Unfor-greta-bly Blue


Name: Unfor-greta-bly Blue

Collection: Germany 2012

Colour: Sapphire Blue Shimmer

Coats: 2-3 coats


Pros: I have found that many shimmer polishes are watery and not durable but OPI’s “Unfor-greta-bly Blue” from their upcoming German Collection is really well formulated. I often avoid blue polishes because of the staining they cause; however, when I removed this polish I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not a Smurfy mess again! The colour is one I’ve seen before from OPI, even just this year with “Into the Night” from the Spider-Man Collection. I am pretty happy with this collection so far because it mixes some bold shimmers like this with some more subdued crèmes mixed in.


Cons: I don’t have any big problems with this polish but like any daring blue polish, this is not a very professional nail colour and I personally just didn’t feel like it was a very wearable colour for me.

Similar Shades: This is very similar to the amazing “Swimsuit Nailed It” from the Miss Universe Collection and a darker version can be found in “Into the Night.”

  1. Beautiful shade of blue, I love that it doesn't stain as that is a big factor with the darker colours.

  14. This is a beautiful color! I am so drawn to deep blues and blue-greens, but I agree with you that they don't look very professional. The staining has been an issue for me too so I usually stick with pinks and reds for work. I'm usually too nervous to try anything else! ;)

    1. I agree Jamie about keeping it professional. It is nice to wear more daring colours outside of work, just to change things up!
