Hey There Polished People!!
I was soooo lucky recently to have a lovely nail fairy godsister send me my very first Sation polishes. I have been drooling over all of them and wishing I could find some for what feels like forever!! Cynthia (from Of Life and Lacquer) was so sweet to send me two pretty colors- Gimme Jimi (an opalescent grey/lavender) and Rock A Guy Blue (a pretty navy blue). Thank you Cynthia!! I also was able to get my hands on a couple of the OPI Skyfall polishes, one of which was The Living Daylights. When I saw Gimme Jimi and The Living Daylights I knew they had to be matched up. Let’s see how you like this pairing!
OPI The Living Daylights over Sation Gimme Jimi
Quick Review of The Living Daylights:
OPI The Living Daylights is made up of teal, rose, gold and silver medium hex glitter. The formula is typical of a glitter like this in the fact that it takes a little dabbing and pushing glitter around on your nail to get it just right. The base is nice though and not too thick and gloopy. I love this and would recommend you get it as well. It’s a multi-colored glitter, which we have definitely seen, but in colors that at least I have definitely not seen. 🙂
Quick Review of Gimme Jimi:
Sation Gimme Jimi is, like I said above, an opalescent grey/lavender polish. It has a bit of a blue sheen in some lights and looks steel grey in others. It’s a really pretty color. I guess this is classified as a frost, but I would definitely NOT call it a frost. It’s more of a duochrome than a frost, although don’t expect much because the color-shifting is minimal. That being said, it’s still beautiful. The formula is great, and I will definitely be looking for more Sation polishes.
Which of these nails do you like better- the shiny or the matte version? Do you have Sation in your area and/or have you picked up any of the OPI Skyfall polishes? I only grabbed this and Goldeneye, it seemed to me like there were 5 billion reds… just like the ChG Holiday Joy collection! But that’s for another post! :p Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
