after wearing OPI Tickle My France-Y yesterday, i really wanted to do a mannequin hand mani matching my skin tone. the best color i've found is OPI Sand In My Suit (isn't that a happy thought?!), a super light beige pearl with subtle shimmers. the formula is okay, i used three coats to get it to *complete* opacity. it's pretty thin but not watery so it's easy to use. you definitely want to add a shiny topcoat with this one, without it you'll miss out on most of the shimmer! i am super, super fair, the only brand that makes foundation light enough for me is Lancome, so this won't be a mannequin hand polish for most people. however, this color is gorgeous! if you're going for a nude (rather than mannequin hand) look, this a great choice... i think it will be lovely on all skin tones! it's one i like to reach for because it literally goes with everything and is appropriate for any situation.
one coat Seche Base, three coats SIMS, one coat Seche Vite.
the name of this one makes me think of going to the beach as a kid and leaving with a bathing suit that was about ten pounds heavier due to all the sand stuck in it... even now, sand just does not want to stay on the beach! my dogs always get a good brushing after the beach because they have it stuck all throughout their fur. Happy Sandy Beach Thoughts! Ria :)
