I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect nude polish for months now. Although there are a few that I really like, I always seem to find something wrong with them (too warm-toned, too light, too dark, too sheer, etc.). Then one day, I happened upon OPI Samoan Sand. I had seen this polish before but never gravitated towards it for some reason. This time, though, it caught my eye!
I ended up wearing this polish for my maternity session on the beach, and it was absolutely perfect. So perfect, in fact, that I continued to re-polish my nails with it three times in a row after that, and that never happens!
The polish is a creamy nude with a hint of pink to it. The pink tone gives just enough life to the polish to enhance the skin around the hands and nails, rather than wash it out. It’s somewhat sheer – I apply three thin coats in order to get the opacity I’m after. But the end result is beautiful!
This isn’t one of the longer wearing polishes, but it tends to last on my nails without chipping anywhere from 3 – 6 days, which is great.
OPI Samoan Sand is available at Ulta.
