Sephora By OPI Havana Dreams

My dear friend from TheLooksForLess.com was on a hunt for a polish similar to the Chanel blue powder nails from the unreleased Cruise Collection 2011 and found this beauty. You can have a look at the whole story and her beautiful swatches here. She was so kind that she sent  me a bottle to try out too :) I have to say that I love the color. Makes my nails look so nice! BUT the application was a mess. This polish is streaky and it took me four coats to cover. This is my first experience with Sephora By OPI polishes, I just hope not all of them are like this.

  1. I LOVE that color. I wonder how similar it is to OPI What's With the Cattitude? Too bad it's streaky, though. I've been looking for a baby blue like that.

  2. You'd think that since it's from OPI, the formula wouldn't be so bad. But 4 coats? BOOO!!! However, that is a pretty color.

  3. I love Sephora by OPI, but I haven't tried this one yet so I can't say. They're certainly not all like that though. "Access 24/7" is one of my favorite jellies; it's a jelly that's perfect in only two coats. I was going to check this one out but I think I'll skip it based on your experiences. The whole line doesn't suck though. :-)

  4. I also adore $OPI! Don't give up, my favorite holo topcoat right now is It's Bouquet with Me that was released this last spring.

  7. Surprised that anything with the OPI name is that streaky, usually their creams are pretty perfect, and four coats? Not so much. But I will say, you make the end result look totally gorgeous, and I love that shade!

  9. I've been looking for the *perfect* baby blue polish for the last 4 months, appx. This is lovely. Unfortunately, I already bought about 25 trying to approximate that *perfect* color! I've really been trying to cut down recently...Can you think of any dupes for this, just off the top of your head?
    I have a few Sephora OPIs, and the consistency is really nice, so don't give on the brand ;)

  16. same as shannon, its a little streaky, but it blends itself out. 3-4 coats were worth it because its a beautiful color!!! :)
