OPI - DS Lapis

Here's a quick mani I did up.

OPI - DS Lapis - This is a royal blue with silver, its actually a matte polish but here I used a top coat on it. I think I like it better with the top coat.

OPI - Haven't The Foggiest - This has become my absolute favorite silver metallic polish. The coverage and application on this one is awesome.

China Glaze - Up All Night - This is an old dark blue shimmer.

Topped with Seche Vite

Happy November everybody. Today I have another hairstick mani. This particular stick is called Mint Water from my favorite stick maker Eaduard's Hairsticks. He has lots of great stuff which you can check out here
