This is just one of those colors that I KNEW was going to be spectacular. All the swatches I saw made me want it more and more, until I just had to get it. And to say I'm not disappointed is a true understatement.
This. Color. Is. EVERYTHING. It's a dusky bluish purple hybrid that's shot through with tons of multicolored shimmer. It's almost periwinkle, but on the darker end of the spectrum. The color glides on effortlessly and is extremely buildable -- I used two coats here and my nails are perfectly opaque, but I can see that a third coat would make them appear more blue instead of purple. I liked them more on the purple side, though, so I stopped at two.
I also think this is one of those shades that would be equally perfect on tips and toes. In fact, I'm getting my first pedicure since the accident on Saturday (THANK THE LORD) and I may just have them paint my toes with this baby!
I have to admit, I really don't love the name, especially with what it actually references about New Orleans. But I'm willing to overlook it because the color is just that stunningly gorgeous. It seems, though, that OPI would have been smart to name it after the blues, don't you think? In any case ... laissez les bon temps roulez!
