opi turn on the northern lights (island)

it's been a while since i bought an opi polish, but i knew i had to have turn on the northern lights from their last year's island collection.

opi describes it as "straight from the midnight sky, this deep purple sets the stage for an unforgettable show". i call it HOLLY COW! this polish is pure awesomeness!

it is a dark blue, filled with this absolutely spectactular "lit from within" shimmer that closely resembles the elusive "unicorn pee" pigment. the shimmer makes the base colour look more blurple/indigo even though it isn't.

formula is also good, it flows easily, and it has this crelly look that opi pulls off so well. i also keep forgeting that opi has one of my favourite brushes, so this is another plus. anyhow, if you still don't have your bottle, run for it!

 i used base (china glaze strong adhesion) + two layers of polish + top coat (essence btgnts).
