have them out. Good luck!

This looks much nicer on you than on me, it comes out darker on me for some reason. I really wanted to love this colour too!
