Silk stockings: OPI samoan sand

Kittytokaren has talked about her favourite 'silk stockings' polish, the one you reach for to make your nails look more shiny, more clean, more finished.

This is mine, for when I want to pretend I'm not wearing anything. One coat of China Glaze Calcium Gel Fortifier, one coat OPI Samoan Sand. It goes on a little streaky and milky, but dries to a lovely shiny, bright looking finish. It's perfect for disguising any stains or ridges. I also use this a lot for French manis over OPI Creme of Crete (old formula with bad stuff in it and a narrow brush) for the tips.
