Shine on with OPI

Posted on

Disclosure:  This polish was supplied by Sleek Nail for review.

Last month I mentioned how online retailer Beyond Polish is now Sleek Nail.  They are definitely “beyond polish” and I’m thrilled that they’re carrying a huge selection of Nyx Cosmetics makeup, my new favorite drugstore brand.

But let’s shine with some polish today, specifically a brand-new polish from OPI’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” line called Shine For Me.

Shine For Me is a silver and blue dazzler.  It’s a clear base with silver shimmer and tiny blue glitter.  The formula was comfortably thick, but since the base is clear I needed several coats for good coverage.  I used three coats of Shine For Me and then a clear top coat to smooth out the very slight grittiness of the glitter.

Under indirect snowy outdoor light and then with the flash:

The polish itself is so sparkly that the camera flash pic is almost too shiny!  The sheerness of Shine For Me means it would also make a great top coat for other colors — perhaps over black or over a medium gray such as another polish in this OPI collection, Embrace the Gray.  Grey.  Gray.  Whatever.

I love blue polish and I love silver polish, so I love Shine For Me.   It’s not just a wintery color either and would be great any time.

As previously posted, Sleek Nail has a deal especially for readers of The Silver Nail.  Use code SILVERNAIL10 to get 10% off your first order when you create an account.

  1. That is a really pretty color! And I’m American and prefer the British spelling of “grey”. I also prefer “colour” but… yeah. And I’m a big NYX Cosmetics fan too. I want three of everything by them!
