Bags of Beauty Blog: Simple Nails with O.P.I Samoan Sand!

Sometimes, the simple the better! Simple colours are the most versatile- you can wear them almost anywhere from shopping to clubbing, and O.P.I's Samoan Sand shade is a lovely choice.

I brought this online a couple of weeks ago because they matched my platform heels from New Look and the manager of my local nail salon recommended the colour to me. And I always love it when my nails match my shoes.

The colour of the nail lacquer is a nude shade- a light beige shade, and in the image above I have applied 3 coats of the colour with top coat over it. It's lighter than my skin shade but from far away its looks like my nails aren't painted at all but they do look very well manicured and healthy (I always leave the house with my nails painted- I can't stand my bare nails).

This nail lacquer won an Instyle Beauty 2011 Award for the best Neutral Nail Colour for Dark Skin. I haven't got dark skin but this is still such a good buy! The only problem I have with this is that the lacquer is quite opaque and I needed 3 coats of it, but that's most likely the case with other light/nude shades so that's not really a big deal.

Have you tried this shade? Are you a fan of O.P.I? Do you like your nude shades?
