OPI Vampsterdam

my husband left today for Japan, he gets to travel there to teach some classes! lucky, huh? he'll only be gone for two weeks, for a Navy wife that's nothing... but i will be ecstatic when he gets back, of course!

today we're looking at OPI Vampsterdam, a beautiful plummy pearl. i would have bought this one just for the name! everyone likes to look vampy sexy sometimes :) this is a warm toned purple and not as dark as some vampy shades... it would make a great transition polish for people who aren't ready to wear something completely blackish burgundy like OPI Black Cherry Chutney, this color is the little sister of shades like that! it has a good formula, easy to work with and opaque in two coats.

one coat Seche Base, two coats Vampsterdam and finished off with one coat Seche Vite.




it has a completely pearlescent finish in most lighting. if you shine a bright light directly on the polish you can see slight burgundy and blue shimmers, you can see them a little bit in the swatchie. the blue shimmers can make it look like you've got dust on your nails, i kept trying to wipe it off... oops! Ria :)
