Don't forget my poll!  Only a few days left to vote for next month's featured finish! 

Hi everyone!  You may have noticed new tabs in my navigation bar.  I finally organized my stash!  I've decided that I'm going to get super serious about this.  It's a pita to try to find colors when they aren't organized!  I didn't really mind until I started doing my nails every day though.  I'll also be ordering nail plates so I can have swatches of all my colors to look at.  I think that makes things so much easier.  Not enough polishes look the same in the bottle!  I've also put up my swap/wish lists.  I want to do some swapping with people!  I don't have many I want to get rid of, but I'd be happy to do some custom purchases for swaps (if I can find the stuff... this area sucks for polishes!). 

Anyway, today is one of the polishes I've wanted for AGES!  I saw the first swatch ever when it came out (I don't even remember when!) and HAD to have it!  I give you: OPI Ink!  

Ink is a dark, shimmery, flecky, duochrome-y beautiful purple.  It is opaque in three coats, possibly two if you use thick coats or are more careful than I am.  I didn't notice any running, and had pretty great control of it.  You can actually tell in the pictures since I didn't do clean-up on there.  There are only a few spots where the brush slipped because it's too wide.  I didn't have staining and it was easy to remove.  LOVE! 

Can almost catch the blue duochrome on a few of these nails...
This polish is actually a little bit more duochrome irl.  Yes, there is some there!  It goes from dark purple to dark blue.  I love it.  Everything about it.  I am so glad I finally picked it up!  What do you think?  That's all I've got for today. Thanks for looking!

  1. I LOVE this color, it's one of my favorite OPIs. Grape Set Match from the Serena Williams duos is like a lighter version of this, it's worth checking out if you like this color :) thanks for the swatches! :D

  2. This is such a gorgeous shade - looks good on you! And, yeah, when I first saw it in person, I thought the colour looked exactly like pen ink! Perfection!

  3. @All The Pretty PolishHave it! LOVE it! I'm getting all the Serena William's polishes. She knocked them out of the park!

  4. Ooh love it! My first thought also, was that it resembled Grape Set Match. So pretty!

  5. SO pretty! I've seen this one in Ulta... but never pick it up! Maybe I need to! :)

  6. @Olivia C.DO IT! The bottle color is a TAD bit deceiving, but it is MUCH prettier on the nail irl!

  7. Love the color! I've wanted to get OPI Ink but never got around to it.

  8. I adore this polish. It's one of my go to shades esp on my toes year round - it knows no season! I hope they never take this out of the classics collection! Looks great on you Kate!

  9. Ooooh OPI Ink, it was my first OPI :)
