OPI Give Me Space is one of those magical polishes that you absolutely must acquire and apply to your nails to "get."

Navy blue jelly. Deep and richly pigmented and stays true blue on the nails, in any light is generously infused with holographic micro glitter. Application is a joy, the perfect formula flows softly off the Pro-Wide brush, sits sweetly down where it is placed and glides up the nail with no argument. No dragging, pooling, running or bubbling. Control was dreamy, I only did fussbudget refining, I had so little cleanup. The first coat is a little streaky but the second coat makes it all even, smooth and perfect. Dry time is fab with a good, fast dry top coat. I get decent wear from this polish, four solid days of pretty with just tip wear and a couple of tiny chips. Impressive, considering how fast my nails shed polish.

Gentle reader, this polish is everything. If you love blue and holo sparkles, get it, while you can!

On my accent nail is China Glaze Glistening Snow. Yeah, I know... I'm an asshole for showing a VHTF in this manner. But I had to add it to this mani, it is perfect with Give Me Space.

I applied this manicure for Christmas and, since I actually had a tiny bit of extra time that day, in spite of the fact that I was prepping for a party, this night I did some nail art. I stamped silver snowflakes with another impossible to find China Glaze. Millennium is my all time fave stamping polish, it is so perfect. China Glaze needs to bring it back. Seriously. Now.

On my accent nail, I used tapes to form a simple triangle shape to evoke a Christmas tree, painted on more OPI Give Me Space then used a little square crystal, turned to diamond as the topper. Everything is finished with more fast dry top coat... I think I used KB Shimmer Clearly on Top. Yep. I did. I have to tell you, I fucking love this top coat. It's almost. Almost as fast, hard cure, sick glossy as my beloved Seche Vite. I will be purchasing more, when this bottle runs out!

I don't do polish posts as often as I used to and I'm kind of missing them. I need to buckle down, swatch more, do more polish features.

Okay, did you get OPI Give Me Space? Don't you just love it? What did you wear on your tips for the holidays? Anything special? Nail art? A classic solid creme? Glittah bombshell sparkle? Share!
