OPI Nail Lacquer - Blue My Mind 0.5 oz - #NLB24
This is an old black-label OPI, and it's a gorgeous red shimmer. The shade is a bright crimson and it looks beautiful on the nail.Formula-wise, it was extremely thick but I'm sure it's because my bottle is so old. Easily fixed by adding some nail polish thinner (NEVER use nail polish remover for that). Once I thinned it out, application was a breeze and the polish was opaque in two coats.I like this color a lot. I have a lot of reds in my collection but none that are exactly like this one. It's like a slightly lighter version of OPI's You Rock-apulco Red. If you like that one then Red My Mind might be worth seeking out.I'd buy it again. Recommended if you like reds!
Pretty but not that special. OPI's Blue My Mind is a vivid, bright, royal blue that dries to a super-shiny finish on the nail.Its formula isn't the best, this polish goes on very sheer. It took three coats for me to get it fully opaque. Surprising for a color this dark.Overall, I liked it but I didn't love it. I prefer Zoya's Song or China Glaze's Blue Year's Eve for a royal blue polish.Wouldn't buy this again.
This is a beautiful cobalt blue polish. It is a bit on the metalic side and has no shimmer. Blue My Mind is quite shiney on it's own without a top coat. With a top coat it really shines.The first coat is a bit streaky and sheer. With two coats I got full opacity. I can't speak to drying time as I used a QDTC SH Insta-Dri. The texture is nice and smooth but the consistency is a bit runny, so be careful upon application so that you don't color outside the lines!This comes packaged in the standard OPI polish bottle w/the Pro Wide brush. The brush works really well for application.OPI runs about $10 per bottle but you can often find them on sale for less. I would repurchase as I really love this color blue.I will update in a few days on the wear.UPDATE: I got good wear with this polish. It didn't chip until the 4th day of wear. Pretty typical for my polishes.
I usually stay away from dark colors when it comes to nailpolish, but I just couldn't resist this clear, blue color. I need long nails to rock this, or else it turns out a little "emo" on my tiny hands.The color itself is just stunning, and it's also an "all around the year" type of color. Goes along with summer just as good as winter. It's super classy and such a royal look! I will probably wear this A LOT in december. The very first time this lovely swatch caught my eye in the store, I knew it was coming home with me. The color itself simply just stands out. It's quite pigmented as well. One layer will cover a lot, but I do prefer at least two coats of this. It will look even fuller.Final summation:Sweet dreams are made of this, so go buy it asap.
Love this colour! Its quite a metallic blue, but as others have said, 1st coat is just so streaky! I usually apply two coats but it would be better with three because two can still look uneven. Not sure if I would repurchase because the formulation isn't great.
