Mannequin hands: OPI Sand in my Suit





I felt like a break from all the vamps. Also, truth be told, I was going into a school for a training/shadowing day, and I didn't want to stand out too much. Even despite wearing my best smart clothes, I still got mistaken for one of the students. Still, I know I'll appreciate looking like a teenager when I'm 40...Hopefully...




Anyway, this is OPI Sand in my Suit. I'm usually an NW15 in MAC (although I wear NC15 to cancel redness) and this fits my skintone pretty well. It's fully opaque in two or three coats depending on how careful you are. I'm not sold on the shimmer, though. It's a bit 'frosty granny' - you know, like the pearls that were rife in the early '90s. This last one is probably the most colour accurate - Autumn sunshine tends to make my skintone look a bit less cadaverous.


Please excuse the not-great application, by the way. My lumos topcoat turned to concrete (seriously, I've never seen anything like it) so I had to resort to a very old, almost empty bottle of seche vite. I made a bit (cough) of a mess on some nails.

That color is soooo close to your skin tone! I've never seen that before. Great look though, and very elegant.

That's very pretty! I like the look of nude nails, but I can't ever find the right color for me!

I like this, but I agree with it being too pearly, I have a similar colour by accesorize but its less pearly!

Not a bad shade. Yep, be glad that your mistaken for a student. When the day comes and your not, it's sad! I have a Sally Hansen that's me best skin color but I forget what the heck it is! There's another thing that aging, medication & menopause does, it eats your brain cells. I barely have any good memory left. At least I did remember it was a Sally Hansen.
