OPI – Jasper Jade & Dance Legend – Tetraodon

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure has an extra special polish in it. I never thought I would own OPI Jasper Jade, but an awesome member of MUA just found this at Winners (now, what a 20 year old OPI was doing at a Winners I don’t know) and she posted about it but mentioned that is was really thick and she didn’t know if she could revive it or not. She said she could return it if she couldn’t get it to work and I posted NO! please send it to me before you return it!! So that’s how I came to own this beautiful old polish!

It was quite a mess when I got it, polish all in the cap and threads and really thick. I couldn’t even tell how much polish was in there, so I just cleaned up the neck, threads and cap and dumped in a ton of thinner. Too much it turns out. I left it open for a couple days off and on hoping it would evaporate a bit and thicken up, but it really didn’t. Well, that’s not going to stop me from using it! It took about 5 thin coats to build it up, but it’s just beautiful! 

I paired this with Dance Legend 1004 Tetraodon from the Caviar Collection. This is a great green jelly base with lots of small white square and black hex glitter. It builds up to be opaque in just 2 easy coats and dries pretty smooth so only 1 coat of topcoat is needed.  I don’t know if these two nail polishes are the best combo ever, but I really love both of these polishes!
