Yay Monday! *sigh* It’s the Monday after a time change and boy do I miss that hour right about now… but it’s ok because daylight savings time is a sign of Spring and to celebrate that, I’m going green. Today’s Mani Monday belongs to Sephora by OPI’s ‘Leaf Him at the Altar’. I love this name so much! It always reminds me of the movie ‘Runaway Bride’ with Richard Gere and Julia Roberts – albeit not the best movie but I watched it anyways. And as usual, I’ve done the youtubing in order to help refresh your memory on that film.
Isn’t that an appropriate segue into the punny-ness that is ‘Leaf Him at the Altar’? Anyways, this is a bottle of polish I’ve had forever and used many times. Actually I think this might have been my very first Sephora by OPI polish, otherwise known as the beginning of the slippery slope.
As you can see, I’ve used quite a bit of this bottle already, but that’s a good thing! What’s the point of having nail polish if you don’t use it right? The colour of this polish is what I would call a cool silvery vine green. I am a fan of green nail polish but this is one of my favorites because the silver gives it a foil feeling so it reflects light really nicely.
The formula of this polish is relatively thin and isn’t thick or goopy at all, despite how long I’ve had it. It goes on really easily and I have three very thin coats on in the photos above, but you could reach opacity with two good size coats. I don’t mind the Sephora OPI brush and I like the bigger cap on the polish because I feel like I have more control when I’m painting my nails with it (and I like control).
I am going to admit that I am really bad for not using a top coat and typing really hard with the tips of my nails so it is rare for my polish to last for several days with no chipping and tip wear. This one lasts for about 4 days, even with the disregard I show my nails, so that’s a huge thumbs up in my books.
So What Would Argenplath Pay?
I paid $12 + tax for this polish from Sephora and as you can probably tell, it’s definitely a polish I love a lot. I generally get compliments on this colour and I’ve used it so much that we’re talking minimal cost per wear now. If you’re like me and prefer metallics and greens to red and pink polishes, I would suggest picking up a bottle of ‘Leaf Him at the Altar”, even if it’s just for the punny name.
