Review: OPI for Sephora - 212 Sephora Nail Colour

This is my second OPI for Sephora polish I've tried. I had a pale pink one that I can't recall the name of, but its since vanished (after ONE use, I might add.) I threw this 212 Sephora Nail Colour ($9) in my shopping cart when it popped up as a suggestion. I have not jumped on the matte nail polish trend yet. I personally like my nails shiny. But I have and always will really like glittery polishes. When I was younger, I had these 2 Wet'n'Wild polishes, one was a multi-colored glitter in clear polish and the other was a silver glitter in clear polish. I used them ALL THE TIME. I actually kind of wish they still made them... This one was inspired by New York City's after-dark dazzle, created specially for the new Sephora in Times Square. It's only available online and at the 5 Times Square location. It boasts being long-wearing, chip-resistant, GREEN and free of DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde. I'm sold.

I suggest using a base coat AND one coat of a dark polish (like MAC's Nocturnelle) and then layer 212 on top of that and top with a top-coat. I suggest this because the first time I used it, I didn't and instead used 2 coats of 212. I had a HELL of a time getting it off. The glitter stuck like glue. Besides that, I love the color and shimmery glitz it brings to your fingertips.

It would've been awesome if you included a swatch! I really wanted to try this shade. :)
