I’ve used this color before when at the nail salon. The color seems consistent with when I’ve had my nails done previously, HOWEVER, this color needs a minimum of 4 coats. I did 2 coats on one hand and it wasn’t until I did my other hand that I realized how “splotchy” the color finis was. I assumed three passes would be enough but it’s not. First pic is 2coats, second pic is 3. If you look closely it’s transparent in some places and you can see my actual nail.
This is a really deep ultramarine blue polish that reads as blue even in dim lighting. The formula was a jelly and it was opaque in 2 coats. In the light there is this noticeable red shimmer that is beautiful. It did not seem to stain my nails after 3 full days of wear which is very good for me as I work in an art studio with my hands. This color is part of the OPI Iceland collection. I think there are a number of really great polishes in that collection and this one is a standout.
Turn On The Northern Lights was arguably the polish from the 2017 Iceland collection which caused the most excitement/hype. This polish is a blue/purple jelly with a gorgeous pink-gold shimmer which is extremely prominent, even in dimmer lighting. The formula is very good, two easy coats to full opacity with no streaking or patches. It dries quickly and to a shiny finish. It lasted well on the nail, around 5 days when paired with base and top coat. It did not stain my nails or the skin around them and the top coat really emphasised the shimmer. This is definitely a unique polish that anyone should add to their collection. I think it could be worn year round due to the shimmer and I also think it would be flattering on all skin tones. This polish is definitely the star of OPI Iceland 2017. I am very impressed and can highly recommend it.
