OPI - Ogre-The-Top Blue

Hi everyone!!  Well it's Monday again!  Nothing else to say about that, the weekend is over :(.

Today I have a polish that I knew I had to have after seeing it on Stephanie's blog, Imperfectly Painted.  Ogre-the-Top Blue is an awesome blue creme that makes me think of water.  It's the only way I know how to explain it.  It applies so easily and was opaque in one coat.  I did experience some patchiness on a few nails though, so I decided to add a second coat.  I used no base or top coat in these pics.

Look how shiny it is without a top coat!  I'm so in love with this blue and I'm excited that I was able to get it.  I purchased it for about $4 on Amazon, but it came up to $8 with shipping.

I must be honest and admit that there was some staining when I removed the polish.  Thankfully, I was only swatching and it wasn't too bad.  But if you wear this one, base coat is definitely needed!

Do you have this polish in your stash?  What do you think of this shade of blue?

  7. when I started reading your post and you said not base coat, I thought mmmm I bet her nails are stained, but I'm glad you only did it as a swatch! I have this polish in my stash, as a matter of fact I was looking at last night while I was trying to purge my stash... and it made the cut so I need to use it now. Looks very pretty on you
